I was so excited to be asked by my fellow Oregonian Kristin of Sew, Mama, Sew! to design a fat quarter pack for their gorgeous on-line fabric boutique. Would I? Yes, please.
I'm calling my collection "Oregon April." Inspired by the view from my window, it's water, petals, birds, blossoms, snowflakes (we had hail here yesterday), and dotties, like my favorite umbrella. Enchanted April. My favorite month.
So, I've decided that arranging squares of fabric is just about my favorite thing to do. It is completely relaxing. Picking them off of a web site and arranging them into tiles instead of wandering the fabric store was so cool — I've never done that before, but I now totally get how appealing this way of designing can be, especially if you are busy and you just need a mini-break. I cannot wait to make a quilt out of these in real life. I'm thinking 4" print squares (smallish, like flowers), alternating with solid pale grayish-blue? Or is that too much like my Lemoncello Quilt? I don't know. Something. Something damp and bright and Aprilish.
Kristin's also giving away a pack. Leave her a comment describing the view from your window today, and maybe you'll win one!
Isn't that a cool bulletin board thing, too? Kristin's colleague Lauren did that. How do people make cool digital things like that? I've always wanted to do that but I have no clue.
