We have been visiting with many of my Henry Glass designer friends on the
"A FLAIR FOR FABRIC "blog hop. I am so excited about this, because, well, it was kind of my idea-- along with my fellow designers--we all wanted a way to be able to help out the Hurricane Sandy victims. These things take time--and we are finally ready! All the proceeds from this book go to the American Red Cross, and that is AWESOME!
When we are so blessed, it is nice to be able to give back!
The book turned out even better than I had imagined. I got my copies just the other day, and I couldn't stop reading it--cover to cover! It is full of wonderful information and projects, and the design process for each designer.
My project in the book is called BREEZY. It is my usual mix of pieced blocks with an appliqué touch. I love how this photo turned out, so fresh and clean! The crisp white and black with soft greens and blues have such a play together.
As many of you know, I love black, and use it often in my projects. I love the high contrast and definition it gives to a project. Given the timing of putting a book out, this quilt used a collection of mine several lines ago, called Beyond the Gate. It's fun to see it again now that the fabric is mostly gone.
Don't you love pulling together fabrics for a project? Tell me about how you start choosing fabrics in the comments below, and you can win prizes! Martingale and Henry Glass will award a free ebook and fabric bundle to a lucky winner.
(This bundle is from Beth Logan's Good Morning Sunshine collection)
Then, I want to give away a prize, too. I can't wait to hear from you, so I will also pick a winner to win a bundle from each of my new collections,
PARK DRIVE and
JAMS AND JELLIES.
I know you will be able to do something wonderful with them!!!!
