I'm currently sewing my April mini quilt which is due for release later in the month. I thought you might like to see the fabrics I'm using for this one, because they are simply gorgeous.
Sedef Imer of Down Grapevine Lane and I purchased this fat quarter bundle from the designer herself, which is always lovely. You may have seen them before but I wanted to share them with you anyway and also give you a little sneak peek of my new mini.
I love these colours, especially the gorgeous blues, pinks, grays and reds. I tend to judge fabric ranges by the tone of the blue (or aqua) fabric. If the blue appeals to me then I know I want to work with the range (just my idiosyncrasy). The pinks are gorgeous as well but I think what really sold me on this bundle was the pinstripe fabrics as they will be perfect for bindings.
I've had this mini planned in my design book for quite sometime and I think I've subconsciously delayed making it so I could use these fabrics. I am thrilled with how its looking so I'm glad I waited.
I rarely buy fabric as I'm committed to sewing from my stash, but when I do treat myself it has to be a range which is pretty special and "Sweet Orchard" is as special as it gets :)
Happy sewing :)
