Soft Spoken

Lynn Harris's quilts speak to me I love how an innocent golden brown pinwheel glides over the surface of her Lucky Girl Quilt.  It is indeed magical and I am always happy with the choices she makes when doing a Sis Boom Quilt. Lynn is wonderful and now has a long arm quilting machine so talk to her.  I send it to her and she does the quilting. This collection reminds me of an old quilt with random pieces thrown together but it's the darks and the lights that create the story!!! I love the navy in this collection because it grounds everything else.  Thanks for the classic you created Lynn. I am in heaven....seriously!! tiny glory coloredup

A wonderful tote!!

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!

Lovely to meet you!

Circa Land

I can't get over the beauty you are all creating with Circa!!  You have all been so patient so loving so supportive of one another, sharing and giving yardage away to help another quilter or passionate sewist!  You are all making me so happy and I can't get over how many lovely people knock on my FB page everyday. You are all so delightful and you know I love seeing those pretties you are sewing.  I don't have to tell you the word on the street about Circa and it all started here by listening to your requests and at the same time upholding the Sis Boom Legacy of Happy!! So check these out.  Another one of our Aussie friends is creating to die for sunsuits that are just dreamy! Lil Luscious on facebook needs to get more in stock because she does it so well.  Serenity Worell you are making our day!!!! She's taking orders..just sayin.  

Something for the Boys

I bow down to Carla Crim on this one Not as easy as most of our patterns the Ethan and Marco patterns will challenge you to take the next step.  In true Sis Boom form Carla writes it so the beginner can stay engaged and create something wonderful for the boys/ men in your life.  Carla will not bring a pattern to market that all levels cannot create. We are so excited about this! Folks were so enthusiastic about seeing a men's shirt in Happy Home that we decided to offer it in our pattern collection.  Kudos to the Scientific Seamstress for bringing it to life!!!  So let's create!!! They are in our shop and will be distributed to our sellers very soon.Please note these are long sleeves with cuffs we forgot to show you them with the cuff..next photoshoot. Fabric found here. Thanks Hawthorne Threads!  

Drum Roll Please

Circa is coming and the anticipation is building and before you know it you will be making such lovelies as these. I tell you this is a long wait even for me because I want to see your creations.  We call this one a two bolter for stores because we know it's going to fly off the shelves by all the clamor on facebook.  It is Circa, it's kind of all your faves wrapped into one introduction!!  So big thanks to the stores online and brick and mortar we are so grateful to you for servicing these good folk!!!  My other favorite expression is hoardworthy because we don't want another Flower Power Fiasco.  If you love it, go for it..The other day two yards of Loopy vintage Floral went for $300.00 dollars on ebay!!!  Yowsers!  So let's be sensible and go for it now!!  Then in 10 years we will all sell it on ebay..Me too!!!  Seriously you guys make it so fun and I love to giggle with you cause at the end of the day we all love to have a big stash and the one with the most wins!!! :))))) All my love, Jennifer By the way the first pillow is a project in our Girls World Book that is sweeping the Nation..(not kidding)
