Fabric Friday Lecien 30s

21 comments
I think most of you can relate to my feelings of fabric making me "happy". My love for fabric dates back to my childhood home where my mother, Freda, had fabric lined up on shelves and her sewing room was where we always found her. The older I get the more nostalgic I get about growing up in a working class city and in a home where I was happy.
I want to show you some cuts from Lecien's 30's collection. I have had (and used) some of these fabrics before and some of them are new to me. I love love this line of fabric. (I know, I've used up my allotment of the word love, now) Isn't this heart fabric super sweet?
I was told years ago by someone that pink and red do not go together. Hmmph! What do they know? I love pink and red together.
The dot with strawberries and cherries is a great fabric. And the little rosebud heart is just perfect.
These two fabrics have a feedsack quality to them. I like the explosion of flowers in them.
Oh gray, I'm so adoring you right now. These two are both gray backgrounds. The lighter one is just a hint of gray and the darker tulip is really wonderful.
I really enjoy a baby deer on fabric. And these with the parade of daisies are just lovely.
It is a great pile of 1/2 yard cuts. I am going to keep them out where I can be inspired by them.

"someone" doesn't know what they're talking about!
pink and red are the two very best colors.
and those fabrics are all lovely.

Fabric brings back memories for me also. I remember going into a fabric shop when I was a little girl with my Aunt. I was smitten. I picked out some pretty purple and pink flowered fabric and she took me home and made me 2 dresses. A few years ago before she passed away, she sent me a bag of scraps and in it were scraps from those 2 dresses!
Yours are all beautiful. They deserve to be admired!

I would l.o.v.e to see your stash in person, Nanette! I would hug it and squeeze it and call it 'lovely'!

Barbara said...

Love anything from the 30s, or that looks like it's from the 30s - these are lovely!

Cynthia said...

The fabrics are beautiful! I have such a terrible time cutting into fabrics that I love! Are you that way?

I don't blame you a bit. They are gorgeous - all of them, and they'll be handy for fabric-petting. I got some fabric in the mail the other day and Mr. Muddling asked me if I wasn't going to pet it. So I did. LOL

Pink and red don't go together? News to me. I love them together.

And those tulip bouquet prints have me drooling. So pretty.

Oh, gee whiz, I wish we carried Lecien at the shop! It's all so gorgeous! You do have a very lovely collection, Nanette. :) I bet your granddaughters will be just as in love with your fabric as you were with your mom's.

So beautiful - I am about to start a little quilt with reds - wish I could pop through the screen and steal some, lol!
Hugs - Lurline

I just love all of these fabrics. I too think red and pink go together. I know what you mean about making fabric making you happy. I am laughed at by friends who don`t sew when I tell them I just sometimes stroke my fabrics! Joan

Beautiful fabrics, Nanette, as always, thanks for sharing some of your inspiration!
