Do you know Thomas Knaeur?? Fabric designer ultimista at Andover Fabrics!! When I first met him I knew he was a good guy you could just tell!! He was doing a patch quilt I believe with over 500 fabrics and none could be repeated..Am I right?? Listen it could have been 5 Billion I just knew it was a challenge that was daunting. Thomas is fairly new to quilting I believe but impressed with folks like Dan Rouse he has quickly adapted and I have to say his quilts for me are just amazing. So when he had an idea for Girls World Vibe I quickly obliged and you can see why. The results are just incredibly momentous. I mean that.. I don’t throw around big words (well I do) but totally genuine I love the dynamic of planes he has created here and the rhythmic pattern of color. His daughter Bee loves her quilt. So that makes two big fans!! Me and the Bee!! So please get one of our favorite online destinations Fat Quarterly for his review of the tool that made it all happen for him.!! Thomas explains how he achieved this wonderful curve appeal quilt!! (God I’m clever) Thanks Thomas for asking. This is such a win win!! My friends get to see how Girls World Vibe whips up!! Nicely done Thomas!! See Thomas’s new line for Andover here.. called Flock!! Girls World Vibe Fat Quarters here. Fat Quarter Shop bundles!!
Sometimes I’m asked how do I start my day??? Lots of caffeine and a quiet request for help throughout my day. Then onto the task at hand. I love to play, I love to create I love to hand sew and I love to write. I walk Mr. George cause that’s equally important to me. Our walks are slow and we talk , we share secrets, his secrets always have something to do with chasing squirrels. I talk out loud to him especially when we see deer. He loves to watch the deer and seems quite respectful especially after a doe stamped her front leg as he approached her offspring just being curious. We see birds , we count the ducks in the pond, we talk to neighbors especially the ones with 4 legged friends. We look for new smells and places to mark. It has to be a leisure walk because when I’m rushed and hurried that’s how the day goes. If I make a conscious decision to be deliberate and serene that’s how the day unfolds. Let me tell you the sky could fall and there is nothing more important than time away with God and nature for me. So that’s how the day starts. Then I take quite a bit of time to say hey to all of you and thank you for just being you, being giddy, being playful, sharing and giving each other salutes and acknowledgement of a job well done whooping it up on facebook and twitter. (Pinterest I’m coming….) I mean it nothing in this world moves me more than folks helping one another and you all do it everyday. Someone said our customer service was the very best, she was referring to all of the friends of Sis Boom who helped her locate a fabric. You guys rock and make me feel so blessed to be part of this community of loving peeps. So come join the conversation you will be welcome with open arms!! So playing yesterday and I can not stop!!!! The birdies may be sold in kit form what do you think??? The collage is me sewing to paper, I am addicted, changing and filling bobbins like a pro..move out da way!!
Do you believe this?? I just discovered this shop Kenilworth Place on Etsy and I am head over heels with their fabric choices. Seriously we sell pillows this size for 3 times more so if you have something coming up, some event you want to make pretty this price point will convince you to dress the place up!!! These pillows are gorgeous and use some of the very rare hard to find fabrics from Sis Boom. Kenilworth, Hats off !! You beguile the imagination. Seriously amazing prices for 16 x 16 !!! Seriously three pillows makes such a statement and at these prices fuggettaboudit !!
