This week, I put together some mockups using a collection that was suggested by a comment on Instagram and I am now in love with this collection. Since my fabric stash is bursting at the seams, I try not to notice all of the new collections because then I want to buy them all, but I am glad I have seen this one!
It is called Lady Bird and it is by Crystal Manning for Moda. I love colors, the florals, the scale . . . everything. It is just a little different than collections that I normally sew with and it felt like a welcome change.
One thing that I really enjoyed about playing around with this collection is how well it worked in different styles of quilts. It can look traditional but it can also look modern. The obvious choices for mockups for me were Penny, Tessa, or Violet because pretty much any collection will work in those patterns, but I decided to branch out a little bit.
