Default I confess - I love kids prints

There, I said it. They're so cheery and silly and bright and fun and full of imagination and dreams. As a matter of fact I make cloth dolls too. I'm 59.

Is this wrong?

Actually, I don't care. I've made "proper" quilts in the past but every time I see a kid print that makes my eyes widen I just want to twirl.

So I guess I should just go for it.

And how about you? What's your fav fabric theme?

Nothing wrong with your being "young at heart!" I love the "girly" stuff. Just love pink and purple!

I enjoy the kids prints also, and that is part of the reason that I do quilts for Project Linus.

I like polka dots and swirls in bright colors.

I like it all. Hawaiian prints are on top of my list but I have been making a good amount of reproduction print quilts. I get to have fun with kid prints and make NICU donation quilts for preemies.

The other day someone mentioned making doll clothes and I thought of my dolls- they haven't been played with or had new clothes in decades! All my REAL dolls are boys so they weren't very interested in mine haha
Now I want to get them out and make new clothes for them.
Very little fabric I don't like. Not crazy about purple, or anything that has that frosted look but I'm very easy to please fabric-wise!

I really love any prints that relate to kids, big or little.

I love the saying "Young at heart; slightly older in other places"! That's you!

I'm drawn to artistic-looking fabrics. Ones that look like water colors or artist drawings. Susan Winget fabrics are some of my favorites.

I do love to make baby and children's quilts.

Yup, I'm a kid's prints addict too. I make simple quilts with the fabric and donate to Project Linus and other charities looking for kid's quilts. So much fun knowing the kids will like them too.
