I shared yesterday how much I love the mix of fireflies, moths, and colors in the Twilight fabric collection. Today I want to gush a bit about the florals. They are so soft, feminine, and well… dreamy! I love that the flowers have vivid splashes of color and are contrasted against the beautiful shades of the night sky. For this month’s monogram, I chose a dark blue brushstroke-solid fabric that stands out in bold contrast to the soft colors I chose for the pillow. The combination is simply DREAMY! I confess, I made this month’s pillow for myself because the Twilight fabrics are my favorite! I hope you love sewing with them as much as I do!
Some of my favorite childhood memories are the summer nights I spent catching fireflies with my brothers. It always felt like capturing a bit of magic in a jar. When I first saw the Twilight fabric collection from 1 Canoe 2 I was instantly taken back to those memories. The artwork in this fabric collection is so inspiring! In fact the mix of fireflies, moths, and the colors of summer nights inspired me to create an appliqué jar so that I could once again capture a bit of firefly button magic in a jar!
