Hello Luscious by BasicGrey
BasicGrey asked me to make another one of their canvas samplers done in the same faux-cathedral windows style as my last two but this time using their brand new line of fabrics called Hello Luscious. I just love that name. I chose to use four fabrics that were primarily aqua for the backs of the circles and the various prints in green, pink and red for the "windows." All but one of the buttons that I used are also by BasicGrey.
This is the larger sized "Rook" canvas measuring 16" x 20." The larger canvas allows the fabric samples to shine a bit more than the smaller version I made initially. It also made the ironing easier with less burning of my fingertips!
This canvas will be in the BasicGrey booth in Houston later this month. How I wish I could be there with it! I have truly enjoyed working with this design for the Rook canvas but I was delighted when asked to design a second canvas anyway I liked. I was ready to try something new! I will show you the second canvas tomorrow.
Thank you to BasicGrey for allowing me to share pictures of these samplers because otherwise, my blog would be quiet as I have been busily working on nothing but for the past number of days!
