Ready for a little Christmas in July? How about this beautiful collection from Moda designed by French General? New for this holiday season, Esprit de Noel; reminiscent of a French Christmas (though these are gorgeous enough to stand alone in any season). I’ve offered up a tiny bit in my Etsy shop; chunks of charming fat eighths. Plenty enough for small projects to begin the holiday season.
Right now for a limited time, these sweet fabrics are shipping FREE!
Back in stock:
- more lovely mini honey bun quilt kits, also from Moda.
- just one left of this fat eighth set – also shipping FREE
- destash of this super cute Windham Fabric American Retro Cherry print.

This week for my Friday Featured Fabric, I wanted to highlight several vintage and out of print pre-cut packs I’ve listed in my Etsy shop the last couple of weeks. Some really unique and unusual fabrics are available from fat eighths to over-sized fat quarters; the best part is they are all shipping FREE in the continental US! Take advantage of this as I’m not sure when I will pull this offer…or pull the fabrics should I decide the perfect project for any one of them (you’ve been warned!)
A particular favorite…3 variations in scale of purple roses!
a fat eighth pack with a nice selection of out of print high end quilt cottons and vintage
a fun and funky floral fat pack
an out of print rarity – quilt weight cotton Asian inspired Brunschwig & Fils over-sized fat quarter

Wait…how is it already Friday?! I had a ton of posts to write this week…most I think were based on how hot it is here. It was 97 degrees midday yesterday (and 95 at 4pm!) Anyway, here we are – and its time for another cool selection for the Friday Featured Fabric!
This week was a RUFF choice! Seriously, is this not darling! A new acquisition – upholstery weight Scottie Dog fabric! Sold by the yard, a perfect choice for pet bedding, carriers or totes! Grab it here.

I’m on the road today (looking for more fabrics to add to the shop!), but I wanted to stop in and post for the Friday Featured Fabric!
Look how sweet this vintage print is! I’m a sucker for small print florals and this one has a neat alternating geo dot pattern too. I’m offering it by the yard (unfortunately there is only one available!) and in a trio pack of fat eighths (free shipping is still available on this item).

Memorial Day Weekend is upon us! Here’s a patriotic vintage-y flag fabric (it is an out of print fabric from Fabric Traditions dated 1990; technically vintage but still pretty new in my book). I love it and saved a bit in my own stash; so only 1 yard is available! I might offer some smaller remnants after I finish my own project (but first – I will need to start my project). Fourth of July is nearly here, so don’t wait! Grab it here.

Another oldie but goodie! I listed this last week on Etsy and have it in store at the shop’s sewing center – it’s getting quite a bit of attention so I figured I better highlight this fabric before it’s gone. A thick cotton fabric panel (similar to tablecloths of the 1950’s and 60’s), it features a beautiful tropical print of orchids and palm leaves with a coloring that feels very now to me. I have two panels listed, measuring 26″ x 62″; I’m very tempted to keep one for myself (but then I walk into my workroom, see my overflowing stash and think better of it!) It looks like a perfect beach side resort fabric for pillows or bed linens; maybe a beach tote as well? Remember, just two panels so grab it before it’s gone!

I am reaching once again into the time vault (or my vintage stash) to share another beauty with you this Friday! A medium weight cotton floral that I estimate from the 1960’s – 1970’s. It actually reminds me a lot of the period that this season of Mad Men is in – 1969, I think. (wouldn’t it be just perfect for Betty’s dark and gothic abode???)
The print is really lovely with lots of detail; the colors are dark and rich. I currently have 4 yards (and then some that I’ve keeping for personal use) – and at a medium weight there is plenty to upholster a small chair or a create a set of totes, but certainly light enough still for a smashing dress or skirt. Grab it here!
