FMF


It's one of my favorite fabric lines...if you don't know it, it's Flea Market Fancy by Denyse Schmidt. My stash is slowly dwindling, but I'd rather use it than hoard it.

This is a set of fat eighths of the entire line. I couldn't put this set together on my own. I needed a little help from my friends...Heather of A la mode Fabric and Ashley of Film in the Fridge each donated 3 pieces that I was missing. Thanks girls!

So, why am I posting this 45 piece set of lusciousness? To tease you, of course.

I will say it can be yours, but you'll have to wait until next week.

Patience is a virtue.

oh, you tease!
I love it too, and it's definitely a great line to use rather than hoard away - so cheerful.

Working madly on my FMF blue/green dresden to get to the finish line. Then started a new little project with some leftovers. I was never able to get the big polka dot leaf in either blue or green. Drat. My gosh you'll probably get 1,000+ comments of those coveting this lovely bundle.

Amy said...

Oh, it looks so pretty in that picture, with the bow and all!

Little Miss Shabby said...

Not feeling overly virtuous LOL!! =) Can't wait to see what your plan is. =)

corinnea said...

Oh, yum!

Alice R. said...

Ooooooh, you are a meanie! They are lovely, and I look forward to the coming fun...

Suzanne said...

I have to admit that before I started reading yours and Ashley's blogs, I didn't know what FMF was. It became hard to find after I discovered it. What I like best about your post is that you would rather use it than hoard it. I'm getting to that place with pieces of my stash as well. Way to go!

NorahS said...

Wow! I am breathless with anticipation! Can't wait to see what you have cooked up.

Melinda said...

Oh my! Are you going to give that luscious pack away? I will be reading everyday to find out what you are planning.

Looks luscious tied with that green ribbon. I have bits and pieces in my collection but am missing so many. I keep bidding on ebay but the prices are outrageous! Thankfully, I have also gotten a few bits from my friends.

are you kidding!? will be watching.

Lynn said...

Just the sight of that fabric makes my heart rate increase (or is that all the excercise I've been doing to meet my CYB goal).

leigh said...

It's lovely just to look at. So lovely. I need to get cutting into my stash. I just don't want to screw it up.

Valerie said...

You are going to make somebody VERY happy methinks...

Alissa said...

Teehee. Keeping everyone waiting. I love it!

AllieKatMom said...

I would love to get some of this. It all came out before I started to quilt so there was little chance I would get my hands on it. I do love how it looks in quilts. So pretty!

Netta said...

SWEET!!!

megan said...

I was lucky enough to find a bunch of this line right before it all but disappeared. So I will contently watch the others arm wrestle each other for a chance!

grendelskin said...

I missed the boat completely on that line, so I just drool from afar. You tease! I never claimed to be virtuous!

Mrs. Darling said...

Oh! It is so so lovely!!! Oictures of FMF never get old!

Angie said...

Oh the agony of waiting! :)

Angelina S. said...

That picture has me drooling! Although katie jump rope is definitely a very close contender for my favorite line. That Denyse Schmidt!

Laura said...

Consider me teased. What a great set! Hope to hear more about this!

traceyjay said...

I get a little sad every time I see those sweet little seedlings, and realize that I didn't know about quilting until they were "hard to find"... if only Free Spirit would re-print them...

prairiewhisper said...

what a beautiful selection of fabrics.

Jolie said...

what a tease!

I always wished I'd fallen for FMF before it go so stinking hard to find...can't wait for next week!

Lindsay said...

AHHH I wish I had started quilting sooner. I have fallen in love with so many out of print fabrics that its not even funny.
