one of my favorite Colorado events is Quilt-a-fair. It's an event where fabric and quilting vendors set up booths at the fairgrounds. Having gone for several years now, I know to make a beeline for a vendor in the back corner that offers up pieces of older fabrics.
From this booth, I bought a yard of this gem for $4.
A piece of bird fabric in awesome drab colors.
A sweet print of candy jars drawn on plaid grid background ($3 for a yard)
A floral in a shade of orange that can be hard to find (half a yard for a buck)
I like all these together too:
Some daisies on a blue background (fat quarter for fifty cents)
A polished cotton in gray and pink:
A yellow and black house print:
One of my favorite booths is an adorable mom-and-pop booth (actually a grandma-grandpa booth) where she sews on a featherweight while he handles the fabric transactions. It's a well curated booth of sweet vintage prints and I always buy a little something from them. This year, a pink plaid with avocado/berries:
And a sweet stripe:
I bought two yards of a bicentennial Declaration of Independence print at another booth:
I don't need any fabric of course, but vintage fabric is hard to resist when it is only a few bucks.
