Calico


Recently, Barbara Brackman published an article on her MATERIAL CULTURE blog entitled LANCASTER COUNTY'S UNUSUAL SAMPLERS.  It caught my eye because I've always been partial to bright calico fabrics.  Ahem: seems that I have quite a collection of them in my stash :)  Here are just some of the reds, yellows, greens and pinks.  There are more where these came from, and also cheddars, blues, purples ... 


Anyway, since I don't currently have any "need to get done by a certain deadline" projects in my workroom, I've decided to putter with some pieced calico blocks and see where I end up.  Just doing my own thing, inspired by some of the antique quilts that share this style and color combo.

I have a small collection -- mostly red and yellow, heavy on the Quaker Reds that came out about 4 years ago. I'm missing pinks and blues altogether, may have some greens. Now I know why I've never tackled one of these quilts because the pinks and blues are what make them special. Time to shop.

Cute quilt! I don't collect any particular type of fabric, just whatever I happen to like at the moment.
