Fabulous Fabric Friday From Flora

27 comments
I didn't go to Quilt Market this year but I hope to go next year. It was great to be represented with making a quilt and other fun kitchen items to be shown at market. I've been reading the blog posts and was following Twitter blerbs about all that happened in Minneapolis. I have to admit I'm always a little jealous of those that go to market. They have so much fun. Sigh. And now Market is over and the cycle to anticipate the next Market begins.
So I was really surprised when my great friend Flora brought me a piece of love from Quilt Market last weekend. Shocked really! And it is Lecien fabric!!! My favorite stuff. The girls from Broadbent's Quilt Store had a great time at Market and brought some goodies back to Utah with them. And Flora shared with me. I'm so lucky. Thank you thank you. Having this fun fabric bundle sure heals that little bit of jealousy.
The fabric is so incredibly darling. It is Lecien's Caramel Town line. It is just super cute.
Aren't the characters absolutely delightful? I can't wait to make something with this. Something for Allison for sure.
This panel comes in several color ways. That little gingham bear and the matryoshka toys are so so cute.
I want to design a baby quilt around this line. Thinking, thinking thinking.
The letters and circles are a very sweet compliment to the fabric. Darling stuff, all of it. I almost hate to cut into it. This is going to stay on my table for a bit so i can start imagining what I want to make.

Very cute fabric! Myself, I am eager to get to the International Quilt Festival next month. I have been saving my pennies and want to get ahold of some Lecien too, but of Monica's (Happy Zombie) new Christmas line with the Santa Gnomes. I sincerely thank the organizers of this Festival for coming to CA!! Have a good time playing with that yummy fabric, Nanette.
