Inspired by a photo I saw on Kathie’s blog (inspiredbyantiquequilts.blogspot.com), I’m hosting a little holiday giveaway of one-yard of a wonderful turkey red fabric that was produced by Yuwa fabrics. Seeing her post about the antique turkey red fabric owned by Judy Roche reminded me that I had an entire bolt of a similar fabric that I purchased a year or so ago.
It was designed for Yuwa fabrics by Julie Wallace from Australia (quilters-barn.com). For us in the US, however, you probably haven’t seen this fabric. Printed on finely woven greige goods, it’s as silky as a lawn. Wonderful.
I’ve been holding onto the fabric with the thought of hosting a little challenge between my friends and myself. My thought was to challenge others to make a Welsh-style quilt…using the book Making Welsh Quilts as our inspiration. This book was written by my friend Mary Jenkins and her co-author Clair Claridge, and is something you should track down if you don’t already have it in your library. It has so many great ideas for traditional Welsh quilting motifs that it’s well worth the effort of finding it.
So, in order to throw your hat in the ring for this piece of beautiful Yuwa fabric, all you really need to do is leave a comment on this post by the end of the day on December 27th. Sometime after that I’ll pick a number randomly and mail it out. So, what could be easier?
Hope you’re all having a terrific holiday.
