Creating a patchwork pillow...

My next project in sewing class is creating a patchwork pillow. Since we need at least seven different patterns, I thought this would be a great opportunity to use up a bunch of my fabric samples from my Pink Home fabrics. When I design, I have to print samples to see how the design how actually works on fabric ~ to see if the colors are correct, etc. ~ which means I always have a plethora of fat quarters on hand.
For this project, I pulled together a bunch of pink and pale green designs ~ they’ll make a lovely pillow, don’t you think? (And if you are interested in any of these designs, you can still find them on Spoonflower.) I’ll share photos of the completed project once I have finished it.

Wishing all of you a lovely day...

The lovely birds of autumn...

One of my favorite autumn patterns is Autumn Birds (above). I liked it so much I decided to create it in different color ways. The result was Bright Autumn Birds (directly below) and Autumn Birds in Plum. It’s a pretty pattern with a bit of whimsy, no matter which version you prefer. I have fabric samples of all three designs that I have decided to make into napkins to use this autumn and possibly even at Thanksgiving. We’ll see.

Fabrics perfect for autumn...

With autumn rapidly approaching, I am beginning to think of all the wonderful fall colors: pretty oranges, a lovely burgundy and Earthy greens and browns. Autumn has inspired a number of my fabric designs, including these shown here. Above is Sunset and below is Autumn Roses. They are perfect for napkins and placemats or a pretty table runner or tablecloth. Or whatever else you might want.

The beauty of an unexpected red rose...

We planted a bunch of climbing roses along our white picket fence earlier this year. Some of them were larger than others, so their growth rates have varied. This plant was among the smallest and I didn’t really think it would do much of anything this year but it did recently bloom ~ a glorious burgundy red rose. Isn’t it beautiful?
Wishing all of you a lovely day...
