Traditions Fabric Palette
Fabric Palette for July 5 - September 4
I know we are in the middle of summer holidays but lately I've been thinking about Christmas and my desire to make a Christmas quilt. It's been 2 years since I created a holiday themed palette. That one, Geranium, was based on a bright red and green. This time I wanted something more vintage looking. I want to create a quilt that looks like it's been in the family for a long time and is a Christmas tradition. That's why the name of this new palette is "Traditions".
I spent weeks creating over a dozen new red recipes until I got this soft Cranberry color. With it I've added a forest green, soft gold, gray and light tan for backgrounds.
This palette has 4 new color gradients and 4 different color value packs.
Throughout the month, on Thursdays, I will share some Electric Quilt images and other projects using this palette. Now you can design with the palette too! I have an EQ7 file with the Traditions fabrics and you can get it here. There's one quilt in it that shows how I do the borders with the cradient fabrics. The gradients are stored as images.
Details about the Palette of the Month. Each of the palette fabrics are available for a special price of $15/yard (below the normal $18/yard price for my hand dyed fabrics). You can purchase any mix of colors and any amount of fabric in 1/4 yard increments. The minimum total order is 1 yard but that can be in 4 fat quarters. 1/4 yard orders will be made as fat quarters unless otherwise specified.
All fabrics are dyed when ordered so please allow 2 weeks for delivery. Most orders will be turned around in a few days. The fabrics can be found in the Specials section of my shop. I have limited options in the shop for you to order directly but you can order any combination of the fabrics. Just Email me with your request and I will create a custom invoice for you.
Shipping will be USPS Flat Rate Envelope for all US orders and USPS Flat Rate International for international orders up to 8 yards.
Let's get to the fabrics! You can get ordering information here.
All of the fabrics in this palettes are soft and vintage looking and I've created a Stash Pack with a good variety of the fabrics. Like other Stash Packs, this one contains 10 fat eights of fabric. It's a great way to get a small selection of the palette fabrics.
If you want larger cuts just order 2 stash packs for fat quarters, 4 for half yards, etc. I will custom dye a st of fabric for you in the larger cuts.
