Thought for Thursday

A commenter on the giveaway post asked about the fabric I used on the back of the giveaway pincushion. Amazingly, to me at least, the selvage was still intact on the fabric. How did that happen? (It's "home sewing is easy" by Alexander Henry, by the way). But in the course of things, I was googling sewing fabric and came across this piece by Sharon Yenter of In The Beginning Fabrics.

Let's just enlarge this portion a bit...

I'm pleading the 5th Amendment...

Don't forget that today is the last day for the Sew Mama Sew giveaway. Leave a comment here and I'll choose a winner at 4 p.m. PDT.

I LOVE that fabric!! I just saw some at my LQS! After seeing your post here, and really looking at it, I may have to go get some. it would make some pretty fabulous kitchen valances! I'm looking to doing our kitchen in a "retro-theme". Bad thing is that the LQS wants $10.95/yard! Why are quilt shops so dang expensive?!

Thanks for sharing those great fabrics. I had to send the second one to my son, because we are on the threshold of college :-)

What funny fabric, and what a great idea, although my kids are 2 and 3, so it might be a while before I can send them away!
