"Shirtings are simple, small scale designs on an off white or colored ground. They were a staple of 19th century dry goods merchants. Dots, circles, isolated floral motifs and stripes were economical to print and popular for both clothing and quilts. Here are some of my favorites from a past century. These shirtings are perfect for 21st century merchants!" - See more at: http://newfabs.com/gallery/item/37-margos-favorite-shirtings#sthash.BUGwvLN8.dpuf
