Pack your bags and let’s get a head start on planning that vacation!  I have a fat quarter set of Out and About from Caleb Gray.  If the nice weather doesn’t come to you…then go to it!

Of course this collection doesn’t have to be just for little boys, though it does have a primary color palette, boyish appeal to it…I just have way more cars and planes scattered about than anything else.

My son’s playroom (which is where I really should have taken a few photos!!!) has a poster map of the U.S. made from license plates and a huge Route 66 sign on the wall.  This collection would look great in his room!  The little car lover…

Sherry VF says:

I like the yellow because there is lots of contrast in color values and it just looks more playful. Thanks.

I agree Sherry!  The navy and yellow contrast is one of the most stunning features of the collection!  Send me an email at christie.fabricshopper [at] gmail [dot] com and let me know where to send your fabric!

Thanks to all who participated!

Okay.  I admit it.  I judge a book by it’s cover.  If it has pretty fabric on the front and promises simple patterns for my handmade life then I’m hooked.

Thankfully I don’t have all the money or talent in the world to buy all the books that catch my eye.  I’d love to review sewing books, but instead, today I’m just passing along attention to some of the latest ones out there.  I know there are so many that have similar, recycled projects in them, maybe nothing new for you.  But there’s always someone new coming along just waiting to drool over some pretty sewing projects!  Give one a try and let us know what you think, I’ll even let you talk on here!
