Lots of New Fabric in the House!

Flea Market Fancy

This has been a good week for fabric delivery (unless you are my mailman)! I’m sure you’ve seen Flea Market Fancy popping up all over blogland. The reprint shipped this week. I didn’t order all the prints, but there were several that I loved. Obviously it would have been nice to see some additional prints…blue seeds and green bouquet. But I’m very grateful to even have these prints. I know a lot of the preorders for this line sold out fast, but you can still find prints at Lark Cottons, Fresh Squeezed Fabrics and hopefully your local quilt shop!


I have been really loving using crosshatch prints lately, so I splurged on a bundle of Sketch by Timeless Treasures from Pink Castle Fabrics.


Brenda is sold out of bundles at the moment (out of 1 color) but she will be adding them again soon. You can also pick by the color.


Another option if you like this look are these linen texture prints at Fresh Modern Fabric.

Happy Kids

Finally I picked up this adorable Happy Kids fat quarter. I don’t have an immediate plan for this print, but it was just too cute to pass up.

I’m finishing up the binding on another quilt today and hopefully will have something to share this weekend or Monday. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

    I’m in love with the crosshatch fabrics too… did you know Robert Kaufman has (or had) one? I found it at my LQS in the most delicious shade of turquoise.

    I just love the Happy Kids fat quarter. I think it would be the perfect centerpiece for the blocks in a quilt like your Munki in the Middle! I have been looking for something adorable like this…perhaps I’ll have to make it my own??!!

    Happy kids reminds me of the armless people my DD used to draw.

    OH! I love it all! I am in love with those cross hatch, linen look fabrics too! I have a few little bits of Heath by Alexander Henry that I adore!

    Can you believe my LQS didn’t order Flea Market Fancy? And when I asked about it, they were like, “What? What fabric house is that from?”

    I couldn’t believe it. And they bill themselves as a modern quilting shop!

    For fear of being hunted down, I’m not actually that fond of FMF. That sketch bundle, on the other hand, I could happily come over and kidnap, along with the kids 😀

    I had some FMF arrive this week too 🙂 Yum!

    I also had no idea that the crosshatch prints came in such an array of colors! I have a few and may need to add more now! Thanks for sharing!

    What yummy fabric! Hope you have a great time playing with it and that Happy Kids FQ is just too darn cute! It’s cooled down this evening down here in central state IL….what weird weather we have had in IL this winter/spring?!

    What a gorgeous selection of fabrics. I love fresh bright colours, but the childrens’ fabric you have is delightful too! Happy stitching!
