Our rustic country inspired red and blue summer collection “Candy Bloom” arrives in stores this week.
Picture a summer evening on a rustic porch or a barn dance, homemade pie, fresh berries and whipped crème.
These images was the inspiration for The Candy Bloom collection.
The classic darker reds and blues reminds us of childhood summers in the countryside. The fabrics with small folklore inspired flower motives are perfect for rustic porch quilts and large pillows.
The pattern for the flag garland quilt called “The Candy Bloom Quilt” will soon be released on the blog as a free pattern.
The pillow top is made with 36 – 4,5 in squares (seem allowance included).
It’s not easy to take simple beautiful and informative pictures of fabric. And we love these pretty pictures of the spring collections by Sündenherz.de.
We just had to borrow them for the blog.
It’s always fun to combine fabric in different ways from both collections to make a perfect color scheme for a project. Greens from the Pardon My Garden Collection with the pinks and off whites from The Spring Diaries collection gives you a classic spring/summer color combination as seen here.
By just using the honey colours, pink and off whites from Spring Diaries you get a much calmer look than with the teal colored fabrics. Nothing is more comforting and safe than warm colors and pinks. Thank you Sünderherz for these lovely pictures.
This lovely retro inspired quilt is perfect for any time of year – in the spring and summer to echo the sunny seasons, or in autumn and winter to bring a welcome splash of warm colour. It has fifty-four circle blocks, all made the same way using templates. The quilt uses fabrics from the Spring Diaries range combined with solid off white quilt fabric.
Here is the Spring Diaries Quilt explanation, Template 1 and Template 2.
Spring Diaries Quilt Labels are pretty if you want to add your name to the finished quilt.
