For the Love of Fabric: Uppercase

Some fabrics just grab you. I subscribe to the Uppercase magazine, so I saw early last spring that Janine Vangool had designed a fabric collection for Windham. This news made me very excited! The colors and prints are so fresh and basic, I knew from the pictures that I would want this collection. It does not disappoint!

You know I love colorful fabric, but my favorites are basic tone-on-tone prints…so easy to mix and match for scrappy looks and great for piecing because the the pattern doesn’t interfere with the patchwork design.

When I thought about my stash, I immediately knew that the Uppercase fabrics would be perfect mixed with my Alison Glass sun print fabrics…the sun prints are also basic tonal prints, so combining them gives you a great assortment of color for depth and interest in a quilt.

My mom gave me this piece of wild red polka dots and I am loving the idea of this as a background, and the darker Uppercase prints as a dresden plates or fans (fabulous in my Twirling Fans pattern!). Wouldn’t this be a riot of color and pattern?

While I haven’t completely decided what to make with this beautiful stack, right now I am content to have it sit on my cutting table showing off its good looks. These colors and prints make me happy. There is so much potential in this bundle of color!

Happy Weekend,
