Dutch Chintz Fabric



I found the website of the company that creates the beautiful Dutch chintz fabric. It's expensive, but soooooooooooo beautiful. A little can go a long way in a scrappy quilt. The name of their store in Amsterdam is: Den Haan & Wagenmakers bv It truly is the most beautiful fabric I have seen. I bought a couple of pieces today that were about 16 x 20" and they were 7 euros a piece - so basically for one fat quarter I paid almost $9! I figure I will pick up one or two when I go look around at shops and slowly increase my collection. I'm not sure what I want to do with it yet. I keep coming back to the idea of flying geese (must be coming from my subliminal hatred of flying!)

That is so so beautiful! So maybe I shouldn't ask for a whole bed spread out of it?
