The Juxtaposition of the Positive/Negative

jill here...Hope you've had a chance to check out REPEATED and the fabric designing that has been taking place!  The designs are creative, inspiring and it's fun to read the feedback from the judges.  I appreciate the comments and find it interesting on what appeals to them.

 Wholesale quilt market is just a month away.  We have some new designs in preparation.  And sometimes its the fabric that does the talking.....Many of the new designs are the same print, presented in different values or colors.  Many of them will work perfectly for this pattern.

 You know we love the graphic blacks and whites as shown on the bolts below.

"Alligator Tales" from Red Rooster Fabrics

Strips of the black juxtaposed on the same white print.
Some of the little circles appear to cross over.
It's that fool the eye happenstance.

Value testing for just that right amount of color.....

Intersecting know we love transparency.
The perfect non directional background:
"Night and Day" by Skipping Stones Studio for Clothworks Fabrics.

Stay tuned for the reveal before market.  'Till next Tuesday....


  1. You two do wonders with geometrics! I have to chuckle - the snazzy "Night and Day" reminds me of very tired screening fabric in an old screen door ...

  2. Wow - thanks for the shout out with my black / white prints from Alligator Tales for Red Rooster!
