I’m trying a new thing. I applied to a Paintbrush Studio Fabrics request for people interested in making things with PBS fabric. ( I don’t remember if it was an email request or a link on their website.ETA: it’s a link on their website.) They send an email with their fabric selection and some prompts. Receivers submit descriptions of what they want to make with it and how much fabric is needed. Then PBS sends fabric to the people whose projects were chosen.
I was too busy to consider responding the first two prompts they sent. There were second requests showing quilt pattern possibilities for the fabrics. I figured when I was ready to submit I may be in demand. And this month my idea was created and accepted.
Here is the sketch (each square is 2 inches)
And the fabric arrived today.
I’ve combined pieces from two lines: Gulls Just Wanna Have Fun (designer’s name, other than Paintbrush Studio not given) and Maja Ronnback’s Garden Glory. And Painters’ Palette Solids, of course. I’m rethinking the background shade of blue, but don’t know if I can make a change after a project has been accepted. I’ve asked.
I think the design is a good way to showcase fabrics. I had done something similar with fewer fabrics in the past (here). This seems an easy arrangement to vary. Maybe a series? Time will tell (unless 2 makes a series. )
It is destined for my local guild’s charity program. The size (46 x 46) can be either a child’s quilt or a lap quilt for a nursing home resident.
