I was beyond excited to work with the new Paradigm fabrics by Sarah Thomas of Sariditty. She is just the sweetest and her brand new fabric matches her personality perfectly! Also, I love Hoffman’s line of Me + You batik fabrics and was excited to see that Sarah had a color curated range of batiks to match her fabrics!
Without further ado, here is my crazy quilt inspired hoop made with both the Paradigm fabrics and the Me + You batiks:
When I saw the doily-inspired gray on white print, I knew I needed to Boho that up! So I cut three of the medallions and attached them to the batik prints.
You’ll notice that in the above picture, the fabric that I used is from this panel:

I love that in just one cut of fabric, I had access to eight fat quarters!
Once I assembled my crazy hoop, it was time to stitch! I rarely use thimbles when I hand stitch, but because I was going through so many layers of fabric to stitch the medallions, a thimble was necessary for me to keep my fingers intact!
When I do have to use a thimble, the Clover Natural Fit thimble is my absolute favorite one. You can find it here. Most thimbles leave me with a claustrophobic feeling (weird, right?!) but this one allows me to have a range of motion while I stitch!
And here’s a detailed pic of each medallion beaded and stitched:
Feast your eyes on each of the prints from this line, along with the coordinating Me + You batiks!
