It's Sew Emma Spotlight: Debonaire


hi again jolly jabbers. rachel here from ps i quilt.

if y'all are like me, then you love stars.
i think that stars seem to fit well in both traditional & modern quilting.




take debonaire, for example.
at first glance, one would quickly assume that it's a very traditional quilt.




but if you just tweak your fabric choices . . .
you've got yourselves a very modern quilt.

i love it when designs/patterns can pull off a double life, don't y'all???
:)

let's have a little fun, shall we?!?!
we're going to give FIVE lucky peeps a debonaire pattern of their own.
to enter, go look at fat quarter shop's coming soon page.
pick two fabric lines, one traditional and one modern.
then come back here and leave a comment through rafflecopter telling us which lines you'd like your debonaire quilts to be.

i'll go first . . .
traditional: seaside by october afternoon
modern: flea market fancy by denyse schmidt

i'm excited to see all the different combinations y'all come up with.

rachel griffith

Shop owners, Debonaire can be found at United Notions and Checkers as ISE-111.

Umm...I'm actually not quite sure if I really know the difference between traditional and modern. Because I was going to say that I love for my modern choice to be A Walk in the Woods and for my traditional I was going to say Flea Market Fancy. I have issues with traditional fabrics...sorry.

Kelli said...

I also picked Abigail and Apple of my Eye, but if Abigail isn't traditional enough, i'd be easily persuaded to pick Tonya Whelan's Barefoot Roses!
