I recently came across two finds at Britex Fabrics in the sale section. I always like to look there, because I can find treasures sometimes! One time I found a piece of Liberty of London fabric. Score!
This time I found the two fabrics in the top picture. Both are really nice, smooth cottons.
The striped one--what fun colors are they?!--is an Italian cotton, and feels almost like a shirting weight. It is 60" wide and there is a little over a yard of it. I think I will have some fun using these nice stripes in a quilt top. I'm imagining the stripes with nice coordinating colors.
This very large polka dot is a more sheer fabric. It is 54" wide and about a yard long.
Doesn't it drape nicely? I'm thinking maybe a scarf.
