This hand-dyed cotton fabric by Cherrywood is a wonderful alternative to wool for the background blocks. Known for their high quality fabrics and subtle gradations, Cherrywood's fabric will give your quilt backgrounds a depth and variety not seen in any other cotton. It reads as a solid, but is really a beautiful tone-on-tone.
Using cotton backgrounds with wool appliqués will be a more economical way to achieve your look without sacrificing the integrity of the original quilt. Not ALL the backgrounds in the original were wool!
As always, shipping will be adjusted to save you as much as possible.
