I mentioned a little while ago that I was chosen to be a brand ambassador for Blank Quilting Corporation, and that, from time to time, I’d be sharing some projects made with a new Blank Quilting fabric collection. I’m excited to share my first such project with you today!
I was provided with the Narumi fabric collection, designed by Nathalie Runghen. It’s an eleven piece collection, along with a panel, featuring Japanese designs in a palette of red, gray, black, and cream.
As luck would have it, my best friend spent a large amount of her childhood living in Japan, and red and black are amongst her favorite colors. I decided it was time to make her a quilt! After a little bit of mulling, I decided to make Latifah Saafir’s 8-inch Glam Clam quilt because the fan print made think that this collection would work well in a clamshell quilt…and now I need to also make a 12-, 10-, and 6-inch Glam Clam quilt, too. Excellent pattern!
In addition to the Narumi fabric collection, Blank Quilting sent me some yardage of a couple of their basics: a gray shade of Urban Legends, their mottled solid line, which I used in the design, and “Red” from their Eclipse Solids collection, which I used for binding. I also fussy-cut a little of the panel for a couple of clamshells. The quilt was skewing too dark, so I added in some white to elevate it.
Ashley of Hen House Quilting quilted it up for me, and I love the design she picked. I’m a little sad to let this go live at my bestie’s house! I really, really like how this all turned out. I adore that wisteria print, and I’m looking forward to what I’m going to make from the cherry blossom and geisha girls prints. This is a fun collection!
I think it turned out really great! Thank you, Blank Quilting, for granting me this opportunity to work with this gorgeous collection! Narumi is available in quilt shops now! I hope you enjoy working with it as much as I have!
