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.
