Q: What was your inspiration behind Honeysweet and your Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle?
A: I was inspired by a gorgeous but tattered vintage quilt that I unearthed at our local flea market recently. Honeysweet feels like a classic California Autumn. Filled with a beautiful mix of soft and saturated Autumn colors, the collection centers around deep raspberry reds and strong persimmon oranges and is accented by olive toned greens and rich aquas. It is anchored by neutral browns and is set on an entire array of ivories and the softest of peaches. If there were such a thing as an Autumn rainbow, it would be filled with these colors! A perfect autumn palette with some wonderful groupings that can be pulled out as accents or on their own.

Q: What are 3 words you would choose to describe Honeysweet?
A: 1. Autumn Rainbow
2. Rich
3. Versatile

Q: What do you plan to make using Honeysweet?
We have made so many things with this collection already- quilts- a lot of quilts-, bags, coin purses, accessories - but believe it or not I am somehow not tired of it yet. Maybe that's because this is easily my favorite time of the year and so these colors are speaking to me loudly right now LOL!

Personally I am in the midst of pulling out the oranges to mix in with blacks and greys to make a vintage Halloween flavored quilt [and kit of course]. I am also using the oranges to mix in with some cream Snuggle fabric to try to make an infinity scarf for myself. I love how the cream and oranges play together and I am hoping that the snuggle will make it soft enough to loop around and be a warm snuggle scarf. You will have to check back with me about how that one goes.

*2 Truths and a Lie*
1. Orange is my favorite color right now. I really love it paired with aqua.
2. My favorite food is ice cream. I could eat it in any flavor combo.
3. Christmas is my favorite holiday but Halloween comes in a close second.
