Florals and spots and a way to DIY it
I'm having a floral fabric moment, my second one of late. Did you know that florals and dots go together? I've seen it in three places on the interwebs this week, which qualifies as a full-on trend.
The Glamourai wore hers.
Jenny at Little Green Notebook and Naomi at Design Manifest mixed dalmation spots with Designer Guild's Orangerie fabric. Orangerie is fabulous, popular and, along with its cousins, about $100 a yard.
So, let's play a little game. Which fabrics are $100 a yard and which ones are $10 a yard?
OK, the first batch were all the fancy ones. All the rest are $10 quilter's fabrics, (except for the one Designer's Guild fabric I slipped into the last set. I'll let you keep guessing on that one.)
Yup, as I learned a few years ago, quilters have unbelievable choices in fabrics, more so than people who make dresses or people who make pillows. Take a look around for the detailed botanical prints of Philip Jacobs for Westminster Fabrics. (Martha Negley also has quite a few.)
As to the spots, those are easy. Togo by Premier Prints, which is less than $8 a yard.
Would you try this combo?
Would you pop for the real Orangerie?
