No. 6: 7, 6, 6, 5

A few things are new here in this sixth edition of The Fabric Files!

First, I took all of the photos in the fabrics' "natural habitat," aka, my dining room turned fabric shop. As I still consider myself an amateur photographer, I think these photos more accurately capture the true colors of the fabrics than the stark white background.

And second, each of the fabric combinations includes a suggested quilt pattern that will work with that combination! You get to choose the increments and number of fabrics you need, so there's no need to be limited by the suggestion!

As always, clicking the name of each fabric will take you to the shop listing where you can see the fabric in more detail and choose your amount of yardage.
