A couple weeks ago we went to Leavenworth for the day!! I hadn't been there in years and it was sure fun to bring the kiddos there. When I was there I stopped in at the local quilt shop and saw the most beautiful quilt made out of some 30's reproduction fabrics!! The shop owner told me the fabric were all from a collection called More Fat 8ths and Friends from 2006.
Of course when I got home I had to do a little search!! Lucky for me I found some, and was even able to get a little yardage from the designer, Marsha McCloskey. I think the way they have the fabric printed is so clever. There are 4 fat 8ths printed on a half yard!! I just love it!! I just listed this little fat 8ths set in my shop today!! :)
This morning I whipped up a farmers wife block with some of the fat 8ths!! It was fun to finally be able to cut into it.
Since I'm talking about pretty 30's reproduction fabrics I thought I'd show you some of the Toybox II by Sara Morgan. I fell in love with the red and aqua one first after I'd seen it on Flickr and then had to find out where to buy this lovely collection on the bolt! This is now in my shop too! :)
You'll probably see some of my next few farmers wife blocks with some of these!! I got a little behind with my Mom in town so I'll be trying to catch up this week, along with finally getting my pinwheels in the park quilt top sewn together.
