French quilt

0605 quilt

My current project, involving semi-reproductions of 19th century French prints. They are all from one range, but it's a tremendously varied collection in colour. That's a different approach to many of the very carefully co-ordinated ranges coming out now.

I've made a number of 'range' quilts for magazine projects, using only fabrics from one range. Sometimes from half yards, which gives you 40in options for strips/borders, and sometimes from fat quarters, which requires a different approach to borders. Either way, it's fun to make them work to showcase the fabric but not look too predictable.

These fabrics are Promenade II by Free Spirit Fabrics.
