When I first opened the bundle of Coastline fabric that my friend Sharon sent me, I literally gasped. It was like all my days spent beside the Pacific Ocean were sitting there in front of me.
I chose the Brass Ring Pillow from my book, Sew Organized for the Busy Girl, for my tour project. The quiet prints in this collection make a great background for the more saturated ones that shine in a range of tropical colors. It's such a different look from the low volume version I did in my book, and I absolutely love it. This pillow looks like it would fit in perfectly at a beach house or poolside cabana.
I adore Sharon's Tropical print, shown here in the Bronze colorway, which I chose for the pillow backing. It looks equally amazing in the Breeze colorway, which incidentally also comes in voile. Wouldn't this make a stunning summer dress?
Be sure to visit Sew Not Perfect tomorrow for another great Coastline project. Sharon is also giving away a fat quarter bundle of this collection through Instagram at the end of the tour. All you have to do is repost a picture of your favorite Coastline tour project with the hashtag #CoastlineFabricsGiveaway. You can enter as many times as you like (yes, it's okay to have more than one favorite!), and international entries are welcome. Sharon will announce a random winner on Instagram when the tour comes to a close. You can visit her blog here for all the details about the tour and giveaway.
Meanwhile, I think this pillow and I need to hang out by the pool for a while. It's too cold to swim, but I can sip my iced tea and dream of warmer days to come...
