New Year Fabric Friday

43 comments
Yes, Santa brought me fabric. Well, Mrs. Santa. ahem. Sometimes a girl has to take care of herself.
Love my Lecien from Fat Quarter Shop. I'm not sure what I'll do with it yet but it is very pretty. And what exactly is the correct pronouciation to Lecien? Anyone?
I really like the fairy folksy feel to this novelty fabric. The little doggie, the little house with the cat on the top and of course the fruit and flowers are shown off so sweetly.
The grid of daisies will make this fabric work well in many of my started and dreamed about projects, I'm sure.
Strawberries! Gotta love them. I really have quite a few prints with strawberries. I think I prefer strawberries to cherries.
My favorite of the bunch is this little lacy bouquet in several color ways. It is just very sweet.
I also got just a few 1 yard cuts. This patchwork fabric with strawberries, cherries, dots and little houses can be fussy cut or left as is.
I usually don't go in for Bambi prints but for some reason this print really attracted me. And I also got a 1 yard cut of the white strawberries above.The small details in the above prints drew me to them. It is hard to tell how cute they are from my photos.
Can you see the sweet little stamps with birdies, bees, houses, ladybugs, flowers and more all over them. Another one I'm not sure how to use, but oh how fun thinking about it.

I'm binding a quilt this weekend. More on that Monday.

lots of fun fabric! I have a Lecien sushi roll. If I need some extra fabric looks like the fat quarter shop is a good resource.

Valerie said...

Oh how fun! I have some fun fabric too. The Dick and Jane fabric. I am actually trying to collect it so I can make something one day when I learn more. I love your goodies and can't wait to see more.

Stephanie said...

I love the lacey bouquets too. Darling is the perfect word for this line!

Wow, gorgeous fabrics.

Sherri said...

Such fun fabrics. And thanks for the explanation...Mrs. Clause...that's how I get all my fabric!

Terry said...

Strawberries, cherries and dots, oh my! I love them. :)

Nedra said...

Mrs. Santa has been very good to you!

Jen in NY said...

Ooh, love those fabrics!! All of them. I believe Lecien is pronounced "loo-SHEN," from what I've heard in blogland. I always thought it was "Luh-see-EN."

belinda said...

Good fabrics!!! A girl MUST start
out the new year with something
new for her stash!!!
I always LOVE what 'MRS.' Santa
brings me!!

Rae Ann said...

I need to make sure I sign up to be on your Santa's list or just find out where your Santa shops! That is the cutest fabric. Just looking at it makes me feel so happy!

PamKittyMorning said...

I'm still hoarding my Lecien 30's. I love them so much.

Annette said...

Such darling fabrics! I am looking forward to seeing what you create from them.

Vicki said...

So pretty! I love the strawberry fabrics... and the deer are really cute.

badlandsquilts said...

I think I heard PKM pronounce Lecien in one of here video posts sometime? I had been saying it wrong!

Pat said...

Just curious......what amount do you usually buy of the great prints you have in your stash? I know you mentioned just getting one-yard cuts of some of them above....so I guess you usually buy bigger pieces most of the time??

Camille said...

Love all the goodies- those strawberries are to die for! Yum. I second what Jen said- Loo-shen. Definitely a tricky name!

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

You have such an eye for fabric, funny but Mrs.Santa stopped at my house and gave me just what I wanted too!

Eileen said...

I am just now today opening Christmas presents. Yikes! So I'll try and catch up with you a little bit in email....
LOVE your fabrics.. as usual. But Allison is the best thing :-)

Wow...I love the fabric and how that Mrs. Clause gets around. I totally am in love with the patchwork and went right over to FQS and ordered some! It is so sweet! Thanks for sharing!

Ummmm, yeah, I'd say Mrs. Santa was very good indeed to you! Beautiful fabrics. Can't wait to see what they morph into.

Eeeek! How cute are those little Bambis? I also love those little prints in the last two pictures -- you have a great eye Nanette!

Hi Nanette...I totally agree with Mrs.Santa's choice of gifts!
How did she know? lol
Every piece is perfect and I know with you're talent...everything you make from it will be adorable!
Happy everything,

Jackie said...

OMG, you just have to love Mrs. Santa! She knows what a girl likes, doesn't she?

dokiquilts said...

Pat said...

I enjoy your blog, and like the fabric pieces you got. It will be nice now to see what you do with them. Good luck.

Kaaren said...

I'd love to come shopping in your stash, Nanette. No matter what you decide to make from all that gorgeous fabric, it'll look fresh, fun and happy!

Chelsea said...

Hi, I saw your Mixed Bag Pattern and think it is so cute and I have the perfect fabric for it, but your etsy shop says it is all sold out. How can I get the pattern? Please help-Chelsea

Cathy said...

Mrs Santa has fabulous taste doesn't she? I love Lecien, these are beautiful have fun with them (I know you will!!) xo

Meredith said...

Ah santa did a great job, funny he made it to my house with fabric also! I was not as brave to share it. Thanks again for the fabric you sent me. I made a little quilt with it. I posted about it since the top is done. Hope to get the rest of it done this week.

Farmhouse Blessings said...

Visiting with you always leaves me breathless!

By chance, is "lacy bouquet" the name of the brown/pink fabric collection? I simply must have it!

Smiles, Lea

Cathi said...

Those are fabulous fabrics! Love the daisy chain ones and the stamp one -- how intriguing!!

Jennifer said...

I LOVE that line, too! And the previous comments are correct: Loo-Shen (I asked Nireko awhile ago, and that's what she told me!).

Christine said...

Good old Mrs Santa. You got a lovely selection of fabrics .... look forward to seeing them in some projects this year.

prashant said...

I love the lacey bouquets too. Darling is the perfect word for this line!

Susan said...

Very good, Nanette, you always ask the same question that has been haunting me only I never ask because who in blogland would hear me pronounce incorrectly anyways. But I am happy to know I am in the right company.
