Joel Dewberry Deer Valley Fabrics

More fabrics from Joel Dewberry.  These fabrics are from his Deer Valley collection.

The Deer Valley is a peaceful and beautiful collection of rustic prints inspired by mountain meadows and the occassional passing deer. Columbines, wildflowers, and mountain gems all help usher in an early spring.

I have already been able to sew something in these new fabrics, and loved it!!
This is a favorite print for me, becuase I am married to a huge hunting fan.  I have have told my husband for years that we will never have a dead animal head in our home unless he has his own den.  Now that I have found this fabric, I keep joking with him that this is how he will get a deer in the house.  I will just decorate with it!!  He laughs, oh well, I tried!

Joel Dewberry Aviary Fabrics

I have started selling fabric!! Yeah!! So many fun prints.
These fabrics are designed by Joel Dewberry, who gets his inspiration from nature. Because of mine and my husbands love for being outdoors, this fabric feels close to home. I just love this fabric, oh the possibilities!!
The Aviary Collection, is a perfect retreat to the garden. It recreates the beauty and spirit that are synonymous with a relaxing garden setting. From the cherry blossom and the sparrow motif to the rich wood grain texture, Aviary transports the elegant design of nature to the luxurious medium of fabric. Sparrows - Dark Green
Wood grain
Sunburst Damask
These are some projects that I was able to already sew!! I really love working with this fabric, it has such high quality, and it shows.
Each of these aprons that I made were made for 2 mom and their daughters. How fun to match in style while making that fantastic batch of cookies.

If you are interested in any of these fabrics, please let me know. I can sell anywhere from 1/2 a yard to more. I will slowly get more fabrics in stock, through my husbands patience and my pocket book. :)
Check out his site, and if there is a fabric you like, I can get it for you -
I sell these fabrics at $7.95 a yard
