Remember our featured pincushion for April? We had those darling hats, one in bright red and mod grey and the other in fashionable brown and black. The pattern designers (The Quilted Fish) also came out with a quilt pattern- too cute to resist, right? Here is the full-size version done up in similar colors to the pattern. We used a solid white for the background, but you could choose a white-on-white fabric for a similar feel...or choose a different colorway entirely! The accents on the hats are made from gathered strips of fabric combined with funky buttons. It was fun to gather up a whole lot of bright fabrics to make a new display. The quilt just takes fat quarters plus some yardage for the background and borders.
Now if we have a black and brown pincushion...don't you think we need a black and brown quilt? We downsized a bit, and mixed up the hat accents (did someone say feathers and velvet ribbon?). This one is hanging up behind the counter.
This new group comes from Moda, from the designer 3 Sisters. It's called Papillon- gorgeous color combination don't you think? We've got some layer cakes for this group as well.
