It's time for part two of our Flashback Friday series with Barbara Brackman
! Today, she's discussing shirting prints and showing you some fabrics that we have in stock that were inspired by shirting!
Shirting Prints for Contrast
is an old name for a print design featuring small, simple figures on a light
background color. Figures are set far apart to let lots of background show
through so they read almost as a white or ivory. Several designers offer
classic shirtings—- the perfect neutral to capture a period look: 1870-1920.
|Antique log cabin
block with shirtings as the neutral contrasting with darker prints. About 1880.
|Woman wearing a
shirtwaist dress, about 1900. Fashion demanded shirtings
for everybody so there
were plenty of scraps for quilts.
We'll be back on December 31 with our next segment of Flashback Friday with Barbara Brackman!
