I've been bitten by the Zakka bug. I got this fabric just for Zakka paper piecing. Zakka is a Japanese word for many small objects that make your home feel like a home. The 2 Zakka books I have use muted tones. Since I never buy muted tones, I had to go shopping for some. I made the fabric clerk work hard cutting 1/4 of a yard of most of these and 1 to 3 yards from some of them.
