What DO you do with the Bandanna Fabric?


Polly and I were asked at Quilt Market this past Fall about our bandanna fabric in the Flag Day Farm collection. What do you mean, "What do you do with it??" What can't you do with it? I have cut it up into little pieces to make quilts. I have made pillows. I have used it for a back of a quilt - to kind of make a reversible quilt, sort-of. I haven't made a shirt out of it yet. Mainly because most people would need only one bandanna for the main part of the shirt. Me..... it wouldn't work out that way. I think it would also make darling little girls dresses and skirts. Curtains, valances, bedskirts, etc.... What are you planning on using it for? I would love to hear?Polly and I have been working on a new fabric collection this past week. It is always kind of intense. I pace. I wake up in the middle of the night and make notes. I rip up magazines collecting inspirational pictures. I imbibe a whole lot of caffeine. The collection is taking shape. It isn't fine tuned yet - but we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Hooray.
Tomorrow I am going on a road trip! My friend Robin and I are going to Chicago for a day. Road trips and Chicago always make me think of THIS. I don't know if it will be that exciting. Neither Robin nor I smoke.
