Thank you to my beautiful daughter Katie for some amazing photography!!!
So imagine my surprise when I saw lovely images of this beautiful woman in a dress she created using our Border print from Beauty Queen (Valerie) in her dress design. I almost fell off my chair when I got to see her vision in real time. Exquisite. border prints can go a long way but you have to be inspired, you have to know what they can be used for and we think Paisley Farm did an incredible job!! You will be so stuck on her blog!! She does it all so well!!!! Sofia lives in Las Vegas , Nevada and her blog is so inspirational. She loves Floral fabric so I would say she really gets me. I am so excited for you to meet her and see her beautiful dress that I know will make you swoon. I took the same border print and used it on my antique bed as a covering and I just love the results so whatever the use just know you can’t go wrong with a border print..heavenly ideas await you! So be sure to follow Sofia Moore on her blog and Facebook page, we are hoping she does it in other colorways. This is very much like our Angie so I expect to see some of those being created. Thanks Sofia!!! Please show us how you use your border prints!!!
Yup you heard right and we love the editor Katherine Stevenson so much….She’s doing it all right now and boy is she bringing it. Props for the All Star Girl.

Wow I am the luckiest girl I know!!! This past weekend I was unable to attend Quilt Market due to our imminent show here back at home. I was fortunate to be blessed by lovely friends who really did an outrageous job of sharing Lucky Girl with all of you. First of all to know the Long Ladies of Marie Madeline Studios is to love them. Hearts as big as the eye can see. You just want to be around them and be smothered by there openness to love you right back. I am so touched by their gifts and there uncanny ability to make beautiful things. This year with appliques and stunning clothing and fierce patch working I can only pray that they hit the roof in sales!! My understanding was that the booth was always crowded!! I want to thank Freespirit for supplying them with Lucky Girl so they could have everything ready for market. Long Girls what can I say..except your beauty out shined everything ! I will always be your fearless cheerleader and always here for you. Jenny thanks for your satellite reports from the Convention center in Houston you did an amazing job!!! So please venture over they have lots of Lucky Girl in stock and Patterns that will bring a smile to your soul.!!
Here’s the remarkable tote everyone talks about in our Happy Home book. We actually have a beautiful sunhat as well to show you the versatility of quilting cottons, not just for quilts but has expanded to apparel and home dec product categories. We just adore Circa and are so glad you have decided to hoard that line because it will be years before it makes a comeback if at all. It is a classic and will live on long after the shelves are depleted. We thought we’d show you two of the projects from Happy Home done up in Circa for your viewing pleasure. As you all know I have made it my mission to get these books into every sewist’s hands so they can have fun creating all the loveliness inside these books!! I know I belabor the issue but I love that these books connect us all and inform us of the aesthetic that is Sis Boom. We love that you join us in our homage to color and all the artists that have gone before us in celebrating color!
So enjoy making the market tote and sunhat we appreciate you!!
Lovely to meet you!
Like my Hat??
