WHAT IS SUMMER FABRIC?
The second half of July and the month of August, define summer. Long hours of day light, warm temperatures and school break, provide an opportunity for many families to enjoy a vacation. Whether your vacation is an extended holiday, a weekend get away, or a one day activity, it’s a great idea to capture these memorable moments. Summer fabric is cotton print fabric that portrays images of summer activities, from beaching to beautiful blooms.
Photos are a wonderful way to capture memories. Organized in a scrap book to be looked at and passed on to future generations is one way to re-live the memorable experiences.
Photos can also be printed onto printer fabric and incorporated into a quilt project This is another wonderful way to enjoy your memories for years to come. Printed photos can be incorporated into blocks surrounded by fabrics that enhance the memory. Perhaps the blue of the water color, flowers that grew alongside the road traveled or surfboards to capture a new experience.
