Deco Dance – Fabrics and Kits

Deco Dance by Fabric Freedom is one of the most unique and interesting fabric collections we’ve seen in a long time!  And Sally’s new quilt design for these fabrics really accentuates those qualities by presenting them in a unique quilt design, which we’ve now kitted.

Deco Dance Large Print - Red/Orange

Deco Dance is a new line from our talented friends at FF. The fabrics are inspired and based on the works of Clarice Cliff, one of the most prolific and talented ceramic designers of the art deco period.

Inspired by well-known Cliff landscape designs, the line is presented in two colorways, a blue with yellow accents, and a red/orange grouping.  All of the fabrics have outline tracings of gold metallic around the designs, giving the fabrics that extra sheen and sparkle.  Each of the colorways consists of 6 new all-over designs complemented by a panel and a tonal stripe fabric.

The panel contains five different designs in 6-inch squares running in rows of 5 designs across the width of fabric. Ample borders for fussy cutting are provided. Our panel offerings contain two rows.

As usual with FF fabrics, the highest quality yard goods, printing and finishing were used, making for an excellent hand and great workability.  Make sure you look through the enlarged pictures for the individual fabrics, and the quilts on our website to see the true beauty of these fabrics.

We’re offering these as individual yardage and, as usual, in our popular special collections consisting of a panel and a half-yard of each coordinate.  Sample packs are also available.  Click Here to Shop for Deco Dance Fabrics, Collections, and Kits.

Deco Dance Kits

To go along with these fantastic fabrics, Sally Ablett has designed a quilt in


Deco Dance Quilt - Blue

wall hanging or small throw size that really shows off and accentuates the design elements of the fabrics.  These quilts are 49 inches square, and each uses all 5 of the “plate” designs in a unique layout. The angled layout ties together with the tonal stripe borders to make a design that has a lot of visual interest.  Several Fabric Freedom New Reflections blenders are used in each quilt as well. Reflections is a blender that has been printed using a dozen separate screens, so there is a lot of variation in the tones in these prints, lending further visual interest. Rather than a stark black for separation of the blocks, the mottled black reflections softens the look. The black Reflections is also used for the quilt bindings.
