Fabric Friday

You know what would be cool? If I had infinite amounts of money and could buy whatever fabric I wanted...

Like this lovely by Patty Young from her Andalucia line. I've been thinking that I need more tone on tone fabrics in my stash that can be more multi-purpose. This would be a good choice. Its utterly usable and still oh so interesting. There's a little flair of exoticism and the color is to die for.

Here's another tone on tone-ish fabric that would be a must buy (if I was buying fabric that is). I love love love this. It reminds me of those weird little fungi that grow on the side of fallen know what I'm talking about (see picture below). They're kinda gross looking, but they're so tactile. You HAVE to touch them. This is the same way. Highly tactile and highly engaging. I'm having a VERY hard time not buying this one!!!

Weird tree fungi...see the resemblance???

My final pick isn't even close to a versatile tone on tone. This Keri Beyer print is flamboyant and apologetically flashy...just like the peacock it emulates. I'm not sure I'd use this in a quilt though. Imagine trying to sleep with all those eyes watching you. CREEPY!!!! This would make an amazing accent pillow or something though. apron!!!! There's an idea!

As always, click on pictures for original context, and to buy!!! I was going to be dog in the manger-ish and not let anyone else buy my fungi fabric, but then I thought better of it. Quick!!!! Snatch it up before my resolve weakens and I buy it!!!!

I'm not so sure about mushrooms on my fabric, but I love the red tone on tone.
