good folks

I have always loved Anna Maria Horner, but Good Folks captivated me like no other fabric ever has. There is just something about this line that is so majestic.


I don't know if it is the color, scale, print, balance, or some other fabric attribute, but it is just amazing.


I chose to do a Japanese x and + block after seeing the one made by the women of do. Good Stitches for their leader, Rachel. It was a great mash up of color but still accentuated the individual fabrics. Which is exactly what I hoped to do with my Good Folks fat quarters.


I think this quilt really is a testament to the beauty of the line itself.


I am thinking of putting 6 inch linen borders around it in a cream color to make it larger. For the back, I found an amazing deal on 3 yards of the Filigree print in green which will make up the center of the back, flanked by two strips of linen. My quilt model was very patient while I took way more pictures than necessary. :)



Now how to quilt it?!?

  1. Oh, I am such a fan of Good Folks, and your quilt shows it off beautifully. I think linen will look fabulous. I am actually planning to use linen to make a quilt with my Good Folks fabric, but I only have a small piece of each fabric so it won't be as bright and gorgeous as yours!
