Fabric Friday Fun Novelties and Accents

21 comments
 It is no secret that I love novelty and kitchen fabrics.  They remind me of sitting in the large, high ceiling, eat-in kitchen of my childhood, and also remind me of the kitchens of childhood friends.  I can see wallpaper, curtains, table cloths and aprons all dancing around in my memory. That memory is so comforting and happy that it is no wonder I love these fabrics.
 I find the shape of cups and saucers so pleasing and classic.  This Windham fabric is very sweet.  I want to use it.
 Apples!  I love apples, especially this time of the year.  This apple fabric is some of the best apple fabric I've seen in a long time.  I want to take it and cut into it and use it immediately!  It is like a heart with a little cleft chin and add leaves/stem.  Cute!
 What would novelty fabric be without accent fabric to add interest?  A quilt can't be 100% novelty.  I think. This scallop would go well with novelty fabric and be great for binding too.
 I love black and white.  I love houndstooth.  I wish I could find medium-sized quilt-weight houndstooth.  Superbuzzy had some for a while and I got fat quarters of the colors but the black and white classic was my favorite.  They don't have it anymore and I searched but couldn't find it.  This nice Moda gingham is a close 2nd.  Checks look great in almost any quilt.
 This Windam fabric (which reminds me of a Blank quilting fabric line from last year) is in my favorite shade of green with black and white.  So so incredibly sweet and very 40s.
This black would be a perfect border print.  Kitchen drama.  A bit on the more elegant side.  I like my kitchen fabrics more farm house kitchen but this hits my fabric spot anyway. 

Hmm....my heart is still lingering back on those apples.....I've got to figure out a way to sew more.

Earlier this summer, I bought some yellow houndstooth and there's a black on in the same collection by Paula Prass - though perhaps a larger scale than you wanted?

Where in the world (or on line) do you find the great fabrics in your stash?!? I look for vintage-y, kitchen-y fabrics and NEVER see them in any shops! I'm probably just blind! You hsve got some of the most fun fabrics I've ever seen!
