I am in love. I know that all who are interested in fabric, in decorating or dishes and tablescapes understand this love. You see something and your heart skips a beat, the orchestra plays background music in your head and you cannot contain the smile from breaking out on your face.
Those that know me know that I am a pink girl, but, periwinkle makes my heart sing. With pure white it is clean, fresh and sparkles like the reflection of sails on the ocean.
This is what got my heart racing today. Marcus Brothers Fabrics’ - By the Sea. Pure white background with multiple shades off periwinkle and blue. There are six stripes across the widths of fabric. It is printed in a double mirror image, so the stripe has a lot of movement.
A couple of close up shots.
The little seaweed stripe would be great as sashing.
The periwinkle starfish as a background?
Other pieces pulled from the store to play with in designing a quilt.
Of course, the stripe would also make a fabulous table runner with coordinating napkins of the white with periwinkle starfish.
What made your heart sing today?
Stitch at you soon,
