Dandi Duo fabrics arrived in December and with all the rush and excitement of the holidays, I didn't share much about it. Wow, how did THAT happen? So this is a little late, but Dandi Duo is still in shops now. I'm sharing some pictures for you to get a closer look.
Dandi Duo is the sister collection to Dandi Annie, one of my favorite groups with big white dandelion seed puffs and lots of childhood memories. The beautiful and dreamy weeds are still growing strong and back for another season of blowing wishes to the wind.
The main print in Dandi Duo features the big dancing seed puffs along with golden blooms that have yet to turn to seed, backed by big pink circles and flowing leaves. A simpler illustrated “Dandi Toile” and dandelion paisley coordinate with the group, as well as “Little Bitties” of simply sketched blooms and a “Cross Stitch Stripe” for a linear companion. “Flyaway Seeds” is a delicate print of seedlings in flight.
The existing colors of Thatched create the palette of Dandi Duo: Maize, Gray, Shadow, Greenery, Sugar Rose, Peach and Blizzard. These light and happy colors are balanced with the calm, serene nature of the grays and cool white. Don’t forget to add some Thatched 108” wideback fabric in Gray 85 or Blizzard 150 and Thatched premade Bias Binding in Gray or Soft Black to coordinate for easy finishing of your quilts.
Here are some images of the color groupings:
One part of finishing up a collection is finding some fun quote or thoughts you'd like to share on the selvage. For Dandi Duo I just had a simple thought, "Make a wish and blow! Let the seeds of dreams scatter and grow." Isn't that what we all believed as children? I still love the magic of blowing those seeds to the wind!
The Dandi Duo collection has 31 SKUs (which includes the 7 Thatched colors of Maize, Gray, Shadow, Greenery, Sugar Rose, Peach and Blizzard) and has precuts of fat quarter bundles, Jelly Roll 2 1/2" strips, 10" Layer Cake squares, 5" Charm Pack squares and 2 1/2" Mini Charm squares.
Dandi Duo feels happy and free. I hope it makes you as happy as it makes me! Read on to see more of Dandi Duo made up into some new quilts.
