My new friends Goldie, Swimmy, Splashy and Spooky


I was a bit late to get on board much with the Heather Ross craze.  I'm not exactly willing to spend $25 for a fat quarter.  I think a lot of her prints are super cute, but my absolute favorite was the goldfish in bags.  I just love them.  My fabulous friend, Leigh from my quilt group, offered to trade a piece of said goldfish for some of my scraps.  She stopped by the other day and handed me this great piece--about a fat 1/8.  I was really excited.  She perused my scraps, and we chatted about quilting.  She took a handful of scraps.  I definitely feel like I got the good end of the deal. 

Now I just have to make decisions about what to do with Swimmy, Spooky, Goldie, and Splashy.  Aren't they cute?!

  1. Very cute fabric. But I agree with you - $25 for a fat quarter is way above my spending level.

  2. Yeah I'm not into the heather ross craze, sure some of the fabrics are cute. . . but just not something I gotta have. (unless there's an awesome deal) What are your plans for the fishies?

  5. I had some HR yardage in my stash before I even knew who she was. Suddenly she was a big deal! I don't go crazy for the expensive stuff, though. I did a swap with another blogger for a few 6" squares, and other than that I only buy the prints that I get at decent price. :P

    I can't wait to see what you do with this! I have a yard or two of that print, I've sort of been holding on to it thinking it will end up on the back of a quilt one day. :)

  7. I fell in love with Heather Ross Mendocino. It is hard to find, but I have found some. I did splurge on a few pieces because I just could not get it out of my mind! I will make a pillow cover or two...something to enjoy for a long time and that will not get washed a lot or too dirty!

  8. Oh my goodness, those are adorable! I know I would have such a hard time finding something worthy enough to cut them up for! I am like you, I was a little late also with the Heather Ross...the more I see of it, the more I like it!

  10. How funny - I have a piece of Heather Ross goldfish that I just cut into last night! I'm late on the Heather Ross craze, too, but love the goldfish so much. I'm going to try paper piecing with mine - I cut small diamonds of several fish, and plan to frame them in polka dot triangles in coordinating colors.
    Have fun with your goldfish!

  11. This is definitely my favorite print from HR as well. I need to get my hands on some. I have the adorable bikes. Wanna swap one bike for one goldfish some time? :)
