Hi friends! Today it’s about paper piecing, painting and fabric. I love them so what would be more fun than connect them with patchwork!
Here you see some things I like and enjoy very much: Fabrics, Paper piecing, painting, paint brushes and colours! I’m so happy to know Esther, very talented quilter and artist. When she made the pattern for colour tubes, I knew they will be my favourites! Esther writes blog: ‘i patch and quilt’ and she joined a blog hop with a theme: college. When I saw her colour wheele with paint tubes, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Her post about this Project is HERE.
My Project began from here. Trying to find scraps – as many colours as possible and many shades in one colour. That was difficult and this showed up to be a great Project to see what colours are missing from your stash.
When there began to be nice colour sets, it was difficult to stop finding NEW colour ‘pairs’. You get so hooked to this Project!
I had a ‘big’ idea for this Project and that’s why I used the white/grey fabric for the background. Now I don’t have any idea how this will continue because somehow I lost ‘the picture’ in my mind and have to make NEW plans. For sure I shall make paint tubes with white background, too – and many of them!
Esther’s ‘Paint It’ quilt won the Mini Quilt category in Blogger’s Quilt Festival! It’s fantastic – look for yourself HERE!
Now I’m sure you want to make paint tubes with your colours choises, so visit her Craftsy store to get the pattern. There are also many other great patterns like ‘The Train’! Esther’s patterns are made so carefully and she includes there pages for your colouring plans, for ideas how to use the pattern etc. These paint tubes can be used in so many ways, make a whole quilt or just one for a pouch – and anything between those!
Now I continue to make paint tubes and wait for a NEW inspiration how to connect them.
Fabrics I want to use with these Paper pieced blocks, are from the collection ‘Paint’ by Carrie Bloomston. They are beautiful and fun! Some other colours and prints also available for example at ‘Hawthorne Threads’ and ‘Fluffy Sheep Quilting’.
Thank you for stopping by! I wish you a great week! What ever weather you have, try to enjoy it – it’s great to have four seasons! I hope you won’t turn green, but here in Crete we have sunshine, about + 22C and many people enjoy this amazing weather on the beach! I just had a lovely walk with my furry friend and found some sea glass! Fisherman was swimming to find … perhaps an octapus.
