Aunt Grace - Gracie's Schoolhouse Classics
by Judy Rothermel for Marcus Brothers Fabric
Reproduction fabrics, more specifically 30's reproduction fabrics, continue be an obsession, and I love incorporating these into my quilts together with modern and contemporary fabrics.
Gracie's Schoolhouse Classics is exactly that, a collection of classic 30's small scale prints reproduced in colors associated with the 1930's pre-depression era; purple, pink, yellow, green, blue, red ~
These small scale designs are great for introducing reproduction fabrics into modern projects as you can readily assign a color to each - red, pink, lavender, minty 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.
