To be completely honest here, I was quite skeptical about making a solids collection, just because it is so different to what I was used to!... But then I saw the modern quilting trend getting bigger and bigger and I thought the solids available in the market were missing a few colors that would just brighten up the whole thing! And I thought, "Oh well, let's just go for it!"
So finally PURE ELEMENTS came to life... I know that working with solids is not the easiest thing... some of you print lovers (including myself!) may think "How do I make something look cool and interesting with no flowers, no dots, no stripes, no scrolls, no nothing?"
Well I think I can give you a few suggestions! I'm glad to share with you PURE INSPIRATION.
How do you like these?
The pillow features all Pure Elements colors (except Linen White), and it is sooo easy to make... it totally lights up a room with white walls and modern furniture (you know that IKEA armchair you never knew how to bring to life?)
And why not a strippy quilt like the one in the photo? Add some thick hand-stitches in contrasting thread to give it a "handmade", more rustic look.
So what else can you think of? Do you have PURE inspiration?
Well you better be thinking about something because you can actually WIN a pretty juicy bundle of them!
