Fabric Friday - 'lil of this and a 'lil of that

28 comments
I'm so crazy busy right now but not too busy to celebrate fabric for a few moments. So here we go.I am really not sure what I will do with this fabulous Kokka print. Anyone that loves to sew will understand why I wanted it.
This print with Robert Kaufman pears mixes vintage and mod. I love the '70s feel with a twist.
These 2 pin dots I picked right off my cutting table. The colors did not show well in the lighting of my sewing room so I had my son run them outside and get a better picture. The top one (Lecien) is less lavender and more pretty in pink. The bottom pin dot is a Lake House perfect cherry pink red. I love a pin dot. Don't you?

I would use that top fabric as a sewing machine cover or to cover a big corkboard in my sewing room(if I had a sewing room!)

Nedra said...

You always come up with the most fun fabrics! I agree with Nancy, it looks like a piece that needs to stay in tact.

Darlene said...

Fun, fun, fun! Pin dots are true favs - they remind me so much of dotted swiss from the 70's. :-)

Sandi said...

Yep, I'm just "dotty" for dots. :-) Nice green grass you've got there! Ours looks a little yellow as it's been dry but last night we got torrential rains so it should green up again real soon. Have a great weekend!

Love, love, love the pear fabric!

Kala said...

Loving the Pears! They scream PiCnIC!

Brandie said...

As usual, more great fabrics. You always find the most interesting fabrics. Most of these, I've never even seen before. Loving the pears!

Miss White Wall said...

Oh I really really love the Pear Fabric! I can't wait to see what you create with it. Sometimes I get anxiety about cutting into really pretty fabrics and that one is just soo gorgeous!

I'd have a hard time cutting the sewing-themed one, too. You could always make it the centerpiece of a quilt.

Lynn said...

Love the fruit fabric, funny how after a cooling off period of 4 decades I actually like fabrics that are 70's like. Love the top one too. So many fun possibilities

I love a polka dot ....big or little. Have a great weekend Nanette.

Kim D. said...

That Kokka fabric is adorable, my first thought was use it as a sewing machine cover, but a bag would be adorable too. Polka dots are my favorite.

Thimbleanna said...

I sure look forward to seeing your fabrics each friday. These are all so fun. My favorite is the sewing print. Of course :-)

Nanci said...

Ikea has fabulous patterns too. I love the Kokka stuff, it reminds me also of Merimiko cottons from the 70s.

Thanks for giving me a taste of what's going on up there. I don't get to SLC as much as I need to and when I do it's run run run. You always inspire me. Claudia

The star wedding quilt is just amazing! I love the colors! All the quilts are beautiful, but that one really stands out!
