In what seems like a lifetime ago I spent my winters in a not-so-little-now fishing village called Troncones in Guerrero Mexico. My friend and I would load up the truck with our bikes, my dog Fe and our bikinis to make the three day drive from Flagstaff.
I feel fortunate to have done this, I love the people of Mexico, admire their love of family and of course L-O-V-E their food. I have loads of the funny kinds of stories one would have when language isn’t always clear. I however can not top Jefe telling some senoritas that he was pregnant, nor will I forget them bursting into laughter.
The mercados would be full of kitchy folklore influenced goods that I thought of when I spotted this fab Alexander Henry at Quiltsandwich. I instantly ordered two yards ( Cartas Marcadas). This morning I made some napkins to replace the tattered. I’ve been eating up a few of my choice Alexander Henry novelty fabrics by making napkins, so I’ll likely have some more to show you soon.
I added a few ‘active solids’ I’ve been eyeing. I’ve had a thing for gray lately because I fell in love with this simple quilt. The woodgrain is so subtle on the Michael Miller Les Amis Faux Bois and I wanted to nab it before it disappeared. Never enough of the Pearl Bracelet, only one of the best fabric lines ever produced.
Carolyn Friedlander’s Architextures is another one of those great blender lines. The hit of navy wavy lines is a perfect addition to the few navy fabrics I have in my collection. Navy can keep on trending in my opinion. It’s great to add another dark color to the value mix.
I love the grid on the background of this one here. The more graphic designs that continue to be pumped out the better.
Thanks Quiltsandwich for the great additions!
Happy Sunday and Happy shopping!
