Fabric Fancy: Glasses

Today’s fabric fancy all started with this post on Red Pepper Quilts.  I love love love her quilts, and I can guarantee that whatever fabric she backs her quilts in, I will want a million yards of it.  I usually am able to resist, but I absolutely couldn’t with that Julia Rothman typewriter print.  Which followed too much time trying to track down where to buy some.  Short answer: nowhere.  I couldn’t find any place that had any.  I am holding out hope for my next trip to Sarah’s fabric in Lawrence – that store can hold hidden gems.

But my trip to a bazillion online fabric sites yielded some other finds.  I totally got suckered into the glasses trend.  The damage is limited to these little bits.  There are probably a dozen other glasses prints out there, but these will do for now.

I know they will make it into my “Favorite Things and Raccoons” quilt that I am slowly working on.  Because one of my favorite things is my new glasses… these new specs were winding their way to me the same time this fabric was…


I think the geeky glasses might be one of my thangs.
