You may or may not have heard that there is a new line of fabrics that is now available at Jo-Ann Fabrics, it is House and Garden by Cloud 9 Fabrics. One of the things that makes this line so special is that, like all Clould 9 Fabrics, it is 100% organic cotton. A first for Jo-Ann Fabrics.
My local store here in Tampa is carrying 8 of the 12 prints that were designed exclusively for Jo-Ann's, and I was very excited to pick some up yesterday and that I got the first cut off of each of the bolts. It is of good quality and weight, though not as soft as most designer fabric. The only major downside was the price tag. I am not use to paying $14.99 a yard for fabric at Jo-Ann's but I had to remind myself it is organic and I would expect pay that price for organic at a quilt shop. At least at Jo-Ann's I was able to use my 30% off total purchase coupon.
The prints have a fresh modern feel especially the yellow mod flowers but I am obsessed with these chevrons. The color range is current and what I want to see more of in my stash. I know exactly what I want to make with these fabrics and I can't wait to cut into them this weekend.
