It’s new fabric day! I’m finally sharing my 7th fabric line with Windham Fabrics, Backyard Blooms.
It’s showing to Quilt Shops now, and will be available in stores late July (I’ll post here when you can buy it!).
The pretty denim color was the only new addition this time besides tweaking my basic favorite colors, and making things a bit more saturated and clean feeling.
I wanted it to look the way my house feels after I’ve finished cleaning it all day….right before my kids get off the bus ready to unclean it. ;)
The large bunched rose print is my favorite. I sat at my computer at night drawing it for 10393 hours and ate bags and bags and baaaags of this kettle corn while doing it. It has a vintage/countryside/fresh look I love.
After I finished drawing up the whole line, it sat in my computer for a month or two before I worked up the courage to send it into Windham. I’ve done this 7 times and it’s always scary to send in something you’ve spent SO much time on when there’s a big chance they won’t like it (spoiler…they liked it). They always help me see things with clear eyes and we tweaked a few things, but I’m so happy with how it’s turned out and I couldn’t be more excited for this to hit stores.
I have 3 new quilt patterns I’ll get in my shop this weekend and share photos next week. I enjoyed every second of sewing with this fabric and these colors!
My Mom whipped up this cute little dress for Jane (Simplicity pattern R10373), and then she refused to look at the camera in ANY pictures. I had to laugh thinking about the picture of her in this post last year of my new fabric…where she was making a fist because she was mad at me and wouldn’t look at me.
She’s got spunk!
Oh and of course there is a print with chickens on it. At some point I had to put chickens on fabric right?! It’s just a given!
Thank you for letting me share Backyard Blooms with you and I’ll be sharing more next week!
