a whole lot of flea market fancy… in a quilt (finally!)


I’m sure I’ve mentioned before that Flea Market Fancy was the line that got me hooked on fabrics. Almost two years ago I received a tiny bit of the green seedling print in a scrap bag and immediately fell hard for it. At the time, it took me a while to even figure out what line it was and who had designed it. Since then I spent far longer than I should have collecting the prints from the line. (Many many thanks to those of you who provided tips, swapped, or even just generously sent along some extras — you know who you are! — I very much appreciate it!)

I’ve been using it sparingly in many quilts, but I’ve finally bit the bullet and decided to make a quilt out of the whole line.


I decided to model it after the Good Folks quilt I made for my sister, using large squares of the Flea Market Fancy prints and mixing in a few blocks which are made up of the print paired with a corresponding solid. It’s pretty big and I’m so looking forward to curling up with it on the couch. What’s kind of funny though is that despite my love of this quilt top, I still cringe a bit just thinking about the quantity of FMF I used up in this quilt! (and I bet I’m not the only one!)
