Fabric Friday Random Random

18 comments
Fabric Friday today shows several fabrics that have nothing to do with each other, hence Random FF.
These fat quarters have random words and logos on them. I do like fabric with words, letters and numbers. I don't know that I have met many novelty fabrics I didn't like.
What isn't to like about hedge hogs and daisies? I don't know what I'll use this for but I only have a fat quarter. I'll think of something sometime.
Now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure I've shown this fat quarter before on a Friday, but in a different color. I'm auditioning center fussy cut squares so I pulled this one down to muse over.
Another novelty fabric I found, but not in a fat quarter shape. This Heather Ross in chairs used to be flannel pajama bottoms. Now it is an inspiration piece for me. I will cut off the waist band before using, however.
This is a cut from a piece Shelbie bought a while ago. It is some crazy Japanese fairy tale fabric. Shelbie sent me the story that goes along with it but it was so far out I didn't think it would be a bedtime story for Allison. So, I thought it would be fine to cut this up for fussy cut squares, too. Not sure I will ever use the crabs, however. But the bee, tree and house are perfect.
I showed this kitty fabric as a back drop for something else a bit ago. But it is so cute it deserves it's own place in FF. It is kind of a thinner bark cloth type. What will I ever do with it? I don't know.
This last fat quarter is Red Riding Hood. Those of you that read my blog know I'm working on a RRH quilt. I haven't put it away. It is on my "works in progress" table. I am so close to finishing it. I promised myself I would have the quilt ready, quilted and bound for Alpine Days Quilt Show in early August. So I need to remember my promise and try to keep it. This fabric will help me remember. It isn't in the RRH quilt, however. But it is really sweet.

Lots to do this weekend. I hope I get at least a good portion done. Next week's posts Alpine Quilt Group, Jelly Roll Quilt-a-Long progress, and Stash Manicure Guest Blogging. Whew. Have a nice weekend everyone.

My favorite is the 3rd one....the green with the kitties drinking milk. Very sweet. Little Red Riding Hood in pink is pretty cute, too. I am always amazed at the different prints that you all find! Have a good weekend!

They are all fabulous - can't wait to see how you use them. You have a knack for finding the cutest fabrics, Nanette.

Brandie said...

You always have the most interesting fabrics to show us. Most of them I've never seen. Some I wish I had, they would be perfect for this or that. Thanks for sharing, now I have to see if I can find some of them.

That Japanese fairytale fabric is too funny. What's with the killer mushroom dudes? LOL

Love that Heather Ross fabric. That's the only way you can get lots of those prints, right? I look for them whenever I'm in Marshall's/TJ Maxx, to no avail.

The red riding hood fabric is so cute! I really like the fabric with words, too.

Nanette ~ Can I come and sit in your quilt room and just pet all those cute fabrics? I love you FF because it always inspires me so!

I have the monkey one in blue - it is hilarious. Is the monkey on fire in one bit on yours? Very odd!!!!

I could spend hours going through your fabric! And hours looking at your Going to Market quilt! It is so fabulous. I love the stripy basket handles! x

Pat said...

And I see squirrels, bunnies, and ducks in the same fabric with the hedgehog and daisies...how CUTE!!! I do recall your Red Riding Hood quilt and can't wait to see it finished! Funny thing about the crabs in the Japanese fabric....in our area (the beach area), fabric with crabs is very popular!!!

I love the little hedgehogs and I love the little crabs too. Such fun fabrics and very inspiring.

Janet said...

I don't often see fabrics like these in the shops but they sure do make your quilts shine. I love them all but I adore the fabrics with words and letters.
