Hello. I thought I would pop in and post a bit of an update. I don't know how many of you are still reading blogs. It's getting harder and harder to find time for everything and Facebook and Instagram are so fast. But... just in case there are some of you who read blogs but don't use other social media platforms, this is for you.
I debuted a new fabric line at quilt market a few weeks ago. It's called A Common Thread and is with Diamond Textiles. The prints are designed to mix and match with the gorgeous wovens they already produce. The photo above shows the bolts at market with The Farmhouse Sampler BOM. I am taking sign ups for the BOM through June 18. It's a 10 month program and uses the exact fabrics. You can find more info HERE.
This is a close up of the prints. They are all produced from antique samples from my personal collection and recolored to my palette. There is a Valdani 35wt hand dyed thread set to coordinate with the line. This thread is great for machine or hand quilting.
This is Westchester. It uses most of the line with navy and cream wovens replacing the green. Love this quilt!
This is Roundabout. It uses the two blues and two wovens. This is such a fast and fun quilt to make. The pattern comes with custom acrylic template/rulers for fast cutting.
Before quilt market we were in France for the quilt show Pour l'Amour du Fil.
And I leave on Wednesday for the KCRQF. I am teaching 5 classes and will have a booth. Maybe I will see you there!
