Fabric District Goodies

Well I thought it was time for some more Paris pictures. You thought perhaps I was done… Not even close! Here are a few shots from the Montmarte fabric district right underneath the very steep stairs to Sacre Coeur. For those of you who don’t know what that is, you might recognize the picture? Its one of those places that most people have seen on touristy shots of Paris… Well right off to one side is a small group of winding cobblestone streets filled to the brim with beautiful fabrics. Many stores have fabrics on the sidewalk to draw customers in, fabrics in bins, fabrics everywhere. I could have spent the whole day here. I found one fabric that will be the inspiration for a new line…. you’ll have to wait a bit to see it but I promise I’ll show it when I’m ready.

    I was there once about 8 years ago. That is where I fell in love with toile, long before it was in the quilting fabrics in the US

    OK, you know how people talk about drooling over things they like? Well, when I saw your pictures I literally had some weird Pavlovian response and my mouth is full of drool. Thanks. Now I am a fabric dog.

    How do you come to the realization that you can’t bring it all home? I would abolutely go into a catatonic state with a migraine headache. That’s why I can’t ever go to the Houston show-sensory overload! I’m so glad you were able to make the trip. Looking at the pictures, I can see which ones you are keying in on. Can’t wait to see what you come up with.
