I wasn't planning on writing a blog post today. So this one is going to be a short and sweet, to the point.
I felt like playing in the fabric stash. You know straightening, sorting and finding hidden treasures. I bet most of you are surprised to see the purple print. It's not a color I use often. But this one I love.
Here's a shot of the selvage. Peter Pan Fabrics INC. is vintage fabric, or so the internet says. My online search didn't yield much information but honestly I didn't dig real deep into the search. I've had this fabric in my stash for years. It was part of a huge quilting estate sale I purchased for $200. For $200 I had one truckload of fabric and notions. Most I gave away due to there was a lot of novelty prints and things I would never use. The second truckload was a midarm quilter and frame. That too I no longer own. Most of the fabric I kept is now fabric I rarely even see. It's tucked away in my cabinet of misfits. Occasionally the thought crosses my mind to sell or donate them. It's not going to happen! This is my go to cabinet for making quilts for other people. Most people I know don't want a quilt made with bright happy fabrics. So it's nice to have the older fabric stash. The purple print is being upgraded today and will now be in my "I love it" fabric cabinet.
Hope you find time to stitch up something sweet!
I like that purple fabric too and I do think it looks like something you'd like. Those flowers are just your style! Happy stitching!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Hopefully someday I'll find a use for it. More than likely it will end up on one of the grandkids beds.Delete
I love it to. A very happy fabricReplyDelete
Thanks Babs! Hope all is well down south.Delete
I have that green fabric. That is Pam Kitty Morning. I think it is lively and fun when I use those fabrics.ReplyDelete
That green is the best green they made. I wish Pam would get back in the fabric designing world again. I pester her about it from time to time on Instagram and Facebook.Delete
I love that purple print, too, Lea Anne! Such a cheerful print with a vintage vibe. You know, it's funny how I think of those 20s and 30s prints being from "simpler times" -- totally forgetting that people were still reeling from the Great War in the 1920s and mourning those who died, and the stress and worry of the Great Depression. I guess my high school history teacher was right when he said that EVERY time in history was just as complicated as our own. Still, the happy flower prints cheer me up when I see them!ReplyDelete
I tell people my husband makes me see RED. But to me red is a happy color.ReplyDelete
