One of the most fun aspects of working on Modern Patchwork magazine is poring over all the contemporary fabric collections we review. Collections are released throughout the year, but spring is an especially inspiring time to shop for new fabrics.
|"Shelburne Falls" designed by
Denyse Schmidt for Free Spirit
This spring, we noticed a preponderance of orange-and-blue combinations. In prints, the 1950s-'60s kitchen has inspired many fabric designers, with starburst clocks, angular coffee makers, and abstract shapes reminscent of hand stamping used as motifs.
Chickens are still popular, but llamas have also come on the scene. Typography, numerals, and graphic elements with letters and numbers on them (like tickets and labels) make prints interesting to look at.
Most of these fabrics could stand on their own as frame-able art. But they are meant to be cut and stitched into modern quilts and patchwork projects like the ones in the pages of Modern Patchwork Spring 2013.
|"Modern Home" from Monaluna|
To get you started, we're giving away two packages of fabric we reviewed in Modern Patchwork: A roll of "Shelburne Falls" designed by Denyse Schmidt for Free Spirit and a stack of "Modern Home" from Monaluna.
Just leave a comment saying what you might do with these fabrics and we'll randomly choose two winners on Monday, April 22, 2013.
Also, be sure to submit your original project ideas for Modern Patchwork Winter 2013. The deadline is May 13! Get all the details on our Submissions page.
