We are thrilled to be in this month’s issue of Homespun magazine out of Australia. Older fans might recognize this photo from a few years ago, but it’s a timeless idea worth sharing again. Here, Jennifer used her grandmother’s yo-yo quilt for the upholstered headboard. You know how we love mixing vintage looks with the new here at Sis Boom! Pillows by Jennifer for Peking Handicraft. Photo by the uber talented Tim Geaney.
Below is a picture of the magazine cover. Its worth seeking out for our Australian fans. Interested fans outside of Australia can download a digital copy as well. It’s a lovely issue loaded with ideas. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
Uber talented Jo Avery has done it again with this masterful quilt using Sis Boom’s newest line Nostalgia. The quilt debuts on the cover of Issue 3 of Today’s Quilter available now. Pick up a copy today to learn how to make this gorgeous quilt. Jo uses Nostalgia for the bowls on the front and Elyse in Pink from the Caravelle Arcade line for the back. It reminds me a bit of vintage Pyrex bowls which have been a super hot collectable the last few years. Love how this quilt is modern and traditional at the same time. Thanks Jo, from bringing the Nostalgia line to life!
What have you been making with the Nostalgia line? Share with us on Facebook and Instagram. We love hearing from you.

Can you keep a secret? Since I totally trust my Paganelli Peeps, I’m going to let it all out…just don’t tell my boss…
You guys, I have the BEST job in the world! I get to be surrounded by incredible people and breathtaking fabrics all day. We chat, we work, we craft, there are puppies here…what more could you ask for? I feel so incredibly lucky and grateful to have landed a job with Sis Boom that if someone dared me to eat dirt, I’d totally do it!
So, what has me jumping for joy today? The answer is: the job perks, of course!
Yesterday the most incredible dress arrived at the office and I got to try it on!!
This patchwork Good Company (in stores November 2014) dress was inspired by a J.Crew silhouette and the seamstress absolutely nailed it! Not only was it super comfortable, but it ended up being super convenient during a business meeting as well. When speaking about Jennifer’s upcoming line, Good Company (did I mention it will be available in stores November 2014), I simply stood up to reveal what was to come!
What else did I do for the hour I spent in the dress? Craft and snap some selfies, of course!
Hope everyone enjoys the sneak peek at the collection!
Nothing motivates us harder at Sis Boom than the love we receive from all of you so today we’re celebrating Jenny Eliza through your eyes! So here are some “#JennyEliza” pics we found within the past week on Instagram! We hope they bring you as much joy as they bring us:Keep the photos coming!!–Lisa
