Fabric Collection Review: Moda Sultry by Basicgrey

Basicgrey is traditionally a paper design company that branched out and introduced their Sultry paper line into fabric for Moda. I ordered a charm pack that consisted of all 40 selections in this particular line, and frankly, I feel most of these designs translated very well for use in the sewing room.

Check out the entire collection online HERE at the Fat Quarter Shop.

In this collection you will find botanical prints and smooth geometrics that have a wonderful range that can please the palates of fans of shabby chic to whimsy to contemporary sleek. The color palette of Raspberry, Vanilla, Chocolate and Pistachio hues mesh very well with current trends. The only snag I had, however, was that I was left wanting in the chocolate-hued category. There were very few selections that were of a predominantly brown design. To someone who blends and harmonizes fabrics in projects such as me, (and those millions of quilters out there especially) the lack of a few more balancing darks in this fabric family does leave me wanting (just a tad). But overall, this truly is an interesting collection.
