The photo doesn't do the butterflies on the left justice - they are really stunning, and the color combinations are great. And, I love the greens in the fern/butterfly/ginko print, which also happens to be a Vera design.
I was also lucky enough to find this set of four grey linen floral print napkins and this other linen piece which eludes me as to its function (not quite large enough to be a tea towel, but wrong shape to be a napkin...), but I love the appliqued roadrunner:
I can see making some sort of quilted wall hanging centered around the little roadrunner.
I love the idea of using vintage linens in my quilting, but I've read numerous warnings not to do this in the quilting books. They claim the fabric may already be quite worn, may have been cheap quality to begin with, etc. Anyone have opinions on this, either positive or negative? Or success stories? It just seems that there are too many beautiful vintage pieces begging to get re-used and recycled into something new.
