Romance in Retro-spect: Squeeze Your Own Bundle

I saw this on Blossom Heart Quilts and couldn't wait to get started.  I love putting fabrics together but will admit that I often cheat and buy all of my fabrics for a project from the same line to make sure that they will go well together.  This was a bit of a challenge - - in more ways than one. 
I have never used any photo imaging software (unless you count instagram)...this should be no surprise to those of you who have seen my photos on my blog or Etsy.  I used the Picasa 3 as recommended by Alyce and it was pretty simple even for someone like me :).  I did have trouble saving the Fresh Squeezed Fabrics logo box though so sadly my collage is without it.  I am also amazingly UNcreative when it comes to naming things...again no shock there.

In the end I came up with this:

Romance in Retro-spect

 I am really loving the fabrics and the way the work together.  My focus fabric and the fabric that I started with and decided to build around is the large, bold floral on the top, left.  Not my usual fabric, as I typically go for bright, fun, explosive colors.  Maybe that's why I like it so much...
The name of the bundle stemmed (I promise I wasn't intending on making a pun, but if it fits...) from the beautiful floral prints and somewhat muted, yet still vibrant due to that pop of red, colors that remind me of old time romance and since part of the competition is the name I wanted to do some kind of catchy twist.

Hopefully everyone else will love it as much as I do.  A big thanks to Fresh Squeezed Fabrics for sponsoring this contest/giveaway! 


  1. That's a pretty bundle and I love how the prints and colours goes so well with each other.
