Have you seen the very talented and amazing Fabric Collections by Briar Hill Designs. Caverly and Julia are the duo behind this design team. Caverly is the artist and Julia is the quilt designer which makes for a perfect pairing. Bequest is their second range for RJR Fabrics which is shipping now. I am excited to be sharing with you today something I have made for the Makers Tour.
For all those Floral Lovers then you will just adore this range in all the Blue and Whites making such a complimentary colour palette to these fabrics. With large florals, small scale leaves along with geometric prints, this range has it all. The Watercolour styled designs make this range fresh all the while giving it that vintage country feel.
In the words of Julia and Caverly...
"A Bequest is something given or transmitted from the past. An heirloom. A legacy. An antique. We used these precious items as our inspiration behind these 20 blue and white prints. Each of the print names go along with our theme: ‘Hope Chest’, ‘Looking Glass’, ‘Loom’, ‘Music Box’, etc. We had such a blast naming them."
Deciding what to make will certainly be the hardest part. After lots of thought I decided to make one of my Confetti Cushions to showcase these stunning florals.
Getting to work on cutting out these fabrics and then piecing was great fun, taking in the bespoke nature of these prints. With such a beautifully co-ordinated colour palette all the hard work is done and all the the colours and prints just work so well together.
Bequest is hitting stores now, so you can get making in plenty of time for Christmas. You can follow along with all the Makers involved in the tour here:
