Oh What Fun It Is!
I’ve been designing fabrics for a few years now, and am absolutely loving it! I’m often asked how and why I started designing. The simple answer is, I couldn’t find any orange in the 1930′s reproductions! Well, not just orange, but other saturated pastels. When I looked at my old quilts, like this Seven Sisters, I loved the strong colors. Sure, I loved the faded pastels of Thirties quilts, too, but I wanted both!
I design fabrics for Timeless Treasures, a family owned company in New York. I love, love, love working with them. Every fabric line is a collaboration. The whole process, from concept to getting to feel the fabric between my fingers is so rewarding. I also get to design projects from each new line. Now I ask you, playing with fabric–does it get any better than that?
Here’s my latest line, Sweet Pea.
I always do a panel with each of my lines. This one is little doll dresses. I call this Baby Doll.
Here’s the Timeless Treasures booth at Quilt Market–well, at least the part with my fabric line. I designed the Lollipop quilt. And isn’t the Sweet Pea Jumper adorable!?!
Here are some shots of my earlier lines with Timeless. Through My Window is a Redwork/Blackwork line.
And a sweet floral line called Daisy A Day.
Oh, and that Seven Sisters quilt, I even did an “opportunity cloth” inspired by it.
