Luxembourg fabrics

I have been trying out some fabrics together that could be used to make the Luxembourg quilt.







I have chosen 37 fat 1/8s, This includes a few spares in case someone wants to swap colours around a little bit, or doesn't like one or two of the fabrics.










The fabrics don't fit all into one photo, so I put them all together on this page.


The light coloured fabric is for the sashing, the black is the same one I used in the original quilt for the binding.

All these fabrics are reproductions from the 1800s - as are the fabrics in the original quilt.

I really like all these fabrics together. Maybe I will make something else with these.... just for fun???

Why Luxembourg? I was trying to think of the name of the fabric range I used (which was actually "Lexington" by Jo Morton) and couldn't remember it at the time of emailing the quilt to the project editor!!! LOL!! So, it became Luxembourg. VBG
