I am always on the lookout for fabric for wholecloths and as backing. You may remember the turkey red paisley fabric throw from Glasgow that turned out to be too nice to dismember and use for fabric!
Well, here is another of my finds which arrived today.
It is unused - from the 1960's, supposedly....and the fabric is a nice blue cotton sateen, and a large piece of a print. Red ribbon enclosing a leaf or flower motif, nice and cheerful..
These throws were an inexpensive way to make warm bedding from an old woollen blanket. It was easy to sew them up, no quilting needed....careful sewing was not required, either!
The older cloth is of a higher quality, I feel, than modern fabrics...and will be very suitable to use for other projects.
This throw is from Fraserburgh, Scotland. The best part - the cost of this throw was only £10. I doubt that I could buy suitable modern fabric for that price!!
I feel a small wholecloth coming on....
