Get Romantic with Flora from Joel Dewberry!

Joel Dewberry is one of our longtime favorites for modern prints that will make a living space pop and standout in a wardrobe. His latest collection, Flora is no exception...fresh, lovely and perfect for Spring! Get inspired with these fabulous FREE PROJECTS designed especially for this collection. Like these Vine of Roses & Tip Toe Through the Tulips Pillows which are simple, yet interesting designs that add a refreshing dose of color to a neutral couch!
Or this bright and graphic Stepping Stones amazing addition to the end of your bed or in place of a headboard! I've been noticing lots and lots of pretty textile art being used as creative headboards and quilts take the cake as my favorite option! Imagine how pretty this would be with an all white bed a few handmade matching pillows. ;)
This Patchwork Pillow is a little more basic but still, in these fabrics it makes a great statement. It adds so much warmth to that white sofa too, don't you think? And I dig that bit of a boho vibe that patchwork in bright and bold prints always gives me. Like in that ONE bedroom everyone on facebook DIED over. So good.

Another fabulous quilt design, the Floral Dance Quilt reminds me of abstract art or an optical illusion. And with that mod border, it really takes on a groovy vibe!
Who doesn't need a new "every day" bag? This Pocket Tote is a spacious design for when you're out running errands, commuting with the kids or you have a long day of gym, work, happy hour ahead of you. Bring your extras along in style...I think it would look incredible with the whole body of the bag in that graphic Aztec print and going for dark brown leather straps. You could repurpose some old belts (first learned that trick from Amy Butler), or you visit your local Tandy or leather crafting store. You can find small pieces in reasonable prices. Just make sure you get a needle for leather to sew it using your machine!
Speaking of Amy Butler, I found a few more projects that she designed for Violette that I wanted to share! The Around the World Pillow is an awesome accent to any living space. Use it as a floor pillow, extra seating for a party or even use it as a dog bed.

City Squares is a cool graphic quilt that looks incredible in jewel tones and white! I wonder if the lighter prints in the collection would look good with a gray background...

How cool is this Woven Pillow? This is a super cool statement piece and an awesome project to add to your archives! Imagine what you could do with a gradient of solids! Make this baby and add some serious handmade magic to your home.
