Who likes quilting fabrics fresh and modern? If you do you’re in the company of Karoliina, our October guest!
Karoliina from Finland is a die-hard fan of bold prints and splashy colours in quilting cottons. For her next project she picked a bundle of the best pinks and violets combined with two fabrics from Create, the first collection by new designer Kristy Lea.
Karoliina says she needs colours to take her through our dark winter months in the north and I hear her loud and clear. Evenings arrive earlier and lately there’s been rain in the air. Soon we have no sun at all for weeks on end, but must turn to other types of sun – such as cheerful fabrics!
Karoliina was asked to pick six prints from our current selection and she came up with a highly modern bundle.
Here it is without text on top:
Starting from stripes on navy, clockwise:
- Create Colour Me Happy Navy by Kristy Lea for Riley Blake Designs
- Ripples Pink by Bari J. for Art Gallery Fabrics
- Gingham in Lilac by Makower UK
- Create Hexie Bees White by Kristy Lea for Riley Blake Designs
- Spot in Raspberry by Makower UK
- Star Bright Mauve by Andover Fabrics
I have to admit these showcase perfectly why I got into the business myself. There’s nothing dusty and boring about this bundle, but it’s pure dynamic energy and exciting visually.
Also, remember how the stripes are perfect for quilt bindings of scrappy quilts full of colours, to mention one example.
Get Your Own
I’m proud to carry this bundle in our shop. Thanks so much, Karoliina, for accepting my challenge!
If you decide to create with this little collection, remember to tag us #senttijatuuma on Instagram. I’d love to see what you make!
