Cath Kidston Rainbow



Cath Kidston.

Two words that make my heart sing. That name can instantly make me forget that there is anything in the world but perfect happiness and beauty, and makes me grateful for the little things--like overdraft protection. If you've checked out the prices you know it will sink your bank account. But who can resist those bright, vintage-y florals and cute, kitschy items?




I recently made a quilt for my bed, and couldn't decide on what fabric to use for the pillows, so I ordered some Cath Kidston pillowcases. Well now the pillowcases don't match the quilt, and I didn't want to pay $125 for a matching duvet, so in my infinite wisdom I decided to make a quilt in Cath Kidston colors, that in the end (as we all know) will end up being far more expensive than if I would've just paid for the duvet. Why does quilting cost so much?!!




But anyway, to make sure my colors matched exactly, I used my Moda Bella swatch book to match everything up, placed an order, and then this week this beautiful rainbow arrived!! Isn't it so pretty?


Bella solids in Raspberry, Popsicle, 30's Pink, Parfait, Sunshine, Baby Yellow, Dusty Jade, Breeze, Summer Sky, Glacier, Tranquil Aqua, and Etchings Stone

Now the question is

If Cath Kidston were a quilter, what kind of quilt would she make?

Linking up with Mollie Sparkles' Sunday Stash which is being hosted this week by the hilariously realistic Work-in-Progress Girl.  I just love her candor and sarcastic sense of humor:)

  4. Oh Cath how I do admire thee!! I always assumed she was a quilter, probably better she isn't because I would be too jealous of what she would come up with . :)

  6. Beautiful solids!! Such gorgeous colors! I have no suggestion for a quilt, but I'm certain you'll make something that will be perfect, and you'll love it.

    Even though my tastes run toward deep, saturated colors, Cath Kidston is way up on my list of favorites! I've purchased a few of the tea towels, and turned a couple into simple backpacks (for my kiddo's ballet and tap class), and am hoarding some fun CK oilcloth.

  7. Love the bundle of solids! So pretty. Will you add prints to the mix or keep it all solids? It'll be beautiful, in any case!
