I believe that Reflections are the fabrics that are the most fun to make. I absolutely love making them and I need to plan a traditional quilt around them. I admit that I mostly design them for art quilters to use as nature elements like sky, water and land, but they will look great in traditional blocks as well. With my equipment I can only make 4 designs at a time which is really convenient for creating the display tile for publishing.
In this set I've created a blue with streaks of gray for a moody sky. The green could represent fields or, at a close level, reeds and blades of grass. There's another Reflections in the shop that's darker green with dark browns that this would work well with. The dark purple could be moon reflections on a midnight sea. The pink/orange was the most challenging for me. I'm somewhat hardwired toward dark fabrics so it takes a lot of discipline to make a super light fabric. I've done lots of fabrics in these colors but this time I finally succeeded in making a subtle sunset (or sunrise) fabric. I'm patting myself on the back for this one for simply sticking to my pre-dyeing notes for the first time ever.
I hope you enjoy these and that one will inspire a new project for you. If these don't meet your needs, check out all of the other Reflections.
Fabric of the week
I don't know what things are like where you are, but we have had one heck of a gray winter and this past week feels like nothing but clouds and rain. I need some sunshine and today I'm relying on fabric for those rays. Sun Rays Stash Pack is the fabric of the week and is 20% off through Sunday.
Stash Packs have 10 fat eights of fabric in a range of colors in the theme. Stash Packs are great for stash building. Yellow is a color that many people avoid but we all need a little of it from time to time. This stash pack is a great way to get a lot of little bits of yellow to enhance your fabric stash.
If you have sunshine where you are please send some to Virginia.

I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
