After about 7 or 8 months of not having any new products to show you, I finally have something new to share! I have gotten the go-ahead to spill the beans on a new fabric line that will be coming out later this year. I painted the line up last summer, so it seems like I have been waiting a while to show you!
My inspiration began with all the images of cute cottages I had been seeing on blogs like House of Turquoise. (one of the best decorating blogs, in my opinion.) I loved the cottages with weathered grey siding and a turquoise front door. Isn’t it a great combo?
Love it!!!! I could just move right in . . . It makes me think of ocean waves, beaches, quaint cottages, white picket fences, sand in my toes, and cupcakes with extra thick frosting. (Ok – maybe that last part is the bump talking, but you get the idea)
It makes me want to change the siding on my house or repaint – which of course I can’t do.
But couldn’t I create a fabric line with this same feeling?
A cottage look with fresh colors?
I really wanted to do another line with more grey. Last year Mom and I put out Whimsy, with one grey print, just to see how it would go over. It was the first print to sell out! So, I started mixing paint, adding more grey and using some of my favorite colors. I came up with this line:
A look inside the sales card:
It’s a little hard to photograph off of a shiny sales card, so here is a closer look at the CADs of each color grouping
The grey prints:
The blue prints:
The cherry red prints:
The ivory prints:
The chocolate brown prints:
And lastly, the pink and green prints:
If you are quilt shop owner, now is the time to place your order for this line. It is hitting the road with the Henry Glass sales reps this month – And if you don’t get in on the order with the first printing, you more than likely won’t be able to get it at all, so now is your chance!
If you are a quilter, this line will be hitting stores in June. I will keep you posted when we get closer to the actually shipping date. In the meantime, if you are interested in this line, you can let the quilt shop owners know!
I am really excited for this line to come out. It seems to take forever from the time I paint it up, to the time it comes out . . . but I was anxious to show everyone. I hope you like it!
