Printology :: Plus A Giveaway!

I was asked if I would like to join the fun in showcasing a new fabric line from Benartex called Printology.  The fabric is the newest collection from Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr (Modern Quilt Studio) and was inspired by their recent trip to Japan.  The Sew In Love blog has a wonderful interview with both of them where they talk about their inspiration and thoughts about this collection.

The collection offers a fun and modern mix with loads of color!  When I first saw the collection I felt it had a funky retro vibe to it.  Which drew me in and got my wheels spinning!  


REVIVING RETRO
37" x 48"
Which brings us to the quilt I made using the Printology Collection:  'Reviving Retro'.  Retro basically means 'style, fashion or design' from the recent past.  The fabric and a classic Grecian block bring both worlds together, yet still has a modern vibe.



These are 22 different prints in the collection, I only used 13 along with white and grey solids!  The prints in row two, Blocks, is where I got the retro vibe from.  They would make the perfect center squares for the block.

GRECIAN SQUARE
9" BLOCK

I like how the graphic Sketch Gray frames the centers.  I added 2" sashing and a 3" border in Gridwork Red.  It adds a big pop of color without over powering the other prints.



I quilting the center blocks using different widths of straight lines in grey (surprise!), depending on which way the lines are going in the 'Block' print.  Again, straight lines in the sashing and border using red thread.



I used more Gridwork Red for the binding and really like the look of the white corner squares framed by the skinny binding.  The fabric feels amazing, by the way!  The 'proof in the pudding' as they say, has to be the ease in which the needle glide through the fabric while had stitching the binding to the back.  Like butter!



It makes for a pretty package don't you think?!  Which brings me to the giveaway!  Who would like to receive a pretty fat quarter package all their own?!  



Benartex is generously donation a bundle of 8-10 prints from the Printology collection to one lucky person!

GIVEAWAY CLOSED!

    I receive Sew In Love's emails and didn't realize it was your quilt I was admiring! And thank you for showing a good closeup of the fabric because those little squares just don't sell it for me. Your first block, Grecian Square, I just adore! WOWEE! That fabric is so cute - I definitely want it. All the red sashing looks so great - I'm drooling over the whole thing. Really nice! ~smile~ Roseanne

  44. This is the first year I have ever paid any attention to using grey fabric in a quilt. Yet, I have fallen in love with it and the grey you chose for the blocks in this great quilt really pops with the red and white. On top of making the fabrics inside look so much brighter. The sashing red fabric is perfect! This is a fantastic quilt; I wish I could pair fabrics like this. Thank you for sharing your fabulous quilt with us. My favorite quilt block is the Jacobs Ladder Block which I also just discovered this year. Have a great day!

  107. This my 323rd try to post this comment. I'll keep it short. First I liked the 2 quilts you shared on your blog, both very good and very different which shows the fabric's versatility. Benartex has always shown good easy to use fabric. I've used it over 30yr. I Love the word Printology, the science of prints! How you combined old & new patterns is amazing with the colors people want now but can also be used in 10+yr. You are very talented to be able to create this collection. I can only imagine the time for research, drawing,etc. How do you choose which color, which hue, and on and on. I love it all!!! I would love the entire grouping since that is the only way I would trust myself to mix so many prints. Thank you for sharing this incredible collection. Thanks also to Benartex. Just in case:
