I am home from vacation and need to spend some time writing a really good post to tell you all about it. Needless to say, Vermont was beautiful. It was the perfect vacation to get me in the mood for a new sew along. Have you seen the news that Lee of Freshly Pieced is having a Fair Isle Sew Along?
From the moment I saw some photos of her poinsettia pillows I was smitten and now she has gone and designed a whole quilt.
You can see Lee's original plan in the link above but I decided to load her photo into Photoshop Elements and recolor it to audition other color choices.
Here is what I came up with. I think it looks like an Amish style quilt and I am very excited to start this.
I thought I'd go a little more traditional and add in brown reindeer.
I have chosen to use all Michael Miller Cotton Couture solids in these colors:
Black for the background, Cranberry and Lipstick for the poinsettias, Cappuccino for the reindeer and Turf for the trees.
I just placed my order today so I hope the fabric arrives quickly, otherwise I will be starting a little late. Is anyone else going to play along? This will be a fun, no pressure sew along.
