Okay. It's coming down to not being able to find anything even remotely like what I want in these fabrics arround here. Thrifting is just not working. I will be biting the bullet and ordering something soon...I can feel it coming on.
The image at the right is called "Buttercups Baby Pink".
This is really all my mom's fault you know. About 2-3 years ago she gave me a sack full of fabric she had saved from outfits she'd made for me and my sister when we were growing up in the 70's. I'm not sure if it's the nostalgia, the prints themselves or just a need to be different from everyone else's quilting style and preference here in the Midwest...but I'm hooked.
Wouldn't this make great binding!
I'm a little upset with myself because I can't remember where I found this. I have this thing for birds. And these two are the sweetest little things on wings right now!
Over at Sweet Jessie's blog found here:
You can find exactly the sort of feeling I get from vintage and retro prints. Two little girls. Soft colors. Safe place to be. Happy.
Love you Mom!
