Sweet Starlet and Adele are the Perfect Pairing

I recently asked you on Facebook whether you choose the fabric or pattern first when starting a new project. I'd like to do away with the "chicken or the egg" question today, and show you a pattern and fabric collection that go hand-in-hand.

The Sweet Starlet Quilt is beautifully feminine. I love the contrast between the small floral designs in soft colors with the sharp points in the symmetrical pattern of the quilt.

When I saw this pattern, it was obvious that Adele is the perfect collection to be paired with it.

Yardage and Fat Quarter Set available

Adele features similar prints as the original collection used in the quilt. In Adele you'll find paisleys, a range of florals from small to large, and tone-on-tone prints. The shades of pink, orange and green in the collection are trendy colors today but their presentation makes them pleasing to the traditional quilter and the modern sewist alike.

Perfect Pairing: Adele and Sweet Starlet

My daughters' room is decorated in shades of pink and green, and this would be the perfect quilt to make for the older one when she's ready for a "big girl" bed. Would you make this quilt for yourself or as a gift? If a gift, who would be the lucky recipient?

Until next time,
