Sunday Stash #343 Feedsack by Whistler Studios

Feedsack by Whistler Studios
for Windham Fabrics

Feedsack is the most recent collection by Whistler Studios for Windham Fabrics. Reproduction fabrics, more specifically 30's reproduction fabric, continue be a fabric stash favorite and I love incorporating these prints into my quilts together with modern and contemporary fabrics. These are wonderful ~

The collection features a range of traditional floral and ditzy (small scale) prints in colors typically associated with that era ~ six designs, each in up to four different colorways. These small scale designs are great for introducing reproduction fabrics into modern projects as you can readily assign a color to each - red, yellow, green and blue (above). You can then color co-ordinate your fabric selection, mixing and balancing the color palette of your project as you go irrespective of whether the fabric you have chosen for your project is a modern designer fabric or a reproduction fabric.

A Color Splash Quilt - The Finished Quilt

A Color Splash Quilt | Red Pepper Quilts 2016

I am so in love with these bright colors! This quilt has turned out great and it has made my day to be able to share a whole lot of photos with you here. I so wish you could see (and touch) the actual quilt for when you reduce the a quilt to a 10 inch square - or smaller still when viewing on a device - I do think that the impact is not the same, and I repeatedly hear from my customers that the actual quilt is even better than the photos! That's always nice to hear.

I think you may already know how much I love the fabrics that I have used to make this quilt. Many are from my stash of Japanese import fabrics by popular Japanese designers like Suzuko Koseki and Atsuko Matsuyuama, but also included are prints by Cotton + Steel and stash basics like dots, stripes, gingham, and small scale prints in a range of bold colors.

A Color Splash Quilt - Work in Progress

Color Splash Quilt | Work in Progress | Red Pepper Quilts 2016

It is Winter down under and it has been cold in Melbourne for the last few weeks! We even had a small chance of light snow earlier this week (which is most unusual), but I am thankful that snow did not eventuate. Dark and gloomy days however do call for an injection of color, and that is what this week's project has been all about. Color. Color. Color. And of course simple patchwork.

It is no secret that I have a decent size fabric stash - although I suspect I am not alone in this - and a significant part of that stash is a variety of Japanese fabrics that I have collected over a period of time. My collection of Japanese fabrics includes those by popular Japanese designers like Suzuko Koseki and Atsuko Matsuyama, and from Japanese fabric houses including Yuwa Fabrics and Lecien Fabrics.

For this quilt I have pulled out my favorite Japanese prints and combined them with fabric stash basics (dots, checks, stripes, gingham) and designer quilting cottons.The quilt design is simple: patchwork squares and quarter Log Cabin blocks (quarter Log Cabin Blocks have either one or two "rounds" of logs). The layout of the different units is random.

I love how the quilt turned out! It is exactly how I imagined it when I set out to create a quilt with a splash of color. What's more this week the photos seemed to roll of the camera effortlessly, hence the many photos ... and there is a lot to see. Enjoy!
