I am ALL about mauve lately! It's making a comeback!
It's funny how color trends cycle through the years isn't it? Just like fashion trends I guess (jumpsuits?!). It gives us a second or third chance to try all the colors! I used the Cotton and Steel fish print to pull the rest of the colors in the quilt. Most of the prints are a variety of Cotton and Steel with some basics pulled from my stash, and the perfect berry floral from the line Washington Depot by Denyse Schmidt.
I used the fat quarters and made a quick Fat Quarter Friday quilt (the squares quilt from this pattern). I think I'll keep this one for myself...it's my only quilt in these colors and will be a perfect pop of color in my house.
Speaking of my house...I've had oodles of questions about how my cabinets turned out since I shared that I was painting them last October!
I'm happy to say that I lived (barely) to tell the tale of painting my honey oak cabinets! They turned out even better than I had hoped they would. Not gonna lie though, this project was a killer...it took me 2 full weeks and so much hard work (and some tears!). I don't know if I'll ever attempt it again but I'm glad I did it at least once!
I used this free guide pretty much step by step to paint my cabinets, except I only sprayed my doors, and I used a different grain filler.
Anyways...for those of you that asked, yes they are done, and yes I'm glad I did it!
Mostly I'm just glad they are done and I can get back to sewing. Yay!
