Hi my loves! Can you believe that, along with the weekend, another month has come to an end? Amazing how quickly this year is going by. If we don’t program ourselves to do a little craft every week, we won’t be able to practice. And how is your routine? Can you quilt a little every week? There are patterns that are great for this, we can do it in parts, one block at a time.
This is the case of Chocolate & Cherries, a very beautiful quilt and, as much as it doesn’t look like it, it’s easy to make. Quilts are already part of our home, in the decoration of different environments. Perfect for decorating or for snuggling up on days when we need comfort. In the bedroom, the quilts look beautiful, leaving the environment well-groomed and elegant. What you can do to complement the decor is to assemble pillows with the same print, same color palette or pattern.
Think that each block can be a pillow, after you finish the quilt you will already be professional in making the login cabs, just make a few more and have beautiful cushions. Did you see that in this pattern we have a mix of many prints? When choosing fabrics, it may seem like they don’t match, but as the stripes in this pattern are narrower, not all of them stand out. That’s why you should pay attention to the colors, that they match each other.
