Indelible Blog Hop


My friend Katarina recently released her first line of fabric, Indelible, with Art Gallery Fabrics and to say that I'm in love with it is an understatement. Kinda along the lines of saying I sort of like pie,  I own a few quilts, or we've watched a little bit of soccer the last few weeks.


I first got glimpses of it on her blog in early 2014.  And since then I stalked the Internet to find more. And more.  And more.


The colors are rich, saturated and combinations that are new to me . . . yet familiar.  The deep eggplant next to the mustard yellows, soft grays and bright teals are sophisticated while the prints and patterns are fresh and a bit whimsical.  The repeating bird print owns me.  As do the chevrons.  And the birch bark trees.


Don't even get me started on the lining fabric print.  I don't know what it is and think that's part of why I love it so much.  I've studied it more than any one person probably should rightfully study fabric.



I bought small cuts of the entire line but after having it in my hands I know that I need to buy yardage of several of the prints. This project bag is just the tip of the iceberg of the love affair that is going to be Dana and Indelible.

Thanks for including me in your Blog Hop Katarina.  Can't wait to see what you design next!

P.S.  I made this bag to carry projects with me to Sew-OK. If you'll be there too, don't get any crazy ideas about trying to steal my bag.  I'm watching you.  I didn't follow a pattern... just sort of winged it.  I used Annie's Soft & Stable to make it so it stands up on its own.

Oh goodness Dana...I totally get what you are talking about...that is fabulous fabric!!

Love the bag...the different look of the straps confused me at first but I'm guessing you have them reversed on each side right?:)
