Marimekko Wall Hanging

My husband and I treated ourselves to this wonderful piece of Marimekko fabric for Christmas in, oh, 2007 or 2008. It took us a couple of years to get it on the wall after that!

First Eric built a frame from 1" x 2" lumber. Then we covered the frame with drapery interlining (think thick, napped and natural in color). Without padding the frame, we could see it through the face fabric. Then we carefully stretched and stapled the piece. Definitely a two-person operation.

I have loved living with this bold graphic, and I'm eager to make more fabric art.
