Piece 2- The photo above and below show a few of the strike offs from my new line along with a John Hewson panel. I am very excited to see that the colors will work well together. My friend Bettina Havig gave me the panel and I had been saving it until I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I now have a pretty good idea and I can't wait until my fabric arrives! I think the blue bird print will work well also.
As for the panel, here is a bit of back story.
John Hewson was trained as a printer of calico in England. He emigrated to Philadelphia and opened a factory that produced calico in 1774. He was the first to do this in the Colonies. He was also highly renowned for the quality of his work. There are a handful of quilts that feature his prints surviving today. Andover fabrics along with The Winterthur museum have worked to reproduce some of these prints. The pictured panel is one of those reproductions.
You can see that the rusty reds and peachy pinks are a great match. Now to wait...
Happy Quilting, Dawn
