Its a small world one of my best friends has made a bunch of quilts out of this line. It is her all time favorite.

I am in search of Heather Ross fabric with the little VW buses on it and in this same line is a fabric with little gnomes it is way too cute.

I don't have a favorite fabric line, but I do have a favorite designer - Kaffe Fassett. I look for his fabrics at every shop I visit - I have a lovely collection. I do have a couple of fat quarter bundles of complete lines and just can't seem to cut into them - I think of them as little works of art!

You had me laughing so hard I couldn't catch my breath with the 'pimple on prom night' comment, but I do know exactly what you meant. I have found many an elusive treasure on ebay, but I am learning to be very cautious if they don't specify the fabric brand name. I asked one seller what the brand was and the reply back was..."Does it matter?" LOL. Well, when I was a brand new quilter and didn't know anything about the finer fabrics, no it didn't, but it didn't take me long after joining a few BOM's and quilting classes to notice the HUGE difference it quality fabrics verses ... well, poorly make fabrics. Now when I go hunting for new treasures on ebay, I know exactly what is what. Now I have only been quilting for about 18 months but as I said, it doesn't take long. Now when I am home alone, and stealthily sneak (shhhh) downstairs to pull out my treasures, I know which ones I want to 'fondle'...yes, my name is Nancy and I am a Fabric Fondler! I am like you though. I get such a thrill out of laying it out on my table or floor all around me and just drooling over them, visualizing the beautiful pieces they will become...when I decide I can cut into them. I'm so glad you found the kit you have been looking for. Boy!!! what bounce that must have put in your step. As for my favorite, there are so many but as I sit 'fondling' my pretties I notice that most of them just now are Thimbleberries, Henry Glass, Maywood and some Moda's. There are others to be sure and they too are wonderful but those four seem to dominate my projects in waiting and my stash. Thanks for a fun post and have a wonderful weekend.

I know how excited you must have been when you found the kit! I missed out on Liberty Garden by Brannock/Patek several years ago and have searched for it ever since. Last month I finally found some in a quilt shop and it was even on sale!
By the way, Lake Street Mercantile in South Lyon, MI (and online) has both the Heather Ross fabrics mentioned by Donya.

Thank you for your blog. You have a great sense of humor. I have some pieces of Folk Art Christmas II that I started collecting after I saw a quilt someone had made. Now I can't even begin to tell you what it looked like. At the time there wasn't much FAC II around so for the next two or three years I bought some pieces of other Moda that blended nicely. At some point I gave up and moved on so if you would like some FAC II to add to your FAC III, let me know and I would be happy to send it to you. I would be happy to see it go to a good home.

OMGosh...YOU are toooo funny! I worked a a quilt shop when that fabric came out, and I have a stash of it. I have that pattern also, it was a free handout I think...Anyhoo, I've yet to cut into it also! Good hunting!

You've found a gold mine! I don't blame you for not wanting to cut into it!

You DO know about quiltshops.com, right? Where you can put what you're looking for in a search and all these shops pop up with what you're looking for? Just thought I'd mention it.....don't know what kind of luck you'd have with the older fabric, but you can try. I need some of Pandolph's "Bed of Roses"...but no such luck!

I can't believe this is someone else's faborite fabric. The first quilt I ever made was a twin size out of this fabric. What a mistake I should have made a King. Who knew that I would fall in love with quilting and this little twin would become my favorite. I now have a shop on etsy and I this little twin posted as an example of an Irish chain. It is one of my favorites. I always tell people when they are intersted that I match the fabric as closely as possible but have never come close to this great show stopper Folk Art Christmass III. Everyone just loves it when they see it. I wish it would be run again. What a shame.
