Paint Party!

Hi! Welcome to my stop on Carrie's Paint Party!

I absolutely love Carrie's Collage collection but I think Paint may top it!
Especially the paint swatch print. I have so many ideas and plans for it.

I posted a little about what I was working on a few weeks ago and am happy to be able to share the whole thing now!

My part of the lookbook was to create a mini art quilt/prayer flag and I immediately thought of houses. Partly because I have been on a patchwork house kick and the other part because of the adorable bookmark she sent. I think I am going to recreate that bookmark in fabric and hang it on my wall. Love it!

The house was fun to sew but took up too much of my time since I didn't use a pattern. That left me with basically half of a day to do the rest!

I did manage to complete it and get it out in time. Of course now that it's gone there is a million other things I wish I would have done around the house instead.

 As a bonus because I wasn't ready to put the Paint fabric away I created a little quilted bag.

I used the quilt as you go method and love how it came out.

Really this is a perfect collection for a variety of projects. I've seen so many different ideas made with Paint and love them all. From quilts to pencil holders.

You really made fantastic use of the fabrics. The paint swatch print is one of my favorites from this line too (though I love them all)! I love the bookmark too! I keep it on my sewing table to remind me to be creative!!! Now I'm thinking I may attempt a quilted version too!!!
