Sunday Stash – Wild and Free by Maureen Cracknell

March 1, 2015

A couple of weeks ago, I picked up a bundle of Maureen Cracknell’s Wild and Free. (By the way, there’s a good giveaway for an entire fat quarter bundle of Hello Bear! on her blog that runs through Monday, March 2nd).

I bought the bundle entirely based on this quilt by Jodi at Tales of Cloth. She calls the pattern Mountain Campfire, and she’s hoping to write it up and release it later this year.

Here are some close-ups of the fabric that make up this line.

They are graphic and rich, and I can’t wait to use them.  Jodi added a beautiful aqua print to her quilt, which I think adds an enormous amount of interest to the interplay of colors.  I’d love to make my own pattern with these fabrics, but right now, I have Jodi’s pattern stuck in my head!  (Does that ever happen to you?)

However, I did pin this picture on Pinterest a long time ago.  I think it may have been from an Anthropologie catalogue, but as the link doesn’t work anymore, I’m not sure.  I think it’s great inspiration for using this fabric.  It might be just what I need to get creative with Wild and Free.

    LOVE this line. I need to get these prints into EQ7 and decide if they’re right for a pattern I have been trying to find time to write. My gut says the theme of the line is perfect but I don’t know if the prints are the right scale. I love your inspiration pic, it’s perfect for this line!
