Hi there,

How is your week going so far?  I hope you are getting some creative summer sewing time!

 

The sewing space in my new house still resembles a building site at the moment.  I can’t wait to get all my fabric out on display again!

 

In the meantime, I can show you another of my summer magazine makes.

This is Lotus Flower Quilt, made using fabrics from the delicious Art Gallery Boho Fusions and Abloom ranges.

 

I instantly fell in love with these fabrics – they speak to my closet hippy/bohemian side!

The colours are saturated and intense, and the strong mix of floral and graphic patterns make this a vibrant collection.  In fact, it was a lotus flower shape in one of the prints that inspired my design.

The fabrics lent themselves to a bold, large scale design, so I drew a large lotus flower and created a positive/negative effect by switching up the prints.

The quilt finishes at 72″ x 91″, a great single bed size.  In fact, it is on my daughter’s bed in her new bedroom, serving as the design inspiration for the rest of her room!
