Matching Solids with Nature Walk

Posted by on Feb 19, 2016 in Blog, Nature Walk | 6 Comments

A few of you have asked now, so I thought I’d do a proper post on co-ordinating Cotton Couture solids with NATURE WALK.

Firstly, in case I haven’t mentioned it before, or if I have and you missed it, Nature Walk is printed on Cotton Couture base cloth, which is a finer and lighter fabric than regular quilting cotton, so the CC solids are really the best option for incorporating solids into the mix for your projects so that there is a consistent weight and feel when finished.

So… What works with what?

Firstly, let’s look at the alphabet panel, ABC Nature Walk.

Here are the colours used in the letters:

Most of those will also co-ordinate with the other prints in the collection, but here are some more:

I hope this is helpful in planning your projects!

Nature Walk Sewing Challenge

OK, all you wonderfully talented sewers out there, Michael Miller Fabrics & I have a challenge for you!

abc nature walk sewing challenge

Yesterday, as a bit of inspiration, I guest blogged on the MMF site about the many ways I sewed with the “ABC Nature Walk” panel for Quilt Market a couple months ago. Now it’s your turn. We want to see how creative you can get with this panel!

Of course there are some cool prizes! Lots of NATURE WALK and COTTON COUTURE fabric up for grabs and something I’ve been keeping a secret… I have a couple of adult colouring books in the works. You could be one of the first to get your hands on a copy of one, based on ABC Nature Walk.

So, hop on over to the Michael Miller blog for all the details and get sewing! If you don’t yet have any of the fabric, it is easily available at most online stores (and hopefully at your local shop too… Just ask).

Can’t wait to see what you create!
