Vintage Folk Twill

These are vintage twill curtains that I bought from a thrift store years ago (and debated at the time whether I liked the print enough to buy it — crazy lady!). Now I love how it’s Penn-Dutch folky but a little less sweet/a little more wild than usual midcentury folk prints. I recently turned some into a pillow (using this House on the Hill tutorial). There is info in the selvage but unfortunately it’s half cut off and illegible.

Downloadable color palette on Kuler.

P.S., after a two-year hiatus, I’ve updated my sewing/craft blog, Dioramarama … it’s an entry about sewing knits (specifically a baby T from Meg McElwee‘s book Growing Up Sew Liberated). Check it!

    I have a small piece of this same fabric in a different colorway. I love it so very much. I doubt I will be able to bring myself to cut into it.
