Each month Henry Glass Fabrics selects one of their new fabric lines and puts out a call for a challenger. Loving the Clean Living line, Victoria (a mid-century modern aficionado) responded with her portfolio and was selected!
Ideas were everywhere...
Which lead to..
The bundle of fabrics arrived from Henry Glass and I had a wonderful Community Theatre friend stage the grand opening.
With fabrics now in hand, I got down to the designing and decided to incorporate a more spiky clock and my vintage San Ignacio Stock Pot (which is actually from the 60's-70's) that reminded me of the enamelware of the period.
Next came the prototypes:
A few tweaks, "quilty math," and mustering the courage to cut into my "not-yet-in-stores" Henry Glass fabrics, and some snow-induced stay-home-and-sew days...and I had a flimsy ready for Kristy to quilt.
Update 1: Henry Glass put a nice "completed" post on their blog.
Update 2: A friend commented how nice the quilt looked in my kitchen, but I pointed out that I couldn't keep it covering my french door, and the only other place with wall space is above the french door...so like any good quilt maker...
