Hi Dear Friends! I have a NEW quilt in process! After making some space to my sewing room, I’m feeling a little bit better while starting again from “a clean table”.
Before starting I had to shower my NEW Fabrics. But before braking these cute bundles, I took few last shoots …
Prints: ‘Notting Hill’ from ring a roses by Gunther (give away win from Annett at ‘Knetty Craft’)
Light demin: present from Judith at ‘Just Jude’
And then off we go to the shower! And after that out for a sunbath …
Oakshott Fabrics are woven with two different colours of threads and look how the colour change when are wet!
I’m so happy that I got these two fabric bundles in same time – thank you again! Oakshott solids are gorgeus but I didn’t have any idea what Special I could make with them. I haven’t used much solids yet and also these beautiful light colours are different than my usual palet. When I looked these bundles together I realized that they match perfectly!
Once again seems to be that everything happens for some meaning … in a mood I am now, I couldn’t work with energy, bright, happy fabrics, so this calm, lightful, almost low volume collection is just what I need now. When looking for something else to add to this quilt, my eye picked the Honeycomb bundle that I had purchased while ago. I chose colours to match and left out orange/red/pink.
I had in my mind to use some low volumes for the background and made last evening test blocks …
Looking for ideas from my Pinterest Board: ‘Quilt Inspiration’, I started to lean to triangles (once again, it’s my favourite quilting shape). As I don’t want to make a repeating pattern but some how different kind/size blocks, I thought these retangle triangles would be great. And I do like them a lot, but I didn’t enjoy making them.
Other question is if I like the low volume for background? When leaving it like this at night, I wasn’t excited at all. Then at night I was thinking, once again, white is missing! Could you make a Scandinavian quilt without snow?! So in the morning I felt better because I knew how to continue: follow my instinct! When ever I don’t do that, it’s a big mistake!
So white is on the table! From the prints I cut as big squares as possible by the meaning to get the most of these Special Fabrics. I shall make different kind of triangle blocks in different sizes. Most likely I shall use also those low volumes.
Some names in my mind: Scandic Scene, Scandinavian Days, Scandinavian Scale
And just for fun …
