Costume Maker's Ball...

I’m so excited to share another BOO-tiful fabric collection with you. This time from my friend and fellow Riley Blake Designs Designer, Janet Wecker Frisch of Joy Studio.

Costume Maker’s Ball is a spook-tacular collection of slightly creepy, yet fun and modern prints. Inspired by a set of antique sewing patterns from the 1800’s this collection features Janet’s stunning art in her signature style. Some of my favorites include the tape measure, jack-o-lantern balloons, scaredy cat buttons, webs, and tickets. The panels in this collection are to die for!

I fell in love with this collection at Quilt Market. Janet’s booth was amazing, she even won a best booth award.. Every project was gorgeous and inspiring and waiting for the fabric to arrive was tough. I just couldn’t wait to create with it.

I decided to stick with a small range of Janet’s prints, mostly in black and white. I chose to incorporate my favorite RBD basic, Shades into the mix as well. I searched high and low for the perfect quilt pattern and found Charming Lucy by Andy Knowlton of A Bright Corner to be just what I needed. I knew the pattern would highlight Janet’s beautiful artwork while giving me the chance to explore color and pattern balance. Aren’t those various Shades colors so good? It gives the project so much awesome texture.

Costume Maker’s Ball is in stores now! Don’t wait to buy this collection around Halloween, trust me, it will be sold out! It’s that good!

P.S. I did not make the 2-Fat Quarter Basket. Janet did! We participated in a RBD Designer Swap and she made me one using Costume Maker’s Ball. Isn’t it so cute? She filled it with gummy bears, my favorite. The 2-Fat Quarter Basket is a pattern from our friends at Me and My Sister Designs.
