These are my favorite fabrics from the original quilt that I'm copying. They appear in many of the quilt blocks.
Stripes and polka dots in 2 different colorways! I need this fabric. Someone please print it again.
Here's what I managed to find:
I didn't have any luck at all finding any old-fashioned looking light blue prints. I settled for this light teal calico. I was able to find black prints and this was the closest I found to polka dots.
Here I used a black calico and a gray fabric with tiny polka dots.
And finally another dark gray fabric with small polka dots. I did find a white fabric with red dots even if the scale is off. Notice how I ended up with white, ecru and tan for the light blocks and how similar the light blocks are in the original?
