We decided to be wild and crazy this summer and travel to Europe. I have a friend from college who lives in Hungary, so that was our destination. There were some lovely tile roofs in Budapest that are perfect patterns for a future hexagon quilt.
In the little town of Papa, my friend took my to the local fabric store. I left my camera with my husband, but just imagine floor to ceiling bolts of everything, piles cascading onto the cutting table – cottons, vinyl, silk, knits, anything under the sun. The clerk was just as wild – orange hair and black leather pants.
I am not sure what to make with them. Friendship stars maybe, with sunflowers, which are a big crop in Hungary.
Another traditional fabric/craft is indigo dyeing. I found this small piece in a gift shop and it might become a pillow.
What fabric souvenirs have you brought home from traveling?
