I had some questions about the fabric I used in my Tea Swap project. I am not sure how old these two fabrics are since they were "stash busters" but I did a search at quiltshops.com and the Lucy's Feather Bed fabric is still listed at one store. The other fabric, from the Mama's Kitchen line, is somewhere, I'm sure.
I do love kitchen fabric, as you know. This vintage kitchen fabric is one I haven't used yet. It has teapots and kitchen curtains, among other fun kitchy things.
This one is a Japanese print combining fruit and elephants. I'm not sure now they decided to put those 2 things together but it turned out darling. Love the colors, too.
This one is another Japanese fabric that takes a theme from American snack/breakfast food. My favorite part is the cereal box.
I'm not sure if I this fabric has made it on my blog on a Friday or not. I love strawberries on fabric. It is a Japanese reproduction, too.
I'm going to make a teapot with this narrow stripe. I'm loving this turquoise color right now. I think the turquoise is perfect for this time of year.
Here is a reproduction cheater fabric. I think in the right project this would be really sweet and if it was hand quilted I think it could pass for the real thing - at least without my glasses.
Easter is on the way. These little bunnies (more Japanese) are hopping around strawberries. I only have a tiny piece of this fabric. I have an idea for it but I'm not sure I have enough to do what I plan. We'll see.
The weekend is upon us but I won't really have time to do much sewing. I am working on taxes tomorrow. Ick. Feel sorry for me! I hope you have more fun that I will have.
