Ghost by Nel Whatmore
The palette is made up mostly of Jewel Tones and with some lighter Pastel-like Jewel Tones that serve as value contrast. All of these prints are nice quiet tonals because each print reads as a single color overall. My kind of “solids”! You can read Nel’s thoughts on her design process for the line here.
Free Spirit sent me this beautiful line and I thought my Fireside Chat pattern would look good in this line with a solid Grey from Free Spirit’s Designer Essential Solids. Here is an early process photo. I do like the Grey still for its negative space, but in hindsight, I am wondering if a crisp white or a much paler grey would have been better. Still can’t really decide.
I had fun creating four Blocks from Fireside Chat and then combining them into a wall hanging with a funky sashing using eight of my Modern Little House blocks.
My favorite block is this one with with Feathers in the Dark Hot Pink.
So busy right now though, I will have to put off quilting this until winter probably. This would be a good piece to practice free motion quilting on I think.
And of course I made some of my favorite bags to make for students – I have Quilters Affair coming up with a lot of students to treat! That Dark Blue Feather print is my absolute favorite of the line!
Kind of went overboard on the little tote bag photos, huh?
And then I had some scraps that I had a good time with just laying out and abstracting with! Always fun to do!
How would you like to win a big pile of scraps from this project?
Go ahead and comment here on the blog – let me know which print is your favorite. I will try to make sure that you get a large bit of that in your winnings!
That’s it for today. I will draw a name sometime next week.
Keep Sewing, Keep Happy,
