Strip Tease

IMG_8159

I got the word it was OK to show you a glimpse of my new fabric line.  Wallflowers for Windham Fabrics will be available soon.  In the meantime, I’ve got a mountain of strips to be sewn together and cut apart and sewn together again.

Luckily I had this bad boy this week:

No it’s not mine…but almost worth moving and changing my  name for so it could be.   I had it in preparation for my class tomorrow at the Sew Expo teaching this:

If you happen to be there I’ll be in the Bernina Classroom from 11-4:30…come say hi!

Pin It!

I will be the first one to buy your fabric - I have always loved your color selections! Congratulations! How long will we have to wait to get our hands on it?

I love that pillow! I want to make one. It is beautiful. I might even experiment with free quilting on the edges. Are those pins in that quilt to make sure it doesn't slip and slide? Genius!

Joining the others for a BIG congrats to you, Alison. Your blog is one of my favorites, and, if your tease is any indication, I think your fabric will be right up there as well! Couldn't have happened to a better sewist/designer! Can you tell I just love your work?

Gorgeous. Oh and I spied the machine too what's it like to sew on?

Heleen Groot said...

Congratulations! I look forward to seeing more of it! Your sprocket pillow looks great. I have used your tutorial loads of times to make my own. They make the most wonderful gifts, specific to the taste of the receiver. I have noticed something about that pillow though.....it seems to attract cats! They love it even more then their owners.
