I adore the idea of repurposing men’s shirts into the women’s history of quilt making. I also love using soft colors to make a subtle, comforting low volume quilt. This collection, Modern Shirtings, is taking that idea of low volume prints and making colorful, light patterns for comfort-food kind of quilts. Those are the quilts you want to snuggle up with, be wrapped up in, and have a good book to read all day! I was raised in a 50’s car- & music-loving family, so incorporating classic 50’s slang into the prints was a trip down memory lane! ‘Wing Tips’, ‘Swell’ and ‘No Dice’ are a real ‘Blast!’ ‘Off the Line’ is a real ‘Keeper’ and it will make you ‘Burst!’ And if you need to ‘Cut a Rug’ in a ‘Straw House’ then you are good to go! It was fun playing with different scale prints with a bit of color. Use them all together as a classic shirtings quilt. Mix with solids or incorporate with your favorite “Night Fancy” prints! Just enough color to tie together any prints to make the best cozy quilt ever!
