candy stripe

I nearly forgot about this one! I made this one early in the summer, and even took photos (look, leaves!), but apparently failed to get it on the blog. I pulled this fabric selection back in May while looking for some inspiration. I always enjoy sewing half square triangle blocks, so decided to keep it simple with some hsts for this bunch of fabrics.

I can’t really remember how the pink stripes came about – perhaps just that I realized I had a lot of a pink solid? Anyway, I thought it would be fun to play around with sewing up pink and white strips and then using that fabric as half of the hsts. I like how the stripes line up in places (and definitely don’t in other!). Looking at it now, I feel like maybe I’d like it better with the striped background and maybe other solids rather than all these prints? Maybe it’ll be something I explore later on…

    Overall the rose white stripes give such a warm and vintage feel. It comes across as a very cozy piece. =)
