Happy Friday! Can you believe it’s almost June!? While it is still May, I want to finish showing you the Market samples I worked up for Free Spirit. A last minute request for some True Colors projects resulted in a few fun items. First up, Joel Dewberry’s True Colors.A quick table topper and a Cozy Cube, from Anna Maria Horner’s Seams to Me book, were whipped up in short order. They go so well with my little stash of Red Heart’s Soft yarn. Fortunately, I had a large granny square on hand for staging. Next, I jumped into my Jenean Morrison True Color stash. You may recognize my table topper from the True Colors blog tour. It took a little trip to North Carolina, then on to Pittsburgh, hopefully back to North Carolina and eventually back home to me. To go with it, I made an English Tea Cozy from Jane’s Pint Size Pattern, along with three Break Buddies (available in the Freebies section).After that, it was on to Heather Bailey’s prints. I chose my Anywhere Bag pattern to highlight these. A quick little fabric flower embellishment from charm squares and it was good to go.And for a fabulous finish to this last minute round of sewing, a fun patchwork pillow in Anna Maria’s prints. I incorporated a few pieces from Dowry to coordinate. Adding the buttons in place of quilting saved a bit of time while adding unexpected texture and color.
That wraps up the sample sewing, with the exception of a quilt in Dena’s Tiddlywinks collection of which I have no decent photo. As always, it was great fun to do all this work. It did help keep me distracted from some of the crazy kitchen stuff.
And speaking of the kitchen…it’s almost done! I even made new curtains yesterday. It was really hard to choose fabric, but in the end, I decided to start with voile cafe curtains. The two prints are Amy Butler designs, the bottom one from Hapi and the blue one from Cameo.Next week, I should have pictures of the end result to share. In the meantime, have a great Friday and enjoy your weekend!
