The new fabric collection for this catalogue is Sweetgrass Prairie, which has a lot of small calico prints, including a lot of good light prints. I find it challenging to find a good selection of light prints these days, so I am very tempted by this collection. I particularly love this quilt, designed by Mari Martin for the collection:

If that wasn't enough, I also really like the Pearadise collection by Jenni Calo:
I could use the two dark prints for my Collector quilt, which still needs more darks. I love the scattered apples and pears in the middle, and the dots and cross hatched blenders would be useful too.
Sigh. I have a huge backlog of quilts that I already have fabric for, and there is no way that I need more.
I do want to reiterate what a great deal Connecting Threads is for Canadians, though. Americans can find reasonably priced quilt fabric all over, but in Canada it is very dear, and the shipping and duty charges can be painful for imported fabric. Connecting Threads has a flat rate $7 shipping charge to Canada, and they pre-calculate the duty, so it is extremely reasonable to buy from them. They also have many great deals on notions and supplies. Other international readers are out of luck, though, because I think they still only ship to North American addresses.
Me? I guess I'll keep thinking about it for now...
