More Vintage Heals Fabric

While I was Up North over Christmas, we popped back to Deskford Garden Galleries to see if they had any more nice vintage fabric remnants. Turns out they did! I picked up another couple of pieces of the Colleen Farr fabric, plus another design that I thought might be her too, but is actually Verdure by Peter Hall (check out that orange version!). Both are originally from Heals.

I’ll be using these for the back of my quilt, which I’m pretty excited to get back to work on. I did also leave a few pieces behind so if you’re in the area, you can go grab them, and have some nice cake too.
