Lighthearted - An Aurifil and Moda Challenge
As an Aurifil Artisan I was given the opportunity to get involved with this year's 'Stitch Pink' project featuring Camille Roskelley’s Lighthearted fabric collection from Moda and coordinating Aurifil thread collection.
I received a charm pack of Lighthearted and 4 coordinating Aurifil threads.
I took inspiration from the bright and sunny botanicals in the collection and decided to create a floral Zip, Divide it! basket.
Having 1 charm pack to work with I decided to use it to create a coordinated scrappy look (no charm square left unused!)
First I stitched up a cute little FPP Garden Flower block (from my FPP masterclass)
I then added scrappy panels to either side for the front of the Zip, Divide it! Basket and created another for the back.
Once the panels were complete I added decorative stitching to the flower.
The threads I used were all 50wt: 2270 (red) 2415 (pink) 2882 (green)

I kept the pretty mint colours for the zip pocket inside and managed to find a zip in my stash that matched quite well.
I have had such fun creating this project.
The fabrics are so pretty and I love the coordinated scrappy look you can get from using fabrics from one collection.
The Aurifil threads match so well and are so perfect for top stitching and decorative stitches.
