Hello Friends! I’m excited to share with you a bit about my new collection, Sunnyside Up.
If you peek into my sewing room, you will quickly see that I love working with a warm, happy palette. In fact, that is probably one of the comments that I hear most from quilters, “Your fabrics just make me feel happy.”
I also love when I can mix and match lines because I love a scrappy quilt.
Sunnyside Up features a palette that will pair very well with any of my other lines. I am also excited to be adding a beautiful, orchid purple shade to this fabric line. You can just get a glimpse of it below peeking out in the top left of the photo below. It pairs so well with the other warm shades.
And, with the addition of purple, I have been enjoying working with a rainbow of color – and, oh how I love a fabric rainbow!
See that diagonal gingham stripe there on the far right? It’s the perfect binding fabric. I always design some sort of stripe into every fabric line because I love a striped binding.
Another fun addition to this line is the Sunny Panel. The panel features 8 different motifs and measures 24″ x 44″. The motifs are the perfect jumping off point for pillows, bags, quilts, aprons….you name it!
I love it so much I designed this Sunny Sampler – it uses the Sunnyside Up panel, two charm packs, five 1/8-yard pieces, 2 yards of background, and 1 yard of the gray gingham stripe. The quilt measures 57″ x 69″ finished. It’s also available as a kit from Moda.
This is Delighted – I machine-appliquéd the scrappy leaves onto a dark background. The leaves were all cut from one Sunnyside Up Layer Cake.
Hello Friend! That gray gingham stripe – it might be my favorite stripe ever. Hello Friend uses 12 Fat Quarters and it measures 54″ x 71″.
I use a lot of Bella Solids in my quilts and these are the color numbers for the solids that work with Sunnyside Up.
If you have purchased my Aurifil Sunny Stitches 12wt. thread collection, it coordinates perfectly with Sunnyside Up. And, I’ll let you in on a secret…those panels I mentioned above are beautiful as the centerpiece of a hand-quilted pillow. These 12wt. threads can also be used for machine-quilting – regular or with a Sashiko machine.
And if that isn’t enough, there are also some beautiful products designed with Sunnyside Up.
The Mini Notes are so much fun, and perfect for jotting down quilt ideas. The set of pencil boxes are perfect for organizing my sewing supplies.
Sunnyside Up fabrics and patterns are in shops now.
I’ll be back soon to share Strawberry Jam, my newest collection for Moda. It will be in shops next Spring… along with two other Moda collections that I’ve mixed with it.
The way that little “good” bit fell in the center of my snippets tickled me so.
