Selections by Patty

I spent some time Sunday afternoon pulling some fabric from my stash for my tea towel medallion quilt.  Here is what I have so far.  A  rust and navy Marimekko dated 1994 that I bought at an estate sale, a pair of men’s linen pants from a neighbor’s garage sale, vintage cotton floral drapery fabric that was in a garbage bag of fabric that was given to me, scarps of linen, navy cotton/linen Essex, gold shot cotton, and a linen/cotton Asian print.  I tried to pick an eclectic mix of prints that varied a bit in scale.   What do you all think?

Eclectic is the perfect adjective to describe your fabrics. I think they look wonderful with your tea towel!

I think I like your towel! What a great base to start with, and the fabric choices look fine to me.
