Pride and Prejudice

PrideAndPrej420wAs you know, my next fabric line for Moda (due in shops Spring 2016) is based on my ‘The Wordsmith’ book which is all about pressed flowers from a precious bouquet, saved letters and little notes, collecting memories and stitching them into cloth to make quilts to snuggle under and tell your stories with. ¬†

I always try to include some good textural prints in my fabric collections and I think ‘text’ is a good example of one.

I wanted to design something that looked like words on a page (without actually saying anything- we don’t all speak English, or want the same words on our fabric) and was playing in my sketchbook with an old copy of ‘Pride and Prejudice’ when I realised all I needed to do was to doodle over the words.

So, here is my ‘text’ print. I hope you find lots of uses for it in your quilts.

Only we will know it’s actually Pride and Prejudice and most definitely includes this¬†memorable speech.

Colin Firth is the Mr Darcy in my opinion.

    This looks like the perfect “print”. It will be fun to find ways to use it in quilts.
    Colin Firth definitely makes a good Darcy. I’m also fond of David Rintoul’s work as Mr. Darcy.
    What would we do without Jane’s writings!

    This is just perfect…….and I love that it’s secretly Pride and Prejudice. Colin Firth will always wear the Mr Darcy crown for me. Hope you’re enjoying Houston. X

    Love this new range that’s coming! Especially more so, now I know the text print is P&P. And I wholeheartedly agree on your choice on Mr Darcy!! There just hasn’t been another that can hold a candle to Colin Firths performance.
