My Photo Stash - Magnificent Sunset
August 20, 2018
Hello my fellow makers!
It's been a while since I've written here, and I've missed sharing and chatting with you about all things fabric. This time I'm back to share a new source of inspiration that I've found for my personal projects and that's keeping me joyfully busy these days. I will call it "My Photo Stash." It all started with a photograph I took on a day in which the forecast said it would be nothing but grey skies and pouring rain. I took advantage of the fact that the sky was clear (contrary to what the forecast predicted) to hop on a bike and ride around for a bit... And then the sunset did this:
It is not the best quality photograph, but I love that it reminds me of how nature constantly amazes us. The combination of colours is so striking that it gave me the idea of taking a moment we captured on camera and translating it into fabric choices for the making of an heirloom. Wouldn't it be beautiful to gift someone a photo of a shared moment, and something made inspired by it? Even a bundle of the fabrics next to the photo. I would love receiving that.
For my interpretation I chose seven colours from our Pure Elements line (from top to bottom): Ocean Waves, Tranquil Waters, Very Berry, Apricot Crepe, Empire Yellow, Purple Pansy & Purple Wine.
I would love to know if you've used photos as inspiration for quilts or projects (maybe garments, too?). I am looking forward to seeing your own "Photo Stashes" and please stay tuned to see the project I will be making with these fabrics. If you love this "Magnificent Sunset" combination let me know in the comments and I might do a giveaway of this fabric selection.
Rock n' sew!
