Sometimes you get tired of a particular type of fabric. Both Beth and I mused about this during the past year. We had gotten tired of our 19th century reproduction fabrics. The one exception was that we still adored shirting fabrics.
I love 19th century conversational prints. They were a style of shirtings popular from about 1880 into the 20th century. I bought a lot of reproduction fat quarters of the prints at the Lancaster Quilt Show about 17 or 18 years ago.
