Finally the evil virus has left my body after two weeks of feeling literary sick and tired all the time. I hate being ill! It's great to be back to normal and feeling inspired again! My friend Reetta asked me to make some soft houses for her shop, so that's what I've been up to today. Look at the doll she's been making, she is such a talented artist!
You see the house-to-be that is on top of my pile? It is made from a vintage fabric (an old pillow case) that I picked up at the flea-market last Summer. It is probably from the 1960's. There is something about the very unusual colour combination that appeals to me very much.
And when a fabric inspires me I start to plan a quilt! This is a very good way to try out new colour combinations and a good method if you want to become a braver quilt designer! So I take a closer look at my vintage fabric piece and what do I find: pea soup, aqua, light pink, violet, baby blue and a hint of white... And look how many fabrics I have in my stash that want to go into this quilt! Do you hear them whisper triangles...? Or was it rectangle?
I hope you are having an inspiring Monday!
