Designer Select: Aneela Hoey



Sew Stitchy by Aneela Hoey is one of those collections that you just can't pass up. The sweet sewing and embroidery motifs are perfect for almost any project. Aneela chose 12 prints and 3 coordinating Bella solids to create her very own Designer Select Bundle featuring Sew Stitchy and she is here today to chat about it!


Q: What inspired you to pick the colors and designs in your Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle?
A: I have a mini quilt hanging in my kitchen of a rain cloud made up from hexagons that I made a couple of years ago. I really love the colour combination of the hexagons so I used that as my starting point for this collection. It is quite apt now that I think about it as the collection has a hexagon print too! The colours in the select bundle are simply my favourites from the group that work best together.


Q: What are 3 words you would choose to describe this collection, not including any of the fabric designs!
A: Stitchy, intricate, multi-directional

*2 Truths and a Lie*
1.The prints were inspired by the illustrations I did for my book 'Little Stitches'.
2. I tossed my pins to draw them for a realistic look in my Pins print.
3.The fabric Sew Stitchy is printed on is much softer than any of my previous lines.

One of the 3 statements is false. Comment on this post telling me which statement you think is false. Answer correctly and you have a chance to win Aneela Hoey’s Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle!

You have exactly one week from the today, 9/12/12.
Good Luck!

Mrs Pynk said...

I believe it's 3 since i can totally see the inspiration from the book and tossing the pins sounds like something I would do! And from what I've seen, Moda fabric is already super soft and lovely...therefore it must be 3!

number 1 is false. Love that they are multi-directional and those cute colors!!!

Nikki said...

I guess it would be number 1 .. I think its creative to throw the pins for a realistic look.. and I wouldnt imagine she would short change herself by #3 which I suspect and look forward to being true! Love her stuff!

Rachell said...

I think that false is #3. After looking at her fabrics and seeing a few of the pages from her book, I think the first two would be true. And Moda fabric is soft.
What a beautiful color palette- would go perfectly to make a snugglie quilt for my basement sewing room which is pale blue and chilly!
