Last week my dyeing inspiration came from the beautiful landscapes around me this summer. That always leads me to making more Reflections fabrics pulling colors from the scenery around me. These fabrics are great for landscape quilts but the stripy nature of the pattern also makes a great borders and sashing for traditional quilts. There are lots to choose from if these 4 don't really speak to you.
Reflections are sold by the yard and the stripes go across the width of the fabric.
My summer vacation is going to be a really long one this year so I want to give you notice now in case you need something dyed for your next project. We have plenty of time to get it done if we start planning now. I will be away August 6 - September 5 so the shop will basically be closed the entire month of August. If there's fabric that you need please get your orders in by the end of July. The cut off for custom dyed fabric will be July 26.
Fabric of the Week
Keeping with the water and sky theme, I've selected South Pacific as the fabric of the week. The blue-greens of this gradient are perfect to represent tropical waters. Gradients are also great for borders. The provide complex color transitions with very little work. South Pacific is 20% off through Sunday.
