Charleston by Revive - Blog Tour
Welcome Blog Hoppers! Timeless Treasures has a neat new division that is breathing new life into the textile designs of our past, called Revive. Their debut collection is inspired by all the sass and geometry of the lively Art Deco era. When I studied architecture my favorite time period was the 1920's and 1930's, so this line really is a knockout for me! It was a time of bold colors, lavish ornamentation and fabulous flapper dresses. All these characteristics and more are reflected in a new fabric line named Charleston. The line has a great mix of small and large prints, bold and subtle colors, geometric patterns and large florals.
Now let's show you how that fabric looks in some quilts! We didn't have time to get anything sewn, but we mocked up some digital quilts that show how versatile this fabric line is. I was originally a little worried about incorporating this line into some of our more modern quilt patterns, but boy was I wrong! Here are few of my favorite designs:
We mocked up our Lexington Lane quilt with both color ways of Charleston and used Hatch-Night for the backgrounds. The first color combo contains more gold and navy with a pop of red and the second is a beautiful mix of blues, reds and beiges.
Next up, I mocked up our Prism Parkway pattern with the Charleston line. I loved the little bits of gold/cheddar in the line and wanted to try it as a background. I think it is pretty fun! I was a little unsure about cutting the large prints into these smaller pieces but I think they add some great texture!
With that in mind, I mocked up our Diamond Alley quilt pattern next. This one has large pieces that allow the fabric to shine and a modern kick that plays nicely with this sophisticated yet sassy line. There are two Diamond Alley quilts. The first contains the gold and navy color way and uses the red "pop" as the background. The second features the blues, reds and beiges on the Night Hatch.
I couldn't stop thinking about how beautiful an Arcadia Avenue 3D hexagon pillow would have looked with these prints, so I mocked up two versions of our Blooming block. I love how these look and will definitely make a few if I get my hands on some of this fabric!
