I make reproduction style quilts in my non-existant free time and have a massive reproduction fabric habit. It fights for room with my embroidery supplied and wins. We use my quilts in the house on beds and backs of chairs. In piles and on walls (again fighting with the embroidery!). So last week when I was at Old Sturbridge Village in the textile storage viewing some samplers related to the Abby Cozzens sampler, I couldn't help being distracted by a pile of quilt fabric.
I was delighted to find out that the mesmerizing pile was the newest collection of reproduction fabrics designed by Julie Rothermel and Old Sturbridge Village off their collection of quilts for Marcus Fabrics. The large scale pattern was yummy and then the swirling stripes were an essential for my stash. The best part is that the licensing revenue on these pieces goes to the museum.
