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!
