Earlier this week, I was reminded that I haven’t shown you the other Lovelorn samples I sewed. Jenean’s great post reminded me. Large items are always a big plus for a booth. Not only do they make a big statement in the small space, but they’re an excellent way to show off the repeats in medium to large prints. So we decided on poof/ottomans. These are Amy’s Gumdrop Pillows. They’re easy to put together–you just need to be able to install an invisible zipper. (Said zipper being an ingenious way to stuff these monsters.) They take A LOT of stuffing. I believe I used 10 pounds of polyester fiberfil to stuff these two.Next, I grabbed some of the yellow/orange/green colorway and made a Multi-Tasker Tote. This pattern never gets old. It’s full of functionality while providing a great way to show off multiple prints. The dress is McCalls 5882, one of Kay Whitt’s designs. It shows off the fabulous Modern Floral print perfectly. Of course, Stinka was on hand to give her approval.This collection has a wide variety of fussy cutting options. The Damask is fabulous for kaleidoscopic purposes. The Modern Floral and Paisley prints will be wonderful for paper piecing. (Just imagine the hexies you could make!) And speaking of hexagons, the Hexagons print is a wonderful cheater cloth and will make great backings for quilts. Lots and lots of possibilities.
Thanks, Jenean, for another fun filled collection!
