Do you have any fabric that is too pretty to cut?
I’ve got this 1 1/2 yard piece of fabric that I love. I’ve been saving it to make a quilt for my (almost) 5-year old daughter. She’s a big fan of purple and pink, so I think she will like this fabric.
It’s from the Just Wing It collection by MoMo, one of my favorite designers.
It features a large scale design of butterflies, trees, and flowers. Cutting it into smaller pieces would mean that I’d lose some of the design. So instead of cutting it, I’m going to use it whole.
I did the same thing with a piece from the It’s a Hoot collection, also by MoMo, when I made Bird Park.
Again, the large scale design would have been lost by cutting it so I kept it whole.
I’m still deciding what I’ll do with the borders for the Just Wing It piece. Whatever I decide, I want to keep it simple so as not to distract from the center.
What do you do with large scale prints?
