Flea Market Fancy – A Decision Has Been Made!

After looking at many different squares, blocks, triangles, hexagons (half or otherwise) snowballs and the like, I started cutting into the blue flea market fancy.

Much has been written and blogged over this colorway of this particular line of fabric by me and many others.  I’ve traded and swapped for it and even called little shops all over the country in search of it.  Basically, it’s called hoarding.  This past week, I swapped for another half yard, plus a fat quarter of the creme de la creme blue bouquet and I said to myself that the time had come.  I want to enjoy the prints, not have them on my fabric shelf, as pretty as they are sitting there.  So, without any further ado…here it is. 

IMG_FMFquilt10001The blocks are 6″ and there are only four fabrics that I’ve settled on.  The other three are kona cotton in bleached white, the pinky-red coordinating barbells, and Amy Butler’s full moon dots. 

It’s all about the fabric….

    That’s going to be beautiful! It must feel liberating to go ahead and start cutting your fabric!

    I like it! Clean and simple, so you can enjoy the beauty of the fabrics. I’m hoarding a few fabrics right now, but it’s always so satisfying to cut into them for just the right project!

    Gorgeous! It’d difficult for me to cut into and use fabrics I love and have in my stash… but once I do, I’m so glad I did.

    De-lurking just to say – that quilt is going to be GORGEOUS.

    I think you’ll love it even more now that it’s in a project!
