During #virtualquiltmarket, I had the extraordinary opportunity to design my own fabric bundle for Gotcha Covered Quilting! I love love love color! My apparel construction teacher says I have a natural eye for combining color and prints. I must have inherited this trait from my mother. She’s a natural.
I started with purple. It is my favorite color. What can I say? Purple also blends well with so many colors! I wanted to combine my purple with low volume fabrics and a pop of color. After seeing this gorgeous print by Frances Newcombe from her Utopia line, I knew that pop of color would be teal.
After the decision to add teal was made, I started looking at low volumes. Leah Duncan is one of my favorite designers and her Gramercy line pulls at city planning trained heart. I knew this print had to be included.
My next selection was this great piece by Sara Lawson of Sew Sweetness. To me, it reads as a dark low volume and almost black. It was important to me that the bundle not be too dark.
After finishing my half apron, I knew these two prints from Geometric Bliss by Jeni Baker would be perfect.
Last (but definitely not least), I wanted another lighter purple. This print from Utopia fit the bill perfectly. I might need to buy a bolt of it!
So here is the final result:
I had so much fun curating this bundle! I was in shock when it sold out in 25 minutes and a waiting list was established. You liked it. You really liked it! 😉
I am looking forward to curating another fabric bundle soon!
