Fabric Friday ~ 30 March 2012

I’m not sure if there really is a “Fabric Friday”…but there is now! I’m not waiting for “Stash Sunday”!

Lookie what just came in the mail!

My Fat Quarter bundle of Flea Market Fancy (the Legacy reprint) by Denyse Schmidt!

LOVE LOVE LOVE Denyse’s fabrics. All of them. Flea Market Fancy, Hope Valley, Katie Jump Rope, Country Fair, Greenfield Hill.

A big hug to my beautiful friend, April, for giving me a gift certificate to Hawthorne Threads! That FQ bundle only cost me $5.95! 🙂

I have to go pet my fabric now…you all have a great weekend.

Fabric Friday ~ My Stash Wish List

Was flipping through the new Connecting Threads catalog last night and thought I’d share with you my IF I HAD SOME EXTRA MONEY HERE’S WHAT I WANT TO BUY fabric…big sigh.

Root of the Madder

The Madder plant’s roots have been used for centuries to dye textiles warm reddish-brown hues. Clear blue was a popular accent color in the 19th century madder prints, as it complements the earth tones nicely, allowing their richness to really come through. We reproduced post-Civil War era ditsy motifs to maintain the historic feel of our madder group and added coordinating solids to calm the busy ditsies. Because of the small scale of the prints, this collection is an excellent choice for scrappy quilts.

The rest of the samples are from the Fat Quarter Shop:
