Have you happened upon Radiance yet?  I mentioned it when I came back from Market, and have enjoyed petting this bundle, from Jackie, since it arrived last week –

Yum!  I love the sheen and smooth texture.  And with a 1/2 yard of each color, the options are many!  Radiance is 55% cotton and 45% silk and available in 50 beautiful colors.

I have visions of an entire quilt made with these (imagine a paper pieced quilt!).  It will be amazing, and I can’t wait to get to it!

Meanwhile, I was browsing online and found this coat.

I would love to make a trench and embellish a panel or two.   I looked around for a pattern and found a couple that I could see altering –

Trench Pattern OptionsVogue, Butterick, Indygo Junction, Simplicity

Are you inspired yet?  I have a few new ideas just writing this post!

Radiance is beautiful, and with the cotton to stabilize the silk, it doesn’t stretch as you sew, and a few pins will help keep it from sliding off itself as you sew.  Quilts, apparel, home decor – sew it all!

Check in with Jackie for your own bundle of Radiance, I can’t wait to see more of it popping up online.
