Hidden in my large stash of fabrics, I recently rediscovered 12 small pieces of Da Gama Textile fabric from South Africa that I purchased about 15 years ago. Upon seeing them again, I decided I had to make a table runner to go with my collection of brown transferware. Since the fabrics were designed in England for Da Gama, they just seemed to go together. My 19th-century dishes are all from English potteries.
Can a person have too many platters? I don't think so!!
Not anything momentous going on at the Salmagundi household this month ---- just playing around with dishes and fabric!
For more about the quilting process of this runner, check out my quilting blog (click here).
P.S.: We now have a wildfire going to the west of us in the mountains -- hope and pray that it is contained soon. Lots of smoke and ash in the air here in town, so those of us who lean towards asthma and allergies are staying indoors.
Elsewhere, hope everyone is enjoying their summer.
