In last night’s post I explained that for our first line with Andover, Victorian Modern, we wanted to design a line of fabric with not just color stories but also value stories. We see a lot of fabrics we love that contain in one print very darks and very lights. These fabrics can be hard to work with if you want to create any depth in your quilt or any luminosity. So we decided to design prints that are easier for quilters to use in patterns that require lights and mediums. The next line will include some darks and more saturated colors as well.
The quilt shown is called Parlor Games and will be a free pattern on Andover’s site. We’ll be kitting Parlor Games as well. For those of you who have renewed your subscriptions to Modern Quilts Illustrated or who will look for it at your local quilt shop, there will be a project using Vic Mod in Issue #4 IF the mill in Korea gets us the sample yardage in time. As always, it’s a guessing game as to whether or not it will make our printing deadline to get magazines before Market.
