I know some folks don't buy collections and that's a-okay. I personally like collections for a few reasons. I don't really have a problem with putting colors together or picking fabrics that would fit together in a color scheme. I just like how designers put together various prints I would probably never combine! Most of my quilts would be color-specific without the variety of prints. That's one reason I love Anna Maria Horner's collections so much. Usually she has a wide variety of prints that I would never have put together and they end up looking incredible together.
One of my current favorite collections is Tinsel by Cotton + Steel. I absolutely LOVE the vintage look of these fabrics. I also absolutely love the snow globe fabric. The ladies of C+S have each contributed to this collection and I think they nailed it.
Currently, I am waiting for my purchase of Tinsel...Christmas in June sounds like a wonderful idea! I purchased a yard bundle from @noodlebugfabrics on Instagram. She had the best price by far. I'm just waiting for it to arrive :) I have so many projects in my mind, but I'm thinking a Christmas quilt will have to make it's way to the top of the list.
