I saw the gorgeous fabrics from Umbrella Prints for the first time on the blog Noodlehead. I thought the fabric would be from America and would cost a fortune to get shipped so I wouldn't be able to get it. When I saw it was an Australian company I decided I had to buy some. I made a simple wall hanging using rectangles and loved how it turned out. I have made similar ones with batiks and quilted them with simple straight lines. I decided to do something different and have now had my first experience with matchstick quilting. I love the look and the texture but it is very time consuming. For small projects only!
