Calico Madam

Calico fabricsThere is something about calico I have always loved. I think it goes back to Little House on the Prairie, my most favorite books when I was a little girl. The Ingalls girls were ALWAYS wearing calico, and I know that my 1980's everyday wear seemed much less romantic than Laura's bonnets and prairie dresses.

While in Phoenix last weekend with Faith I picked up all these fun prints - some are from a great remnant store and a few are old sheets purchased at a thrift store. I can't wait to make things from them, and looking at all the colors together just makes me happy : )
