Flea Market Fabrics!


The exclamation mark in the title is to convey my excitement.  :)
It seems like F O R E V E R since I've been to the Lawrenceburg (antique and vintage only) flea market.  Many of the scheduled weekends last year were rained out or conflicted with family events and I was sick for the first one of this year.  But Mom and I finally made it there this past Sunday.
It was a beautiful day and I was able to find several pretty fabrics.
Let's start with the one that did not make the group picture above.


It's a mid century modern rayon dress fabric with orange poppies...and there is over 7 yards! Love it!


I also found a couple of cute border print fabrics in pink.

And what I really like about these is that the pretty floral border is mirrored along the other selvage, too.

A couple of aqua quilt fabrics also came home with me.

And last but not least, a few rolls of pastel blanket binding...just because they were so pretty.  :)

So , although it wasn't the largest haul of fabrics, it was a nice start to flea market season for me.  What about you? Any good flea market finds lately?

Yippee for flea market finds. That orange poppy is fabulous! Screams of wanting to be a Summer dress! Oh a Summer maxi dress -- if only I sewed clothes.

Hi Stephanie!
I pictured a cute summer skirt when I saw it. But like you, I don't sew clothes...yet. ;)

Great finds, Kimberly! You have me wishing I could join you - I haven't been to a flea market in awhile and I love the thrill of the hunt. ;o)

Any plans for that gorgeous poppy fabric?

Whoops. Just read the other comments...

Hi Katherine!
It was a fun day, I wish you could have been there too. 
As far as that amazing poppy fabric, although I would love to make a skirt, it’s a little out of my comfort zone.
So, I’m thinking of making a couple pillows for my porch (which is has REAL orange poppies growing nearby), then selling the rest .
