exciting news and the retro bird quilt

so the box is packed and ready to go to.... chicago! the owners of the soon-to-be-opening store, necessary exTRAVagance, in the andersonville section of chicago, illinois contacted me a couple months ago to see if i was interested in selling some of my items in their shop. of course i am! my first shipment is on the way...

i made a few items for a retro bird collection. first, is a quilt. it's made up of vintage upcycled sheets and new fabrics. i love this fabric, because it contains all of the common birds in my area: cardinals, black capped chickadee, gold finches.

i also made a couple dish towels from the same fabrics, on a 100% linen base.

if you're in the chicago area, stop by! the grand opening is may 16 and they can be found at
5416 North Clark Street
Chicago, Illinois 60640

you can also fan them on facebook or follow them on twitter @xtrvagnce!
