One of the things I am working on to prepare for Quilt Market is a new version of my Daisy quilt pattern. I want to make one with lots of bright colors from my stash of polka dots and Alison Glass. I started cutting last week, hoping to have the top done before we went on a planned trip for spring break.
These fabrics totally make me happy. While I was cutting and sewing, the thought kept going through my mind, "these colors are so bright, and so clashy, but so AWESOME!". I hope you all feel that way about...
I have said before that I love everything Alison Glass designs, fabric-wise. So I was naturally really excited about her latest and most-talked-about quilting fabric collection called Handcrafted for Andover Fabrics. *the text print above is also by Alison Glass, part of her 2013 collection "Sun Prints"*
Handcrafted is a collection of hand-stamped, batik style fabrics in saturated jewel tone colors. When you see these fabrics in person, you are struck by the richness of the color, but also by the simplicity of the prints. My first thought was to pair them with fabrics of texture.
Andover also makes a collection...
