Fabric Friday Choloe's Closet 1933 plus extras

28 comments
I'm trading my quilter Wendy by making a quilt top in exchange for machine quilting.Here is a little peek at my quilt, "Freda's Flowers". This is the quilt I'll be making for Wendy.
"Freda's Flowers" is jelly roll "friendly" so Wendy chose Chloe's Closet 1933 for her fabric. However, the jelly roll doesn't have enough greens or lights to make 30 blocks. So I'm supplementing them with my stash and I hope fabrics I pick compliment/match well enough for Wendy's quilt top.
These are the lights from the jelly roll. They are pretty busy so I hope they work out.
These are the lights from my stash that I'll use to supplement the jelly roll.
These medium and dark value strips from the jelly roll will work great. I won't need to supplement from my stash when using these.
The 1933 darks will be perfect for the flowers. Again, I don't need to supplement here either.
These are the greens in the jelly roll and there aren't nearly enough of these.
So I hope my greens above go okay. Ugh. That is a terrible representation of the green. They look rather sick in this photo. It is the greens I'm less confident about. I may have to cut more.

I really do like this 1933 line and I had several prints from the group in my stash. I just hope Wendy likes her flimsy when I'm done.

That is an ADORABLE quilt that you are making for Wendy. I am sure that she will love it!
I love all of the fabrics that you are using, but you know me and my love of the 30's.
Can't wait to see the quilt when you get it done!

Those are the fabrics I'm liking a lot right now, not that particular line, but the 1930's repros. The are just so happy, and that's what your quilts are. She will love it!

I'm going off to a retreat this weekend and taking all my 30's fabrics. Planning some serious quilting fun! I like all the greens you chose except the one with the bottle and the large green and white polka dot. I have a large Dresden plate "flimsy" that my mother in law made in 1933 and there is nothing similar to those in the top. The stripe is a "maybe". I think the rest will blend in very well. You didn't ask for advice but I know you don't mind my thoughts so decided to give you my "2cents worth". :-)

What a great trade.
I have been seeing the butterflies and like you I'm thinking of joining in the fun. Don't tell my mom. She always told me that if everyone else was doing it it was sure to mean trouble.

I love the fabric, bartering makes quilting that much more exciting!

Jen in NY said...

Ooh, fun! Greens are tough, aren't they? I don't know, I feel like there are so many shades and I never have the right one. Anyhoo, I love the fabrics, all of them!

Nedra said...

That cute quilt pattern will look sweet made with 30's fabrics. I think both of you are making a wise barter with this one.

I love your fabric choices....and your adorable pattern. Wendy's quilt will have your "signiture look" to it because of them.
Don't you just love trade-sies?
No money changing hands, just time and love.
