Fat Quarter Shop

Oh. My. Gosh*.

From time to time I search to see if any of my artwork has made it onto some of my favorite websites, Blogs, and online stores. I never find anything. UNTIL TODAY.

This morning I went onto the Fat Quarter Shop and entered my name in the search field. Guess what came up??????

If you are a designer or a crafter or a quilter, you are familiar with this square and the charming Fat Quarter Shop logo. It’s like a badge of honor for me to have my artwork on this website. And the collection isn’t even set to ship until August!!! I. am. so. excited.

* I have a two and a half year old, so even when I write I am trying to keep my mouth from spewing out profanity. This not swearing thing is going fairly well though, considering I really worked hard at swearing a lot as a teenager. I remember practicing swearing because I thought it made me seem tough and cool. Now I do everything in my power to NOT swear. Oh, how things change…🙂

Animal Parade

I am SO happy to be posting about another upcoming fabric collection! Animal Parade, a line of cotton craft and quilt fabric for little girls, is scheduled to deliver in August. Yahoo!!!!! Here is a sneak peek. The final version of the fabrics is now on view at Blend Fabrics.

I am so, so excited about this new line. Even though I have a little boy (and almost all of my friends here in Chicago have little boys), my very best friend just had a little girl. They live in London, but as soon as I get this fabric, I am going to make little Elsa a trunk load of goodies and ship them all over to her. I am especially excited about the larger scale animals with the flowers and vines. I scaled it for appliqué and small pillows, as well as quilts.

Hope everyone likes this new line, and please, please, send me images of what you make with it!
