Hawaii. Need I say more? Mister Domestic’s new Aura fabric line for Art Gallery Fabrics was designed and created from a trip to Hawaii. When I see it and sew with it, I feel like I’m IN Hawaii! It’s like Mister Domestic is giving us each a little slice of Hawaii right in our homes!
When I picked which fabric I wanted to use from Mister Domestic’s new Aura line, I had such a hard time narrowing it down. Here are all the fabrics from the new collection:
I finally decided to go with Hawaiian Honu Dusk (the cute sea turtle print in blue), Aloha Spirit Habiscus (pink geometric / floral design), an Art Gallery Pure Element solid called Ocean Waves, and for my background fabric, I chose Loulu Fans Sand (an off-white sandy looking fabric). The funnest addition for me was choosing the backing. I decided to go with Laki Island Daylight, and I LOVE the bright blues and the florals. I think it was the perfect choice, if I may say so myself. 😉 . It’s what really gives the quilt that ‘island’ feel.
It was fun to see the colors and quilt top come together. I love how Mathew’s fabrics bring such a warm and happy feel to your quilt. Now I just need to get to a beach with this quilt!
It’s been SO fun working with this new fabric line. You definitely want to get your hands on some of this fabric. And if you’re smart, you’ll buy a bundle with each of the fabrics in it, because the hardest part for me was narrowing down which fabrics NOT to use! It’s also the perfect time to start making a quilt for the summer that you can bring to the beach with you!
