Daily Inspirations and Adventures

Neon is back in.

My Daily Candy email today was titled “Sew Modern, So Simple”.  “So fitting” for our blog today because . . . well, you’ll see why!   Carrie Strine is the quilter that is profiled – have you ever heard of her?

Daily Candy states:

“Strine reinterprets traditional techniques and patterns to give her functional art a contemporary feel. Her most modern work includes linen bed covers, throws, and place mats with DayGlo border sand crisscrossing neon orange, lime, and pink threads.  Heirloom-quality pieces inspired by the Amish communities around her native Lancaster, PA, get more subtle updates.”

Cool, right? 

These look right up Mom-mom’s alley

I LOOOVVVEEE this blanket and pillow.

 

And I figured you would love this one (sold out – but only $525!)

Say hello to Mom-mom and Pop-Pop for me!  Hope you had a safe trip.
