In the Cupboard for Over 30 Years
This pretty floral print has been with me a long time. I bought it in Liverpool in about 1980 and have only ever used it in backings on small items. For some reason it has never gone well with other fabrics that I have used and has never made it onto a quilt top. Yet again it is on the back of a quilt, which will soon be stuffed into an envelope to wing its way to Utah to Pattilou. The front of the quilt is a secret until Pattilou receives it...
I am slightly at a loss as to why this print never quite goes with anything else. I would understand if it were sludgy colours, or just plain ugly, but it is a really sweet design. Just another of life's mysteries.
