Blooms, all the way from Iceland!

The lovely Berglind of Miss Bee & I decided to do a little fabric swap recently. Since she is in Iceland and I am in Australia, we are all but on geographically opposite sides of the world! Berglind bravely accepted the challenge of sending me 'something nice' and here is what arrived!
Beautiful, beautiful blooms! This fabric is called 'Olive Rose' by Valori Wells for Freespirit. It is stunning and a range I've not seen in Australia anywhere. Thank you so much Berglind - it is very special - you chose perfectly!
Even the selvedge is gorgeous!
And how rare to see FIFTEEN colour dots on the selvedge! (Poor Ric-Rac will be hyperventilating - hi Jodie!)
And there were other treats, including the PERFECT quilter's nail file. I am blessed with the best blog friends.
Now, what can I make of this I wonder?

  7. Just like you, I always look at the selvedges, and sometimes, after using the fabric, I keep the selvedge, to hard to trow it away !

  12. Olive Rose was on my biggest fabric loves list for a long time. I bought some from the US as you are right, it has not been readily available here in Aust and only a limited range was actually even distributed here! I've sewn mine up but it's currently in limbo land as to whether I've done it justice :-( I'll certainly check back to see what you do with yours.
