Wallflowers

Wallflowers yardage

Wallflowers is in stores (finally!) and it’s been fun to see it popping up here and there.

IMG_1792

Almost a whole year ago it started out as this:

IMG_6542

Then from paper it went into the computer where it was digitized, colored, perfected, put in repeat, checked, re-checked, sent off, checked again, and finished!  More or less.

I spent way too many nights on the computer and drank way too much Dr. Pepper…but having it done and in my hands makes it all worth it and I’m so grateful for the opportunity.

My Mom made this cute apron…I love how she left the selvages on.  :)

And this top that that Suzanne made is about the cutest thing ever:

Everyday Top-1011a

Wallflowers is available now in brick and mortar quilt shops and online quilt shops.  You can find it online here, here, and here.

I have some charm packs and fat quarters to give away…leave a comment on this post (make sure I have your email!) and I’ll pick some winners later this week.    Giveaway closed….thanks!

Quilts for Sale

I put a handful of the quilts from my book into my Etsy shop if you’re in need of a quilt.  Turns out I have a few too many quilts!  Ok… maybe more than a few. 

Pin It!

Okay, so I'm a diehard Bonnie and Camille fan and if I ever have any extra pennies to spend on fabric, it's theirs. But I am LOVING this! It's so happy!! And I love how multicolored it is. I think i'm going to have to splurge on this now!

Don't you just do a little squeal every time you look at those selvages on the apron and see YOUR NAME???? That's such an awesome idea to celebrate your "arrival"; I wanted to hug your mom and I don't even know her! It's so much fun watching things take off for you - congrats!

Lenore Langabeer said...

Beautiful colors, and I love the apron your Mom made and the fact that she left the selvages on, so sweet!

Anna F. said...

Wallflowers is on my Christmas list, for sure! Love, love, love the apron. If you love a certain fabric but can't/don't want to make an entire quilt, making an apron is an excellent option. Yes, I like aprons either to wear or just hanging on a hook so I can see their prettiness :)

Nessa said...

How lovely to have all your ideas finally come to fruition. Congratulations!
Would love to try out some of your delicious fabric!

maureen said...

I can see these fabrics used in so many different ways! Would love to be chosen so I can make something with them!

Becca said...

I went to my quilt shop today specifically to pick up a couple half yards of Wallflowers; I figured they had been out for a while! I went thinking I would get just 2 half yards; the navy small floral and the light blue with red dots...but couldn't say no to a few others as well and came home with 5 different cuts. Love it!! They are beautiful.

You should know I've resisted buying fabric "just because I love it" all year. That was a goal for me--only buy when I have a specific project with a specific yardage need. Don't have anything in mind for these wallflower cuts yet, but I couldn't say no. I just couldn't. A bundle would be great to supplement the few cuts I got!

Makenzie said...

So so cute! I would love to win!

Hilary said...

These are such pretty fabrics!

sue said...
