The Classic Appeal of Red and Blue

GalleryRedBlueCOLLAGETrends continue to point toward the graceful elegance of red and blue with white across all design categories, which might help to explain the lasting appeal of GALLERY IN RED AND BLUE by Faye Burgos.  Her stylized florals, paisleys and coordinates are the very look being shown currently in top decorating and lifestyle publications, blogs and specialty retailers, both traditional and contemporary.

From Valentine’s Day right through to the Christmas season, red with white is a natural favorite, while blue and white is always fresh and calming. Combine them during the summer holidays and any patriotic themed activities, including the fast-approaching July 4th holiday here  in the US.

Look for GALLERY IN RED AND BLUE prints, and our free quilt pattern by Heidi Pridemore, in your local quilt shops.  You can also purchase Nancy Rink’s “Glory Days” quilt pattern at www.nancyrinkdesigns.com.

Think Spring with the SUBTLE SKIES Collection

Looking for the perfect project to welcome Spring?  Consider this pretty quilt designed by Homestead Hearth, featuring Faye Burgos’ beautiful SUBTLE SKIES collection.  “Gentle Dawn” is fully patterned in the McCall’s Quilting March/April 2014 issue.  It’s beginner friendly, and a kit is available.  We love it for a guest bedroom, but once you sew it up, you’ll want to treat yourself!
