Textile Tuesday #1

During a trip to my local quilt shop I was apparently channeling Robert Kaufman and Ann Kelle b/c fabric from their remix line made up a big part of my grab bag.
 I stuck with fat quarters.  Smaller pieces made room for more variety when budgeting.

Blue and lime green? Whales?  Yes please.  The whales are also from Ann Kelle.
 I'm not sure that I would ever have put red, light blue and gray together, but now that I've seen them together, I love it.  It reminds me of old fashion Norman Rockwell baseball prints.  I can see it in an old fashion baseball themed nursery.  
 These over sized polka dots are from the Half Moon line by Momo.  It seems I was also on a lime green kick while shopping as well.  
And last but not least, these fun prints made it into the stash as well.   Growing up my great grandmother used to collect owls.  She kept them all in one china hutch.  Honestly, it was creepy.  Especially at night in the dark.  Like they were all staring at you, following you as you walked by.....anyway, back to the topic at hand.   I've noticed over the past year or two that owls have made a comeback and popularity and I've grown to like them.  I love the cute little faces they make here on this fabric.    And the elephants.  Trunks up for good luck!

Now, what to do with it all??  I need inspiration.

Linking up HERE!


  1. I want your new stash finds!!! I looove Ann Kelle prints, so cute! I really love the blue/gray/red colorway too, it would be a great line for a boy nursery. And love the Michael Miller prints, you did good! Can't wait to see what you come up with!

  2. I vote that you make a crazy quilt! I've been on a crazy quilt kick recently. It started out as a way to use some of the oddly shaped scraps that I have, but I've decided I just really like the look. The best part - it's super easy, and nothing has to match!
