Today a continuation of last week's Sunday Stash post featuring more of the recently released Cotton + Steel Collections, starting this week with beautiful Bluebird ~

Bluebird - Cotton + Steel 2015  | Red Pepper Quilts

Bluebird is a 23 piece collaborative collection by the Cotton + Steel designers. It forms a spectrum from warm and intentionally aged indigo fabrics, to bright classic cobalt, and strong white contrast fabrics. You may note that several of these fabrics were used in my Carkai Half Square Triangle Quilt.

The Bluebird collection was inspired by a group of vintage Japanese fabrics that had aged and naturally discolored over a period of time. As such included are two prints - designed for piecing only, and perhaps not suitable for dresses and garments - complete with watermarks and discoloration to add richness and depth to Bluebird quilts.

Next up is Fruit Dots by Melody Miller inspired by a perfect flea market find, a box of vintage brightly colored 1960's blocked fruit ~

Fruit Dots features cute pop art style fruit, stripe gum wrappers, friends and other cute elements in funky bright colors. In keeping with Melody Miller's signature style this collection also features portraits of retro ladies, fun floral and dot match ups, and cute pop art style designs.

  2. Yikes! So pretty, Rita. I love the blues too.
    The adorable perky fabrics from Melody Miller are also very attractive.
    Happy Sunday.
    The Christmas celebrations and all of the holiday gatherings and festivities are over. I am rather looking forward to getting back to the hum drum for a while.
    Here is US, I noticed the stores already have their shelves stocked with Valentines clutter. Hil-arious!

  3. C&S hasn't really appealed to me yet - although one B&W grouping was totally my thing, but I like Bluebird! Will have to watch for this one. Sadly, the Cdn $ is terribly weak presently, so no online shopping right now. :-(
