After my fabric announcement and the hustle and bustle leading up to it, it hadn’t really sunk in that I have my own fabric collection until I finally got some one-on-one, quiet quilting time with my fabrics. It felt pretty amazing!
When designing this collection, it was challenging having to choose which prints we would move forward with and which didn’t make the final cut. I felt like I was abandoning some of my favorite prints. But after spending time actually using the fabrics and making quilt blocks out of them, I am extremely happy with the variety of solids, small and large prints as well as the final color selection for the High Tea collection!
Having been inspired by vintage china dishes and tea cups, I would describe my High Tea fabrics to be a very delicate collection. They are softer colors, but the butter cream (yellow) and brown sugar (taupe) adds warmth to the collection, and the red gives it that extra pop of color that brings out all the strawberries and florals.
For my first quilt using High Tea, I wanted to go with a classic block to go with the vintage theme. I chose a churn dash block, and I absolutely love the result! I will eventually be providing a free pattern for this quilt, so be on the lookout! =)
Red is my favorite color, so this collection had to have red!
I am patiently waiting for more of my sample fabrics to ship to me so that I can finish this quilt. As soon as I get those, I’ll post another update on my progress.
I gotta say that it sure feels nice to be quilting again! Everything leading up to this didn’t leave much room for sewing. =)
I hope you enjoyed seeing my progress. =) Looking forward to sharing more on this one!
Thanks for stopping in and reading me- have a wonderful weekend ahead!
