Crossroads to Texas, I feel like I have been waiting forever for this fabric line!!!! One of the best reproduction fabric lines to come out in a long time in mho. I love the madders and these greens are to die for, two of them are just so unique I need yards of them! The two pinks in this line are a must have in my collection, yes a few yards of those two as well...The cheater cloth of course I want a bolt, won't that be a great backing? I plan on making a little quilt from it and have another Idea I have wanted to play with too, for that you will have to stay tuned to see what I do with it!
As soon as I saw this antique quilts of Betsy's I new I would want to reproduce it I was so happy when she told me she was writing a book and the pattern would be in the book Gone to Texas. A must have book if you like reproducing antique quilts and /or just making old looking quilts!
I have been collecting madders ever since! Now having the madders that are in the original quilt will make this quilt even more special to me. This fabric line is mostly reproduced from this antique quilt she owns you can see pictures of it in her book. The cheater cloth was made using parts of that antique quilt. (or maybe its all from this antique quilt I will ask her again)
I love stripes like this for bindings cut on the bias , that way you get the diagonal look on the binding don't you?
So tell me what do you think of this fabric line????
What would you make with this fabric line????
I will send a 6 1/2" charm pack to one of you who tell me what they like about the fabric line and how they would use it
Yes it is now available finally.
I preordered it of course here and you can also get it now at the shop where Betsy works. or hopefully your local quilt shop!
I know I need to order more of it now that I have seen it in person.
I was lucky enough for Betsy to send me a fat quarter bundle of this line, Thanks Betsy! I just couldn't cut into until I knew I could get more, I know, I know how silly is that? This week I will whip up a little quilt or two with these fabrics, can you tell how excited I am about this fabric line?????
