Laurie Wisbrun sent me some of her upcoming fabric line called Brrr... (it will be available in a couple of months) These are such fun fabrics, with a mix of polar bears and snowflakes and Scandinavian inspired flowers. Somehow these prints were just begging to be paired with black and white, so I added some black, white and grey prints, as well as a few solids.
The design was originally inspired by this tea towel. Although in the end it's really kind of different from the original design. I'd like to try this idea again. One thing I'd do differently next time is have the bottom row of triangles sitting right along the bottom.
I do like having some white triangles sprinkled in there though, which gives it a bit more of a random look, and the rows not all lining up... yup, i'll be visiting this one again!
Those big circles are perfect for the back of a quilt. So bold and fun! And I'll say it again, I think these prints work very well with black and white.
I do have a fat quarter bundle of this fabric to give away here one of these days, just want to show you a little something with the other colors yet first.
