Marimekko Futon

This first futon was made from fabric designed by the exquisite  Marimekko.

I have to admit that while I always liked Marimekko design, I didn't truly appreciate it until sewing this futon. My mother-in-law (a fellow fabric addict) had given me the fabric years ago and it had been stored in my closet patiently waiting for a home.

The quality of the fabric is tactile in its vibrant color and density - the yardage is from 1962 and looks as though it was woven yesterday.
