Welcome to the Blithe Blog Tour!
Today the blog stops in Central Ohio where I’m sharing my quilt, Pike, that I designed using Katarina Rocella’s Blithe fabric.
Have you ever sewn with Art Gallery Fabrics? They are so soft. The Blithe line has delicate and somewhat muted colors which remind me of winter, especially now that we are fully immersed in the season.
There are many details about this fabric that I love. In several of the prints, metallic copper can be found. There are bold, modern graphic and text prints and soft feminine prints. So much diversity with a unique color palette makes this line interesting and versatile. Two favorite prints are Arcadia Bliss which I used as my quilt back and Glacier Silver Path which reminds me of aspen trees. I spent my school years growing up along the Wasatch Front in Utah and saw those trees often. I like aspens because of their leaves and the unique sound they make when rustling in the wind as well as the soft white bark that graces each tree. As the center piece for each block, this fabric lends a subtle and soft linear element to this traditional jackknife block.
I really enjoyed playing with these fabrics and having free reign to just create! Thank you Katarina and Art Gallery Fabrics for such beautiful fabric!
