As I previously mentioned, my professional background includes putting together bedding collections. In fact, long before I joined Sis Boom, I was using Jennifer’s lines to make duvets, sheet sets, dust ruffles, upholstered headboards, toss pillows, curtains and more! While my mind automatically sees a large scale floral and thinks “duvet,” you guys turn the same exact print into the most beautiful clothing, quilts, aprons, shower curtains, etc. I have ever seen! I am CONSTANTLY blown away by your creativity. Since you have been so gracious in sharing your creations with us, I’d thought I’d share with you how my mind views a brand new Jennifer Paganelli collection. And speaking of brand new, I will be using fabrics that can be found in her upcoming “Good Company” line to be released in November 2014.
Reverse of Duvet/Dust Ruffle Options:
Another great suggestion is using a large bold pattern for an upholstered headboard like these:
and use a combination of solid colors found in the print as your duvet!
An upholstered headboard can be found in Happy Home by Jennifer Paganelli!
Keep your creations coming! We love seeing them!!

So it’s official, dates are set and I am hustling in the craft room getting ready for all of you!!!! We have some awesome ideas and they are now coming to life!! Lucky Girl will be in stock by then and you can come get you some. Because the show is early you can even make something up. Yes check the dates, in early November this year, so you will have the gifts you need to celebrate the season. Here are a few of the things we have been preparing. Pricing is all under $40.00 each for items listed below.
I’ve neglected my blog and the work is piling up!! Please forgive me. I devote so much time to sewing these days and I really need to get on the stick? ..off the stick? and why a stick? Anywho I miss you all and I’ve wanted to share with you the greatest project I did this summer …I mean we. Katies boyfriend Berto painted the dresser below with Annie Sloans Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint, forget the paint, that name sends me to the moon!!! I knew I had to have it and yes pricey for a pint but I still have a 1/2 a can left!!! This woman is brilliant, her colors are fabulous and the videos and tips on various sites and youtube make the whole thing go quite quickly. I want to paint everything this color just so I can say Napoleonic Blue..feels so noble..Royal!! So take a look and tell her I sent you. Not that she’ll care or even know who I am….So inhale this beautiful dresser if you like.. The knobs are from Anthropologie but a little to transparant..not showing up..so I painted the back white so no light could shine through and now they pop!!! So I promise from here on forward not to neglect my Blog duties but please say you’ll keep coming..xoxoxo Oh and sweet boy George was such a big help!
PS this has nothing to do with chalkboard paint..
We can feel the romance of Circa!!! We wanted to share with you some of the beauty from our most recent shoot…Some of these are our own patterns revisited and some our from Girls World, again revisited!! We feel so blessed to be working with the master ..Mr. Tim Geaney!!
A favorite personality of the Quilting World is Melissa Stramel , She is simply put..Lovely. She has no idea that I am a big admirer of her work and love for life. She is one of the loveliest folks I have found and she is going after her dreams which is always a positive message to carry to others. The Beloved pattern is hugely popular but because her daughter requested a ball gown she made some changes and added a couple of things and voila, she has reinvented the pattern for her daughters whimsy and now so can you! Purchase the pattern here. We love her use of Happy Land found at Hancock’s of Paducah. Just a reminder Happy Land is moving fast to make room for Circa so don’t delay your decision. Getting harder to find. Melissa thanks for delighting the world with frills and fancy!!!!
Do not miss the raffle June 15th.
So I had my friend Maritza Bermudez who worked on Happy Home with me create this beautiful canopy just like the one in Happy Home. Once the hardware is up you can take this and change it out. I can’t get over this. All these wonderful bouquets cascading down. I tell you I just will never get enough of Circa and I hope you don’t either. So for a fraction of what designer fabrics would cost you can have the same upscale look!!! Seriously this could cost up to $1000.00 to $1500.00 in Ct. easily!!! DIY this was $160.00 for fabric!! For those of us obsessed with fabric that is a drop in the bucket. Back to back these fabrics are just so perfect together. Please note nothing matches, I love just throwing together what I love!!! When you surround yourself with things you love that is your signature look!! So I hope you like what you see not at all fussy, just impromptu. soon the Circa Pillows will be done and we will show you some whole cloth quilts. Enjoy the photos and of course Mr. George in the middle of it all.
