Playing Favourites!!!

It's Friday and time for a Party!!!  Suz and I have been cooking up a plan for all of us to show off our favorite little bits - or large bits - of fabric!  Come on!  You know you all do it!!!  You squirrel away that special little bit of fabric that you have used down to the last inch and a half....or maybe you have yardage, but you won't dare cut into it!   So here is your chance to Play Favorites and show off your bits!!! 

I will start with a few pictures of my all-time favorite fabric.

First up is an American Jane - Dot of course!!! 

This is all I have left of this hoo :(   And this is a case where I didn't realize how much I loved it until I had almost used it all up!!!  I don't even remember where I found it and finding it again I am sure would be almost you do that?  Decide once your fabric is gone or a line is discontinued, that now, it is your very favorite on the planet!!! 

So next up is a collection of Katie Jump Rope....again, too little - too late!!!  WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?  I keep this collection of Denyse Schmidt fabric in a special box - separated from all the other fabrics.  It is sort of like the Ark of the Covenant!!! 

I love this entire line in every colorway!!!  But I know I am not PLEASE Denyse Schmidt.....give us Katie Jump Rope again!

Here is your chance to show us the goods....your favorite fabric(s).  It would be wonderful if you could add a little blurb about your fabric on a blog post with pictures and head over to Susan's blog at Patchwork and Play to link your post up with Mr. Linky!!!   You will find my favorites there and I can't wait to see what you have been hiding in that sacred box of scraps!!!
Have a wonderful Friday and enjoy the Party!


  1. oh ...have you ever touched a sensitive area!! I was just telling someone I have fabric I love so much I can not use it! I feel...once it is cut and used the clock starts ticking..........soooooo I don't cut it!!

  2. I've got too many favourites, sometimes I don't relise how good they are until I see I have it in several quilts and there's no more.
    I still have my fat quarter collection of Katie jump rope, I'm saving it for just the right time.

  3. I just started a fabric collection not quite a year ago. (I just started sewing) Ha! So my favorites are few and far between. But, I can't part with the first fabrics I used to sew my first project last year, my daughters baby quite.

  4. I haven't been in a couple of months, by one of the LQS around here still has KJR priced at 9-ish a yard. Cosmic Cow in Lincoln, Nebraska and yes, they take phone orders.

  5. i love katie jumprope too. DS is one of my faves for sure!

    free spirit is reprinting a limited run of flea market fancy early next year. maybe katie jumprope will be next??? who knows! :)

  6. Not sure I can join you with this,
    as I've only recently started buying new fabrics.
    I do have scraps of favourite vintage materials, which is worse in a way because once they are gone I can't replace them!!

    ps. one of my favs is the herringbone.

  7. Finally got round to commenting!( Was frightened to check to see if Mr Linky worked!) I love your sweet little piece of red spot! And I have never had any Katie Jump Rope! I am SO jealous!

  8. yeah mary! i just got my post up, Im playing along, its so much fun!

  9. Lol, I have a piece of that American Jane dots about that size and I've saved it,I'll use it for something. Flea Market Fancy was such a perfect range! I was too late to get much. I can't believe they don't reprint it, it would sell in a flash!!

  10. I have about ten little snippets (about the size of your dots) of FMF that I am going to use in a little ticker tape doll quilt one day.

  11. 2012 will be the year that I begin quilting. Thanks for the inspiration.

  12. So much fun!!!! I just blogged my favorites....funny how many love Denyse Schmidt! THANKS!

  13. I keep my tiny Katie Jumo rope collection is a special zip lock too. Too posh to mix with the other fabrics!
