Two Sides to Every Fabric Pile

Along with my purchase of those gorgerous new solid fabrics that I showed in my last post I also treated myself to some lovely striped prints that were designed by Kaffe Fassett. Below is a picture of them all grouped together, after being washed, ironed and folded...


And this is the back side... those colorful frayed threads were just to pretty to cut off!


I will be using these fabrics for some new art quilts as soon as I finish up my current works in progress, (which I hope to show soon!)

Ah... what could be better than a freshly laundered, ironed, and folded pile of fabric?

Thanks for the inspiration!
