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!

Hello from across the pond.
I started following your wonderful blog only last week and I was so enamoured by your modern take on your quilts that I gave you a mention on my blog, suggesting others might like to check out your beautiful designs too. Little did I know you had also designed your own fabric range! I love it and the apron your mum made is fabulous - she must be very proud indeed and what a lovely way to honour your new range of fabrics by leaving the selvedge on! So cute.
Congratulations!
Sophie
