Juniper Blog/IG Tour

Hi there

Welcome to my stop on Jessica VanDenburgh's Instagram/blog hop for her new line with Windham Fabrics, Juniper!

From snails and dragonflies to tiny, adorable mushrooms, Juniper is a sweet, whimsical collection.  You can check out the full collection on the Windham Fabrics website in more detail here.

To show off the collection, I opted to make a set of all 5 sizes of the Clam Up bag pattern from ByAnnie. The pattern makes a great gift, and it's quick to sew!  Another reason I love this pattern is because it includes instructions for using quilted fabric, un-quilted fabric, and for using Slicker, a fusible vinyl product to give the bag an easy-to-wipe clean interior.  I chose to quilt the fabric using a 3/4" grid set at a 45 degree angle which should probably come as no surprise to anybody that might follow me on social media.  LOL.  The simplicity of the grid quilted on the ByAnnie's Soft and Stable foam stabilizer is super for adding texture without distracting from the prints or colors of the fabric.  40wt Aurifil thread is my thread of choice to add the perfect blend of strength and texture.  With 270 colors and multiple thread weight options, I love how I can find the right thread for my projects with Aurifil.

Yes, I really did use all of these colors!
Without further ado, here's a pic of each bag that includes the part # for the fabrics and the colors of 40wt Aurifil thread that I used:

Extra Small - 51318-2 and 51918M-3 with Aurifil colors 2311, 2435, 2520
Small - 51315-3 and 51317-7 with Aurifil colors 2311, 5002, 2423
Medium - 51318-1 and 51319M-9 with Aurifil colors 2783, 1320, and 1231
Large - 51316-4 and 51317-6 with Aurifil colors 2311 and 1148
Extra Large - 51314M-1, 51315-2, and 51315-1 with Aurifil colors 2783, 1320, and 4225

And look how adorable the Clam Up bags look when nested together!
