Have you ever heard of digitally printed fabrics?? The technology these days is moving forward in everything and the production of the fabrics is no exception. I had the opportunity to test a series of digitally printed fabrics called Living wild. It included a gorgeous panel with amazing paintings of animals bursting with colours. The range of colours is what is so attractive on the digital print, as you’re not limited to a palet made of several colours (the dots with numbers near the selvedge on the fabric).

The fabrics were supplied by EQS – British distributor. It was designed by KG Art Studio for P&B textiles. it was my first experience with digital print and I was nicely surprised. It’s tightly woven and the print sits on the fabric beautifully. It’s easy to cut and work with and doesn’t fray much when handled.

The drawings of different animals are really cute using abstract colourway to keep the orange and blue vibe of the series. The panel has 8 different drawings and the other 8 are mirrored image. For the quilt I have designed for you I have used all 16 pictures, plus the coordinating fabrics, which are lovely on their own.

Construction of the quilt is using mitred corners to achieve the effect of the border around the panels being made halfway from blue fabric and halfway from the orange one. So if you’ve never made mitred corners, this might be a good way to start.
