A brand new year is underway and I’m hopeful 2017 will settle into a comfortable pattern of sewing and creating. Only time will tell, of course. But my stack of quilt tops waiting to be loaded on the frame promises hours of fun meanders and relaxed stitching of bindings.
Before I get to all those, I will be sewing with Heather Bailey’s Hello, Love collection for Free Spirit. As part of the One Fabric Nation program, I received a yard of every sku in this vibrant collection. Blues, golds, turquoise, reds and pinks. What fun!Groovy swirls and pops of stars fit nicely with the octopi and birds. The collection has great crossover pieces that work across the colorways, giving you a wide range of options.The golds are the best example. You can see how well the gold will mix with the reds.Even some of the blues work themselves into a red mix.I’ve pulled a few sku’s and cut pieces for the first project. Later this week I’ll share the finished project. Stay tuned for more Hello, Love during the month of January. I’ll have projects and ideas to jump start your creativity for 2017. I hope you’ll stick around!
