'Stoneflowers in Turtledove and HB' - a delightful name for a wonderfully unique print, one of my favourite from the Australian textiles house, Umbrella Prints.
Specialising in organic printed fabrics, Umbrella Prints offers an exciting range of distinctive designs. This is the 6th year of their annual Umbrella Prints Trimmings Challenge. I purchased their 'Flowers' trimmings pack (above), a great way to sample these fabrics with the opportunity to participate in the design challenge.
Yesterday I added the last stitches to this playful, small quilt which I have been busily working on over the last week since completing my larger Butterfly Kisses quilt. Time to share some details of this little surprise quilt. If you hover over each image below the name of the prints used will appear.
These Umbrella Print fabrics have been a delight to work with. They are a pleasant weight and all organic, the designs and colours are refreshing. In keeping with the Trimmings theme I have utilised many of my organic fabric offcuts, selvedges and leftovers from recent projects, resulting in a mix of sizes and slightly wonky fabric pieces (Cirrus solids by Cloud 9). It really was a fun project.
All fabrics, batting and thread used are organic. The binding is organic Alchemy by Amy Buttler - a perfect edging for this quilt which I have named 'Framed' as each Umbrella Prints Trimming print has been highlighted by either fabric or quilted 'frames'.
