A Wrap Up

I was (still am) so in love with this collection of fabrics (by Robert Kaufman) that I used for my past 6 ensembles.  Just for fun, I wanted to show you the fabrics and ensembles all together now that all 6 fabrics have been used.

One of the reasons this collection was such fun to work was that each was different enough to hold my interest–bouquets, all over 1980s retro roses, teeny tiny roses, and each of those three in two of the yummiest colorways, lilac/lavender/rose pink and blush/peach/mauve.  How could anyone go wrong, in my opinion anyway?  Originally, I thought my favorites would be the two middle fabrics with the cool palette colorway taking the blue ribbon.  Not so, I really loved using all of them… equally.

Here are all the ensembles I made using these fabrics.

I hope you are having a beautiful day, my friends!  Bye for now!

    I love seeing the exquisite fabrics all together. I also would be very hard pressed to choose one as a favorite. There’s just something about the pinks.
    Actually some rain today. Crazy Rufus sided Towhee has been banging on the big window. Trying to chase away that other male birdie that really isn’t there. Hope he settles down soon. I’m sure he has a huge headache.
    P.S. Tell Gina that Bessie welcomes her to visit California anytime. She said that she would take her on a tour of the northern Pacific Coast and maybe see some whales. She would also show her the giant Redwoods. 🙂

      Ha. I’d better keep Gina busy otherwise she may wander off to CA. If she disappears I’ll know where to look first. It sounds like you’d show her a great time.
      We ended up with a sunny day! Yahoo! I didn’t know we’d have one, so it was the best surprise. I took more photos–perfect timing.
      BTW, who is Crazy Rufus sided Towhee??? A cat? A bird?

      1. Joy

        It is a bird, but I spelled it wrong. Rufous sided Towhee. They are a pretty bird. I can’t add a picture here but there are a lot around here. Regular brown Towhees too. Flying into the window after seeing his reflection. Thinking he is seeing another male after his birdie girlfriend. Only way for him to leave the window alone is if our neighbor cats are nearby on the deck. I’ve been chasing him off with the broom. The banging on the window is driving me crazy. That’s me crazy bird/cat lady. 🙂
        Glad you had nice weather and got in some photos.

        Oh, ha ha! You must have very clean windows. I’ve seen male goldfinches do the same thing, but not too often as my windows are often dirty. Another beautiful day today, very thankful!

    I think my favourite is ” a whisper of spring ” but I love them all. I would love to have access to the small prints. We are having a beautiful Autumn day here in Tamworth NSW Australia. Plenty to keep me occupied. I hope your day is good.

      Hi Wendy. Thank you for your “vote” on your favorite fabric. We are having a beautiful spring day, so funny how the seasons are mixed up. I don’t think I realized this until somewhat recently, how silly is that! Surely you have quilt shops close by, no?
      I hope you have a great weekend!

    Hi Cindy,
    The fabrics are all beautiful, I couldn’t pick just one.
    And all your outfit’s are beautiful as well, although I think my favorite is Gracie’s outfit.
    I love the sweater with the marbled effect.
    Enjoy your sunny day!

      Hi Carol. Thank you for the compliment on my work. You sparked an idea that I should make a marled sweater for the Little Darlings. Holding two strands of lace yarn together gets about the same gauge as fingering. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it before, thank you, Carol! I am feeling very thankful as we have another sunny day; I’m off for a walk!

      Thank you, Susan! They are gorgeous, aren’t they? My scraps will probably go into a quilt some day. I often think about the quilt I could make with my scraps. The memories would be priceless.
