Attic Treasures

Gorgeous Attic Treasures fabric by Red Rooster.  ($10.95/yard)

Attic Treasures
by Gerri Robinson of Planted Seed Designs was inspired by her love of classic home decor, interior design, and color. The focal fabric features beautiful roses fresh from the garden, delicate buds, yellow blossoms, and pale green leaves on a ground of creamy beige or soft blue. Like real roses, this style of floral print is a perennial favorite with quilt makers, wearable arts fans, accessory makers, and embellishers. The beige and blue colorways each have a coordinating wallpaper stripe that alternates with a smaller stripe bordered by strings of ivory and pink pearls. Several small floral coordinates in soft pinks, blues, and greens and a delightful dot in blue and green complete the collection.

Envision Attic Treasures in a traditional pinwheel or star quilt. A traditional log cabin quilt is another good choice. Try the soft red floral as the center square. Mix the little pink prints for the logs on one side of the block, and the blues and greens together on the opposite side. Use the large floral for the back and you’ll have a reversible beauty to adorn your bed. Complete the look with pillow shams, a striped bed skirt, a valance, and some pretty pillows.
