I’ve been a very bad blogger lately.
Only two posts in a month!
I think I might have a good reason though -
I have been busy playing with this:
It’s a new fabric line that I designed with my Mom. We named it Sanibel.
Here’s a closer look - Or click on the photos to see a bigger picture.
We set out to design a line of fabrics that were fresh and cheerful, with a cottage chic feel. The colors include shades of aqua blue, apple green, tangerine, salmon pink, butter yellow and a chocolate brown – all colors you might find on a beautiful beach-side resort. The prints would be perfect for a lake cottage, shabby chic decor, spring and summer quilts, a cheerful bedroom and we think they will work for any age group. We have included lots of floral prints – some smaller more traditional prints, and some larger trendy prints. There is a polka dot print included, along with a couple plaids for binding.
We have been busy making quilts out of our sample yardage (which I previewed a bit of in my last post). We have four quilts done so far and can’t wait to share them with you!
First, Fresh Blooms from the book “On the Run”. Perfect for a spring table!
Second, a wall quilt called “Center of Attention” from the book “Stop, Drop, and Roll”. This quilt features a few of my favorite things -
A touch of applique . . .
A large scale print that you just can’t cut! . . . .
Assorted Prints in 2 1/2″ strips . . . .
And JUMBO Ric Rac!
Next up is Crazy Daisy, which Mom made for her grandaughter Isabella.
This is the free pattern, available at www.henryglassfabrics.com – See the projects page and just look for the image below to download.
Lastly, we have “Beach Balls” from the “Simply Sixties pattern. The pieces are large so they really show off the prints. The design looks like beach balls, so I think it’s perfect for Sanibel.
There is more to come, but this is all I can show at the moment. I’m working on a couple new patterns for this line and my Christmas line. (I hope to have them completed before market.)
Sanibel will be in stores the end of May/beginning of June from Henry Glass Fabrics. We hope you like it!
