Heals curtain fabric from the 60s and 70s - orange




Have recently been asked to make some orange Heals cushions for someone and whilst finding possible samples, I thought they'd make a fabulous quilt! It's funny how most of the Heals fabrics I have from the 60s and 70s use bright orange.

They're gorgeous. I'm so jealous of your fabric supplies and ability.

I'm thinking I should give a quilt a go ... but don't even know where to start! I'm sure there's a plethors of info on the Internet.

Can't wait to see yours when it's finished.

They look lovely.Thanks for sharing as it helps me identify a piece of fabric I have. It's the one with lots of smaller flowers but I have it in blue.I think you actually bid on a piece I had on ebay. I wondered why it did so well ;)

Those colours make me laugh (no offense). It's the colours most of my 'Aunt In Law's' apartment is deck out in. She is so stuck in that era, although I can't blame her. The cushions will be fab! :)

I just gave a lecture about color in graphic design, and talked about how around the mid-sixties these super bright, eye-popping red-pink-orange palettes were popping up everywhere... these fabrics would make a lovely addition to my slide show!

Just came across this post whilst putting together memories of my lovely grandma - she had these fabrics in the bedrooms as curtains - I can still remember the morning sun coming through them when we used to go and stay!
