Your compassion your love of fabric did not go unnoticed and I love you for that.  Thanks for always loving what we do and making our hearts sing!!!Mint

Bittersweet

The bus went by today and it's always a trigger for longing..It went by so fast and yet I am so grateful to be present for all of it.  There is so much that can take us out of the day to day , we see it all the time.  I 'm just so glad to have felt all the good the bad and the ugly.  There is something so precious about being present and available to our kids.  I love mine to bits and  I do miss the wonder that they experience in front of you every day..It's exquisite.  So when I saw this beautiful quilt on the beach that Jane from Maiden Jane made it made me miss their youth even more.  She created something so beautiful that will be packed with memories over the years!  Have you met Jane be sure to follow her she is delightful.  Crazy Love is no longer being produced but lots of places carry them.  Here's one place I found. Quilt Home has a ton!!

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!!

Magical

We had a magical photoshoot with Tim Geaney our favorite photographer in the whole wide world.  His photos are just soulful and touching.  We can't believe our good fortune when we get to have fun with him in the jungle or in his studio.  We love a collaboration and we love trying new things, it's how we grow into ourselves.  I hope these photos engage you and encourage you to be expressive and enjoy the process!! Check out all the inspiration!!   We love the the Marco Pattern on women..great for summer!!!!      

We Love a Flying Girl!

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.

Wholecloth Quilts from Circa!

Something very big coming to Sis Boom wholecloth Quilts made in the USA.  As you know not many designers offer wholecloth quilts because they are so costly to make. We pay a huge premium to do business in America but we also know this is something that many of you want. We are starting with twin bedspread quilts only!! These are an investment for sure but so worth it!!! These are heirloom quilts. These will last a lifetime just like our ancestors quilts!  They will travel with your children throughout their lives and the beauty is these are ready made from our Circa Line, no custom available but we would like to know if folks would like to see Queen and King so please let us know.  We hope to hear from you!! These are $400 each and please no hate mail, we are trying our best to keep them made in America. Once we get into volume orders we may be able to reduce the price. But we are years from that. Hope you like them. They will be available in our shop very soon!!
