Finally……………… after much waiting, sample yardage of Lily & Will II arrived at Bunny Hill on Friday! Lily & Will II! When I opened the box the first words out of my mouth were “oh my gosh, it’s so beautiful”! The fabric feels like heaven and the colors are yummy; aqua and butter yellow like only Moda can do!
We’ve cut it up and sent it off for samples to be made! We move fast when there’s only 4 weeks from start to finish! Pre-market days mean long hours and lots of work, but sewing with new fabric is something we never tire of!
What is it about new fabric that we all love so much! There’s nothing like it. I love to spread out the fabrics and just look at them. I find it hard to make that first cut! Fabric is what keeps me happy, inspired and really glad I’m a quilter!
As we’re stitching away with the new line, we’re sending off a trunk show for Lily & Will I to Fabric Depot in Portland! If you live in that area stop by the store in a few weeks and you’ll see two complete nurseries; one in pink and one in blue. They’ll have all my quilts and accessories so you can see them up close.
Lily & Will should be shipping to stores any day now and I’m waiting for it to arrive at Bunny Hill too! I’ve ordered bolts of this cream Cottontail Toile. I’m redecorating one of our bedrooms in white and cream and this fabric will make the perfect drapes! My husband promised to repaint that bedroom a yummy cream while I’m away at market. I’m sure he doesn’t remember. I’ll remind him in a few weeks. He just loves painting bedrooms (don’t I wish).
If you embroider, you’ll love the Lily & Will pre-quilted fabric in cream. I love it so much I’ve added it to my next fabric lines. Just place your embroidery pattern and pre-quilted fabric right side up over a light box and trace the design onto the right side of the pre-quilted fabric. No need for backing; it’s already the perfect weight. You can see the pattern through the fabric and it’s great! I’ll be using this fabric over and over.
If you can’t see the quilting in the cream sample above, here it is in pink!
Look at these blankies using this pre-quilted fabric!
Oh baby do I see blue waffle cloth on the back of that brown blankie? You’re going to love the waffle cloth too!
While moms are whiping up some burp cloths, I may whip up some waffle cloth kitchen towels! Wouldn’t these be pretty in the kitchen? I’m thinking pink and brown for me.
I know I promised pictures of the studio “at work”, the real thing, up close and personal. Truth is it’s getting worse every day. It looks like a tornado went through here and I may not be able to find the camera! It’s just too embarrassing. Mooch is absolutely disgusted. She’s sick of freezer paper templates, scissors and everything else. Poor kitty.
And I miss not having the time to respond to comments. I’ll catch up as soon as I can. Hugs to each and every one of you.
