I’ve been so caught up working on new patterns it took me by complete surprise when Kimberly at Fat Quarter Shop emailed to say she has my new fabric, Lily & Will II in stock! It’s finally arrived and I’m feeling like a new mom!
Think of all the things you can make with this yummy aqua and yellow fabric!
If you’re looking for a fast and easy quilt try our “B is for Baby” whole cloth quilt. We’ve included a full alphabet so you can customize with any initial you desire. A touch of applique and you’re done! Just look at this yummy aqua! Enlarge my photo so you can see it!

I was taking these quilt photos this morning and Mooch jumped up on the bed (of course). She has to be the star even when Lily & Will II is arriving. You know how cats are! Gray cat on white bed…hmmm something rather royal about that. I wonder if she’s thinking about my next fabric line!
I’m patiently awaiting the arrival of the advance yardage for my Spring line called “Puttin’ on the Ritz”. I’m designing without fabric right now just using little images; not the easiest thing to do so keep your fingers crossed that it comes soon!
Hope you’re all having a great week!
