NYC and purl soho

I was in NYC for work recently and I stopped by purl soho for the first time. I love visiting fabric shops when I'm traveling! I LOVE to visit City Quilter when I'm in New York (they've expanded the store this past year!) but this was my first visit to purl soho, a shop that features all kinds of textiles. (There were a lot of knitters when I was there.) And bonus, Soho is my second favorite NYC district (after Chelsea, of course).

While at purl soho, I decided I must by some fabric and was instantly drawn to a bundle of half yard prints in yellows and grays that I knew I had to have. I don't follow fabric lines so I didn't realize my purchase is from the hottest line of the season, Echo by Lotta Jansdotter. Many of the quilt bloggers I follow are talking about Lotta's first line, including Rachel from Stitched in Color.

I'm feeling like one of the cool kids in quilt class today!
