If Life Gives You Lemons
I hope you are doing well. This challenge was very fun to make. My parter was Catherine and she mentioned that the inspiration for my piece would be lemons 🍋. I often share photos of my garden and you know I live in California so lemons a featured often since they are so abundant.
When it came to decide how to create my piece I remember seeing this piece of fabric in my stash that featured lemons and the colors were so vibrant and happy. It was a very small piece of fabric and I don’t know the designer or anything about it. I recently inherited an abundant lot of fabric and scraps from a friend’s mom who was downsizing her sewing room because she was moving to a smaller house and closing down her handmade apron business. Thus all of the fabrics are so varied and interesting.
I made the offset flying geese to showcase the print and also trying to make do with the small amount of fabric I had. I really like the simplicity and the vibrancy of the colors. I think I’ll make a spot in my kitchen for it.
Yesterday I received in the mail a package from Catherine and it contained the most beautiful fabric from Liberty London and it has lemons on it. While I didn’t get to use the fabric she sent me for this piece I can’t wait to make something with it. It is absolutely gorgeous! Thank you Catherine .
