Old Connections: Wallpaper and Fabric

Don't you love Syncronicity!

I was browsing old family photos earlier today. Later in the morning I was trying to track down the designer of a contemporary fabric panel in my collection. 

In the process I stumbled across the Blue Hill website and saw their new "York" collection

The fabric looked so much like the wall paper behind my parents in a 1955 photo I had just stumbled across earlier this morning that I had to go back and look at the family photo again. 

Although it is not an exact match, it is so very close and was so exciting to find! 

Now I think I'll need to make a wall quilt using this line of fabric to frame the photo of my parents. Yes, one more UFO to add to my list...

Yippee! It's sunny today here in the Islands!

PS: Update - I wrote a little more today.


  1. You have a great eye to "see" the sameness ...... now I have to go look at ALL of the York line.

    1. I was very pleasantly surprised, believe me, that my brain remembered and recognized it so quickly! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read the blog!
