    Well, it's raining here. Again. Since I can't work in the garden right now I'll post more fabric pictures.

    This group by South Sea Imports is due out in January - February 2010. A long wait but these look beautiful.

    What struck me when I first saw these designs was the beautiful vivid blue mountain coordinate. I was thinking that it's too strong a blue, but in the context of the other prints it adds a rich, deep, and welcome tone. And the group would be definitely lacking something if this was left out.

    So ... if any of you have been to the Rocky Mountains (I haven't), or live there, when you think of the mountains, do you think of them as blue?

    Now the wildflowers. They have a "painted" look.

    My daughter is going to love these. She's a horse freak - in fact, she's competing in an equestrian competition today. I may have to pick up some of the horse fabric when it comes out.

    You're right--the colors are so vibrant. The blue is eye catching.

    When I was in elementary/jr. high we vacationed in the wild west. To answer your question, yes, the mountains can look blue, weather, season, direction, time of day, all play a part in their magnificent colorings. I loved when they had a pinkish tinge as the sun sank.

    A trip to the Rockies is a definite bucket list item, IMHO.

    I'll definitely let you all know when the fabric is actually available. It's still a "future" group, not due out until early next year.

    I figure most quilters probably have a few projects to keep them busy in the meanwhile. :wink:

    The manufacturer is working on a project sheet, that I assume will be made available by the time the fabrics are ready. Here's a picture, maybe it will give you an idea.

    I read your comment about the blue mountains with a smile, since there is NEVER enough blue anywhere for me, but when I saw the fabric, and thought about what you had written, I thought ... you just have never seen Wyoming (Big Sky Country) ...
    then, I looked back up at your avatar and noted the New York location and totally understood ... the brown ... all of it totally capture the Grand Tetons ... and the Rocky Mountains ... the Cascades are a bit smaller ...
    Lest you think I am feeling a bit superior, I finally met a New Yorker one time and he had a devil of a time convincing ME that the state of New York was a bit more than concrete jungle ... you even have dairies over there!
    LOL ... I had always just assumed that anything east of the Mississippi and heading NE had to be concrete and neon ... silly me! :oops:
    The world is a truly amazing place
    I think that this line of fabric is just a must have ... IMHO

    Quiltluvr - I've wanted to see the Grand Tetons since I was ten or eleven years old. So, yes, it is on my "bucket list".

    Omak - New York City definitely is all concrete and neon. But here in upstate NY, we have a lot of variety! There's wine country - lots of vineyards and wineries - in the finger lakes (central part of the state) and also along the shore of Lake Erie. Near the Lake Ontario shore, the climate is a few degrees milder so they grow apples, cherries, peaches, plums and pears. New York State is the second largest producer of apples (albeit a DISTANT second to Washington State)! We also grow a lot of potatoes and cabbage, and yes there are quite a few dairy farms, though less than there used to be, as the price paid for milk is so low.

    and, I am always looking for the brown/red so I could make my limousin cattle ... Hereford ... red angus ... Santa Gertrudis ... red cows!
    Instead, I get stuck with HOLSTEIN hide ... well, longhorn could look like that, too ...
    Finally! Someone who seems to understand/know western colors

    I keep coming back to look at this line of fabric.
    It is wonderful.
    And, I always check the "horsehair" ... just thinking of the quilt I will make of my cattle ... and, I really looked at it today and realized ... it really is a better pick for the cattle.
    Horse hair usually lies flat, even in the winter and they are shaggy, the horse hair is straight ...
    but, my cattle, especially in winter has curly hair ...
    just a fun thing ... leave it to a country girl to look and think ... It is a good line.

    be good backing anyway I will be watching for it thanks for posting all of these fabric pics Dodie
