I'm so excited to finally share with you my other baby! Hello Jane for Windham Fabrics.
This is my fifth fabric line...and I still get incredibly nervous to show it off for the first time! I'm in love with the purple in this line, it's the perfect mix of lilac and violet.
This line got the name "Hello Jane" because I was literally working on this line while I was in the hospital saying "hello to Jane" for the first time! I was in the hospital for 5 really long days, so it was a welcome distraction. This fabric will always remind me of her as a tiny newborn baby.
There is also a punch of red (of course), tangerine, and yellow. Plus green, teal, and aqua because I would die without aqua. This line comes to stores in late May...and I'm so excited it's coming out before the summer! Also less time to wait.
(Summer Runners pattern here. Pattern for the diamond quilt in the top picture will be available in the next few days.)
The main floral and loopy floral are based off feedsacks from my collection I started when I lived in Ohio. I've used one in almost every collection and it's like my memories are wrapped up in these prints.
My extremely talented friend Megan made these amazing dresses for my girls. They are gorgeous.
I am NOT a bag maker. I could have made a whole quilt from start to finish before finishing one super simple bag! ;) In my defense though I thought I'd just make up a pattern as I go...not my best idea ever.
I'm sorry ahead of time for the overload of pictures and posts that will soon follow! I have a few quilts to share and since this post is getting mighty long I'll post within the next few days.
Oh and Happy Valentines Day! This weekend I went to dinner and a play in Seattle with some girlfriends... so I told Jay he was off the hook for a Valentines dinner/date. You should have seen the relief on his face! ;) Truth be told I don't think we've ever gone out on Valentines Day...I'm such a homebody!
