Cindy has a great blog with stunning modern quilt and sewing designs. I stumbled across her last week and she's a quilter after my own design style (but much more productive than I). If you love sewing, go check her out: Hyacinth Quilt Designs.
Also from Hyacinth Quilt Designs, I totally fell in love with this unique quilt block design. I think it would be beautiful in rich autumnal colours and made into Thanksgiving placemats - I'm thinking just a single feather on the left side and white space with some wavy quilting lines on the right. I think I need to make a set of those both for myself and as a Christmas gift for my mum. A matching table runner would be lovely, too, but I think I would set the feathers side-by-side is opposite directions. You can download the pattern for free: Feather Bed Quilt Pattern.
Simply Sweet fabric line by Lori Whitlock for EP by Riley Blake Designs. I love that more and more paper manufacturing companies are converting their designs into fabric (EP, MME, Bella Blvd just to name a few) and I love pretty much everything Lori Whitlock designs so this line is making me swoon right now! It comes in three colourways (blue, pink and white). Source: The Little Fabric Shop.
From Christa Paustenbaugh's blog. I'm absolutely loving how she cut up her photo for this cool "shutter shades" effect. In fact, I love it even more because the reason she cut it up was due to lines her printer had made on the photo - most of us would have just binned it but she made it work! I must try something like this.
From June Stricker's blog. I like how June's thought outside of the box here and changed up her card shape - if you tilt your head to the right, you see a diamond shape. I'm tucking away this idea for any future engagement cards I may need to make. I also really like how she layered up papers and washi tapes.
From the new Carta Bella Hello Again collection, set to release mid-July. I'm absolutely head-over-heels for this paper and if I buy nothing else from the collection, I just might add 10 copies of this paper to my cart!
Pear Brights - I have a new LO gelling in my head that uses this colour palette but think I might have to first re-print one of the photos first.
Enjoy your Sunday!
