Introducing FARMHOUSE II

Hello my Quilting Friends! We are slowly digging ourselves out from Quilt Market and I have so many different things to share with you but I thought it was high time that I introduced everyone to our brand new upcoming collection, FARMHOUSE II. Due to the popularity of our first Farmhouse collection [to be completely honest, it might have been one of my all time favorite fabric collections that I have ever designed] several years ago, I thought it was time to do a "take two" with new prints and the same classic color palette that we all fell in love with the first time around. I still get emails today of people who share with me that Farmhouse was one of their all time favorites or the reason they got back into quitting. I love to hear those kinds of stories.  There is something about this…

The Vintage Sampler BOM…finished!

Edit:  The backing is the grey/cream sampler fabric #37061 in the grey color [its an older fabric that I am not sure tha is available anywhere which is why I didn't specify what it was] . The quilter is Diana Johnson of course… I can't believe I forgot to give you her name! If you are interested in having her quilt something for you, just email me and I will send your info to her!   I could say a lot of things and explain a lot of blocks and quilting, etc…. but I know you just want to see the pics of the quilting so here they are as requested. The quilt is not even completely bound yet, but close enough! We bound in red and backed in a cream sampler print from Julie & Eric Comstock, Baby Jane collection. The tiny…

Vintage Farmhouse BOM on its way…

We are working like crazy to get ready for our upcoming 12 DAY OF CHRISTMAS SALE coming up soon…. [for those of you who have never done this sale with us, we will have more info soon/for those of you who know what is coming, get ready! But I thought I would pop my head in for a quick moment and show you some quick pics of the Vintage Farmhouse Block of the Month quilt. It is finally put together and on its way to the quilter. I cannot wait to see it all finished and quilted and bound…. and beautiful! I am so in love with this quilt ladies, I can't even tell you!         Its a dreary kind of day so the photos are not the greatest but I thought it was time to at lesast show you something. We…

Vintage Farmhouse BOM

Good morning everyone! At first I hesitated to post more about our Vintage Farmhouse BOM because we had so many of you that wanted to join and we just didnt have enough spots for all of you. We ran out of a few key pieces of fabric early on and weren't able to accomodate everybody. We always try to plan for the biggest number possible, but you often surprise us with your tremendous interest and then we are stuck. Sorry about that. All that to say, I wasn't going to talk too much about it given the shortage. But since there ARE so many of you who are working on it and after receiving yet more emails and commments that you really want to feel connected and to see the progress… here goes a little photo journey of some of the blocks. Some of…

The Vintage Farmhouse BOM

    I fell in love with this vintage sampler the moment I came across the picture. How I wish I could have seen it in person! There was just something about it that charmed me instantaneously. It was classic and quirky all at the same time and we thought the vintage color scheme was just perfect. It is a friendship sampler from the late 19th Century and we don't know much more about it than that. But I thought it was perfect for a little reproduction…. and so our project began.     In our version I have simplified several of the blocks, taken out the saw block which was a little too quirky for me and turned the house around so that it faced vertical instead of horizontal. We have used a few of our favorite blocks several times throughout the quilt and will give…
