New Fabric and Fun!

IMG_1374-2018-01-12-06-05.jpg
I’ve been seeking new “skin tones” for my art quilts. I often cannot find the variety I want from commercially available fabrics, so I started designing some new fabrics with my own handwriting or text. I love sharing my obsessions so I won’t be keeping these all to myself – I’ve added them to my Etsy shop.

A few months ago, Brewer Sewing and Quilting Supplies, a wholesale distributor to quilt shops, started carrying my patterns! It’s a new adventure for me but my favorite part about joining Brewer is that I can inspire creativity in even more quilters and crafters. If you’d like to get your hands on my paper patterns, tell your local quilt shop to order a few when they next order from Brewer.

I’ve been cleaning my studio and office space to prepare for a new year of creative fun. I needed to make some room for storing patterns and fabric, so I put together some fun bundles of paper patterns and fabric in my Etsy shop to inspire your creative play. The best part – they are on sale!

Last up is the highly requested Sew Cute Quilter.
The patterns are available for digital download from Etsy – that means you can download the pattern multiple times and print it whenever you need it. If you’d rather have a paper copy of the pattern, sorry but I need to give the printer time to get them made. I’ll keep you posted when the paper versions are available.

Halloween Kids Pattern

My favorite part about Halloween is seeing kids dressed in their costumes trick-or-treating. We don’t get many trick-or-treaters here so I create Halloween art quilts instead. Last year I made these adorable art quilts and now you can too!

With my Halloween Kids pattern, you can create a superhero, mummy, witch, dracula, or bride of frankenstein. Yes, that list included boys, a frequent request that I am slowly starting to deliver.

I had so much fun creating art quilts with the girl doing a hand stand, jumping rope or swinging that I turned them into a pattern! Paper patterns (printed by me and mailed to you) and digital download patterns (download them now and print them when you need them) are available in my Etsy shop.

I’ve had several requests for a bicycle quilt pattern. I’m happy to report that patterns are finally available in paper or digital download.

I’ve been making and stitching like crazy – including a few new notebook covers. These are similar to a set I made earlier this year – this print likes being the star of a project.

Lastly, I put together a new fabric bundle – low volume (black and white) text prints. They are great quilting neutrals.

Text Prints via Spoonflower

For the last few months, I have been designing fabrics – specifically text prints.

I’m happy to announce that I’ve made a few text prints for sale via Spoonflower.

You can order fat quarters or yardage. I recommend having the designs printed on Kona cotton or basic combed cotton.
