Anne's English Scrapbox by Di Ford

Fans of reproduction prints are celebrating the current crop of early repros. Several collections echoing pre-1850 chintzes (and rainbow stripes as above) are now available.

Dutch fabrics require a little more searching to buy them (and a little more cash)
but they are worth it.

Jane Austen at Home captures the look of the Indiennes in
the Jane Austen family quilt in the collection of her Chawton home

Indiennes---the look of prints from India, fanciful flowers scattered about.

 Christopher Wilson-Tate has also captured the look of Indiennes in his 
Regency Romance collection.

Regency Romance includes a PANEL!

The large print from Betsy Chutchian's Elinore's Endeavor
is another Indienne---the white background was common
200 years ago.

It's time to go shopping and buy fabric for an authentic-looking
medallion repro.
