circa 1825 Fabric

I love this new line of reproduction fabrics from In The Beginning Fabrics:  Circa 1825

I first saw the artwork for this line last year at the American Quilt Study Group's annual seminar.  In The Beginning Fabrics did the line in association with AQSG.

I knew it would be good, but I have to say it is FANTASTIC!

This photo is one of the floral colorways.  I put a small spool of DMC thread in the picture so you can get an idea of the scale.

It is in stores now so check your local quilt shop.  If they don't have it, do an Internet search.  There are several online sellers who also have it in stock.

I bought the documentary  and a few of the contemporary colorways.

I thought the thumbnails on the websites looked like a red print.  It turned out to be more brown.
It ended up the first one I cut into and used!

The detail in the prints is wonderful.

Not a paid infomercial, just a happy customer!
A portion of the proceeds benefit AQSG.

Great Blues

Did I mention I love the detail?
Have a great week!
Thanks for stopping by - I'm off to fussy cut some fabric....
What should I make with this fabric for the AQSG Auction this year??
Free To Use Quilt Patterns with this line HERE


  1. I just love this line too! Will definitely be making a purchase.
    Can't wait to see what you make with it:)

  2. Thanks for the heads up. The large floral really looks like it would be great from some broderie perse. I'll have to check it out in more detail. Have fun.

  3. I love the print used as a border on the free patterns. I think the fabrics are screaming for some appliqué & pieced blocks---maybe a medallion setting??? You could make a gorgeous vase & broderie perse some flowers like Kyle said. Just random thoughts---I know you probably have something creative brewing in your mind already!!

  4. The big floral print would be good to use for broderie perse. Beautiful fabric.

  5. You're right - these fabrics look really awesome, and I love all of the little detail too! Nice!

  6. What lovely new fabrics. I need to purchase some of these for my appliqué. Thanks for letting us know.

  7. Thanks for the info...I'm off to find some of that! Happy Monday!

  8. I so love this fabric, but my budget won't let me go for it right now. :(

  9. I saw these fabrics last week and I immediately wanted to buy a large chunk of every fabric in the line!! Aren't they gorgeous!!!

  10. luscious fabric - love that large floral print!

  11. I picked up a few FQers a couple of weeks ago,. It is lovely!
