Frugal Scraps

Here's a little look at the ticking collection that arrived from Elizabeth Baer. I was so inspired when I received it that I wrote to Polly Leonard at Selvedge Magazine in London and asked her if we could write an article about this curated collection of old, utilitarian fabric. Not only was Polly interested in the idea - but she wants to put this story into her Frugal edition out this spring - sounds perfect to me!

That is a beautiful sight. I'd love to have a print of just that to frame. Your books and style has truly inspired me.

I am so very excited about your new Moda line! I LOVE Moda fabrics!I hope some of these make it in there. I also hope that vintage bird print hanging in the bedroom on the front cover of the French Inspired Home book makes it into a collection!

What a precious sampler of ticking fabric. This piece is a work of art I would love to have on my wall....hmmmm. I have a collection of pillow ticking sample pieces from the 50's sitting in my craft space. I am inspired once again by Kaari at French General!
