Followed a link there to read a post by Rachel Hauser at Stitched in Color where I followed a link to Marmalade Fabrics. Purusing page after page by selecting Fabric By Designer, my interest was piqued by a Tammis Keefe tribute print.

Here are a couple of my favorites (I think Nanny would’ve really liked the blue bird one, especially since her birthday was in September):

    

 

 

Do you have special vintage fabric pieces? What are your favorites to collect? How have you repurposed them?
