This holiday season I had two different people ask me what I wanted - and I don't think they expected the answer I gave them.
One was my brother - "what do you want for Christmas" he asked.
"old shirts" - I said - "old shirts I can take apart for the shirting fabric for a quilt project I have in mind."
He may have thought it was crazy - but this is what was under my tree:
Boy do I love my brother! There were four shirts rolled up in this little bundle!
The next bundle was a "thank you" gift from our bride and groom from Japan. Toshi offered to bring me something from Japan... and I sent him a link to a fabric store that carried Japanese style fabric and said "if you can find something like this..."
Well - they did - and then some!!! WOW!
The bundle before I opened it - even the furoshiki is great fabric!
The contents all stacked up.
The smaller fabrics - probably about 1/2 yard each.
The larger pieces -I think about 1 yard each.
Most of these are cottons - but have a nice texture to them like a homespun or a "raw silk".
Now to find the right projects for these!!! Hmm.....
Thanks everyone for thinking outside the box!!!!
