Just wanted to let you know that I have a post on the Birch Fabrics blog today with the tutorial for the pillows I made using their new Fort Firefly fabric collection. It is probably not a surprise to anyone who reads my blog that I absolutely LOVE these fabrics and I was so excited that Birch sent me a FQ bundle for the tutorial. The colors, the designs, the details, the gorgeous floral blender prints - seriously, I love everything about it! And yes, that is my actual opinion.
I made the three pillows for my oldest daughter's bedroom and I am not sure yet who is going to get the quilt (I'll post more about the quilt later this week.) I'm not sure if I'll call it a large baby quilt or a small lap quilt - there have been some major negotiations going on here as to whose room it will live in.
If my middle daughter has her way though, she would have me order more of the fabric and make her a large quilt. While I'm not sure when and if that will happen, I did play with some possible mockups using the same block that I used for the pillow.
First up is if I had used the blocks in the finished sizes used in the tutorial on the Birch blog.
But then I would have to choose just 3 of the adorable novelty prints?!?! So, then I thought maybe still keep the blocks all different shapes and sizes but make more of them.
And maybe with a dark yellow background:
I made these mockups and the diagrams for the tutorial using TouchDraw. However, after reading in the quilt photography workshop comments and links about how many of you use photoshop, I decided to download the trial. I haven't used it much for photography editing yet but I did use it to make this last mockup - this would be if I made all the blocks the same size. The scale is off for the background prints - I'll have to figure out how to fix that next time - but I like being able to see the quilt using the actual fabrics.
Oh, the possibilities . . .
Love love love!!!! Those fabrics are adorable and I love what you did with them!ReplyDelete
