Fabric Friday Trim and Stuff

It is the end of June and another month has zipped by and I don't have a finished quilt.  I'm feeling like I really need to sew this weekend.  I though today for Fabric Friday I'd make a mix of different things in my sewing room.
One of these days I'm going to make a folky Pennsylvania Dutch quilt.  This fabric goes right to that stash pile.  It is vintage and European folky but also Pennsylvania Dutch, too.
This is a new fabric that reminds me of the previous blue fabric in the folky nature.  I love that the silver in it is metalic.  It is a Japanese print but also has that European/PA Dutch folky flavor.
This is some trim my daughter Natalie gave me.  I love the vintage/modern take on the trims.
These are vintage trims that I purchased on Etsy.  I may try to put the red on the right into a crown for my London 2012 quilt.  The red white and blue hearts are darling.  I might have to do something to use them in that quilt too.
I have had these zippers for a while.  They are for using in bag making but I'm kind of bag making lazy.  Aren't the ballerina pulls so cute.
I have this kind of ugly metallic gold fabric.  I'm going to try to make this into a gold metal for my London 2012 quilt. I'm going to work on it this weekend.  We'll see if it works out.  I am not going for an exact replica but more in the spirit of a gold metal.

I can never quite figure out those prints - sort of folk art, a little Holland, a little Sweden - I think European/Pennsylvania Dutch/folky is the only way to describe it!
