Jenny's Pick Of The Week - Wrenly by Valori Wells

Hey there! If you're asking what happened to Emma Jane......well.....she's fine. But she was getting less and less "agreeable" during the weekly photo shoots for "Emma's Pick Of The Week." I'm not going to say Emma is retired.....and she'll definitely continue to make frequent appearances on the blog.....but I think she wanted to go on sabbatical for just a little while so I'm going to take over for my sweet little puppers.

Sooooo, if I could just drop everything right now (all that pesky paperwork and bookkeeping and laundry and stuff) I'd start playing with the brand new, bright, bold and modern Wrenly by Valori Wells for Free Spirit Fabrics. It's full of birds and blooms in shades of cobalt, cerulean, mandarin, cherry and citrus. We're still waiting on the arrival of four of these fabrics (the multicolored Gypsy colorway) but there's still plenty to play with as we wait for Gypsy's arrival!
These are some of my favs from the Cobalt colorway.....
I'm really thinking that the top one called Cobalt Bloom would make an excellent Wrap Dress (by Favorite Things)......
And these are some fabrics from the Cherry and Mandarin colorway that I'm drooling over.....
I would love to make a bright, summery City Market Tote by Kati Cupcake using these fabrics.....
And wouldn't the whole collection make an amazing San Francisco Window Boxes quilt.....
And once Gypsy gets here I plan on making a Honey Girl Dress.....
Using the Gypsy Wildfield fabric.....
Would I sound like a total geek if I said that I think THAT dress in THAT fabric would be absolutely dreamy? I'd be like a multicolored dandelion floating in the breeze!

So, that's what I'm crushing on right now. And I'll obviously let you know once the Gypsy colorway arrives (hopefully that will be at the end of July!).

Have a great weekend and Happy Sewing,
Jenny

They are all really lovely, but that cobalt blue sort of jumps out of the picture!

Gorgeous post. Tell Emma Jane I've heard it's hard being a celebrity and that we miss her.

The fabrics are so soft and I have a quilt idea in mind with some half square triangles.

Thanks for the color combination idea.

SEW colorful.
