I'm working on a project right now that includes some "international" fabrics that are traditional to places around the world. I'm using leather from Iceland (fish leather!), hand dyed silk velvet from Australia, and Asian silk at the moment. It's so much fun and it's truly amazing what fabrics you can find at quilt shows! Here's a peek.
Here's the back of the fish leather. It's salmon! It's amazing to work with. I haven't bought more. YET....
I hope you get to quilt today!
