Vintage fabric-- quilt planning
I found so much of this fabirc today....it is the largest loom size I've ever seen and I got about 8m worth of it...for $8.00 which i thought was reasonable for such a huge piece of fabric. I really like the subtle tones in this fabric...and the way the fabric feels as it is a medium weight cotton. I actually have enough to make a doona cover paired with a plain cotton on the back and a set of pillopw casses and a large patchwork quilt too.
i think the print on it's own is ok but really i just liked the colours.
i'm really looking forward to having a non-clothing project.
I used to hate patchwork because of their over the top purple versus orange colour schemes or when they are brown or something...i just really hate the ärt quilts" because they always look like someones throw-up on them.
mind you this floral will probably make some feel sick too....ahwell..tough.
p.s the fabric print is actually larger and wider spaced than this photo i just scanned it in and shrunk it down.
