My Big Announcement

Back in January, I gave you a little sneak peek of something I have been working on.... and now I can finally share with you.... I am so excited to announce my new fabric line with Henry Glass Fabrics called Sewing Room Social. It is so much fun- little mice and birds gathering and playing in the sewing room, really pretty colors and fun buttons and flowers and teacups. We introduced the line at Spring Quilt Market last weekend and got a great response. Below, a preview of the panel and coordinating fabrics:


Ask for my line at your favorite quilt shop! It will be in stores in October, shop owners can order it now. I have also developed 2 free patterns to promote the line- they will be available soon, so make sure to check back here. (see images below.)

Designing fabric is something I've been wanting to do for a very long time- it is the perfect way for me to combine my love of painting and sewing and color (some of you know that I am a "color geek"). It has not always been easy, getting to this point. It has many, many times seemed like one step forward and two (or three...) steps back... I've often felt like I was sitting by the phone, waiting for the boy I like to call to ask me to the prom, wondering if he'd ever call.... but here I am, and I must tell you, I feel just a tiny bit like Cinderella, finally going to the ball (though I really don't look like her, sitting here in my pj's, but you get the idea.) I have worked really hard to get here- finally.... So the moral of this story is not surprising, I'm sure you've heard it from your mom or dad, or maybe a favorite teacher, or maybe just the hero/heroine of your favorite fairy tale- Never give up! Dreams come true!

Have a wonderful weekend!
