Join us for our newest adventure…. SPARKLES & CREAM BLOCK OF THE MONTH 2021… keep reading for all the info below!
Our first low volume CREAM SPARKLE QUILT a few years ago was such an amazingly fun project and a runaway hit with our customers, that we have decided to do it all again… but with a slightly different fabric twist!!
THIS IS A COMPLETELY NEW & DIFFERENT PATTERN FROM THE ORIGINAL CREAM SPARKLE! So if you enjoyed the original CREAM SPARKLE, I think that this would make the best companion project ever!
HERE IS THE STORY…
We loved our CREAM SPARKLE project, as did so many of you and it was certainly a fabulous one… working with all of those soft cream and ivory prints was a dream. But once in a while especially during the assembly I wished there was just a tiny bit more of color… just a little for a bit bit more sparkle. So when I started gathering low volume prints for this new project, I knew I wanted an equal mix and balance of very soft cream prints mixed with cream and ivory prints with a bit more of a sparkle accent color added in. And so this BOM was born around that idea. As you can see in the photo, the fabrics are all LOW VOLUME prints, all based on cream and ivory backgrounds. Many are soft blender prints and many are creams with a little floral or stripe or geometric… just enough for that special SPARKLE!! I am so excited for this new Sparkles and Cream adventure!
For those of you who are unsure what the term “LOW VOLUME” means, here is my definition= low volume refers to prints that don’t have a lot of contrast in them, don’t have a lot of color and are soft and “low” in their volume. Think turning the radio up and then turning it down… these are definitely prints that are all “turned down” and there is very little contrast within it. The quilt is meant to feel washed and soft and vintage due to the cream palette and the simple blocks scattered throughout. The palette will be some of our current favorite FIG TREE creams mixed in with cream prints from a few of my favorite MODA designers, including Brenda Riddle, Minick and Simpson, 3 Sisters, MODA Basics and others. I am not done collecting and will keep adding lovely little cream prints as I find them!
YOU WILL GET MORE THAN 50 DIFFERENT CREAM AND IVORY LOW VOLUME PRINTS FOR THIS PROJECT!!
Each month you will get (4) different cream and ivory ¼ yds. to work with and for a few months, even more than that. You will also get instructions for simple, classic blocks to make with said quarter yards. All classic, all fairly simple, all on the same scale. I am SO EXCITED to work on this soft cream but with a little bit of pop of color project. Hope you will join me!
Given the simple blocks and soft colors [that will not show errors], this is a great quilt for beginners or if someone has been wanting to jump into quilting. Feel free to share with your quilting friends!
We will also be offering FINISHING KITS when our next collection releases in a few months so stay tuned for that. They will need to be ordered separately and will ship in April of next year.
