I enjoy a good metallic fabric, don’t you? I love that fabrics with a bit of sparkle are making a comeback. When I first started quilting around 20 years ago, metallics were hot and everyone loved to call them, “quilter’s gold” because they added just the right touch of elegance to any project.
Hibiscus – Artisan Spirit Shimmer in Shades of Pink
Northcott has just come out with a beautiful line of shimmery basics called Artisan Spirit. The 9 piece fat quarter bundles include a carefully selected gradation of colors in several rich color families.
Peacock – Artisan Spirit Shimmer in Shades of Teal
Aren’t they just stunning? I am a sucker for color, and I tend to prefer solid or tone-on-tone fabrics that “read” solid from a distance.

I would love the purple and teal colours. I have this in the brown and grey tones and love them. I got them to make place mats for my girlfriend to match a wall hanging.
arent these to die for?…I just bought 3 pieces of the teals this past weekend at a show!
Peacock looks lovely!
Don’t really like the metallic. The ones I have used have faded leaving a dull fabric behind. Not what I want in the quilts I work hard on.
The major problem I have with metallic on fabric is it is not permanent. They are fine in a wall hanging or art quilt but wash it and sooner or later it is gone.
I think they are all pretty the pink would be fun to work with
Teals and purples are my favorites.
I like to play with greens and blues.
Wow..any of those sets would make the perfect bargello style quilt!
Do you sew with a special needle when sewing with metallics? Love the colors you showed.
these are gorgeous. i love playing with pinks and blues
Oh so yummy!! What beautiful colors and so hard to choose from, but it would have to be the pink, along with some of the Tea to put together for our 6 year old great granddaughter.
oops…..meant to say Teal
Love the Peacock colours!!! Gorgeous lines in all of the colourways!!
I really love the teal! 😀
I am loving the ‘earth’ way.
