Fun With Fabric – “Enchanted” by Sarah Fielke

A few weeks ago, I answered a call from Windham Fabrics, who were looking for people to help out with items for their Spring Market booth and Catalogues.  Lucky for me, they chose to send me Sarah Fielke’s new range “Enchanted” to make whatever I pleased!  I was a little excited and was thrilled when I opened the package to find some beautiful, bright and divine prints to work with!  It took me a couple of days to decide what I would make, but I think I chose wisely…..

“Peacock Garden in Spring” is perfect for the Boho bag, because of it’s big bold print.  The colours really have to be seen to be appreciated.  I teamed it with “enchanting stripe in Autumn” for the top and handles, which is, to me, like a mix of love hearts and beanstalks!

The “enchanting stripe in Summer” is the most perfect shade of lime ever!  Given we are just heading in to our coldest months here in Australia, I think these bright colours are just what we need!

I also whipped up a cushion using the peacock print – which is absolutely perfect for fussy cutting!  The peacock centre block was cut precisely 6.5″ square.  Nice one!  The pink solid was also supplied by Windham and is gorgeous quality.

I used my trusty Aurifil #2024 to piece and also quilt around the star.  Some echoing around the points and then free motion swirls for texture.

And a simple envelope enclosure on the back using “Enchanting Sprigs in Autumn”.  Another gorgeous little print with the tiniest hint of pink.
Now – Sarah tells me the full range will be hitting patchwork and quilting stores from June/July!  So be sure to keep an eye out and get yourself some!  You can check out the full range HERE.
I’m linking up – You can too!
