Some fabrics are just so pretty that I can't bear to cut into them without properly photographing them first. That is definitely the case with Briar Rose, the latest line from Heather Ross. In case you haven't noticed, I am a big fan of her work. I even went to sew with her and Denyse in Vermont a few years back! Best weekend ever. Anyways, I purchased this lovely stack of Briar Rose the week it came out. My favorites are the ones in that bottom photo: the strawberries, honeycomb, and then that pretty red/orange one.
I don't always have a plan for the fabrics that I buy, but I totally did with these ones. Remember the On a Whim quilt I made last summer? It was a gift for a friend, and I've wanted to make it again ever since. I adore that pattern, which is by Camille Roskelley. I think that it is the perfect way to display special fabrics like these. This time around I used Essex yarn dyed linen in flax and Kona PFD white along with Briar Rose.
An impromptu quilt along was formed over on Instagram after Camille decided to make a matching Briar Rose On a Whim quilt, too! It is so fun! I love seeing all of the different versions. If you are on IG, you can see them all under #onawhimquilt, and I'm @fussycut if you haven't found me there yet. Come join us! xo, A
