I am so excited for my friend Felice’s new fabric line, Luna Sol, to start making its way into the world later this month! Today is my turn on a blog tour to share some fun projects made with her fabrics. I’ve also got a fat quarter bundle of the whole line to giveaway – so make sure to make it to the bottom of this post to see the other stops and enter the giveaway!
I went to quilt market in Salt Lake City in May to help Felice out with her booth. This is just one corner of the space she put together – she packed so much color and hapiness into that booth! You can see the Luna Sol look book with lots more amazing projects here. See that bunny pillow? I designed it to match one of the cuties in Felice’s fabrics, and the FPP pattern for it is now available in my shop.
While blender fabrics serve many good purposes, there is a special place in my quilty heart for fabrics that have cute critters and designs. Luna Sol has several prints that are perfect for fussy cutting <3. I started putting some of my favorites in my scalloped hoop necklaces, and couldn’t stop!
There are a total of 19 SKUs in this collection. I’m personally the kind of quilter who usually buys just a few prints from each of several lines rather than entire collections, but these are all so great that its hard for me to pick favorites. There are also 5 coordinating solids chosen from Windham’s artisan cottons, which are similar to shot cottons in that they have different color threads for the warp and weft, so they have a lovely mirage effect in person.
Be sure to check out the other stops for the tour this week:
Sept. 19 – Fabric Mutt with a tutorial for a mini medallion from Felice’s booth
Sept. 20th – Bryan House Quilts with gorgeous photos of a new quilt pattern she made with Luna Sol
Sept. 21st – Stars & Sunshine – that’s me!
Sept. 22nd – Modern Sewciety
Sept. 23rd – Sew Scatterbrained
As I mentioned at the beginning, I’ve got a fat quarter bundle to giveaway! I love Felice’s story behind some of the prints in this line. There are basically these bunnies that live on a version of the moon covered in fields of flowers, but when they want to travel elsewhere they turn into comets to jet around. To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on this post telling me where you’d go if you could travel anywhere. Would it be somewhere on Earth? In space? A make-believe land? For me, it would either be Japan or Pluto (which I will always believe is a planet). I’ll pick a random winner on Friday, and the sweet folks at Windham will send the bundle their way. Lucky!
