Sixties Fabric



I'm surprised at how much fabric I have like this in plastic tubs labeled "Recent Past." I imagine I have a stack taller than I. I am going to save one small scrap, a repeat of each, and sell the rest at the garage sale---if things work out. These prints have a lot in common, sort of a sketchy, watercolor look that must have been popular in the 1960s. I love the paisley translated into sketchy, artistic lines with blobs of color.

I think you are going to have a textile stampede at your garage sale.

Our friend Jan said she is coming to buy fabric to make into rag rugs. WAIT A MINUTE! This is too good for rugs. Not good enough for quilts, or big enough for clothes. But RUGS? Maybe I'd better put it back in the plastic tubs.
