Fabric Friday - Domestic Fabric - and Happy Mother's Day Weekend

32 comments
First off - Thanks so much for the thoughtful comments on my Stash Manicure post from yesterday. I can't respond to many of them directly because I don't get those comments as emails to me but I have read them all and you girls are too nice. I really wish I could invite you all into my sewing room. I'd put you to work but we would have a nice time together. We have so much in common. Thank you.

Today for fabric Friday I thought I'd feature some some domestic fabric that I'm in love with as opposed to showing Japanese made fabric, vintage fabric, or just off beat fabric that I find and that most people can't get.
There is a new line of fabric called 1933 by Chloe's Closet for Moda. I recently acquired 3 of the prints in this line, my favorites of the line. This yellow is adorable and reminds me of the Japanese made reproduction fabrics.
This is my favorite in the 1933 line. This small red print is incredibly cute and even cuter in person.
This red with tiny tiny cherries is also very sweet and goes with so many of the fabrics I already have.
I really like fruit prints and strawberry prints are my favorite of the fruits. This Robert Kaufman fabric has been out for a while, but again reminds me of some of the harder to find Japanese prints. Look how cute that little flower/blossom is. This just reminds me of picking strawberries at a farm near Morgantown, PA with my mom each summer when I was a kid.
This is a strange sized precut from Windham. The cuts here are 5" instead of the traditional jelly roll 2 1/2" so really you can get 2 jelly rolls out of this if you cut it in half. I love the tiny prints in this line.
Here is the line as shown at Fat Quarter Shop. We are having a family girl retreat in September and we are going to make the quilt from the Jelly Roll Quilt-A-Long because it is a great quilt for any level from beginner to advanced. I'm going to half this roll with my sister, Polly, if she wants to use it. We both like tiny prints and this one is really sweet. I may change my mind, you know how that goes. But I do really think this would make a great jelly roll quilt.

Have a great Mother's Day weekend everyone. I hope weather is cooperative. Mothers teach us all we know.

Fun fabrics as always! There are just so many cool fabrics out there. The designs are endless!! Happy Mother's day to you, too. My mother taught me all the basics of sewing and I loved it then, love it now.I know that I am blessed that we can still enjoy sharing stitching projects together. The photo of your mom on your beehive quilt is a treasure. :-)

Hi Nan, I like your new header on the blog. I got my eat CAKE done last week and love it. It is being displayed on my kitchen island. Thanks again for your sweet gift. I just made rolls and some of the kids are coming tonight so I will get to use it. You are the best. Happy Mothers Day.

Thimbleanna said...

Great fabrics, as always Nanette! I tried to comment on Stash Manicure, but it's one of those troublesome blogs for me that won't take my comment. I loved reading your storage insight -- if only I could get you to come over and organize my mess for me!

Gene Black said...

Great fabrics. Just so you know, that strange 5" cut is the size of a Moda "dessert roll"
It is listed on the Moda Bake Shop under "Weights and measures."
