Centennial Williamsburg


Here is a pic of the new 1800's line Centennial Williamsburg fabrics. Today, I went to "Love2Quilt" shop in Williamsburg. They had the entire line except for two fabrics -- they had already sold two complete bolts. The shop had not even cut any FQs yet. I ordered a FQ of each fabric they had. The shop called this afternoon and said they have my FQ bundle ready. I'm going in the morning to pick it up. I can't wait!!!! Not only has it been sanctioned by Williamsburg historians, I bought it in Williamsburg! Now I have to decide something special to make out of it as a reminder of my trip.
This collection is inspired by the collections of WILLIAMSBURG. Williamsburg, Virginia was a powerful center of thought and style during the 18th century. In this bustling town, patriots such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry established the ideals of liberty, independence, and personal freedom that influenced the founding of our nation and have inspired generations. Today it thrives as a restored town and living history museum.
The Centennial Collection spans 100 years of fabrics from the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation archives, which contain nearly 400 years of antiques. Each pattern is faithfully reproduced or adapted from period clothing and quilts. This collection provides a rich array of 18th and 19th century textiles imported from England, Europe, and India as well as American-made fabrics from the 19th century.
