|Primitive Threads quilt and fabrics designed by Pam Buda ~ Heartspun Quilts |
for Marcus Brothers Fabrics
Star Flower Toss.
Starry Skies. (Another print I would have dearly love in every color!)
Picotage Petals. (Picotage is the name for all the tiny, fine dots you see in the leaves and stems, and is a common design element in vintage fabric.)
Primitive Threads was just the right collection for it! This print is called Primitive Linen. Produced in two versions of beige background, it gives just the softest crinkle-y vintage look to patchwork.....oh so yummy!!! I wanted a fabric that would give patchwork a wonderful aged feel. The crinkle pattern is so subtle, and yet the fabric does not look flat like a solid or muslin would. Playing with it in sample blocks.... it made the other fabrics in the block look even better! I am so happy to finally have Primitive Linen - I'm doing a dance of JOY on the front lawn. (Well...not really because it wouldn't be pretty. Just sayin'!)
I hope you have enjoyed seeing a little of the fabric design process in these two posts about Primitive Threads and you like what you see!! My sample fabrics will arrive soon and I'll post some sewing progress while making the quilt. Watch Facebook and Instagram for some photos, too.
Primitive Threads should arrive at your LQS in April!! Click here to see all of the Primitive Threads fabrics.
Counting the days until Spring arrives!! Be well.....stitch happy.
