Well, what do you think? Will RADIANT ORCHID play a part in your 2014 creative plans? Do you think it works best for quilts, home decor, or fashion? It does play well with this orchid/plum colorway of MEDALLION MUSE by Faye Burgos! See the entire collection, available in quilt shops beginning in March. Read more about this new celebrity in the world of color!
Already we’ve been told by more than one shop owner that they can’t possibly decide between the two gorgeous colorways created by Faye Burgos for her M FOR MYSTERY collection! We really didn’t mean to make it such a difficult decision for you…but if it helps, you could always offer BOTH the blue/rust, AND the black/pink combos! Either way, you can’t lose with these lush floral lead patterns and their companion prints when creating our new Mystery Quilt BOM, designed by Homestead Hearth! When you start with fabrics this beautiful, you can’t help but make a great quilt! The program begins in January, so maybe you’d better begin the color decision-making process now ; ) Quilting friends, what do you think??
Did you see the new issue of McCalls Quilting? It features a lovely design by Vicki Bellino of Bloom Creek, with her signature English paper peicing, applique techniques, and our folk art-inspired PROVENCE & BEYOND collection by Faye Burgos! A wonderfully seasonless look. We love how it mimics the look of the antique dishes in the china hutch. A kit of the fabrics and paper pieces is available through the magazine for a limited time, or visit your local quilt shop for the fabrics.
Check out our resident Strip-It(TM) expert, Vicki Bellino of Bloom Creek, as she demonstrates some of her favorite quick, fun & practical techniques for using Faye Burgos’ Strip-It pre-printed stripe fabrics. From easy half-square triangles to piano key borders to wedges (shown) and much more, you’ll learn how to achieve pieced looks with precision, in a fraction of the time. Watch the video now! We’d also love to see YOUR creative strip-It ideas, too! Send us a description and a photo or two, and we’ll send you a fabric thank-you!
