a story, flea market fancy and graph paper...

I didn't get FMF the first release.
I was just finishing dental school, knee deep in debt, with a new husband, new baby and well...
A LOT of debt.
I couldn't afford to buy it.
When I realized that Free Spirit was releasing it again, I vowed to have a piece of each print.
I may or may not have gone over board
(yardage of some, FQ of each print),
I may not be done buying yardage.
Just saying.
Some of you may not care for the prints or that they have been re-released....
for me it a bit like a dream come true.

Anyhow,
I cut some new Flea Market Fancy Legacy yesterday.
Then popped out my graph paper.
See how organized I am?
Eventually the graph designs go into EQ7 and so forth.
There is a method to my maddness.

There will be a FMF quilt....
oh yes there will be...

I also love FMF. Never had any of the previous either. I am on an email alert at one of the online stores for yardage. Do have some FQs also....simply love the aqua large print!

I didn't even know what quilting was when the line was first released but I've been saving for some FMF. I really love that fabric.

I love it but I got my fill the first go round at $2 and $5 a yard. I got spoiled! No stashing for a while here.

FMF as a whole doesn't float my boat but there are a few prints in the line that I like. I'm happy for you that you finally got some and get to play and make a Legacy quilt for yourself. :)
