I was contacted by the woman I made the Out of the Woods quilt for a few weeks ago, and she has commissioned me to make several more items for her (a repeat customer – yay!). I made 32 bandanas for her, and I will be working on an oversized baby quilt for her using these fabrics:
Left to Right: Joel Dewberry Bungalow Swallow Study Emerald, Joel Dewberry Fabric Aviary 2 Sparrows Vintage Yellow, Tula Pink Bumble Cotton Candy Cloud Jade, Robert Kaufman Urban Zoology Mini Birds Bermuda, Joel Dewberry Aviary 2 Woodgrain Bark Brown
The goal was to find a cohesive green, yellow, cream/brown grouping of fabrics with a bird theme. I personally love how the Tula Pink Bumble print also has hot air balloons and airplanes.
The plan is to use Elizabeth Hartman’s New Wave pattern with the brown Woodgrain print as the sashing and binding and the Swallow Study in Emerald as one of the prints for the front as well as the backing.
I believe I have mentioned several times that my mother-in-law occasionally supplies me with fabric. She lives in a large metropolitan city, and she goes to yard and estate sales every weekend. When she comes across fabric for a good deal, she buys it for me and then lets me pick through her finds on my next visit.
These are the fabric that I chose to bring home last weekend. I really love the African animal scene and plan to use that print for the back of a baby quilt.
Everything else just seemed like it
could be absorbed by my stash would compliment my existing stash. 🙂
