Fabric-o-Rama.

Graphic and textile designer Michelle Engel Bencsko of Cicada Studio has debuted a new fabric line in her etsy shop entitled Dogwood, her fun new quilting fabric collection. Cicada Studio is selling some of her beautiful signature fabrics in small quilting squares, and it's getting chilly out there, so no time like the present to get your quilting on! Cicada Studio offers the fabrics in larger swatches, as well as mixed bags of smaller 6.5" squares of various fabrics which could be used for a myriad of small projects.


The new fabric collection is entitled Dogwood and all Cicada Studio linen swatches are original textile designs by Michelle Engel Bencsko. They are made of 100% Belgian linen and addition to quilting projects, Cicada Studio offers up loads of sewing projects ideas for these swatches, such as pillows, sachets, wallets and many more. She's also got a flickr photo group, Cicada Studio Textiles, dedicated to craft projects made from her line of fabrics if you seek any further inspiration. You can also find home decor items already handmade from these fabrics at Cicada Home, Cicado Studio's companion etsy shop.

I'm a big fan of Michelle's work.

I've used her fabric in a couple recent projects:
