A couple of weeks ago my daughter and I, along with two of her friends, went to the Textile Museum of Canada to see the Marimekko exhibit.
Just a little introduction for those of you who are not familiar with the Finnish textile company.
There was a lot to see.
Huge pieces of fabric.
Bright, vibrant colours, graphic.
This one was a reproduction.
Patterns and fabric samples.
Someone had a wonderful collection of garments (most of them were the same size.)
More garment patterns and a doll pattern.
Graphic floor cushions.
My daughter and her friends really liked the simplistic coat dresses. A 60s, Twiggy style for those of you who remember.
Lots of colour.
Lots of pattern.
Not all were simplistic. Some fabrics were quite busy with design.
At the end of the exhibit...
there was a great display...
I have my own piece of Marimekko fabric.
This is a long strip (it's folded on my lovseat) that was given to me by my blogging friend, Ulla
I will be using it in a special quilt that will hang in my home.
Just a little off topic: My family knows I always have questions and some of them are strange or 'off the wall.' Here's my question for today: it's about the Pope.
All the cardinals who could potentially have become Pope come in all different sizes. Tall, short, skinny and rotund. So, how many papal outfits do they have waiting for just the right person? The white garments that Pope Francis wore when he first appeared on the balcony looked like it fit like a glove - tailored just for him.
