Last week I purchased some of the limited edition Arizona fabric line, designed by April Rhodes from Hawthorne Threads. My real-life friend Megan and I have been drooling over the collection since it was first announced.
I also really wanted to try making some more clothes so I also picked up 4 yards of the Triangle Tokens Voile in Agave since I'm not sure what I'm making yet. I'm leaning towards the Date Night Dress, also designed by April Rhodes. I picked up the pattern awhile back and haven't tried it yet.
The colors in this collection are just wonderful! I love the combination of strong navy with offbeat mustard, soft aqua, and girly peach. And the geometric designs are so fun. These are so soft too. Not like regular quilting cottons. I could easily see them working for clothing as well. I can't wait to get to work with these beauties. I"m leaning towards something inspired by Maureen Cracknell's Arizona quilt. What do you think? What would you make with these?
Be on the look out on Wednesday for day two of the 2014 New Quilt Blogger Blog Hop. I'll be posting along with 24 other talented, new quilt bloggers.
