Big Announcement from the Studio!

I have been waiting patiently for months to make this announcement.

My FIRST EVER fabric line is here!

"Enjoy the Journey"  will make it's debut at Quilt Market St. Louis on May 17th with Henry Glass Fabrics, booth 2815.

Putting this collection together was a lot of fun and quite the learning experience. I couldn't have done it without the help of a great AD and several friends who are experienced in creating fabric collections. 

It all started with these 6 blocks. I thought about all the places and cities where I would like to ride my bike. Maybe a picnic by the Arno in Florence, a pastry shop in Paris, Central Park in New York; you get the picture!

After that I had to come up with patterns to accompany the blocks. The Bike Stripe came naturally, but being new to designing a collection,  I needed some assistance in figuring out some of the others. 

 This particular pattern was a bit of a brain bender for me and I loved how it turned out.

There are 11 patterns total in this collection and you can see the whole kit and caboodle at the Henry Glass website.

I really enjoyed putting this together and can't wait to stitch something up. Hopefully it will be received well and this is just the beginning. I did recently finish designing a second collection for a later release, but shhhh, that's a secret.............

Thanks for stopping by!
