I can’t do it justice. This fabric, that is. I can’t show you a good enough photo of it.
Marcia Derse’s latest fabric collection, Third in Line.
I’ve seen quite a few photos of it online but none seem to get it quite right. The scale doesn’t come through or the colors are off.
AND, guess, what, the colors in my photos are off and the scale doesn’t come through. Take it on faith — it’s spectacular. All of it. I have some from her previous two lines and I had seen Third in Line at fall market. Where Marcia handed me this because I looked like a girl who likes chartreuse:
You had me at hello….. I gave the fabric back like a good girl. It was hard to be separated from my true love for this long, but now I have you, my pretty.
ANYWAYS, where was I? Oh yes, the fabrics. If you don’t trust your monitor (or me), seek them out to see in person or order a couple that pique your curiosity. Or, you can order a sampler of 50 – 2″ x 2″ pieces from all three collections. I think you may want a bigger piece….i’m just sayin’.
The colors are fabulous, the size of the prints is large and in charge. I am in love, can you tell?
I almost didn’t get the red bundle (you know, trying to be slightly conservative, shall we say). ‘t would have been a big mistake.
::sigh:: I do have a purpose in mind for these lovelies. To be divulged at a later date. I was just so excited by them that I had to have show and tell.
And lest you think I’ve been starting more projects than I’ve been finishing (is that my conscience talking?!??!?!!! hush!). I finished both Kathy Davis quilts. Never thought I’d see the day when I put a cream colored binding on anything, but it works!
Wish me caffeine and fortitude, I’m off to work a shop hop for a few days. See you on the flip side!
