Four Each Other

Nov 2, 2021New Fabric Line

A road trip and Crosby, Stills, and Nash are the inspiration for this blog. So with “for-or each other” as the basis…

Ohhhhmmmm.

As fresh as the air after rain, Lisa Audit’s collection “Bohemian Blue” asks that you sit still, breathe, relax. This gentle group of four is perfect on its own, and, perfect as support for the layer cake.

Just for shivers and giggles, listen to “Baby It’s Cold Outside” by composer Frank Loesser. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MFJ7ie_yGU

The four pieces from the collection “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” offer a surprising color change-up for a winter theme. Look closely and the birds are cardinals; the flowers, poinsettias.

Martina – the 3″x6″ rectangles show off small prints; the strip piecing makes for quick completion!

These two collections, because of their scale and light, medium, medium-dark, and dark hues, shine in patterns like Martina.

Steep yourself in a story told by the collection “Winter Frost.” View the quilt in The Sewing Center.

“Winter Frost” illustrates Sara Boccaccini Meadows’ distinct, “quirky” style. Although her inspiration for this collection may not be the fictional Three Pines of Louise Penny, it does come from “nature and the tiny details in her everyday surroundings.”

Show off focal fabrics in a “big” way with Villa Rosa Designs’ Early Dawn.

So as to fit into the theme of this blog, from this idyllic collection, three pieces have been selected and paired with a Chalk and Charcoal basic from Robert Kaufman. A pattern such as Early Dawn, with its larger-scale squares of 9 1/2″ for the main print, marries well with this grouping.

Shown here: “Botanical Journal” from Clothworks with “Floral Essence” ombres from QT.

Lastly, (bearing in mind that two is the square root of four,) the four “Floral Essence” ombres shown here are exquisite in their design and rich color. In a pattern such as Bohemia, which requires only one ombre and one focal fabric, the design adds texture and movement while not overpowering the featured fabric.

These harmonious quartets will have your sewing machine humming. You’ll want to sing along.
