If you're familiar with my work, you'd know that blue is my favorite color. I love every shade - from navy to aqua! So when Jessica Levitt asked me to make some samples for Fall Market with her new line Cascade, I was super excited! Plus, I was already a fan of her work - Timber & Kingdom are great lines too.
So check it out.... There are 2 color ways. Of course, I love the blues, but I'm also loving the other colors she added. I think I might need some serious yardage of Splash in Fog ( the 3rd one from the top!) I can see myself using it in a ton of upcoming projects.
Are you ready to see what I made?!?!
This is my Travel Purse. It's a pattern that I have been working off and on for the past year. My inspiration for this purse was my mother's Louis Vuitton purse. She's had this purse as long as I can remember. Ever since I was little. I wanted to make it the same shape but also make it fully functional by adding pockets on the sides. I also made the straps long enough so that it can be placed on your shoulder. The entire bag is all patchwork - 2" squares, quilted and fully lined. This one I made for Jessica is definitely the best one yet! I'm happy to say that the pattern will available for sale early next year.
I also made Jessica a little selvage pouch. Where else is she going to put her make up?!?! It matches her bag and it has her name all over it = so no one can steal it! ;)
Here's a tutorial on how you can make one.
Last but not least, here's a pillow I made. The pattern is one that I created called "Waves". I couldn't resist making "Waves" with Cascade. I had to play on the whole water theme.... It's made mostly of strips and is a great scrapbusting pattern. I made this pillow last because I knew there would be many usable pieces from the other projects.
It was quilted with what I call 'lazy diamonds' = Staight lines + Diagonal lines = diamonds on a slant. It looks like they're lying down, hence the name 'lazy diamonds'. This pattern will be available for sale as a quilt pattern in Spring 2015.
There are more Cascade projects in her look book! And they're all amazing!
