Sunday Stash – Doe by C. Friedlander

February 8, 2015

Have you gotten a close look at the textures of the Doe line, by Carolyn Friedlander? If not, this post is for you.  If you have, well then…. you have to admit, they’re worth seeing again.

As a longarmer, I’m not surprised that I love this fabric line, because longarmers are notorious for having an obsession with texture.  In fact, texture is the whole reason many of us quilt.

With these powerful but neutral graphic prints, Carolyn has nailed it again. They are fantastic mixers to use with other pops of color, but they also provide the most fantastic overall look. I swear, the combination of these textures stimulates the brain and challenges you to look twice to consider how the patterns interact, compliment and impact one another other.

And have you seen what my friend Melanie from Mel in the Attic has done with Doe? This is her Peek block, which I predict will take the quilt world by storm.  She’ll be releasing the pattern for it this Spring, and you can see her original Peek quilt in bold orange and white solids at QuiltCon in two weeks.  I can’t wait to see it in person.

I’ll end on my favorite picture. The beauty of an unused jelly roll.  There just so pretty, it’s hard to bust them open. But since I have, I’ll just hang onto this picture for posterity.

    Oh my gosh, you are too sweet. Thank you so much for including my block! I am also an unabashed Doe lover. I could look at these pictures all day.

    Doe is such a luscious line. It will be great to see what you make with it! 🙂 Mel’s block is awesome, and her Peek quilt is definitely one that I am excited to see in person at QuiltCon.

    I busted into my Architextures and have a mess on my hands. The pattern I was using isn’t turning out as I had hoped (or as it should), and I have to keep on going and finish, then figure out how to fix. It’s in indefinite WIP stage for now!

    I love this line! It reminds me of craftsman style architecture, need to get some.

    Doe and texture are one and the same. I just love that about this line… the main focus is texture. And boy, does it have it!! I love Mel’s Peek block, too, and her Doe versions are just fabulous!

    Wow, that peek block is gorgeous! I just went and checked out the original, and it is stunning as well. Thanks for sharing!

    This is one of my favorite lines ever, my husband was so kind as to get me a half yard bundle for xmas, I am admiring (and petting) it still and have not figured out what it is going to be used in.
