Show & Tell Friday for June 12

I had a lovely morning with my friend Lynne and so did not get a show & tell posted yet. For today, though, I decided to share some interesting prints from my fabric stash.

Here is the oldest one (in this group). I think my great-aunt gave me this. The print is vintage red and green, but is not in the least Christmasy. In fact, the motifs are rather summery.

This flocked daisy print was a remnant, I think, from something one of my daughters made. I love the fuzzy daisies.

I used this fabric for a cookbook cover one time, and made a neat hot mat from it more recently.

My daughter gave me this fabric with a French street scene. Sorry I got the fabric in the scanner a bit crooked. There is much more to the scene, but this gives you an idea.

This Alexander Henry print reminds me of the illustrations in Dick & Jane books. I purchased this at Keepsake Quilting.

This woodsy, wintry fabric is one I've had for a long time. Each little vignette (cabin, skis, deer, snowflakes, etc.) is framed in birch twigs. I hope to use this fabric in some way when we redo our living room.

This nifty soda pop-bottle print was one I recently found at a local thrift store. There's only a small amount of it, and I think I will eventually make some cloth napkins from it.

That is my simple Show & Tell for today. To see what others have shared for Show & Tell Friday, head on over to There is No Place Like Home.

Happy Show & Tell Friday!
