Its Friday - here are some fabulous fabrics

22 comments
My arm is 90%, thanks for all your good wishes to me. I'm back sewing but have nothing really I can show. So here are some fabulous fabrics I picked up over the Labor Day sales. I got a few from Kathy at Pink Chalk Fabric and some from Sew Mama Sew.

I think this border print would be really cute for one of my dresses. I'm sure its for pillow cases but It could work for lots of things.

I have plans for 2 of these but the dress pattern fabric was so unusual and cute I couldn't pass it up. Michele at Calico Daisy pointed it out to me. Thanks Michele. I think ;-).

This is a pop garden fabric that I just loved so I got just a small piece. It's so pretty. I couldn't decide what color to get in this print but you can't go wrong with the softer palate.

I've really enjoyed seeing this 1974 line from Urban Chicks everywhere. I like these small charm packs. They give you a taste of the fabric for a small price.

Have a good weekend everyone.

I love that border print -- and can definitely see one of your dress appliques from that!
Charm packs are great -- for scrappy quilters they're pure heaven! :-)

I like that dress pattern fabric. How cute! I have 1974 on my list to get but I am trying to use what I have (not sure if it is working)

Very pretty fabrics! It's always fun to have some new things for fresh inspiration. I especially love that 1974 line. I've not used charm squares before. They do look like fun though!

All cute. Hope all is well.

I love your fabrics...especially the border print and the one with dresses on it...so cute! What great finds! =)

Thimbleanna said...

Ooooh ... yummy fabrics! You must show us if you make a dress from that border print! I've never had a charm pack before but I'm getting one soon from Anna M. and I'm very excited!

Susan said...

I like charm packs for that same reason...and now they are coming out with "twice the charm" a 5"x10" set of the whole collection.

So happy to hear the arm is mending.

Great fabrics Nanette. Have fun using it all. :-) I have that first one, the pink border, as little cafe curtains in the guest room.

What beautiful fabric. You can never have too much. Mimi

CJ said...

Oh, I see you couldn't resist the 1974 - a charm pack AND some of the red dot with the turquoise around each dot. :D I like that print with the pattern pieces too. Such lovely fabrics to feast the eyes on. Thanks for sharing.

Eileen said...

Oh yes, I can just see a little dress made from that pillow case fabric. And the dress pattern fabric is terrific! I would not want to cut that either. But might be tempted to try making one of the dresses!
Glad your arm is almost better. :-)

Kim said...

Lots of pretties again this week :)
So, I was reading Happy Zombie's fabric post too and found this site:

a few just cried out your name...lol

Mary said...

I do love charm packs, but I use them at a far slower pace than I buy them.

Then again, that could be said of all of my fabric.

But I am vicariously shopping for fabric with you right now. Thanks.

John said...

I too couldn't resist the 1974 charm packs ... in fact, I bought 2 of them! Not sure yet what I'm going to do with them, but now I'm excited to see what you come up with ...

Ravenhill said...

I really love the urban chicks fabric I am seeing everywhere too! I want some too! This reminds me I should place an order... Thanks for the beautiful eye candy!
