FABRIC: Created by Melanie Samra, Journey is a modern take on a classic travel theme. Let the journey begin with this collection of exquisitely detailed textures and blenders that complement the travel themed focal prints in a wide range of colors and values, all hand painted with a combination of alcohol ink and watercolor techniques. The 28” panel print features a world map ideal for any project or stretched over a frame to create popular wall decor. Journey also includes a fashionable travel tote printed on Northcott’s premium quality, heavy weight canvas. A palette of complex urban hues from the deepest shades of charcoal, teal and ochre to the softest tints of celadon and silver lining characterize the collection.
Enjoy this technique sampler — some traditional piecing, some paper-piecing, some curved piecing and some applique. Choose either quick-fused or turned-edge applique for the text sections.
100% cotton fabric. Machine wash cold, tumble dry cool, do not bleach, iron on back if necessary.
