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.
I’m linking up with Molli Sparkles for Sunday Stash. Can’t wait to see some gorgeous fabric over there!
