Some time ago, I decided I really needed to branch out more with my colour palette, specifically aiming to use more blues, rather than my usual pink, purple and grey combination...
I ordered a FQ pack of the new Hadley range, in blues, by Denise Schmidt. Not for the first time, I like her fabrics better online than I do in my sewing room! I'd ordered the solid turquoise at the same time, as the shop's suggested coordinate, but really it is too strong for me, and I would have been better with a subtler solid.
I also blended in several low volume prints, which I'd been collecting lately. These certainly help to tone things down!
As simple, therapeutic sewing, this wasn't a bad project, but I can't say I love the result. My plan is to go ahead and quilt this, and add it to my shop or next craft fair stall. It is far more masculine that any of my other quilts, and may appeal to someone who favours different colours to myself!
Just as well I took the photos when I did - we are enduring the traditional Bank Holiday downpour today... Hope you are having a fun long weekend!
