We are so excited about this year’s show and can’t wait to see you there!!
Look who made the cover of this month’s Summer Markets Highlights Magazine:
I’ll give you a hint: It’s not Jennifer’s high school crush, Donny Osmond, that we’re excited about! It’s the pillow featured directly above him that has us jumping for joy!
That’s right, that Jonathan Adler-esque pillow is one that our very own Sis Boom gal, Jennifer Paganelli, designed for Peking Handicraft! So cool, right?! Jen even told me that her inspiration for the design came from the back of a vintage playing card from the 1940s!

Cut from an old quilt that had made its way to the flea has been revived in a beautiful and luxurious way. The beautiful Window Pane Quilt is stunning in this 12 x 24 pillow. Backed with Ticking this 50 year old quilt handmade by some wonderful person has a new legacy as comfort pillows. They are perfect for the Holidays and beyond. We are so happy with the results. We hope you love them $85.00 each!! All different.
They will also be available at the show!!!!
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!!!
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.!!

Christy Bennett had an idea a year ago and after lots of consideration she has launched what I deem to be the next best thing from this world. Are you ready??? Pre-made, lined, drapes!!!! I just think this is an idea that will be a huge hit!! I am over the moon excited. Once they find Darling Drapery they’ll just have to deal with which ones to get!!!! So many possibilities and she makes it affordable!!! Christy I think you are on the tipping point of something big and I know it is going to take off!!! throw drapes up and have a party!!!! Match some pillows and you are good to go. Congrats Christy!!So get over to Etsy and take a look at her collection. I know you will love what you see….which room will you tackle first?
Hawthorne Threads ordered more Circa for those collectors (hoarders) out there! They have cut you fat quarters and charm packs and all that good stuff. So please take what you need to complete your Sis Boom Treasury!! We are so excited this line filled you with inspiration! We love all the ideas and are amazed at the talent out there!! This may be the end of it so grab up when you can!! The sellers shelves are making way for Lucky Girl!!!
