That’s a wrap! The February 2016 edition of KCW is sadly over, but what a fantastic week it was!

From the darkest winter days came all these spring pinks and yellows too. And on the other side of the color spectrum, saturated blues and aquas. Did you know that Panatone picked pink and blue as the colors of the year? Well actually “rose quartz & serenity.” Either way, I think the hues you chose are prettier than theirs by far.

The colors were fantastic this season, but they really took second place to the gorgeous prints you guys used in your work. Ants! Pandas! Wiener dogs and rainbows! You showcased complicated prints and played up simple ones. That is no small task! Ask any quilter out there. The most popular print by far was this sweet vintage toy kitten print by Melkbrigade. And no wonder! It’s absolutely stunning! You can purchase it at the Dutch shop Bambiblauw.

I hope this week inspired you to sew. The challenge is to simply sit down in front of your sewing machine and sew a little, then maybe a little more. This momentum feeds your creativity: the more you sew, the more ideas come to you, the more you want to sew! I hope that creative momentum stays with you!

 Happy KCW!

    I really enjoyed my first KCW – Thank you!  I’m still working on a project or two that were on my list…  I loved seeing everyone’s incredible projects.  Gosh, there are some talented sewists out there!
