Raucous Rhumba

Rhumba is a new line for Windham Fabrics by Rosemarie Lavin…full of great “rainbow sherbet” type colors, with accents of chocolate brown…yum! It came in last week to the shop I work for parttime, and I volunteered to make up a store sample with it. I wish I had better photos, some of these prints are fabulous…
I love that mosaic print, it looks like a Byzantine mosaic tile floor…gorgeous! A few of the prints here are not from the Rhumba line, but about 80% of them are.
So, this week in the evenings after work I have whipped up 53 square-in-a-square blocks in three different sizes, and have them all laid out on my living room floor (i.e. my high-falootin’ design wall) ready to get pieced together into a quilt top hopefully this evening. Everytime I walk past it, I move a block or two around, looking for a more eye-appealing arrangement…it’s sort of like an explosion of bright colored squares all over the floor right now.
I’ve been working on another project in the meantime, a re-upholstery project that I should have some great before-and-after photos of soon…here’s a sneak peak to whet your appetite:
Happy crafting…!

  1. These fabrics are really beautiful! I haven't seen them anywhere yet. And your project is gorgeous already. Sounds like you're having fun playing with it. Can't wait to see your upholstery project, something I've always wanted to try. Have fun!
