New Line of Fabric!


After months of months of resistance, I finally folded and decided to do a fabric line. It took a full year of doodling in church, car rides, tennis matches, and at my computer desk to get this right. It took endless conversations on the phone with Lila and Lucy about whether or not I wanted to add some more crazy to my life, many nights chatting with my husband about the possibilities, and a nudge or two from my friend Harriet at Henry Glass to get me here, but I did it!

I had some snippits of it up last week, but it needs some tweeking so I took them down for now. If you got a chance to see it while it was up, lucky you! If not, you'll have to wait a bit. Sorry :(

I'll have a Quilt Market post up in a day or 2!
