I love to collect pieces in all the color options available, when I find a print I like. I love dots and I was really drawn to the colors, the scale of dots and the loose weave, almost feedsack quality of this fabric. Isn't that gold dot great? Well, they all are.
I wish I had the above fabric in yards and yards. It is so pretty in all the colors and the roses are just so 'me'. I totally love the flower-on-check design.
I'm always pulled towards gingham. Sometimes gingham is slick, or has polyester or has a sheen to it I don't like. This is quilt weight gingham with a tiny bit of feedsack thrown in. The colors are really perfect, too.
I'm not exactly sure what project all these will be used in but they will not be sitting on the shelf for long. I acquired them through China and if I could get larger yardage pieces in them, I would. I'll be happy with just a taste of each color for now.
Speaking of color and things I love...Check out the A-Two website of Atskuko Matsuyama. I go pretend shopping there and I would real shop there if I could speak Japanese. I want to jump into the website and get some of everything. In particular, I fell in love with the Rainbow Macaroons. They look kind of hard to make but I'd love to try. I looked on Etsy to see if there were any ready made for sale. No dice. If anyone knows of a pattern to make a zipper macaroon, please let me know.
