Welcome to another edition of Trendy Tuesday where I’ll be highlighting some of my favorite trends in the current fabric market. From colors to shapes and all other possibilities, we’ll be looking at similarities among fabric collections hitting store shelves.
Monochromatic refers to all the colors (tints, tones and shades) of a single hue. We’ve seen many collections release this year that include at least one or two monochromatic prints. They’re a great way to add a pop of color to any project and are beneficial to designers to help fill out a line; a way for them to add additional supporting prints without over powering the others.
Constructing a quilt in a monochromatic color scheme allows you to limit the quilt’s palette all while creating high visual interest; making an all black and white quilt, for example.
However, you can also create a more dull or soothing quilt by choosing shades that have a lower contrast; such as brown and tan.
Monochromatic prints are some of my favorite fabrics to “stash” as they are easier to match and pair with busy or more colorful prints. They play well with others, so to speak.
Here are some of my favorite examples of new and upcoming fabric from today’s featured trend:
