|The floral white and black in the center is the same as in Genevieve's quilt,|
from a thrift store skirt.
|This mat has upholstery fabric (charcoal gray with vines|
and beige linen moiré, both given by my sister Nancy),
and new buttery and gray dot fabrics I bought
|This linen is heavy. It was a dream to sew, until I got to the binding.|
I won't ever bind with such heavy fabric again if I can help it.
Still, I LOVE this linen and will make many more things with it.
My sister Nancy gave it to me.
|The back of the linen mat is a fabric long in my stash,|
but I cannot remember for the life of me where it came from.
Nancy, no doubt.
|Nancy gave me this dotted upholstery fabric, and also the red cotton,|
which looks like batik. The dotted fabric looks much richer in person.
I was stymied about how to quilt it,
because I didn't want to detract from the simplicity of the design.
In the end I kept it simple with four squares.
|Nancy gave me this linen toile, just delicious.|
I paired it with the dots, which she gave together,
and they are perfect paired, even if one is on the front
and one is on the back.
I love Chinoiserie.
