It's ultra soft. I love the crinkle of well washed cotton.
It feels so lived-in and cozy.
These quilts, and others like them, were the inspiration for my newest fabric collection, called Antique Cotton, for Marcus Fabrics. The prints I chose are small, little calicoes and shirtings I found in many of my antique quilts. The big quilt I am making from this collection were inspired by these quilts without focal borders. The prints, and the block and quilt design are the focus!
There are prints in seven colors and a wide variety of shirtings. I had a lot of fun playing with the colors in the shirtings, and matching them with different combinations of the darker prints.
It's a great mix and match line, and will certain be fun to add to your stash and scrap quilts.
My sample yardage is on its way, so I took photos (and you know me, can't take a good photo to save my life, so I'm sorry they're not better!) of the strike-offs I have. Fear not!! Click here to see the entire Antique Cotton collection. Here are the prints....
