Colour and Fabric

I'm on a bit of a colour bent at the moment.  My Mum came to visit us this weekend and I had a great time rearranging the cushions and bedding at Freedom to show her my design idea for her bedroom!!

I am really enjoying daylight savings in the afternoons and we've had a couple of beautiful sunsets like this one that I managed to catch this afternoon.  I love the way the pink plays across the top of the clouds on the blue sky.  Of course, by the time I had gone and changed the camera lens to get a closer shot, the pink was gone.
While I had the camera out, I thought I'd show you a couple of the new arrivals at our place recently.  Up first is the gorgeous "Theory" which is by Kristian A Howell for Anthology Fabrics.  I've been looking at these for a long time, and was ordering some other things (not shown here just in case someone sees something that they shouldn't!) so I got a couple of fat quarters.
Another favourite designer of mine is Sweetwater and I just love their Hometown range - I have no idea what I'm going to do with it, so I got a couple of charm pack and some fat quarters of designs that I really loved.
I've also been adding to my yellow and grey collection so here are a couple of pieces that came in the envelope that the hometown was in.
Here is the full collection of yellow and greys... this is some of my stash, some prints from my LQS, and some prints from the US
I think I'll stop there for today before you all think that the only thing I do is buy fabric!! I have been sewing but I can't show the project yet.  I'm trying to decide how to quilt this secret project at the moment but will show it to you soon!


  1. Anthology, Sweetwater, and grays with yellow... EXACTLY what I've been collecting! I don't have all the prints you do, but many are similar. How about that!? Now we just need to have our own sew-in, right? Thanks for the pretty picture of your sunset. We don't see them looking like that around here.

  2. Hi Pinky, I am working on a yellow and grey quilt at the moment. It is such a lovely colour combination. Great to be back in touch after all these year! Amelia
