Show and Tell: Flea Market Fancy
I think I have an unreasonable lust for some fabrics. For example, the prints from Denyse Schmidt's Flea Market Fancy collection. I don't even know the name of this exact print I own. I just know I love it love it love it. And that it is now out of print.
I love the choices of colors, the happy combination it creates, the clean lines of the pattern, the modern yet vintage-y feel of the whole thing. Yum!
I bought this fabric in Nashville, 2 or 3 years ago, for a baby quilt project which I ended up never making. I got 1/2 yard in blue, and 1/4 yard in green. Since then, I have held on to these pieces like they are gold. (And considering the mad love for this collection, everywhere you look online, I may not be that crazy.) I have dished out little pieces here and there: I cut one for a fabric ball for Silas, I used a few scraps for a couple of sentimental quilt squares, and a few other "important enough" projects.
Angel, the fact that you received a fat quarter of this print (in blue) lovingly cut from my stash for Christmas should tell you very clearly how much you mean to me!
