In my last blog I shared with you my love for primitive wool projects. Yes, I have the woolie loves to the extreme. I love the feel of pulling thick thread through this plush, soft fabric and feeling it sink into the layers of abundant, downy goodness. The colors are so palpable. Hand-dyed wool is like working with batiks but velvety. The project below isn’t finished yet, but you can see the dying effects in the background wool. Simpy delectable! I’m farther along with this project now and will share it when finished.
When it comes to choosing fabric we all know where our own individual tastes and preferences lie. Whether you tend towards a modern or traditional aesthetic, or like a little bit of everything, the one thing that can challenge a lot of people is finding a way to combine colors in a pleasing and functional way. Throughout the month of July, we are going to be providing some insight into the world of color and how it can help take your quilts to the next level.
I spent the long Memorial Day weekend hard at work cleaning and rearranging my sewing room–trying to make some sense of the chaos. I took down the table I had been using for my sewing machine, moved boxes around, and organized my patterns and projects. For the first time in a long time I was able to get to my big window and give it a good cleaning!
Ornamental Floral Table Runner speaks to an elegant Christmas décor. It’s our first collection with gold metallic frostings and I love it! It reminds me of a bygone era that was lavish in gold Christmas ornaments, shimmering tinsel and lovely gold and silver serving sets all preened for a holiday of celebration and entertaining.
The sunflower is a beautiful reminder of the grace of summer and the welcoming of fall. What better way to celebrate a lovely time of year and greet a new season than to place this bold and brassy August Candle Mat in your home. Again, made from Quilter’s Candy, the August Candle Mat truly captures the essence of the sunflower in these warm, peppy colors. Enjoy!
