The name Sorbet conjures up images of all the different flavoured sorbet ice creams available at my local ice cream parlour here in Hobart . . .
The prints for this fabric line were taken from an old quilt top in my collection, dating back to 1937, however, the colour palette I've chosen for Sorbet brings together a lovely mix of soft, yet bright mix of colour, which teamed with low volume prints can capture a more modern feel that I find myself falling in love with more and more each day.
I thoroughly enjoyed working on this quilt I've called Musk Sticks. The gorgeous Baby Pink Solid from the Riley Blake Designs Confetti Cottons range remind of those sweets we all enjoyed as children, and if truth be known, probably still do!
I've used the wonderful template set by Sue Daley Designs, one of the Classics in the range, which made this quilt a breeze to make.
A perfect 1/8th Riley Blake grey stripe, the Baby Pink Solid and a zinger print, in this case, the black check from Sorbet, teamed with Penny Rose Shirtings and a couple of 30's from their Hope Chest fabric line, all together call for a stunning mix. Kits for the Musk Sticks quilt are available here . .
These prints make me happy and make my heart sing!
Sweet little dresdens on the lovely Sue Daley Linen for Riley Blake make me melt.
And who can go past scrappy churn dash blocks, using a mix of Sorbet, Penny Rose Shirtings and that fabulous stripe!
The pattern for this litte cutie is available here . . .
The wonderful team at Millhouse Collections have put together a gorgeous Look Book featuring Sorbet which showcases all of the fabrics, projects and other designs by Sue Daley using the line.
The delightful Elea Lutz, fellow fabric designer for Penny Rose Fabrics has made the most darling projects using my Sorbet line, so why not jump on over to her blog and take a look around. She's the sweetest thing ever, just like the name Sorbet suggests.
Until next time,
