Carpenter's Tools are in the bag. Irene MacWilliam


I bought some narrow striped black and white fabric at FOQ after much searching. However when I got it back to the hotel I discovered it was navy and white. Although the tools look to be a different fabric it is an illusion, it is due to the black and red vertical lines of quilting. The stripes are so narrow that I am not sure I could make a large hanging with this fabric.

  2. Love how the thread work changed the cloth appearance. It's a great illusion.
