Today is my stop on the Charleston Blog Tour! Charleston is a new art deco line by Revive from Timeless Treasures. I used my Clutched pattern and did some alterations to make a few different sizes. Make sure you read on for the TWO giveaway chances!!
I love art deco shapes and thought this print was perfect. The metallic is subtle and really pretty. It would make a great background for a quilt. The line is full of art deco inspired prints in blues and oranges with lots of metallic accents. You can see the full collection here.
I lined the clutches with a print with a hint of blue. There is something weddingesque about the clutches so I thought “something blue” made sense. These will be a gift for my next friend to get married;)
Clutched is written for an 8×3 hard frame. I bought a 6×3 and 4.5×3 frame to test out. I removed 2″ for the 6×3 frame and 3.5″ for the 4.5×3 frame. I buy my frames here.
I removed the inches from the center of the pattern and left everything else the same. I tested out altering the boxed corners, but ended up not altering it. I was quite happy with the shape as is.
Timeless Treasures is giving away THREE fat quarter bundles of Charleston. You can enter and read more about that here.
