So I have two of these new ones in the living room. The fabric is Dear Stella, which I got here with some of my Project Run & Play winnings. (Though they seem to be out of this particular print.) I wanted something light and summery. We live in a little apartment that we can't paint, and at first I thought I had picked something too dull against our boring off-white walls. But after a day or two I started to love the way they looked. It's a great neutral feel that allows for all kinds of colorful quilts and pillows.
This is what the old panels looked like. They were my very first sewing project almost 5 years ago! It's a pretty fabric, but I just got so sick of all the brown. Time for a change.
at work, I had the great pleasure of unwrapping Anna Maria Horner's new Field Study line straight off the UPS truck. I could not stop obsessing over these prints and all the things I wanted to make with them. If you aren't convinced, just know that they are stunning in person. I managed to leave work without buying a single bit of it, but as you can see I made some tentative plans. Of course, not all of these will come to fruition, but it sure is fun to fantasize.
And I really want to make a quilt with these softer and oranger colors. Sooooooo gorgeous.
