Goodies from Finland


Jen, from Life's a Quilt, requested a trade a few weeks ago. She was looking for a specific fabric and was willing to exchange a small quilt for the fabric. Well; I decided to ask her if she would be willing to exchange some Finnish fabric for the fabric she was looking for and a wonderful exchange of fabric was brokered.
Here is a picture of the wonderful fabric and a little extra. The napkins are really cute, I will save them for something special. I already have ideas for the fabric and the ribbon is Christmas ribbon so I will come up with a Christmas project in the future to use that on.
I have been looking for Finnish fabric for a while but could not find any to purchase. My ancestry is Finnish and just thought it would be fun to have a small project made out of some authentic Finnish fabric. I am sooooo happy with what I have. Jen, you were spot on with your choices. I thank you very very much.
Good evening to all. Dot

Ah, Dot...maybe we're related! My paternal grandparents came over from Finland in 1901 and settled in Alaska where my dad was born and I was raised. My mom is 100% French...so I'm half and half. Maybe we share some common ancestry on the Finn side!
