Fabric Friday Going to Market

49 comments
I'm putting fabrics together for my "Going to Market" quilt to take to Bryce Canyon for the retreat next week.As soon as I saw this quilt and knew Ricci was teaching it, I wanted to make this quilt. I love the flowers used in the sample pattern but I felt I should use fabric from my stash instead of buying new Kaffes. Even though I wanted to do that.
I did get a black stripe for the handles. I had this red dot so I decided to use it for the background. After deciding on the red dot it kind of set the tone for the rest of the quilt.
So I thought a black, red and white quilt would really be lovely. After all red is my signature color! I'm extremely excited to use all these red fabrics in this quilt and can't wait to get started.
Now my fabrics are packed and ready to go. It's getting exciting!

What a fantastic quilt, I can see why you would want to do this one at the retreat. Is the white/red polka dot a stash item. I bought some a few years ago at my lqs and can't seem to find the same one and now have a teeny tiny bit left. Really I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of the retreat and the things that are made there.

I LOVE those black stripes! They look so stunning with the beautiful reds. I'm holding my breath until you come back from the retreat to show us all of your fascinating projects :)

Any chance you'd have a moment to check the selvage of your black and white and tell me the info; name and maker? I have that pattern, and have wanted to make that quilt for THE LONGEST time. Your B/W stripe is perfectly perfect for the basket handles!! Have a wonderful time on your Retreat! Thanks~~
