Attention Astrology Lovers - Sun Signs of the Zodiac Fabric
At The Cotton Club we are excited about the arrival of a new fabric line - New Dawn. It just arrived on Friday and 2 of us are already working on quilts. The line features all 12 of the Zodiac signs along with a panel and 5 overall designs. We have so many ideas for using it.
From a Fat Quarter pack, we quickly made the small (57" x 44")top shown, featuring all 12 zodiac sun sign fabrics and the panel. With the remaining Sun Sign Fat Quarter pack, we cut out 4 1/2" squares - about 60 of them. We are going to add an inside border of black, then the squares, another black border and a dark binding. We are going to back it with the Tarot card like fabric, that actually says something about the characteristics attached to each of the sun signs.
We think, whoever did the art work on this fabric, really knew a lot about the zodia signs, the animals and other associations attributed to each of the sun signs. It looks serious enough for those who know a great deal about Astrology. Each fabric has a 24" repeat. The art work is intricate and sophisticated.
Even as a baby quilt, we think it would be wonderful. The fabric is serious enough to carry one through life. And, as other things change, our sun sign stays the same. I would like to take my sign and combine it with my husbands sign for a quilt. That lead me to think how doing the same would make it a fun wedding or anniversary quilt. The possibilities seem endless.
When I get the border added, I will post another photo but even this is big enough for a lap quilt. If you want to see the whole line, Click here.
