A Well Worn Path

The postman is familiar with the path that leads to my front door.  He knows also that door knocking is unnecessary as the dog will bark outrageously at the sound of a parcel landing on the veranda.  Fabric has arrived!
 Little Folks by Anna Maria Horner

Having used most of my Little Folks stash I was keen to replenish supplies before these fabrics become "hard to get" or heaven forbid "rare".  Yikes, my heart skipped a beat just writing those words!


Whilst in shopping mode I also stocked up on the Pastry Line Solids - Dobby Dots also by Anna Maria Horner.  Isn't amazing  how much fabric can fit into one of those USPS Priority Envelopes (especially voile), and how fast they cross the Pacific Ocean!

Pastry Line Solids by Anna Maria Horner purchased from FabricpaloozaLittle Folks Collection also available.

  2. I am speechless! Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! And, I saw the mailman drop a parcel into my mailbox just now and I know what's in it! How about some Heather Bailey Pop Garden??? Have a great day and happy sewing!

  4. When I find a fabric i love I am finally learning to buy lots! Then I can enjoy it so many projects instead of hoarding it!

  5. I've got 20 of the 28 prints of the little folks line, but none of the dobby dots. I've thought about buyign some dobby dots to make dresses with for my daughters and maybe a little something for myself, since I already made myself a dress (on my blog)

    The little folks are going to be for a quilt I hope to start soon; I just need a solid for the background! I've spent around US$90, and I'll probably end up spending much more by the time it's all said and done. eep! But SO worth it!

  6. After grabbing an hour's sewing time today using these scrumptious fabrics, I think I too will be spending a few more $ on restocking!!! Great purchases Rita - I'm sure they will be put to wonderful use!!

  7. Beautiful! I love the little nubs on the one set of fabric. These coordinate so nicely together!

  8. I re-stashed these prints as well...only I'm scared to cut into this second batch. Maybe I should go back for a third just to be safe?!? They are HEAVEN to work with though!

  11. I am also beginning to think I should restock in a big way - these fabrics make such amazingly soft quilts!

  13. What a heavenly place your fabric stash must be! I could lose myself in it for days I'm sure! Totally drool-worthy.

  14. Love those fabrics, but.... my question is How do you do your 1/2 square triangles and how do you keep them square. I'm struggling with this. Help Please. Peggy

  15. Knowing that fabric goes out of print has caused me to hoard it. Lots of it. :) Happy sewing!

  16. Oh, I love this! A great interpretation of a classic quilt. I am pondering one in blue, hmmm!

  17. I am waiting on my Little Folks to arrive in the mail...it is all YOUR FAULT!! I couldn't resist after seeing the beautiful things you have made with this line of fabric. Lisa from Texas

  18. Oh! I've been admiring your quilts on Flickr for a while and have just taken the time to read through your blog especially since you've mentioned Kona solids which I'm about to order. When I read this post and you mentioned the Pacific I thought you might be a fellow Aussie, but I see you're a fellow Melbournian too! I order most of my fabric from Hawthorne Threads - they're so quick with delivery! I love the pastry solids.. might got order some now!
    Your quilts are so inspirational.
