Craft Up A Trend: Colorblock Style

Colorblock style is hot to the max!

We've been seeing this trend everywhere and it is inspiring us to get crafty in big, bold blocks of color, from quilts to shawls to clothing and totes!

Jaime just finished the Rockefeller Shawl mystery knit-along from Stephen West and we love her colorblocking choice of Anzula Squishy's Cantaloupe and Au Natural--pretty dang stunning!

Stephen West's Spectra and Chevry

The designer of Rockefeller, Stephen, is the master of hot colorblock knitting--we also love his shawl patterns Spectra, Chevry and Earth & Sky! Be sure to stop by the shop on September 22nd from 7 - 9pm to meet the man himself!

Allison is currently making Earth & Sky in Madelinetosh Light colors Maple Leaf, Smokestack and Onyx. It's looking super hot!

For quilting inspiration, the new book, We Love Color, will inspire you to play with colorblock style. 16 quilt designs using Kona cotton solids will have you thinking bold solids and large blocks! We are especially digging this Sweet As Pi baby quilt pattern.

Sewists, the new Kona Modern Quilts fabrics by Cynthia Frenette are prints with vibrant modern blocks of color. Use this faux patchwork to make a crafty colorblock garment or bag, or even stitch up the quickest quilt of all time!
