Wallflowers

Wallflowers yardage

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

Almost a whole year ago it started out as this:

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!

Samantha K said...

Beautiful fabrics! I could just stick them each in their own frame and hang them on a wall and look at them all day long! Thanks for sharing!

Rebecca Grace said...

Ooh, I really love the fabric that looks like a small white 4-petaled flower against a solid ground, in yellow, pink... It reminds me of vintage inspired hand-printed wallpaper from F. Schumacher & Co (expensive!)

Suzanne said...

Such beautiful fabric! Congrats!! Can't wait to get my hands on some!

Sandy Land said...

Hi, Allison!

Thanks for sharing the process of behind the scenes of making your fabric line! It is so cute! Wish I had as much energy to do what you do! It's fun to live vicariously through your cute blog! : )

Lisa Rea said...

What lovely fabrics. I adore the colours. Have a great day.

Mel @ Heart and Homemade said...

I love it! I can't even begin to imagine how it must feel to see your own designs made into fabric. No wonder your Mother left the selvages on...proud moment :-)

✾Jamie Lee Cooley✾ said...

How sweet is that apron! Of course your mom left the selvages on! I would too if my daughter designed a fabric line:). I bet she is so proud.

I already got a fat quarter bundle from the fqs the day it was available and then talked my sister into using some of the prints for a quilt along we are doing together, so we had to order some more! The colors we are using are red, blue, and yellow and it goes so well with a Riley Blake fabric called Enchant. I don't go in for the novelty prints too much anymore so we used your flowers as the more focal fabric of the design. Btw, I just love the tree fabric in gray. I like how you made the leaves go both ways so there really isn't an up or down which can be a pain, especially to a new quilter. We both love it!

Simply, Sarah said...

I love your design!

Natalie said...

What an awesome experience creating your own fabric collection!!! I have found a new LOVE... sewing quilts! In my "unemployed" time, I'm on my 3rd quilt top! I'm definitely a beginner, but I actually now know what "charm pack" and "fat quarters" mean! :) I find the entire process so therapeutic... picking fabrics, patterns, cutting and creating! Your website has been an inspiration! Thank you! Is it normal to spend my late nights scoping out fabric online??? This is new to me! :() natalie.everitt@outlook.com

Betsy Updegrave said...

Gorgeous!!!

stayhomemom said...

Hi, I have rediscovered quilting after a 12 year hiatus and have also fallen in love with your blog. There weren't many quilting blogs when I first started but there are so many now. Yours is in my faves.

Love your design and colour sense.

Cheers!!

Matt Peterson said...

I love this fabric line. I have created two quilts from this line, your suburban and wicker patterns. Great job Allison

Kayla Yapuncich said...

This is such a gorgeous collection!!!

Tara said...

Wow! What beautiful fabric. I can't even imagine how proud and excited you must be feeling. I LOVE beautiful fabric and wish that I had the talent to create it -- I can envision, I just could never actually design as I can't even draw a stick figure. This is why I'm getting into quilting -- hoping to create beautiful items that others will enjoy. Congratulations!

shauna said...

Beautiful fabric line! I can see so many new project possibilities!

Lisa J said...

The fabrics are beautiful and so are the quilts from your book. It's on my wish list. I would love to add some of your fabric to my stash, thanks for giving away some. :)
