Finished Finishing

Enough of finishing.
Here's the last of the lot:
It's called Free Floating.
And here are a couple of details:

The details show a couple of my all-time favorite fabrics.  
The blue-green fingerprint with the occasional black dot is glazed, which gives it a wonderful crispness.  And it is vintage--exactly what vintage, I don't know, but it was well-aged when I got it years ago at Beverly Hills Silks & Woolens.  BHS&W was a set decorator's paradise where bark cloth and 36"-wide fabric, as well as almost anything else you fancied, could still be found on the bolt. The other fingerprint fabric is an African Dutch wax print. I like the two together--the fingerprint collection.

  1. I love this quilt.

    Have you ever noticed the amazing fabrics of hospital gowns? Great vintage-y old-men's-pajamas prints that you never see anywhere else.
