You ready for another day of fabric picks? Want to see something that is my dirty little secret love? Ok....here you go....
Today's colour is country red (17)
And this is my dirty little secret - I LOVE the repros that co-ordinate with this colour.
French General fabrics get me every single time. I can't resist them. I made a quilt for the first issue of Fat Quarterly using Rouenneries and I have a La Petite Ecole quilt in progress. By the time you read this I'm hoping to have snapped up some French General treats at sample spree.
So, the solids here are la petite ecole dark denim, buttercup bluebell solid and primitive muslin in paper bag. Then for the prints I chose Alice's wash day blues in khaki (blue hill fabrics), la petite ecole stone cahrer and la petite ecole red on stone dots.
Love love love these - I can see super traditional sawtooth stars, or log cabins with fiery red centres. Or for mixing it up and putting that 'modern' spin - fussy cutting little motifs from the la petite ecole cahrer and using those for the centres of blocks.
