When I first started sewing about 6 years ago, I fell in love with Flea Market Fancy. But it was already out of print and I had a hard time finding any anywhere. About four years ago, someone posted on their blog that they had found Flea Market Fancy at a quilt shop in Massachusetts. I called the shop and placed an order for NINE yards--the biggest fabric purchase I've ever made at one time. By the time I called, the owner had already sold out of a few prints, so even though I missed out on the ever illusive blue seeds, I was so excited!
I didn't follow a pattern, choosing to simply cut 12.5" x 6" rectangles and lay them in four piles (three of one print and the fourth alternating between the blue posies and an Amy Butler hexagon print.) Then I sewed them into rows alternating two vertical and two horizontal. It made an un-intentional zig zag pattern, which I really liked. The back is pieced with a beautiful piece of vintage fabric that I found at an antique shop in Eastern Washington.
