The first bolts of the new Anika collection were delivered yesterday, and I am SO EXCITED! It will still be a while before the bulk of the fabric arrives – it has to ship all the way from India and make its way through customs – but I can at least get started working with the fabric, sewing up samples and sending out swatches. What should I make with all of this? Any ideas??

    ooh, I can't wait for this line! I will definitely be scooping up a bunch of the fox fabric! I think a birch quilt would also work well for the Anika fabrics (http://www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransson/2010/04/birch-quilt.html)

    Look at it!!!! We cannot wait to get our hands on it here!!! And we can't wait to see all the cool things people make with it!

  3. You should make some baby quilts, dresses, pillows, mug rugs, table runner and a big give away…GRIN

    Oh I am so taken with this fabric, I wouldn't know what to make I can't think, my mind is whirling, when will we be able to get this lovely fabric?

    Congratulations it's beautiful. I think some patchwork skirts or dresses for little girls would be nice. Cushions, quilts so many beautiful things you could make with them. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Good luck

    Oh! Lovely! Can't wait to see it in person! Have you seen the Oliver + S Little Things to Sew book? There is an absolutely adorable bear carrier that would look so cute in any of these fabrics. I also love the idea of a patchwork skirt as Eco Fabrics suggested.

    I am in love with those foxes! I think they would make the prettiest little boys top with some linen mixed in! Just gorgeous!!

    Thanks for your comments, everybody! Marie – I haven't seen the Oliver + S book yet, but I love the patterns and am hoping to try one out with Anika next week (traslation: sometime in the next few months).
    ZooTZMomma – I love the idea of mixing in linen! I'm a little obsessed with the flax-y natural linen right now.
    OH! And Sewhappy, I'm expecting it around mid-April, at this point. I'll keep you posted!

    I found your fabric through Red Pepper Quilts and Fabricworm.com, I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!!! I'm just a quilting beginner so I couldn't possibly suggest what you should create with them, all I know ifI have to get me some!

    Congratulations on your fabulous fabric line!!!
