Quilt in Progress, Dreaming of the Coastline

Coastline fabrics by Sharon Holland for Art Gallery Fabrics

Have you seen the new fabric collection, Coastline, in stores yet? These pretty prints were designed by my friend, Sharon Holland, for Art Gallery Fabrics, and they are a perfect antidote to the current cold, grayness we have outside here in Ohio. The coastal vibe lends a relaxed feel to the prints, but the colors and style are anything but dull. I love the combination of turquoise, navy, salmon and gray.

I have a small sampling of the collection, so I am mixing them with fabrics from Sharon’s previous (and so beautiful) collections, Sketchbook and Gossamer. The colors and style of Coastline are particularly nice with the Sketchbook prints.

I recently started a new little quilt top with these, and I am growing more excited about it as I sew! It started with an idea in my mind and I am kind of just going for it. This can be risky, and I don’t always like the product as much as I liked what I imagined…but this time, I think it is going to work. Of course we have curved piecing, since that is my favorite (-:

Be sure and follow along on Instagram as I share bits of progress on this. Sharon has invited a group of sewers to make projects with the Coastline fabrics, and I will be posting my finished top (wishing to have it all the way finished, but most likely won’t have time). Click here to follow the blog tour and enter for a chance to win some of the pretty fabrics.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend…hope for sewing time! Also, if you like what I am doing here, you might like my pattern “Ring Around”. I also have a pattern, “Gossamer” that features Sharon’s previous collection of the same name.

    Lovely curves! I really like how the sailboat print looks like a block print (from here at least.) Beautiful colors.

    This is such an exciting quilt design Sharon! Can’t wait to see the completed quilt–it’s gonna be so pretty 🙂

    I too love this new fabric line from Ms. Holland! I like your quilt pattern. I’ve never sewn circles. I have purchased the fat quarter bundle with some solids. I have a wonderful seller on Etsy. I now have all 3 of her lines and just love her designs. I look forward to sewing something but right now I just want to look at the colors!

I love comments! thanks for stopping by.
