Fall Quilt Market 2011: Yuwa – Live Life

I’m not sure what Yuwa’s Live Life collection is about, since we have a kitchen print, a kid’s print, and a Christmas print here.

Daily Swatch: Circus Week

Ugh! So torn! A great black-background print … and four yards of it, for $24! But … clowns. They are clowns at their best and least scary, with horseshoe-shaped legs, even.
