Blue is my favorite color. I love everything blue. I try to control myself and not make every room in my house blue. Sometimes blue is a popular color for decorating and sometimes it is not. It seems to go in and out of favor. It is the same with quilting fabric. So I try to keep a nice assortment in my studio stash so that I can always find some. I have even filled a big plastic bag with lots of my blue and white fabric with the intention of making a few scrap quilts.
When I saw the newest Karen Combs' fabric collection called Midnight Blue, Riverwoods, I knew I had to have some. I loved every single fabric. And they were perfect for the winter themed project for the The Quilt Life that I had been asked to design.
Here's a little sneak peek. I had a lot of fun doing some embellishing. I found some gorgeous rick rack in an etsy shop. I couched metallic thread to get the feel of snow. Look for the entire project this fall.
Today is also the day I am to choose the winner of Sew Embellished! I put the names in a hat and pulled out the winners name. Congratulations to:
Martina of Basil, Switzerland!!
