SUNRISE SUNSET : Mister Domestic’s Aura Blog Party

Would you believe me if I told you until now I had never used a print from Mister Domestic?! What?! When Matthew popped up to see if I was interested in getting on the blog hop train I thought… “clearly… ITS TIME”. Matthew has been putting out gorgeous prints with Art Gallery for a few years now and somehow none of them had climbed into my project stacks. Well that’s all changed now. I typically trend toward graphic prints with muted or neutral tones so I looked through Aura to see how I could blend my sensibilities with Matthew’s.

Matthew’s newest line Aura is this warm, tropically infused, collection of prints inspired by a trip to Hawaii with his daughter. I had a pattern in my back pocket that was just the ticket. As an ode to the men in the industry I busted out the Orbie pattern from Michael Caputo. It has this beautiful sunrise-sunset vibe that felt like the perfect match to Matthew’s Aura! I settled on four of the more graphic prints and thought it could be interesting to see how Aura can really span a variety of personalities from bold jewel-tone floral to a more streamline minimalist.

I decided to pare down the full pattern into a wall hanging and I think it turned out SO lovely!

Orbie Pattern can be found in Issue 55 of Quilt Now Magazine. You can grab a digital subscription or the paper issue is available to purchase from Pink Castle Fabrics!
