I love the rough weaved feedsack quality to some of them. They look and feel like they could have been made 75 years ago but are brand new.
I am in a babushka matryoshka phase right now. We have several authentic matryoshkas that my in-laws brought us back from Ukraine when they lived there for 3 years as mission president. The matryoshka trend is very big right now. I love these and these. And I still want to make a teapot cozy matryoshka. So this blue and red matryoshka fabric has inspired me to make a baby tumbler quilt for another niece expecting a baby. I cut out my reds and blues above and I'm going to sew it into bows like the other one I made below and quilt it the same. I think it will be cute. I know the blue is a little dark for a baby but I like unconventional baby quilts. It's so convenient to have all my fabric easily available soI can pull off colors from my baskets and shelves to blend into a new project. It makes putting a project together so fast and fun.
And . . . it snowed again yesterday and is snowing now. Sigh. - nanette
