Inspiration for "Tarrytown" by Michelle Yeo came from her love of antique quilts and the fabrics used to create them. Many of the designs in the collection are reproduced and updated for today’s market. They originated from a ‘Puss in the Corner’ quilt made in Southeast Pennsylvania, Lancaster County, Circa 1840. The floral toile print, used in the border of the antique quilt, has been reproduced in its original toile coloration. This same print is also shown in three updated multi-colorations as well. These fabrics can be used within blocks, setting squares and borders. Also, they are perfect for cutting into beautiful flowers and sprays that could be used creatively in quilts featuring Broderie Perse appliqué.
There are seven stunning companion prints offered in coordinating colors that will enhance any quilt. The fabric collection was named ‘Tarrytown’ after the beautiful, historic town north of Manhattan in the Hudson Valley area of New York state where my husband was born.
