The Matching Solids of Flower Pot Fabric
Everybody always asks for the coordinates for fabric collections. Today, I’m popping in to deliver a quick list of matches to my upcoming Flower Pot fabric collection for Moda Fabrics (April 2022). Sure is a warm and cozy group.
Sourcing the Matches for our Flower Pot Fabric Collection
In the early stages of designing a fabric collection, my first step is to come up with master colors. I always check Moda’s Bella Solids first to see if they have what I’m looking for. Unfortunately, there aren’t always matches for what I have in mind. Sometimes I need to supply paint chips or even a color printout to Moda to achieve the colors I’m looking for.
For this reason, I always add near-solid prints in all of my collections. Of course, these coordinate perfectly while adding something a little ‘extra’ (i.e. a polka dot or other simple pattern) to it, making it a fun background or accent. Even so, I try to come up with a list of any solids or near-solid basics I know of. I pull from Moda’s catalog of Bella Solids, as well as Grunge basics by BasicGrey.
Moda Bella Solids
Here’s what I found to be the best matches this time around. I couldn’t find a navy or green that was close enough to my liking. (It’s possible another manufacturer has a close match and I don’t know about it.)
- 9900 285 “Unbleached”
- 9900 178 “Etchings Stone”
- 9900 310 “Taupe”
- 9900 105 “Rust”
Since there aren’t navy or green Bella Solid matches, I found a couple Grunges that fit in nicely. I’ve also listed a gold color that complements the gold accents seen in many of the collection prints.
- 30150 57 “Juniper” green
- 30150 175 “Picnic” navy
- 30150 115 “Elafin” golden yellow
Flower Pot Colorways
Here’s a closer look at each colorway of the Flower Pot collection. This will give you a good idea of what prints exist and may be suitable for the backgrounds or accents you could use that already exist in the collection.
Always the perfect neutral, this taupe colorway will steal your heart. They made for the perfect baskets in the Gather quilt – check out version 1 (navy background) or version 2 (cream background) here to see them really shine.
Flower Pot Fabric Sage
This muted olive green is really an essential for any garden quilt. You’ll see many of these prints make an appearance in leaf/stems. I just have to single out the “Garden Stripe” print as one of my favorite bindings in the group. Keep an eye out for a lot of this colorway in the Flourish quilt samples.
This is always a popular colorway in my collections. I want to point out a couple of the prints that I used in quilt backgrounds. There’s the dainty “Glossary” text print that is found in the Flourish quilt. And don’t forget the “Mosaic Tile” below it – used in one of the Gather basket quilts. What really makes me swoon is the “Queen Anne’s Meadow” print on top.
This colorway offers a lot of great background basics. In particular, the tonal and taupe “Garden Dots’ on the ivory background, as well as the “Delicate Tile” print (5th down from the top). These prints always sell out the quickest -so- if you are hoping to get some in April, now is the time to contact your favorite local or online shop to let them know.
This one is giving me the pumpkin spice vibes right now. It’s a lovely addition to the collection and adds a lot of warmth through the pops of gold.
I hope you enjoyed this update on my Flower Pot fabric. Do you have a favorite colorway? Let me know in the comments!
