Happy Friday everyone, and welcome to my stop on the "Late for a Date" blog hop. The blog hop is featuring the Wonderland fabrics designed by Josephine Kimberling for Blend Fabrics (you can see more of the fabrics here.)
You know, my one and only experience with Alice in Wonderland is the old Disney cartoon from waaay back in uh, like 1951. Oh, and I've ridden the (slightly strange) Alice in Wonderland ride at Disneyland. I think maybe it's time I get around to reading the book, do you? Have you read the book? I'm hoping it's better than the movie.
When I first designed this quilt, I imagined it with a white background. But the Wonderland fabrics just didn't "pop" enough. So I next tried a solid black and got the result I wanted. I always find it interesting to see how a quilt changes just with a change of background. So if you're working on a quilt and you just don't love it, try swapping out the background for another color, or maybe for a print (like swiss dots, or a linen-look print).
Giveaway now closed - thank you!
There's only one more week left on the blog hop! You can find links to the past posts and projects below. And you can find the Wonderland fabrics here at the Fat Quarter Shop very soon!
