I finally get to share Bounce with you today!
This is my 6th (!) fabric collection with Windham Fabrics. I actually sketched out the art for this line way back in 2012, but the timing just never worked to release it. After my last fabric line I took a longer and much needed break from designing, and afterwards it just felt right to try something different and new! I’m always sewing and quilting for kids, so it was so fun to actually design a fabric line more geared to them.
When we lived in Ohio I found a vintage Jacks game at a swap meet. The packaging was pretty beat up, but it was adorable with faded primary colors, big block letters, with a red and blue striped bouncy ball inside. I bought the set for the ball inside, but forgot about it until a couple of years later when we moved again and I found it in a box of random junk. I kept the ball, threw away the packaging and jacks, then wouldn’t you know it….later that year it was the inspiration for this line (and I was kicking myself for throwing away that package!).
I wanted this line to feel playful and light, but still in my favorite colors that blend seamlessly with my other collections. There are bouncy balls, jacks, clouds, a few flowers, and my favorite block letter print. Even though I designed this line with kids in mind, it still has some great colors and prints that work for everyone.
Many of the photos were taken by Brianne Serrano Photography. All of these projects and quilts were made with the help of caffeine, pizza for dinner on repeat, my Mom babysitting, no clean laundry, and me not sleeping for a week. For reals.
Bounce is on sale to quilt shops now through Windham Fabrics. It comes out to stores in March 2019 (it will be here before we know it!).
You can see my whole Look book for this collection HERE, and I’ll share more of my other projects next week in another post so I don’t put you to sleep reading this one.
As always, thank you for your support, kindness, and encouragement. I wouldn’t be able to do anything I do without this wonderful community!
