Just Because I like! It’s not hard to guess that at the moment I’m into pretty pinks and blues combined with the texture of worn out white furniture. So easy to live with.
Playing with pattern in fabric, paper and objects is so much fun. I love the challenge of combining different colours and patterns to create a mix that works. Getting the right balance and including just one slightly off beat pattern to create the wow factor. It’s incredible how that one piece added to the mix works to keep a display, quilt or room from being ordinary. This love affair with pattern was mostly inspired from my quilting days and in particular from a workshop I did with the lady who made the quilts for the movie ‘How to make an American Quilt. I can’t remember her name and I have her book here somewhere, but she was a fabulous little lady full of energy and an inspirational teacher. I learnt so much in that weekend workshop and now apply that to most projects I do. So enjoy the mix and don’t be afraid of adding one little something to gain the wow factor.
