Well, we’re not back to school just yet here in Wisconsin, but I’m in full prep mode! I’ve had such a fun summer hangin’ with my girlies, but I think all three of us have reached the tipping point by now. It’s time, you guys. : )
In that spirit, I’ve been working on a quilt that is back-to-school inspired. Melody Miller’s Picnic line for Cotton + Steel was my starting point for this fabric pull—I dropped a few prints, and then started adding new ones from other lines until I had my final selections. (Starting with a complete line is one of my favorite ways to build a color palette—and I love the unexpected directions a fabric pull can go in as you add and subtract!)
I think this will be a fun quilt for the girls to have around the house this time of year, as we get back into the routine of homework and after-school activities.
One of The Bungalow’s signature products are their make-it-yourself umbrella kits. Umbrella frames and patterns are available for purchase, or pick up the September issue of AQS, which includes Bungalow owner Judy Gauthier’s umbrella-making pattern. All you need is the frame and a favorite fabric!
