Inkling | Posy Fabric

The moment I saw this fabric line, I knew it needed to become an Inkling quilt STAT! Isn’t it lovely? It is Posy fabric by Annabel Wrigley for Windham Fabrics and it releases this November. I was lucky enough to get my hot little hands on an advance bundle in time to create this Inkling quilt for the release.

This is my favorite print from the collection. Isn’t it just lovely??

I chose my 16 favorite prints from the Posy fabric collection to make the large throw size of Inkling (64″ x 64″). I used an off-white solid fabric for the background to really allow the prints to shine. When it came to creating a backing for this quilt, I chose to dig through the stash, using solid scraps to create a fun, bright and interesting back.

A vintage-inspired quilt needs to be hand-quilted, right? Right. I used Aurifil 12 weight in #4026 for the quilting. I loved this dark green, it coordinated well with the prints in the collection, and it added such a great pop of interest. Without it, the white space was looking a little too white. I’m so pleased that you can really see all of the quilting! I chose to only quilt the background fabric. I considered quilting in the prints too, but I tried it for a block and didn’t love it, so I ripped it out. Sometimes, simpler is better!

You can find Inkling in paper and pdf version in the shop, and it looks amazing in prints and solids alike! I love that Inkling can look vintage, modern, bright, muted, and everything in-between simply by the fabrics you use! I have yet to see an Inkling quilt I didn’t like.
