Spring Fling in Country Rose Fabric

April showers are bringing some mighty lovely flowers to the quilt studio. This is my Spring Fling flower quilt pattern and is looking so charming mocked up in Country Rose fabrics. Of course, Country Rose will not appear in shops until August/September 2022, so you should place your requests to your local shop now! This will help shops order enough to meet the demand when it arrives.

The Blues: Country Rose vs Folktale

As I have mentioned in previous posts, Country Rose fabric shares a similar sky blue color as Folktale (now out-of-print and hard to find). This is great news – because many of you have wanted to make the Spring Fling quilt but have been unable to locate the dusty blue “Magic Dot” print from Folktale used in the original. (Check out the original Spring Fling quilt in Folktale fabric here.)

A comparison: a blue swatch of Country Rose’s “Magic Dot” print up against the Folktale collection.

I’m comparing the blues in these pictures so you can see the difference. At a glance, they don’t look very different at all.

Side by side, you will notice the biggest difference – and for this reason, I do NOT recommend mixing the two for a single quilt’s background. However, if you completely missed out on the blue “Magic Dot” from Folktale and want to use it for the background of a Spring Fling quilt using other Folktale prints – go for it!

    Do you have kits available for the SPRING FLING quilt? If so I want one and some backing fabric.
