Do You Remember???? When this fabric might have been all the "rage"....just perfect to go with dusty pinks or soft greens? Ya. A very long time ago, I told you readers I had quite a lot of fat eighth's left, when I ended my shop. There is another quilt, using just the fat eighths....in progress. You haven't seen those blocks yet..*G*. These 4 fat eighths are the last(I HOPE!) of this particular fabric purchased back in 1989 for my shop. They were still hanging around when I ended the shop in 1996. And 10 years later...they are still living at my house...but their time has come. It's use or banish!!! I'm choosing USE IT UP!

I have some too---pink backed and I made a dress out of it years ago as you said. I think it is in a bag for cutting up for the cotton. There were other colorways that may be lurking around here in strips and such like.

The bowties look good and quite textural with the raised centers and the flannel.

I have seen this somewhere...hopefully not on something I used or wore. UGG! Not a choice I would make today, anyway. But styles do change.

Finn, I made the cutest (at least at that time) Easter dress for my daughter out of this same floral fabric in the early 90's. I think she was three at the time. Now strips of it are in various scrap quilts. Thanks for the memories :)

Wow, I've been quilting and had to come catch up on blogs... I have a lot of florals I got on e-bay. I'll be looking to see what you do with yours!
