you can’t go wrong with goldfish, right?

By far my favorite go-to print for a baby boy quilt. (I don’t know what I’ll do when I run out!)

The latest –


Simple brown and blue prints, with the goldfish as the star. I love it already.

    I love the brown stripe and the kei honeycomb! Do you have any suggestions for smaller neutral prints? I’m constantly on the search for other great dots, stripes, plaids and such… But I never know where to start.

    I know the feeling. I first saw those adorable fish on a pattern called surf shop by crazy old ladies. The fish were swimming around on the surf boards and I had to have them. I was on an eternal search for a fabric that had been retired for a year or so. I found one quilt shop that still had a bolt in their shop of the fish and the fish in the bags. Oh, I remember that feeling of walking into that shop and seeing the fabric… I kept going back until I had spent way too much money and had nearly bought it all. It will be such a sad day when it ends…

    I love these colors for the quilt… can’t wait to see it done.

    It’s amazing how cute a quilt can be before it’s even been started…or maybe it’s just that your fabric choices always look so nice stacked together. What’s the plan? Or do I dare ask, lest you choose to do another patchwork square quilt?! (Oh, MEAN! Just picking on you for picking on yourself…)

    That goldfish fabric IS amazing! We all need to write and have it reprinted if it is out of stock, seriously!

    I am hoarding a half a yard of the goldfish in a bag (I have plenty of the free-swimming goldfish) and I’m almost scared to use it, but I don’t want to run out!

    I’m hoarding a yard of that fabric, and the blue named fishies to go with it. When it goes out of print, it’s like a little treasure that I don’t even want to cut into until I have the perfect quilt in mind. Can’t wait to see yours – you always do such a nice job!

    I loooove this! I have my goldfish fabric pulled out in a stack, but the rest of the fabrics just aren’t inspiring me. THIS is inspiring!

    LOVE all the fabrics together! I’d love to see a post on how you think out what you’re doing…how you decide what pattern to go with based on both the yardage and fabrics you have…or did you buy the exact yardage needed for what you already had in mind? In other words, how did you get to this point and what’s the next step, etc., etc. I’m wondering if a post telling us what’s in a designer’s brain would help us end up with beautiful quilts like yours. šŸ™‚ Thanks…looking forward to the finished product!

    My favorite go-to print for boys was some animals from a Noah’s Ark print. I have run out and not found a suitable replacement. I know Heather Ross prints are scarce, but I just love that Goldfish.

    I will have to find a new go-to.

    I love that fabric, too, and yet I own absolutely NONE of it. Seriously need to think about buying up tons of Munki pajamas in that print.

    SO happy I have some of those little fishies. They are SO cute. But I really love the rest of the fabrics you chose to go with them. Can’t wait to see this quilt!

    I love the goldfish too! Sadly mine all got used up on a blanket for my little boy. Well sad for me but not for him – he loves it! Don’t you just love how soft it is! Can’t wait to see what you make with it.

    My friend who has the goldfish in a bag quilt that you made in ’09 says that her baby is now trying to pick up the fish when she is lying on the quilt!
