More Pink and Chocolate

Presenting... you guessed it!! More Pink and Chocolate! I suppose the blog title gave it away... What a pleasing combination!!

This range features reproduction fabrics circa 1860-1885.

I obtained this information from the Windham fabric website:

The origin of chocolate brown used as a predominant color in printed fabric appeared with regularity in the nineteenth century. The color was worn by widows who had passed out of the stage of mourning, when they were expected to wear only black. The patterns used in these "mourning browns" were simple calicos, and not like the more stylized designs featured in this collection.

Yes! Warm pink and chocolates with the feel of 1800s fabrics, but in prints that we love for making quilts today.
