A Closer Look at the Block Print Fabric Bundles

Once a year when I come from India to the US I like to bring some fabric to share with you all. It feels like giving a little piece of my heart to you. I just love the colors and culture of India and these fabrics are a part of that.

This year I brought two main bundles and some yardage for backings or larger projects like clothes. These fabrics are all cotton and have loose weaves. They are so easy to sew with!

First, let's talk about the smaller bundle, it's made up of black, cream and red fabrics. Most are hand block printed which means they all are unique and you can see subtle differences in the fabric. I love this because it reminds me of the people who have made these works of art.

You can find the bundles of fabric in my shop here.

I've never sewn a quilt before with mostly black fabrics before. But I decided to with these fabrics. You can see my quilt blocks below.

I would have used a solid background but didn't have enough of the right color at the time. You can see in the picture below I matched the fabrics up with some Art Gallery Fabrics Pure Solids. I really liked the darker color and would have used it but didn't have enough and since I made the quilt top in India I couldn't order any. I think the darker color is Sandstone and the lighter color is Creme de le Creme. Both would go well with this bundle.

This bundle is a great classic bundle which would look good in a variety of projects. You can purchase your bundle here.

The second bundle I curated for you all is called the Bundle of Fun. My husband helped me name it. :) It has so many fun colors and patterns and reminds me of going to a market in India. You can see the bundle below.

I actually have several variations of the bundle in my shop, some with more fat quarters, some with less. You can get a look at them here.

This bundle is so fun to work with. The fabrics play together well. I decided to make one of my Old Muscat Souq Quilts with this bundle. You can see the fabrics all cut and mixed and matched below.

Below you can the progress of the blocks and how the fabrics are looking when sewn together. I am loving it even more than I thought. But I love bright colors!


Both bundles were fun to curate for you all. Check them out in my shop and get yours before they are gone.
