I haven't made it, and don't know about the sashing, but the urns are made with an old, old Marcus Brothers reproduction line designed by Laura Wagner and called Chateau Rose. It's a beautiful Ombre that came out (in the late Nineties, I think) in three colorways - Prussian blue, green and greenish brown. I fell in love with it and bought all three colors, so if you decide to make the quilt I can spare a half yard of the green :-)Ady in Israel
What a wonderful quilt! This is one I would like to put on my list to make.
Not a clue. Just looking at that quilt - while it is so beautiful - makes me nervous!!!!! LOL
Haven't made it, but I've had the opportunity to see the original in person . . . twice! Let's just say the photo doesn't do it justice. Wish I could help with the fabric.
I bought the book when it came out and slowly collected the fabrics as I found them. The selvedge on the sashing fabric says Basketweave The Alexander Henry Fabric Collection 2002. It's a goldish color and looks kind of braided. I may have enough to send you a small sample. Do you have the background print? I saw the quilt in person years ago and loved the fabric Terry chose for it so I tried to collect the same ones. I still need to actually make it though.
I've never seen that book or quilt. It's a real beauty!
I see you are finding the answers to your question. I was going to make the quilt but have decided to put everything away. I just wasn't satisfied with what I had picked out to use.
I never made it but it is lovely!Micki
