When Kaffe Fassett's new fabric line came out a little while ago with this sumptuous fabric called 'Russian Rose', I just knew I had to make something with it.
It's such an unusual colour grouping, with the vivid orange background, the brown, red and tan roses and the brilliant aqua and raspberry leaves. I couldn't resist it. And then Brandon Mably had his first fabric collection (congrats Brandon, great job) and I fell in love with his spotty fabric called 'Dapple'. I thought I might use these two fabrics together in my next quilt.
I'm also thinking of using one of my all time favourite fabrics from Philip Jacobs called 'Banded Poppy'. This is an older range now and I love each colourway in this range, but especially love it in the sage.
But what to make with them? I'm thinking it will have to be something simple and quick, to offset all the hexagons and needleturn applique I am doing (so time consuming). Sometimes you just want to get results fast, don't you agree?! Hopefully I will have something to show in a few days.
I am on the edge of my seat at the moment waiting with anticipation for the new fabric lines coming out from our Westminster friends next month. You can go here to see that Kaffe, Brandon and Philip have come up with some beauties, and there are some cute bag patterns from Amy.
I'm off to play with my fabrics!!
