Stitch Thank you! They aren't really in my colour palette but I couldn't resist. And the panel was perfect!
This is the Mary Frances & Thimble Friends fabric collection by Amy Barackman- love it. A few online stores have a limited amount of some of the patterns. I have the Mary Frances books - collected them for my first daughter-and have always loved the illustrations- your quilt will be a delight.
Oh I love this quilt and fabric is just wonderful...cannot wait to see it done!
Mymble Thank you for this information! I am not familiar with the books, but the illustrations really evoked alot of warm and fuzzy memories and emotions for me. I'll have to see if I can find these books at my local library.
Stitchcat Several online book retailers including Amazon carry the reprints, and the originals come up frequently on ebay- I have the set of reprints and even then they were costly- but worth it;) Check out Amy Barackman's company http://www.indygojunction.com/ and the subdivision The Vintage Workshop- has lots of images etc...and Amy's website http://amybarickman.com/the-vintage-notions-book/ which has info about her book Vintage Notions which is a reprint compilation of the work of Mary Brooks Pickens- all lovely vintage goodies:) Happy Sewing!
Love the story behind this one!! I am still so impressed by those quilters who make these hexagon quilts - amazing and beautiful!
Wow! I love the graphics! Thank you for all the information on this. What a wonderful quilt!
The fabrics are lovely. What a wonderful story behind your quilt.
I sooooo love this fabric. I love the way you have fussy cut the printed one. Tried to see if I could find some and saw it in red. Oh yummy. But unfortunately doesn't look like it's available.
Capetowngirl I was very lucky! I found it as a Fat Quarter bundle in the 50% off section of my LQS. I was lucky it came with a panel...
Ooooo...love these fussy cuts. Have you finished this one yet? Such calm gentle colors too. Very nice!
Yeah, same here. Looking forward to watching it come together....
