    Americana colors & Jason Momoa

    I've got to make a quilt for my DS best friend's wif. She was born on Flag Day & loves the red/blue/white combo & anything Americana. Just what is Americana colors? Plus, Jason Momoa was in North Carolina over the weekend. Just only a state away & I DIDN'T know it! How was this possible? I didn't even get a call or email. Sigh. Probably just as well. His wife might have gotten concerned when he didn't get home on time. LOL! Gina

      To me, this says Americana through and through. By the way, who is Jason Momoa?

      There's nothing more directly linked to who we are than the fabric that we make.

        Don't feel bad, Rob. I didn't know who Jason Momoa was either & had to look him up. Yes....I do live under a rock!

      American colors are Red, White, and Blue. But "Americana" is not defined by colors, it's "things associated with the culture and history of America". So "Americana" can be any color.

        Jason is such a great guy, but sometimes he looks like he walked out of the mountains just getting out of a fight with a grizzly bear.

          My DIL wanted an Americana quilt. We e-m'd back & forth. I had her look at several patterns. This is the final product. It also is Henry Glass fabrics. It's called Freedom Star. F.S. Quilt Top Aug. 2013 001.JPG
          This is the top before it was quilted. It's a combination of log cabin & star blocks. There are other pics in my Freedom Star album. An Americana quilt can be anything that shows American life & usually is done predominantly with the patriotic colors of red-white-blue. The pattern is your choice.

          Momoa. cute. in movies, sports, etc. I see him a lot on t.v. Especially one silly commercial where he strips off his muscles to become an extremely skinny person. Yikes. not real of course.

            The Americana colors are a little more subdued. Not the bright red white and blue you would normally use.

              I didn't know that the Americana colors were more subdued. I do know who Jason Momoa is, went to see the Aquaman with m,y daughter and her 3 youngest. But I knew him from the Stargate series.

                I think of Americana as being red, white, and blue but along the lines of Civil War repro fabrics. Tiny calico prints and reds like brownish red not cherry, navy and cream not whitey white. Designers like Judie Rothermel, Jo Morton, Kim Diehl.

                  Americana comes in 2 colorways, in my opinion. First Bright White along with primary colors Red and Blue. The second is Tan, Maroon and Navy. It's just a matter of personal preference. Neither is 100% right or wrong.

                  And speaking of Jason ... anyone remember Baywatch Hawaii? He joined the cast in 1999 when he was just 19.
