Let me just squeal for a minute here……… (insert squealing and hand clapping!)
I am so excited to get these! That’s an understatement if I ever said one.
But wait, first things first. Go make your tea (or coffee), get comfortable, and cover yourself with a quilt. Ready? Let’s gush!
Today we are talking about the Nest fabrics from Art Gallery Fabrics, plus a few of their blenders.
Sometime during May and June, I’ll be participating in a blog hop for the Modern Sewcialites. Art Gallery Fabrics is one of the sponsors and I have to make a quilt for the hop. They wanted us to choose one of their Capsule collections and then choose a few blenders to mix if we wanted. Lemme show you what the options were and you can tell me how I did with my choices.
So I chose a few of the “Nest” collection and then added in some blenders for color (Nest is all black and white with a bit of gray).
Here’s what you see in the fabric above that I chose:
- Sir Bear panel
- One Sheep, Two Sheep panel
- Care Bears
- Twinkle Twinkle
- Swirly Friends
- Playing Dots
- Dream Big
- Finger Paint
- Prisma Elements in subtle turquoise
- Oval Elements in sweet pea
- Oval Elements in mood indigo
- Floral Elements in ballerina
I’m tasked with making this block (in a much bigger size) and much more of them for a throw quilt They make a great secondary design when the blocks are repeated. BUT I’m going to slide these panels in place of a couple of the blocks.
My questions to you is: Do I want to embroider over that adorable bear and sheep and make it even cooler? Maybe even put a few flowers on the bears hat?
Imagine me doing lots of giggling here.
Not sure if time is going to be an issue, so we’ll see. More on this soon.
