happy 2021! i never got online to show pictures of the trees. when i have a moment, i’ll pop over and put them on facebook.
i’ve decided it’s time to get this pastel Smitten all finished up. it has been sitting in the sewing room since 2017 with a couple blocks done…i came to a screeching halt when i couldn’t find one of the pieces. Generally speaking it shouldn’t have been a big deal. Just grab a similar looking dot or small print with the same overall look and go with it, but for some reason i couldn’t move past it.
well, i came upon the bag of papers, acrylics, pattern and 2 1/2 blocks and decided it was time to untie (crazy…am i right?!) the bundles and dig out those favorite scraps…all of which i’ve been saving for some unknown project. Well, that project is a pastel smitten. Since untying the liberty bundles and fanning out the piles of scraps and pulling current luscious bundles from the shop i’ve been tracing, cutting, basting, and stitching like a crazy person.
each block is a new adventure…putting together combinations that are just a little outside the box but still within the color palette that we love so much.
the fabrics are a mixture…French General Lawns, 3 Sisters, Liberty, Tilda, Janet Clare, Quilting in the Rain, Fig Tree Quilts, Brenda Riddle, Jane Austen, and Pretty By Hand are just a few that i can think of.
Right now we do not have any bundles of the fabrics used…however, to get a start…
the following are bundles that i am pulling from and are still available in the shoppe.
Tres Jolie Lawns by French General
Daybreak by 3 Sisters
Winter Flower Show by Liberty Fabrics,
Jane Austen At Home
Maple Farm by Tilda
Figs and Shirtings by Fig Tree Quilts
Guest Room by Pretty By Hand
if you have the fabrics and just need the paper/acrylic/pattern pack. we have those available here.
the pastel Smitten will be the 2nd Smitten i’ve made. The first was made using Moving On Lawns by Jen Kingwell. Definitely outside of our box…but a lovely palette to work with.
well…i’d best get back to unpacking the notions.
be sure to follow us over on instagram to see the pastel smitten come together…
