Bring in the new

It gets so crazy around here right before market.  You’d think I’d be used to it, but it never ceases to amaze me.  It’s market frenzy time and it takes every minute I have to get ready.  My husband cooks, feeds the pets, shops and takes care of the house, just so I can design quilts and write patterns.  Bless his heart, it’s a routine we automatically fall into.  I couldn’t do it without him.

I’ve been sewing with my newest fabric line from Moda called Celebration.  I’ve designed Celebration with 2 colorways;  one for boys and one for girls.


 Celebration for boys…

 Celebration Boy

  …with elephants in red, blue or green…


…and dots, checks and stars galore!

Celebration Boys

Celebration for girls…

Celebration for Girls

…with sweet little lambs in white, pink or lavender…

Lambs for Girls

…and gingham checks, little birds and tiny flowers.

Gingham checks

The studio shelves are filled!

Celebration is a happy fabric line!  It will ship to quilt shops in August.
