A warm, sunny day on the beach, a light breeze, the beautiful blue tones of the sea and azure skies… A day spent on the coast offers so much to be inspired by.
Bring in a cool, rebel-inspired style you see popping up all over Instagram and Pinterest, Sashiko Denim — with its unique design of distressed jeans mended together with other fabrics like little snippets of denim or cotton and rough stitching that boldly stands out… like these examples from Pinterest.
What do you have? A perfect combination of gorgeous hues and intriguing designs that make up Zen Chic’s newest fresh, youthful fabric collection Breeze. The pillow sample below was sewn by Oggi Charisis.
The colors, distressed style, and stitching of sashiko denim all inspired the surface patterns of Breeze. You’ll find a sashiko stitch in one of the fabric patterns, and the small crosses and fine line stripes in a couple of the designs also reflect the sashiko style.
The beautiful colors and engaging patterns of Breeze by Zen Chic are a perfect choice for unique projects like these tissue pouches!
This youthful, airy collection is made up of a wide spectrum of mostly blues and whites with a broad range in variation from a depth-bringing dark navy blue to a more cool muted denim. It also includes turquoise, pale blues and crisp white accents. To round out the collection we have accent colors in mustard and a fresh, pale pink (This mini quilt below was sewn by Ulrike Brauns).
Breeze has some large-scale patterns like these multi-colored circles…
...some mid-scale patterns like the sashiko-inspired stripes and stitching motifs...
… and small-scale motifs that make perfect blenders and go beautifully with other fabric lines.
You may be wondering, what quilts will go well with this new fabric line? I have some very exciting news for you! I’ve created four new quilt patterns featuring the Breeze collection.
Combine the detailed designs and contrasting blue and white tones of Breeze into a visually dynamic masterpiece with Blue Labyrinth…
The Groovin pattern puts the colors and patterns of Breeze into a fun, adventurous design that you’re going to love diving into…
The London Blues pattern is a contemporary, stylish way to put the tones and visual textures of Breeze together to create a captivating quilt…
And the Stitched Denim pattern brings into play the sashiko-inspired stitching seen in the design of some of the Breeze fabrics to create a unique, beautiful quilt design you will love both creating and enjoying in your home.
