Last autumn, Fingerprint Fabrics in the United Kingdom offered free shipping to Canada, so I jumped at the chance to try out some of their fabrics. I ordered a roll of the Warm Collection. The prints are distinctive; I would describe them as digitally altered photographs printed onto fine, tight weave, high thread count cotton.
I used an entire piece of fabric (each piece is about 23 cm by 23 cm), in their pattern called "Winter Oaks"as a centre panel for my mini quilt. I analyzed the colours in the Fingerprint fabric as a complimentary colour scheme of blue and orange. I used other fabrics, both solids and prints and a batik, in varying values of blue and orange, to border the panel. I used a wool batting which, along with the hand quilting in #8 perle cotton, gives a lovely loft to the piece.
