Chalk & Paint : :

Last week I received a beautiful bundle of Sew Caroline's newest collection for Art Gallery Fabrics, Chalk & Paint, due out in stores this month!

Chalk & Paint Fabric LOVE!

This collection is SO sweet! The colors are warm & soothing and the prints are happy & fun, just a real pleasure to sew with! Right away I knew they'd make a perfect Herringbone QAYG Birthday pillow for my Mama!

Chalk Paint Pillow

She loved it! I only took this one photo before gifting it to her, but I know I'm not at all finished sewing with these pretty fabrics. I cut just one narrow strip from 18 of the 20 prints to sew up this 18"  pillow, and now I'm dreaming of Chalk & Paint quilt plans!

By the end of last week I also decided on a plan for my bold Fleet & Flourish quilt beginning!

A Start

I love when you chime in and share your opinions! Reading through your comments always leads me in a direction that feels right. I'm happy with what I have now, but it's just a start. I'm thinking of using this as a center medallion piece for a new "making rows" style quilt. Hoping to have more to share soon!!

Happy Monday, friends!

  1. I can't wait to see where you take that center medallion piece. I wouldn't have put that mustard yellow and red with the purple print but it looks great! And you always inspire me to make pillows. I'm going to try to sneak away to my sewing machine to start one. :)

  2. What size is the center medallion? And what size are the blocks? It's quite an impressive use of those three striking colors! Thanks for sharing, as always.....

  6. I love your pillow! I really must try binding one sometime...it just looks so tidy! It will be fun to watch your medallion/row take shape, with Fleet & Flourish? Please! It will be awesome! (I am making a monthly Medallion for myself this year too :)

  8. The chalk and paint pillow for your mom is really lovely. I can't wait to see where you take the center medallion. I love the bright saturated colors, I try to always sew with lots of color, while I try to keep in mind who I'm sewing for.
