Fabric Focus: Darla by Tanya Wheelan




I don't normally go for the soft romantic girly fabrics, but this line just jumped out at me. I'm currently using fabrics form this line to design a quilt around my "Love Birds" embroidery pattern. The fabrics are of a great quality and feel so wonderful. The colors are just gorgeous and blend so well together. I love the aquas in this line. The "reds" in this line are not true reds but more of a darker deeper shade of pink. I know it's hard to show fabrics on a computer and I wish I had known this when I bought my fabrics. Nonetheless, the colors are beautiful together.

I bought my fabrics from Quilt Taffy's eBay store. They had a fat quarter package that I ordered, giving me a good assortment of the fabric line. They also shipped very quickly and had great customer service.

On to the inspirational projects:

How sweet of you to include me!

I pretty much have a crush on the Darla fabrics. They are so pretty and they coordinate so well. I am not much of a girly-girl, but I am hooked on this one.

Lovely photos!
You've just reminded me that I dreamed last night that I was a little girl again, twirling in a skirt like this one! What a great project :)

I saw your doll quilt on Craftster and had to pop over to see your other work...Cheers!

I think this is an interesting trend: I'm not into girly-girl lines either, yet I seriously love this line! Crazy, eh?
