The project in this particular time period is summer. I wanted to get the fabrics organized for the individual fabric accessories that will be in each room for the summer.
The veranda needs to be bright, quick and not so special as it is open to the elements. I had a few of my own fabrics which work well with the theme fabric I ordered. I needed to buy the available kit to get the colours missing from this older selection and I'm possibly going to actually make the quick quilt that was shown.
While searching in my stash I found a cotton shirt son #3 wore that was his favorite. Actually, he has taught me a lot about colour as he likes colours that are so different from what I would pick. He even coloured everything striped as child. But what makes accessorizing such a joy is personalizing everything.
The kitchen will have the touch of the red cherries but mostly yellow. The stripe is the curtain fabric. The dark aqua in the plaid is perfect for the flow but I won't add any more. I'm pretty certain my kitchen walls won't be yellow but rather taupes and creamy white cabinets. I'm thinking neutral so I can pop colours as the seasons change.
The sitting room is very open to the front dining room and branches off into the kitchen. I need it to be a calm neutral space in our busy lives and I luv the fresh look of vintage fabrics with lots of white. I'll be making sure that there is some aqua to keep the cool, fresh, restful look. The magazine shows Malka Dubrawski 's article on Quiet Design with Quiet Fabrics. It is best used for pillows or a small placemat. I already have an aqua wholecloth lap quilt.
Then the shower curtain in the bathroom will use up the blue 30's fabrics I have but with the greens and aquas from the sampler squares I ordered to bring that aqua flow.
