That Special Spark

You know the one. You feel it when you find that perfect fabric. It sparks your imagination and you dream of the possibilities of what that fabric can become. Daryl at Fabric Spark clearly knows that spark well and she's been honing it cleverly while stocking her Toronto-based online shop. Yes, another wonderful Canadian online quilt shop! Lucky us! And I feel very lucky that Fabric Spark has become a sponsor of Quilt Matters. Thank you, Fabric Spark!

If you haven't come across Fabric Spark yet, let me introduce you. They carry beautiful designer fabric from Alexander Henry, Michael Miller, Robert Kaufman, Riley Blake, Birch, Art Gallery and more. And yes, even Cotton + Steel! They also carry a great selection of solids, pre-cuts, kits, and independent patterns. And they are always adding new fabrics.

I love that they give ideas or a "Spark" for each fabric to get your imagination going. I've included the Spark for each of my favourite finds below so you can see what I mean.

Overland Journey Lime - Art Gallery

"Spark - This collection really looks fantastic together and would make a great patchwork on anything. This fabric would also make a beautiful duvet cover on its own."


Classical Elements - Geometric Light Grey

"Spark - A very subtle approach to put them all together in a patchwork project or great neutral decor fabric for table top or bedding."


Stof Twist - Large Dots

"Spark - I want to put the dots together in a beach bag - perfect for carrying your water bottle, towel, summer reading, and sunscreen. The dots just beg to be somewhere bright, cheerful, and casual."


Elementary Equations by Sweetwater:

"Spark - Pair with Calendar or use on its own for a school bag, lunch bag, fun garment, or kid's room decor. Hey, some people like Math!"


Pepe in Paris by Riley Blake

"Spark - Where to start? I love this fabric and the whole collection for any kid project. I see clothing, a quilt, bedding, a backpack, a sun hat, you name it. But it would be fun for adult clothes too. Make that joie de vivre into a tank top pour une promenade dans le parc?"


This is just a small taste of what you'll find over at Fabric Spark. You can head on over now and find that spark! Enjoy!
