Bunting on Words

A week ago last Friday was my last day printing in the studio at school. I thought it would be Thursday and shed a tear for the fabrics I hadn't had a chance to print, but a happy accident occurred among the administrative staff, and my commencement rehearsal was actually at eleven instead of the previously stated nine! I woke up early, grabbed my last breakfast at Saga, and made a beeline for Adams Hall to print my last Wheaton fabric. And I'm so excited about it!




The words alone are cute and so is the bunting, but the bunting and words together have a new life to them. It's subtle but fun and fills the field nicely. I feel it would be a lovely backing to a baby quilt or an adorable square on the front, and I haven't decided yet if I should print more or what project they should become. What would you make with this fabric?



Yep, I did say that: print more. I may or may not have borrowed a couple of screens from the school so that I could print this week if I so chose. I'll be driving right back to Wheaton next week for a dear friend's wedding and will return the screens then. But until then, I am off to print!


The designs are printed on Pat Bravo solid Icy Mint and Robert Kaufman solid Ice Peach.

  1. I would hoard them and feel guilty, but they are so pretty they need to be used. They defiantly need open space to embrace the whole beauty of the print. You should sell some of your prints ... I want some!

    1. I'm in the process of reading books and setting up a business plan for opening up my own online shop this summer. I can't decide yet what I'll be selling--fabric panels, quilts--but fabric designs are definitely working their way to the top! Thank you :)

  2. The colours and the combination of bunting and odds is sumptuous. No wonder you plan to print more - so delightful! So soft and pretty yet contemporary.

    1. You just had me runnin around to find scraps with labels on them and packing slips and almost had be convinced it was a Pat Bravo fabric instead haha. But it is Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton Ice Peach. (I did have the name slightly backwards.)

    2. They both look great together, although I generally find Art Gallery fabrics softer and finer than Kona - do you find this too?

    3. Oh definitely, yes. Robert Kaufman Kona is really not my favorite solid. Pat Bravo and Michael Miller are much softer and finer and therefore much more enjoyable to work with :)

  4. This fabric is extra cute with the bunting printed on it! I agree it would be a darling backing for a baby quilt or maybe even for napkins/other decor for an adorable baby shower. Also, I love that paint speckled ladder. Perfect photo shoot prop! :)
