Gloaming Hop: Day 1

Welcome to Day 1 of our Gloaming hop! These next few days are filled with plenty of quilty inspiration using Shelley's Gloaming collection--we hope you enjoy it! 

 Below are sneak peeks for today's designers--use the links to see more as well as find out how you can enter to win a fat quarter bundle of Gloaming fabrics for yourself on each designer's post!

Cara Cansler @Sew_Colorado
Hi! I'm Cara! The Gloaming fabrics reminds me of water waves in the evening. I wanted to make a quilt to show the intersection of day meeting night, of water meeting the shore, and sunlight meeting pools along the beach. I saw this as a chance to capture not just a place but a time.

Becky Jorgensen of Patchwork Posse@patchwork_posse
Hi! I'm Becky from Patchwork Posse.  Quilters don't like to sew alone- so we create easy to follow quilt alongs, a planner to keep your projects organized, and a community to help make quilting part of your every day. 
I met Shelley at Fall Quilt Market. What a delight it was to see all the quilts in her collection as well--beautiful! I chose a pattern that I had sewn up previously, but knew her fabric would be a perfect fit for a new, kind of scrappy version.  The blues and fresh bright colors that compliment each other are wonderful. As you can see, the full version of the quilt hasn't been revealed.

To have a little fun during National Quilt Day on March 17th, we are going to be sewing a mystery quilt along together.  You are welcome to sew along, as we just got started. Find the details here.  The full reveal will be on March 27th. 
I'm so excited to be part of the hop and can't wait to see what others have done with the fabric.  There are so many possibilities. The colors and prints are easy to work with and coordinate beautifully together- so no matter your pattern choice, it will turn out stunning.
