A Favorite Fabric

This is one of my favorite fabrics of all time. I just found it at Quiltbook.com and ordered all they had. Carol has some wonderful other Civil War choices there.

I've made two dolls with this fabric and just found a source for it! Do you have a fabric that is your favorite and you get sad when you get to the end of it? This is mine.

In the doll above it was used in its off the bolt state...
in the doll below I overdyed the fabric with tan to soften the contrast.

I need to start doing like Edyth Flack Ackley and keep a little swatch of the fabric and pictures of the dolls I used them on. But maybe that's what my blog is for?

Hi Dixie,
I can very much relate to your fabric quandary. I've got several fabrics that I just can't seem to cut into until I can find a little more of them! Your dolls look charming in that fabric.
