Yummy Fabric Mix

Fabric Mix

At the end of last year, I purchased a bundle of Mimosa by Windham fabrics.  I first saw peeks of it before Spring Quilt Market last year and knew it was a line that I wanted to have.  I was disappointed that it wasn’t shown at spring market as it was one of the lines I was really looking forward to seeing in person.

Fast forward to this past fall when Mimosa came out.  I knew I needed some of it because I planned to pair it with Flea Market Fancy and Katie Jump Rope.  In my mind, I knew they would be beautiful all mixed up.

However, it wasn’t until yesterday, that I actually opened up my Mimosa fabrics and pulled my Flea Market Fancy & Katie Jump Rope from my stash to see just exactly how well they played together.

Over on Instagram Soak Wash has a great Photo of the Day thing going on where you post a picture based on their word of the day.  Yesterday’s word was “throwback”, so I figured between the reproduction feedsack prints & that FMF & KJR were printed from 2005-2007 that they fit the bill for my “throwback” photo.  Does 10 year old fabric count as a throwback? =p

And, oh my!.. they are beautiful together in all their feedsacky goodness.

I have no idea what quilt pattern I will be using for these fabrics, nor when I will have time to make said quilt.  But I am excited about it nonetheless!

  • You know I love my Mimosa! I bought a pack of coordinating solids from Westwood Acres fabrics and can’t wait to add those in! I have so many luscious projects in progress that I think I need to quit my job and just stay home and sew, sew, sew! Have fun! Can’t wait to see what you do with them!

  • Love the combination! I know you will not be surprised that I have some Mimosa in my stash too. And the Katie Jump Rope bright blue fabric shown in your third photo (between the yellow and the green toward the top) is what I was lucky enough to find in the Fabric Shack fat quarter bins last fall. 🙂

  • Ooh, love those! And they do look great together.

  • I thought the same thing when I saw the Mimosa line at my LQS!. I have some FMF and KJR saved for something special too— can’t wait to see what you do with it!
