Why did you choose this?
How big are the birds?
BEST ANSWER: The birds vary in size from 3 1/2 to 5 1/2 from the tip of the beak to end of the tail feathers! Randomly placed across the fabric.
Does the Ivory Windsong fabric have a lot of beige in the background?
BEST ANSWER: Yes, there is a considerable about of beige in the background.
which way does the print run? I want to make curtains with it so I want to make sure the birds are oriented the right way.
BEST ANSWER: It is as shown on line. The birds appear to be perched on branches looking at each Bird below. It is the most beautiful fabric, wonderful feel and easy to work with. Of all the Fabrics in our home, it is my husband's favorite and when we moved, he demanded I bring them with me and now they're hanging in our bedroom. We still enjoy them and they've been up for several years. In addition, we had them in our sun room at our other house and we would always get oohs and aahs regarding this fabric though I have other beautiful fabric all over. Again, it's quite lovely.
I just got the sample and love it but am afraid it's not durable enough for my couch (with teenagers). Any input?
BEST ANSWER: This is lovely fabric and a great choice for drapes, tablecloth, pillows. I would not use it on a sofa that will get heavy use. The pattern is printed on rather then woven in . This means that with use it will wear off. I always recommend a woven in pattern for upholstery. Good luck in your search.
I would like a coordinating check fabric to go with this print. Do you have a recommendation? Thank you.
BEST ANSWER: Waverly Cheerful Chambray Fabric and Robert Allen Moyen Check Seaglass Fabric are close to the colors in this pattern. We recommend ordering samples to make sure these will work for you.

Can you tell me what "half drop" means? I'm not familiar with the term. Thank you
BEST ANSWER: It's when the pattern is repeated halfway down the side in the vertical direction.
Approximately how much does it shrink if washed? I know you recommend dry-cleaning but I have parrots and want to use it for curtains in a room close to the bird room. Do not want any chemical fumes so would wash before making curtains. Thanks.
Can this be used to cover a chair?
BEST ANSWER: The fabric design is beautiful. The threads are soft with a slight shine. To address the question of covering a chair; lining was added in order to enhance the weight of the curtains made from this fabric.
I do not believe I would use this fabric for heavy wear items. Accent pillows for sofas and chairs would be lovely.
What color are the leaves? Are they a soft blue-green or a soft green?
BEST ANSWER: Definitely a cool toned green. We recommend ordering a sample to be sure that it will work for your project.
What is the average dimension of each bird and how many birds are there per yard?
BEST ANSWER: Depending on how you cut the fabric there are about a 12-13 per square yard.
Does windsong have a co ordinating fabric? I want windsong in one room and coordinating print in another.
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we don't carry any fabrics that go specifically with this fabric. Though they may not match perfectly, there are many other options. We suggest ordering samples if possible so you can see what looks good together.
What is the repeat size?
BEST ANSWER: The vertical repeat is 25" with a horizontal half-drop of 27".
Does this come in others colors?
I made soon-to-be-born Baby's first winter blanket - the backing is soft ivory flannel, the middle is vintage wool, the top layer is of these birds, bound with hand-stitched ivory blanket binding. I hope Baby's eyes are delighted.
I machine washed and dried this fabric first, in warm water. My machine drains into a sink, so I know the fabric was clean, and no color was lost. I don't miss the 'new fabric' slightly shiny, stiff chemicals at all. I didn't calculate the exact shrinkage, because I could afford to lose a few inches - we know cotton shrinks - and I gained material for a washable blanket. I ironed the fabric before sewing.
The greenery is pleasing and soothing, and the little birds are very exciting.
Although I only needed one yard, I had to get two, because of the way the fabric came off the bolt - the lady was nice enough to check. With the leftovers, I made a pleated valance, featuring a bird every six inches. I didn't use starch, and the pleats stayed crisp. This fabric would be lovely for curtains in a child's room, or pillow shams and a duvet cover.

This fabric is timeless. I feel like it would've fit perfectly in my elegant grandmother's home just as well as it would the Anthropologie catalogue. It's soft, flows, with just the right amount of whimsy. I love it!
