PB&J by BasicGrey

PB&J by BasicGrey, Moda Fabrics

Primary colors don't get any better than this...the newest collection from BasicGrey: PB&J!  There are a lot of fun prints in this collection as well as some beautiful florals and versatile blenders.  I love the Thermos print which gives a peak at all of the prints in the collection on the different letters of the alphabet:

There is no shortage of beautiful florals in this collection:

My favorite print is called Raspberry Jam and has a very fun hand-drawn look to it.  It's available in blue and in red.

2wenty Thr3e by Eric and Julie Comstock


2wenty Thr3e by Eric and Julie Comstock
This versatile stack of prints from Eric and Julie Comstock, aka Cosmo Cricket, is now available at the shop.  I'm loving the colors of this line and really enjoy the small bits of text in the tickets prints.  There's also a really fun label print that can be used in so many ways on so many projects....I'm excited to see where it shows up in finished pieces.

As usual, I've grouped the prints into mini bundles, if you want a variety of colors of the same print.


I am particularly enamored with the Filmstrip Bundle show below.

The Hollywood Stars print looks entirely differently depending on whether you are focusing on the positive or negative space.  Such a fun print!  It's available in three colors:  petal, pavement and clementine.

2wenty Thr3e charm packs are also available with 5-inch squares of every print in the collection.  A great way to get started on a quick project and also a fun way to preview the entire collection.
