The Lollipop Girl
lollipops, lollipops, lollipops
If last week you would have said to me, do you know what a Kaffe Fassett fabric was, I would not have been able to answer that question. Brenda sent me the lollipop pattern, I was just amazed, and I was hooked immediately.
I ordered some silk thread right away, spend a lot of time online looking at fabrics. After talking to Gay I was really surprised to find that one of our area quilt shops carried his fabric. I had never noticed it before, if you look at my fabric closet you will see almost nothing else except reproduction fabric. My closet is about 99% reproduction fabric, most of it just civil war fabrics. Civil war fabrics and 1930s fabrics is really all I have ever used except for some novelty fabrics for quilts for my grandchildren.
When I look at the fabric, I thought this is so out of the box for me, so far out. I guess it is not even close to the box, but the fabric is absolutely so beautiful and happy.
For those of you that have not ordered any fabric, I spent hours looking at the website at Glorious Color. I can't believe what a beautiful selection they have. It wasn't until I actually went to the fabric store and looked at some fabric that I could actually come home and place my order. Of course I've probably ordered enough fabric to do two or three quilts, but I'm sure that it will get used. I am waiting for my fabric to arrive , I will post pictures when it comes.
I could not leave the store without purchasing some fabric, this is a three-quarter Yard piece of fabric, I am amazed at how many different pieces of fabric you can cut out of one piece. Every fabric is so different, some of them have a much larger repeat than others.
I am looking forward to sharing your journeys and mine with you. I have really loved all of your photographs and your writings, I went back and read every single one of them. It is so inspiring to see everyone's work. Everyone has their own unique style and choice in picking fabrics and yet everyone is so beautiful.
Waiting for my mailman to bring my package of Kaffe Fassett Fabrics.
