Whimsy is Here!

Before I get started with my post for today, I just wanted to let you know that Maria over at Passing Down Crazy is having a great giveaway with my Living Large 2 book and some fabric.  Click here to check it out.  She is quilting her way through Living Large 2, by making each project in the book.  It’s quite an ambitious endeavor, but it is very Maria.  She is always up for a challenge!  I am anxious to see what she comes up with, as you know I love a good color option.

Yes, the fabric that we (Mom and I) have been waiting for is finally here.  Mom and I painted this line up last summer, so it always seems like a long wait.  Many of you have asked about it, as I said it was coming in June.  Well, it’s a month late, but it is finally arriving in stores.  My bolts arrived too . . . . They look so cheerful sitting in my studio.

I designed a single pattern to show how I envision using the fabric.  There are several size options, from lap to queen and there are two color options – planned and scrappy.

Here’s a closer look at the quilt that uses all of the prints from the line

For the color option, I left out the pink and orange, and just used these colors:

The two options look completely different, even though they are from the same fabric line!  This one is my current favorite, as I love the brown, teal and gray together.  (In fact, I love the gray so much, that the line I just painted up for next year has 4 gray prints instead of one. )  I also like the idea that you can get a taste of the line, even if buying the entire fat quarter pack isn’t in your budget).

I had some fun quilting this one.  I did it free-hand and started with the question mark-shaped swirl in the center, then just feathered around it to fill the space.

I will be adding a few Whimsy kits to the website as soon as my internet is running better.  It took me like 3 hours to load these photos.  I have no idea why everything kept locking up on me, but I was determined to get this post done.  In the meantime, I have added a fat quarter pack to the kits tab (EDIT – the kits are now up too) and hopefully you will find the fabric at your local shop any day now.  For those of you who are regular readers, you know the drill about the fat quarter pack.  Leave a comment and you will be eligible to win the first pack that goes out the door.  I’ll pick a winner next week, so stop back soon!

    Your fabric is beautiful. I love the brown with the pretty blue flower. Happy quilting!

  2. Nancy says:

    LOVE the blue with the lines that look like TV’s from Laugh In…now I just dated myself… And it’s so hard to find a good gray. That one would make a sweet purse…

    Will have to watch for this one to hit a local shop…

    Thx for the chance to win some of this pretty fabric.

  6. nami11 says:

    I too really like the brown, teal and gray…. gray just somehow pulls colors together and brings out the color of the other fabrics with a calming effect. Would love to win the bundle. Thanks for sharing with us.

    O dear! I thought I had fabric picked out for kitchen curtains, but now, I’m not sure any more; these are so pretty!!!

  24. Mary says:

    Ummm!!! What yummy fabrics! I especially like the yellow. I didn’t realize you had to wait almost a year. Is that typical for all fabric designers? This line looks like it was definitely worth the wait.

  25. jane says:

  46. Susan J. says:

    The fabrics are beautiful. The pattern on the gray is lovely, and I really like the teal fabrics. Didn’t you stencil a bathroom to match the teal floral on the dark brown? It looks so familiar. You are such a gifted designer and quilter.

  47. Sarah says:

    These are beautiful! My favourite pattern is the outline of the flower (teal on brown and grey on grey) I hope that I’m lucky enough to see some in shops near me!

  151. Darlis Johns says:

    Beautiful line! Very cheery.


  152. Jenny Goldstein says:

    First, I love the new line and your project that shows it all off. I am really curious though about how a line of fabric is produced. You’ve mentioned that you paint up a line and then send it off, but could you maybe do a post that tells more about this process? I know you might not be able to really tell about what happens once your designs leave your hands, but how does it work when you sit down to come up with a line and do the painting? Do you just paint the florals? How do you figure out the repeat? Do you paint things to the same scale they will be on the fabric? When it comes to the more geometric prints like the dots, stripes, and squares, do you actually paint those or do you draft them on the computer so that everything is evenly and consistently spaced? I have sooo many questions rolling around in my head, I’d really love you to tell more about how it’s done!

  153. Linda says:

    The fabrics are gorgeous—I love the idea that you will be painting more gray fabrics next year-there are never too many neutrals….

  154. Claudia says:

    Love the fabric line ! And when is the book available?

  155. Anne says:

    I’ve always been a fan of pink and green! And I LOVE your patterns. Keep providing the inspiration!

  156. Kaye M. says:

    I like your new Touch of Whimsy pattern with the flower applique in the corner! And I like how you fussy cut the center for the flower. Your new fabrics look great in this design! I would like to know more about your design process too!!

  157. Bonnie H. says:

    Love your fabric. It’s very enlightening and something you want to run to your nearest fabric shop
    to purchase. Thank you for all your ideas and great work.

  158. Diane R. says:

    As always, I LOVE your color combinations — you are so talented!

  159. Pinky says:

    Let me see, last week it rained 12.5 inches in one night, the basement took on water and the pop-up decided to try life as a boat. I could USE a little whimsy in my life!
    It’s lovely.

    Heather (and Mom), Hats off to both of you for another amazing line of fabric. A friend said to me last week when we were quilting, I dare you be cranky while working with that fabric (it was bright, cheerful, fun). This line makes me think the same …

    Well done!
