One thing that really charmed us on our visit to Seattle last month was these adorable flowering cabbages. They were everywhere, planted in medians and parking lots and flower pots. We have these back east too once in a while, but by February they are looking pretty haggard. These were so fresh and lovely. And my favorite shade of orchid-pink-lavender.
I have been wanting to make a spiderweb quilt for a long time. After one disastrous attempt at using true scraps, I realized that I would need to actually plan my color scheme in order to like my final project. This would be so fun to make! I would use really thin strings and not try to keep them rigidly straight, but not make them intentionally wonky, either. Just enough variation to show the human hand. Of course I would make it scrappier than this mock-up. This pattern just begs to be made scrappy.
I would also love to just make a pile of cushions, each one a variation of this block, in all different sizes.
My fabric images this time are courtesy of eQuilter.com. I divide my fabric money pretty evenly between eQuilter and Pink Chalk, so I am thrilled that they have both given me permission to use their images for this feature! Going forward I’ll be switching between the two.
