That’s a big pear! … new Marimekko fabric

How great is this fabric? I ordered this online recently and it just arrived. It’s a Marimekko print – Päärynä – which maybe means “pear”… it sounds close anyway…

My thought was that it would make a great wall hanging – stretched over a canvas perhaps?

What you might not be able to tell is the size of the printed pear on this fabric. I suppose I should have included something in the photo to show the scale. Let me just say that the size is large. Very large. I was suprised when I opened it, imagining it in my head to be somewhat smaller. (Of course, the measurements were included when I ordered it, so it shouldn’t be a surprise…!)

I’m going to have to do some rearranging to find a big enough wall to hang it. And of course, I think I may have to custom build a frame of sorts to stretch it over. I can’t imagine Ben Franklins or Michaels selling a canvas this exact size…
