Backing up my assertion that cheater prints are back. And why shouldn’t they be? You get more prints for the money, and if you actually turn it into a quilt, no one will really think you’re a cheater. The Japanese have cornered the cheater print market lately, but I’d say the revival was really kicked off by Denyse Schmidt’s Patchwork Promenade print.
From the top: Kokka cheater print (taken by me at the Fall 2008 Quilt Market); newer Kokka cheater print spotted on Fabricworm; Echino ni-co patchwork by Etsuko Furuya; reproduction cowboy cheater print spotted at This and That From Japan; cheater print from Jennifer Paganelli’s newest collection Dance With Me; the popular Patchwork Promenade print from Denyse Schmidt’s line County Fair, done up in a beautiful blanket by Spool Sewing.
What have I missed in this mini-roundup? What are your favorites?
