They're here!!!

Fed Ex just dropped them off!

The strike offs or production samples for my first two fabric collections, A Vintage Autumn  and Vintage Blacks are now sitting in my sewing studio.


Now that I see them in person, I'm even more OVER-THE-MOON excited!!!

Can you tell?


I'm thrilled with both the color and quality of the fabric.


The quality is second to none and will be a pleasure to work with.


I'm so sorry that my photos in some instances don't show the true colors so you'll just have to take my word for it.  *wink*


The three main color groupings are a deep rust (not as orange as in the above photo), a steel-ish blue, light and dark taupes/tans and blacks that read a TRUE black and not a blue-black.



They ship from the Blank Quilting warehouse in April so keep an eye out for them in your local quilt shops!

Happy stitching!

Congratulations! How thrilling it must be to see your name on the selvage of all those gorgeous fabrics.

How does one go about designing fabric? Do you draw the designs and then somehow color them in? Is it done by hand or by computer?

Love the fabrics!
