This morning I went to the thrift store close by. I found all kinds of goodies to cut up and make into quilts! Here are some pictures:
Don’t you just love the red fabric with the coffee pots? I only got a piece the size of 1/3 yard, so I will save that piece for something special.
The green fabric turns out to be a pillow case from IKEA and the orange fabric is an embroidered tablecloth. I think I will take the embroidery off later, maybe.
These two fabrics are actually mens shirts… going to cut them up too! The one on the left is a burgundy red with white and light gray crosses. The fabric on the right has a white background and light blue and gray checker pattern of some sorts. It is unusual… so that is why I bought it!
And last but not least:
On the left a vintage duvet cover and on the right the back of a Bert & Ernie duvet cover. Sorry Bert & Ernie, you will be “scissorized”!
As we speak, the fabric is in the washing machine!
Remember that there is a group of testers hard at work trying out my two patterns (Freedom & Dizzy)?
The first pictures for “Freedom” are coming in.
This is the star that Julie made:
And this one is made by Elisabeth:
I just love that the pattern looks so different if you place the light and dark fabrics in another place! I love these variations! Remarkably both testers used floral fabrics. It works so well!
Hope to receive many more pictures of your “Freedom” stars!
The orange table cloth is typical of a craft from the Netherlands. The fabric is available in a myriad of colours and it is embroidered for use as a tablecloth. It reminds me that I have a beautiful light blue/grey chunk somewhere. Love your ‘finds.’
Aha! Never knew that!!! Thank you for enlightening a Dutch girl!
From one to another it seems! 🙂
I made a table cloth in this fabric for my sister in green and white, and I have a peach and white one made into an apron that my Dutch grandmother gave me.
Yes, across the globe from each other, but really not so far apart! 😉
It really is a small world :)!
I just love that!
Nice new additions to the stash!
The tester blocks are looking just fabulous! Great pattern!
Thank you! I just love that it is simple in shape but gives you room to play with fabrics and values. Just my kind of thing really!
