Rainy Day Fabric!

Thanks for all the great comments on the quilts, keep 'em coming!

It's a rainy spring day here in Waynesville, the perfect time to show, in my opinion, the best fabric in the world!  

Imagine a raincoat made out of this!?!  Or an umbrella?  Robert Kaufman does Slicker, a laminated fabric, I think I'll tell them that this one is a must! 





Donkeys in rain boots? How do people come up with such cute stuff?  Jack and Jenny is from super creative Laurie Wisbrun.  You have to go to her blog and see the cute pics of real donkeys with her fabric.....adorable~
I have tried repeatedly to convince my 11 year old daughter that she needs this fabric in her room.  She is a huge Green Bay fan and her walls are painted blue.  It is really meant to be!   She's not budging, so I just bought some for myself and have it in my bedroom.  It matches absolutely nothing, but I love it!  What would you do with it?

  1. I'd make the rainboot print into an American Girl Doll raincoat. Just a little iron-on vinyl and it will be perfect. I'll be in Waynesville tomorrow to shop!

  2. I think this fabric is so cute! And I wondered the same thing when I first saw it -- how does she come up with this stuff ?!? I love making quilts for babies and children so I would definitely use it for a quilt or two for some of my nieces and nephews. I would also slip some bits into a scrappy quilt that was not necessarily for a child, just to add a bit of whimsy!

    1. I think a random donkey in a quilt would be fantastic!

    1. Laundry room!!! I can't believe I didn't think of it, especially since my personal Pinterest board is full of laundry room pipe dreams :o) Maybe this is what I need to make it happen!
