farrow

Since I started 5 o'clock crows, one of my goals has been to create quilts that were fully customizable, so that for any given quilt, you can choose the size, the set (or style), and the fabric for the front, back, and binding. At some point I'd like to add quilting options as well, but that's a whole separate can of worms so I'm saving that for another day.

I designed the Farrow quilt a while ago, and I've been working on colors over the past few weeks. I just finished processing the fabric that I'll be using for my swatches, and I have to say I'm pretty excited about it.

Here's a peek.


 Farrow: hand dyed mokume shibori fabric 
100% cotton 
from top: chocolate cherry, chasm, perse, 
harvest gold, grass (new!), cherry pop


To start, the Farrow quilt will be a wholecloth construction to keep the things simple. I tend to overcomplicate things and then I end up mired in details. So keeping things relatively uncomplicated for my first go-round seemed like the best idea. 

Now I just need a few nice shots of my sample Farrow so that I can get it into my shops in the next week or so. I'm very excited!
