I'm so happy to be part of this blog hop celebrating Jamie's new fabric line...
a playful tone on tone super blender line of fabrics based on a collection of hand-drawn designs from Jamie Fingal's sketchbooks. dots, geometrics, flowers and loop-de-loops. hop, skip and jump over to the playground.
Here's what I created.
I really wanted to work in a neutral color palette with just one pop of color. I was able to select several beautiful browns and creams and this serene-yet-strong blue.
Even the names of the colors are super fun. The colors in this quilt include Meringue, Coffee, Vanilla Bean, Biscotti, Espresso, and BlueBerry. (So why didn't I make a quilt with a coffee cup and a muffin?! Next time!)
Because the fabrics are so luscious and yet spare in design, I could really add my own spin to the design without being distracted by too much color or print. So of course I added paint, hand embroidery and free motion quilting.
Several quilters made 18x18 squares for the fabric reps to take out in the field to show quilt shop owners what can be made with this line! Woot!
