Woke up this morning obsessed with sewing Thanksgiving napkins.  I used fabrics that are reproductions of textiles popular in the southern U.S. at about the time of the Civil War.  They're super easy to make-- just a hemmed 22" square with mitred corners.  Happy T-day!

The Smithsonian commissioned RJR Fabrics to print these patterns in 1994.  The collection was called "Rising Sun."  The original fabrics were in a quilt made by a woman in 1830.  So thankful to have stashbusted!
