A little shopping this weekend

This little piece of fabric HAD to come home with me. Now what to do with it.
Any suggestions?

A little quilt rack sitting in front of the antique store begged me to bring it home too.
I'm off to the hardware store (sandpaper, paint and a dropcloth (can't forget that - I'm a messy painter). My quiltrack needs a makeover.

What pretty fabric. It would be nice to trim teatowels for your kitchen. And what a great find, fancy spotting the quilt rack like that.

First off the rack is really cute. but the fabric!!!! I so love it. I think you should use it for an inspiration point of appliqueing a quilt full of dutch shoes with different fabrics...well, thats just a suggestion but it would be really cute!

Cute fabric, Lynn! I love anything with red in it. I agree that it wants to be appliqued. Great find in the rack; that'll be handy for displaying your pretty finishes.

Ooh, I love that fabric! It should definitely go with some pinwheels.
