Show Us Your Stash: Red Pepper Quilts

Rita of Red Pepper Quilts shared a pretty varied assortment of fabrics on her blog, saying,

I really would like to make a quilt with fabrics that are designed by vastly different designers. I have gathered together some Amy Butler, Kaffe Fassett, and Valori Wells, but also some classic stripes, toile, Echino double gauze by Etsuko Furuya, and Mrs March 1930′s collection.

Some of these fabrics are way out of my comfort zone, and I am not even sure if they will all work well together. I am surely going to give it my best shot.

Check them out.

She says she’s just finished cutting the featured fabrics in the photos and will be sewing the quilt top over the next few days. Can’t wait to see how it turns out!

Thanks, Rita!

    This is exactly how I work! Right now I am mixing fabrics from my Vintage 50s collection, Fassett, VIP and some hand scrap applique. Cross your fingers! It’s great fun for my creativity — p.s. I also mix patterns to make my own unique designs …
