Seaside Cottage

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!

    Absolutely beautiful Heather! This may be my favorite of all you collections so far. Yummy! Hugs…

  17. roadsage1 says:

    This is a beautiful line. I can’t wait for it to come out. I will be spending some money on it! I have never liked grey, but I’ve seen it more and more, have bought a few grey fabrics, and now I am liking it a lot! Especially with the turquoise. Thanks you!

  18. Samantha K says:

    Amazing!!!! I LOVE them!!! And after it being bitter cold, and now snow today, this really takes a person away to that cottage on the beach!! I’m thinking I may have to set aside the fabric I’ve already purchased for a quilt for our bedroom and wait until this comes out–I love all of the colors in it and think they would really brighten our room up!!

    It amazes me how long it takes from the time you create it until it finally makes its way into the quilt shops-How do your survive the anticipation of waiting for it to arrive so you can see it and create beautiful things with it?

  19. Denice says:

    Love it! Would make a beautiful bag of sometype.

  20. Candie says:

    I really love this line, it is exactly what I have been looking & looking for! Cannot wait to get my hands on it and sew up a quilt for my cabin… Good job Heather…

  21. Christy Q says:

    Gorgeous! Love this new line and can’t wait to see it in the stores!

  22. Jennifer W says:

    Beautiful! My husband will be glad it’s not in stores yet, I already bought too much this month. I’ll be saving for June though. Worth the wait.

  23. Carol Jacobs says:

    Love it! Especially the green and pink. Can’t wait until it comes out.

    By the way, I am very excited for your good news. Thanks for sharing it with us. Blessings on all three of you.

  24. Jocelyn says:

    Oh wow Heather, the colors are gorgeous!! I love this line!

    Love this line. Two of my favorite colors – grey and turquoise. Can’t wait to see it in my favorite quilt shop. Where were you when I was looking for grey a year or more ago.

  26. Alisa says:

    I like it! Very nice.

  27. Cosmos says:

    I love it! I’ve been drawn to the ocean side cottage theme, too. No stripes this time?

  28. Ruth B says:

    Those are exactly the colors in my house! The flowers kind of remind me of Rebel Roses and I can’t wait to get my hands on some. Beautiful collection as always!

  29. vivoaks says:

    The colors are a combination that I don’t think I’d like if it was described to me, but seeing it with my own eyes shows me it’s gorgeous! Congrats!

  30. Susan says:

    I love it, especially that cherry red! Beautiful colors and designs.

  31. Megan says:

    I can’t wait for June! This line is beautiful, I love all the color options! I will have to keep a lookout on the Fat Quarter Shop. Unfortunately, my local quilt stores don’t carry Henry Glass. So, I always have to resort to the Internet, thank goodness for the Internet!

  32. westcoastauntie says:

    Your fabric always makes me feel happy. Love the grey colors. Will you have it in time to make something for baby???

  33. Jen says:

    Oh. I think this is my favorite line from you! It’s BEAUTIFUL! I will be breaking my “no more fabric” rule and purchasing some of it for sure!

  34. Kaye M. says:

    I love your new fabric line!! Frankly, sometimes I think grey looks cold and boring but the way you do it, it looks great! Congrats!

    Wow Heather. Your fabric line is BEAUTIFUL. I have just read through your posts about your baby ‘waiting’ game. God is good isn’t he. He makes sure we can deal with what he gives us. Your baby will be blessed with loving parents and a really creative Mum. I will be keeping my eye out here in OZ for your fabrics. The would go well with some of my favourite quilts from your books.

  64. Penny says:

    The color palette you have chosen for your new fabric Seaside Cottage is bright and cheerful! The fabric brings a huge smile to my face as I remember the many wonderful times visiting the North Carolina ocean shore for a week during the summer:) Can hardly wait to purchase yardage when the line becomes available in June.

  65. Victoria says:

  69. Ruby Taylor says:

    I know this is a long shot but any chance I could find “seaside cottage” material any where?

    • Hi Ruby,

      Thanks for your interest in my Seaside Cottage fabric. It has been out of print for a long time, so you probably won’t find it anywhere. I do have a very small amount here, so I might be able to send you some, depending on what you are looking for. You can let me know what you are thinking and I will check my stash 🙂
