Seaside Cottage Has Arrived!

So remember that box of fabric that I had been “waiting out by the curb” for?  It was supposed to be here quite a while ago and has finally arrived!

This is just my sample yardage, so I am busy planning what quilts I want to make. 

Remember in my last post when I was talking about the things I have tried to move this baby along?   My guess is the best thing to move this process along is a box full of fabric that needs to be sewn up right away.   My theory isn’t scientifically proven, so we will just have to wait and see.  I will keep ya posted.

(BTW – I was really only half serious about those things and would have done all of them anyways, just because I am trying to keep busy and make this last week move along a little quicker).

So, I am busy cutting up fabric.  Arranging pieces on the design wall.  Trying to decide which prints I want to use for borders.  All that good stuff.

The fabric will be in stores in July.  I’ll keep you posted on that too.  In the meantime, I will hopefully get a few things finished to show you.  If not, there will be a baby to show instead!

    Oh Heather, this line is wonderbar. I love that you included pink and grey but I also love aqua and red. Well, the whole thing is great. Can’t wait to get some. Hope that little guy comes along real quick.

  11. Denny Aleckson says:

    Love it! Can’t wait to see what you do with it! Awesome!!! And Good Luck on the arrival of that new baby son! Stay Calm …and breathe…… LOL!

  12. ColleenM says:

    The fabric is gorgeous. I’m not sure what I like better? I love the pinks and greens, but I also love the reds and blues…I guess I just love them all. Thanks for sharing and good luck with the baby:)

  13. Candie from Alaska. says:

    I LOVE all of it, have been looking for a grey in just these colors, cannot wait to find it!

  14. Carrie says:

    Dang. I saw the word “arrived” and I got all excited that Baby Boy Peterson was here!

    Okay, okay… the fabric is gorgeous. Love it. Look forward to getting my hands on some. But I want baby pictures! Soon. (Yes, I bet you’re hoping for that last part too.)

    Good luck and good thoughts to you, Joel and BBP. 🙂

  15. Mary-kay says:

    I love the way the turquoise makes all the colours just pop. Can’t wait to see what you’re going to attempt to make with them in this last week. I hope there’s time. The waiting is the hardest part. I’m currently waiting for my grandson to arrive but that’s not until the end of August. I’m so excitied. I don’t think I even felt like this for my boys. I can’t wait!

  16. Nancy in Utah says:

    I’m like Carrie, the word Arrival had me thinking ‘baby’ for a minute, LOL. But then of course I saw the stack of fabric and that got me all excited again. Heather it is Gorgeous, I think it is my favorite of yours so far! Hoping to be able to pick some up when it makes its appearance in my LQS. Okay, question for ya too, I keep forgetting to ask…are you guys related to any Peterson’s originally from the tiny town of Neola, Utah? Peterson was my maiden name…just wondered. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers for a perfect little baby to arrive post haste! Hugs…

  17. Sandy A in St. Louis says:

    Gorgeous! Thanks for the peek! Love the scroll work and the grays and pinks!

    Good luck on the upcoming arrival! Babies tend to come when they want, not when predicted! 🙂

  18. Dorian says:

    What a beautiful line Heather. I really like those grays and blues!

  19. carol broughton says:

    Your new collection is over the top gorgeous! I am going to be brainstorming for a project with this lovely collection. Best wishes for a speedy and healthy delivery!!

  20. Jocelyn says:

    Oh wow Heather, I love this fabric. The pinks and blues are gorgeous. Can’t wait to see this in person.

  21. HopeTN says:

    Wow, they are beautiful fabrics. Some definite “must-haves” in there.

  22. Ruth B says:

    Gorgeous fabrics!!! I love them all and the colors are perfect! As for hurrying the baby along, that is a tough one. Babies prefer to be born in the middle of the night when you least expect it. Catching you unprepared is their first attempt at having fun. Sewing this week will be good and your house won’t be this quiet again for many years, so enjoy. We are all anxiously awaiting pictures of your little one of course. Best of luck Heather!!

  23. Pam Peterson says:

    The fabrics are fresh and lively. Great for a summer on the beaches of MN! (Are there beaches near Spicer?) Have fun sewing them up.
    And don’t be so quick to want to have that baby. Your life will never ever be the same! (But it’s a blessed change!) God bless you and your family

  24. Sandy Evenson-Hagem says:

    Love these fabrics, what a beautiful selection! Hope that getting busy designing quilts will hasten the arrival of your next beautiful project. I enjoy your design style in both your fabrics and quilt designs and enjoy your blog posts.

  42. Jan says:

    that fabric is awesome. I thought rebel roses would always be my favorite but this is giving it a run for its money. Good luck with keeping busy. Waiting is always the hardest.

  43. Jocelyn says:

    We’re waiting to hear 🙂 Have Joel give us an update!

  44. Linda P says:
