Garden By The Sea

I have been eyeing this print from Secret Garden by Sandi Henderson.  It's so pretty and swirly.  I especially love it in the Speckle color.  I was window shopping at Fresh Squeezed Fabrics and the next thing you know I was day dreaming of lunching in Carmel, Ca.  Carmel, officially named, Carmel-By-The-Sea is a little seaside town with cute shops, yummy cafes and sweet pots of geraniums everywhere.  The houses in the village are known for their secret gardens.

This is my daydream, "Garden By The Sea"

This is the last day to enter my Little Apples giveaway.  Good luck everyone!!  I'll see you tomorrow when I announce the winner.


  1. What will you make with that pretty collection?

  2. I love it when you show custom groupings!

  3. I just love your fabric daydreams!

  4. My parents honeymooned in Carmel in 1960. Love your palette.

  5. I second what Ellen said, love the custom grouping it gives so much personality and the subtle variance in color you get by doing that is lovely. You make it look so easy!

  6. I remember a special day trip to Carmel with the girls. Elegant lunch and fond memories. This palette envokes so many beautiful seaside memories!

  7. Oh, the fabric is indeed dreamy!! Love it.

  8. Gorgeous! I love those choices :)

  9. Such knockout colors Arianne;) I love Sandi Henderson!

  10. these colors and fabrics are gorgeous

  11. Oh how I adore Carmel!! I miss being on the north west coast more than I can put into words! I grew up there. :o) In Carmel, there is a darling little shop (if it is still there) that has the sweetest Christmas ornaments. :o)
    The fabric is pretty. :o)
    Have a nice day.
    Sincerely, Trish

  12. Very pretty pallette. I love the coordinating fabrics you chose!

  13. I love Carmel. I lived in Watsonville 30 years. It's between Santa Cruz and Monterey. I'm going this month. We moved here to Sacramento and its not as nice but there is less fog. I look forward to your quilt now!

  14. That Coral Kona solid, is that really coral (more on the pink side) or is red like my screen shows? I meant to look for a nice scarlet to go with my Zoe Pearns Sweet Nothings dot when you had your color cards at the meeting, but forgot. Next time.

    Go for it!
