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!!
Erica Hill of Stripes and Ruffles tested this wonderful pattern for Whimsy Couture . We are loving this one in the Crazy Love fabrics. What a wonderful combo. I must say that daughter of Erica’s is adorable!!!!! I am smitten!! The fabrics can be found here. and here Also try ebay and etsy.
Please also if you are a store or brick and mortar and are reading this please add your store and location. We have lots of readers and folks looking for fabric locally. We will also put it on facebook!!!
Nice job Erica and we will be watching for further great looks from you!!!
Ok so let’s have a serious chat!! I want to help the brick and mortars of the world. Maybe a shout out to your local store for carrying Sis Boom fabrics or a photo of old Sis Boom stock and a location they can be found. We have a need for old stock!!! People scour the internet day and night for our first lines. Most will pay top dollar! We also want to get to know you if you are carrying Sis boom fabric and get you on our locator list. It’s hard in a world of online sellers to find a spot but we want you to know we are holding a place for you..Having a sale?? Tell us so we can let your neighborhood know. These quilters and clothing designers will travel!!! That much we do know. We have an active community on facebook. Alas the dreaded facebook but it’s amazing how fast we can get up to speed to see our favorite fabrics. Brick and mortars, dead Sis Boom stock, can’t move, post your photos to Jennifer Byrne Paganelli and we will chat you up!!! Better yet show us what you have and then our sewists will make the trip. Are you a fan of Sis Boom ??? Take a photo in your favorite store that carries Sis Boom and enter to win 5 yards of Circa!!!! Ends August 31st!! We will be sharing more about that. We want every seller to be an online seller , to be known for carrying Sis Boom. We are an eager bunch and we love to chat!!! Got a favorite store in your area?? Give them a shout out and tag me , tell me what town they are in and if they have a website or not. Shout out to Trains and Fabrics in Tacoma Washington, who doesn’t even do email for carrying some of our new lines. They now have a facebook page!!
Have any of these?? Folks are looking. Do you ship? Do you ship internationally?
Check out this stunner from Jack and Mae!!!! We woke up and just had to share..lots of tutorials on line just google rag quilts. These make great gifts because they are not as labor intensive a good beginner quilt I should say. My daughter made one at sewing camp when she was 12. I love the mix of Bohemia and the exuberance of color. Such a beauty. Sarah and Liz we love what you are up too keep it coming we want to see. They also make sweet tea wallets so you are never without your fave..very cool.
Zabtree Couture you have quite the eye. OMG it takes a special vision to put these fabrics together in this ingenious way but I think the theorey is if you love it others will too. I never would have put these together but omg I can’t stand it ,thrilled with the outcome and I know it is going to inspire others to really just may I say “CLASH” if it feels right do it!!! Sometimes a matchy matchy world can close us off from amazing options but friends of Sis Boom all know to do whatever their heart calls them to do! We see it over and over with the folks highlighted on the blog. We love your signature, we want to see what you are up to!! These photos give permission for others to do the same. I get in trouble because I’m not so matchy matchy but my heart flattens a bit when all the blues match, takes the fun out of creativity. There is an energy that we don’t see other places when folks express themselves in this colorful way. Zabtree you rock my casbah!! Theresa Abel Martin you go girl. Find her on facebook.
PS. take a look at the lining of the dress!
Send us your photos join the conversation on facebook.
We all love a chevron that is for sure and a Chevron quilt is up there with my all time favorite things. Jamie Harned is a very long time friend who has taken center stage here many times and we just love her. She’s one of the happiest souls on the planet and shares her stash and talents with others. Jamie created this Happy Land beauty and the other beautiful soul Melissa Averinos will be quilting it for her. Melissa is an amazing artist, textile designer, and quilter all wrapped into one. This is going to be incredible when it’s all done but I just had to share. Great job Jamie !!
Madeline speaking! SO pumped to be up in hurr on the blog these past few days. Jen has been uber busy in her craft room. Not sure what she’s up to, but when she comes downstairs she is COVERED in glitter. Hmmm.
So. Let’s talk Circa.. I’ve been dying to see a Circa quilt and kinda of wanted to see one NOW.. I decided to build a virtual quilt, and please… don’t judge… Admitting that the process made me sort of dizzy, and I’m not sure if my scale is anywhere near correct.. but I kinda like it!
Now I wish I had it in front of me so I could wrap myself up and have Sis Boom day dreams! Clearly I don’t have quilting talents– Let me just put it out there– I so admire all of you beautiful, talented quilters who whip of magic every day. Will you accept my virtual quilting capabilities? Please? (Someone say yes)
Happy Sunday ! Be cozy, be warm, be happy!
OK OK.. so maybe I made two quilts.. Pull my leg, why dontcha.. This one was created using what I found to be called the yankee doodle something? Is that right?!
Ever wonder what to do with all of your tiny fabric scraps?! We love Mod Podge and scrap garlands (get inspired!).. but we love this the MOST…
Melissa P of 100 Billion Stars has taken some scraps that sat idle in a baggy and gave them a new way to shine and be useful! It reminds us of a beautiful Sis Boom rainbow! What’s better than that?!
Peep Melissa’s Bits and Pieces blog post for the full scoop!
