Handcrafted by Alison Glass was released late last year and was followed more recently by a second and collection - Handcrafted 2 - which represents a continuation of an overall look that is unique.

Both collections are made entirely by hand (a process unique to Andover) and are a new interpretation of the ancient wax resist fabric dying art form (batik). It is made in Indonesia by people skilled with this technique. Many hands have gone into the making of this hand stamped and hand dyed cloth, and it is beautiful. The fabric is a slightly lighter than quilting cotton, and although technically there is a a right side, they are reversible.

Admittedly these two collections will push me to think and work outside of my comfort zone, and it has taken some time to add these to my stash. However the bright, modern colors, and clever interpretation of a style of fabrics that I would otherwise avoid has completely drawn me in. I am looking forward to working with these designs.

  6. I bought a FQ set of Handcrafted recently and have been pondering how to use them -- all together or mixed with other stuff from the stash -- can't wait to see what clever ideas you come up with!

  7. I have admired these fabrics a lot lately, but have held off buying any because I'm not sure how I would use them either! So I'll look forward to seeing what you do.

  9. I'm currently using one of these as a backing for a quilt I'm hand quilting. Combined with the wool batting I'm using, the lightness of these fabrics is soo nice (and easy) to quilt.
