I found some oldies but goodies at a street fair this week
I just love the older fabric. And the colors will fit in anywhere in a quilt. The one on the left looks like a fabric Jen Kingwell would use in her quilts. I came of age quilting during the floral era, so I will always love them, but I am saving some of them for Bonnie Hunter's floribunda quilt
The sides of the wool bag have to be hand stitched with linen thread wrong sides together. I can only do this a little at a time or it hurts my hands. I do not want to have hurting hands sigh...If i finish that today, I have the handles to hand stitch to the bag. so exciting....
