|Primitive Threads quilt ~ Designed by Pam Buda for Heartspun Quilts|
and Marcus Brothers fabrics.
Introducing my Primitive Threads quilt!
Boy...this feels so good!! I tell ya....working in secret is hard sometimes, so when it's finally time to share....I can hardly contain myself!
This quilt features the entire Primitive Threads fabric collection (for Marcus Fabrics) and uses a black print as the neutral background. I designed two taupe fabrics that I used in the pieced border of the quilt and another I used in all of the blocks. (I have plans for even more quilts using these taupe fabrics. I'm so in a taupe mood these days!)
When choosing fabrics for a primitive collection, I knew I wanted darker, muted colors....prints that had a folk art feel to them, and absolutely had to have some stars! What's primitive without stars?? I also wanted the prints to fit in nicely with other historic prints. So....let's take a look at some of the Primitive Threads fabrics and the antique fabrics that inspired them.
Folk Art Flower.
Folk Art Garden.
Any guesses how old the potholder quilt pieces are??
I'll show you more Primitive Threads fabrics and their antique fabric inspirations in my next post. Hope you like what you see so far.
Primitive Threads fabrics should be arriving to your local quilt shop in April....so please....be sure to ask for them there. It's so very important that we support our quilt shops!!
Better get to work on the new things I'm dreaming up for your stitching pleasure. Be well....
