Carrie from Such Designs is at it again with her second fabric collection for Windham Fabrics. Her newest beauties are reminiscent of the first collection with some beautiful new additions that encompass her Paint Collection.
Gracie is collecting quilts to donate to Phoenix Children’s Hospital for her Mitzvah Project and I promised I’d make her the first quilt if she picked out a pattern. I made a simple quilt modeled after Pippa Quilts Sidewalk Quilt that she found on Pinterest. I have made one of these out of the Paint Collection for a benefit for Eric’s son that’s next weekend and the squares are all cut for Gracie’s quilts.
I call it Painting the Sidewalk and really love this quilt design and the fabrics I got to play with. I had a lot of fun working with the new fabrics and have to say that my favorites were the Schmutz pinwheels, Spackle paint chips and Periwinkle weave. I didn’t take a picture of the back, but I used the Periwinkle weave which is unbelievable in person and attached some periwinkle solid to the bottom. Made for a lovely effect.
To be entered to win a charm pack of each fabric from paint Collection, go to my Gracie’s Stitch-vah Mitzvah blog and leave her a comment of encouragement, then come back here and leave me a comment. (I know, I know! Lots of work, but it’s for a good cause!) I’ll pick a random winner on Monday night (Finney’s birthday!) at 10pm PST. Gracie’s blog a very young blog with few posts, but her Bat Mitzvah isn’t until next February, so she has time to pull it together! If you want to make a quilt for her, let her know!
