I had talked two days ago about making jewelry again and showed off some new marbled hexagon pieces. Well, I went another step and scanned a huge handful of those hexagons and digitized them to be used in all kinds of projects.
I thinking I’m going to run with this idea and see exactly what I can make when I mix my jewelry with my quilting. The sky is the limit.
For now I’ve added a whole bunch of pieces using the scans to my Society6 shop…
I am slowly ordering swatches from Spoonflower and currently a few colorways are available as yardage with more coming super soon…
Seriously, there is so much more I can do here! Other shapes, more casting techniques, different colors, etc. I am so excited by this project and will probably be sharing more about it soon!
Betz has reached out and asked a couple designers to add their personality to a few of her patterns. In exchange for doing this blog post, I received a fully printed panel of my own designs printed on Eco Canvas through Sprout Patterns.Pin It
Lately I have been working with Michael Miller fabrics on a few quilts to show off some upcoming lines, nothing else that I can share other than the Equestrian Quilt Last week. I have also had the pleasure of working with one of their basics, Painter’s Canvas. It’s basically a solid with some texture and it goes great with my simpler quilt designs.
There are 27 colors with coordinating texture, and then 8 with gold texture. I have been working with all of the bright colors, and have included them in three quilts so far. All three are patterns that will be released within the next four months, so keep an eye out for them.
I loved playing with the lines and turning them in different directions to get different looks. It really brought all of my designs to life and made them way less flat. So if you’re feeling the same way about one of your designs, I totally suggest this line!Pin It
I know I said two weeks ago that I would only be doing one project for Andover Fabrics this Quilt Market, and I really meant it at the time! But then I saw Libs Elliott’s debut line with them called True Love. It was just too many perfect black and white fabrics, and I just had to work with it.
So I am now working on a second, much smaller project using all of these beauties…
These marbled designs are my absolute favorite and I plan on getting a few yards of each when they officially come out! I’m thinking dresses, kids skirts, quilt backing, quilt binding and so much more! It’s just too perfect!
The line officially comes out May 2016, so keep an out at your favorite shops local or online!Pin It
I’m taking it slow this spring and I am only working on one project, and it just happens to be for the company I’ve been working with the longest, Andover Fabrics.
It will be a super tall and skinny banner featuring all of the Lizzy House line shown above and using an upcoming pattern of mine. I won’t be showing TOO much of the progress over the next few weeks because I don’t want to give that much of the pattern away.
Instead let’s just drool over just how gorgeous the Whisper Palette by Lizzy House really is…
Look at all those pretty grays and low volumes!! I can not wait to cut in to these soon!!
