Last year I was at a Quiltshow in the USA, I saw a pattern of
GREEN TEA AND SWEET BEANS
Normaly I work with reproduction fabrics now all bright colours.
only a few blocks to go and fillers to make
Last week I was in Paris visiting l' Aiguille en Fete.
And Will (not so zen In Paris) Elsbeth was there also.
We found a beautifull Chintz fabric no name in the selvedge.
The boys From the Netherlands pretent that they are making
the only good chinz fabric, that they invented Chintz fabric.
There fabrics are reproductions and so are the others.
There is a kind of war going on who makes the chintz fabric.
See this sample I bought at DREYFUS In Paris.
This is not from them!!!!!!!!
I think there are more important things in live to make
such a quarrel over.
Maybe it is time that they( the boys) stop there actions.
Dreyfus Chintz fabric.
And of course there is my family quilt with antique Chintz fabric.
