Friday Fings!

I found this at a vide grenier a couple of weeks ago.

It was pouring with rain and we very nearly didn't go.


It's really a curtain, but the fabric is quite thin.



I'm going to use it as the backing for my batik log cabins.


Which reminds me. I can't keep on calling it that. Anyone got any ideas?

More soon.

That backing is a perfect match for all the bright colors in your top! Did you choose it only for the colors, or do you also have a bird(s)?

With colors and a print like that, I'd say it should be named something like "(Log) Cabins in the Rainforest".

I hope you'll be posting some close-ups of that quilt.

I'd call it log cabins gone wild.

Excellent choice, good thinking! Very cheery and colorful!

The first thing I saw was the center which looks like a plus sign to me so "Positively Centered"

I was just watching Monk, a TV show.
It always starts with the song...
It's a Jungle Out There.

Because of the batiks, I would name it Polynesian Cabins or Indonesian Cabins. The backing fabric is just perfect!!
