I used fat quarters of Denise Schmidt's Hope Valley and I think its very 'old-timey' looking which works well with the whole 'hanging your clothes out to dry' thing.
In addition I've been able to take cute pictures of my crafty things hanging on my clothesline - case in point this cute little ditty bag I made for my nephew for his matchbox cars. (I made his sister one too to hold her 'quiet church toys' as a baptism gift - but I forgot to get a pic of that one).
I'm still knitting away and hopefully these posts are keeping you entertained while I get things wrapped up. :)
