Recently I purchased this Free Spirit Quilters Linen. At 54" wide it is a pretty good value and it comes in some pretty interesting colors. I purchased the gray above. But it really looks more tan with a undertone of green. Hmm. Not exactly what I thought it would look like. And I left in the wrinkles so you can see that a downside of a linen blend is that it wrinkles. The nice part about a quilter's linen is the weight is more like you'd find with a quilt grade cotton - not so thick.
I also recently purchased small quantities of sale fabric. Shops both online and in town are cutting prices to get ready for fall fabrics and Quilt Market is just around the corner, too. Above is a cute little yellow with blue flowers.
These two fabrics above are wallpaper prints from Peacock Lane. I really like them. I took the photos of the sale fabric against the gray quilter's linen. I like how it looks.
I took this photo of 2 of my finished mosaic blocks against the quilter's linen. I think it really looks great with the green in the Denyse fabric. And in fact, a true gray color wouldn't work as well, I think. So for today, I think I just might use this quilter's linen as sashing for the new mosaic quilt. We'll see for sure as things progress.
