So my first line for Joann fabric and craft store is perfect for Christmas stockings banners, and tree skirts!! Just take a look at all of these beauties and the combos of lettering and backgrounds are endless. Throw in some James Thompson Ticking (available in so many rich colors) We are thrilled with the stocking and hope to have a pattern next year in time for the Holidays. The vintage pom poms are all available on Ebay! Check out the green dots and the red dots cause they are fab for Christmas!

Ok it’s no secret. I just love her heart and her ability to make you feel welcome and part of something great. She is so super excited about life, about love, about quilts!! Most of you know her through her show Quilty on PBS. Recently I had the good fortune to meet Mary when she came to my home about two months ago and I tell you It was if I knew her my whole lifetime. It was girl talk central and I just so enjoyed her company As well as my all around Gal Pal Susan Morgan who introduced us. Believe me an overnight was not out of the question but they had plans the next day. …. I pictured us in (what else) Pajamas getting CRay CRay. What can I say? I actually had the opportunity to fly to Iowa yup with Springs Creative for the Jenny Eliza Brand for JoAnns Fabric and Craft and tape a PBS show for Fons and Porter..yes!! in the same exact room as Marianne Fons and Liz Porter, I know I know I know…so giddy and trying to act professional when inside I was like Check Me Out!!!!! So Mary has just come out with an amazing Quilt Book called Make + Love Quilts and will be signing May 20th at City Quilter in NYC from 6-8!! That’s a big deal and a big honor for anyone. She is so approachable so fun and so easy to be with oh and did I say her quilts are divine?? I meant to open with that. Please go to her facebook watch her gorilla marketing style video for Make + Love Quilts and her opening a fedex package with her book inside and then you will see why I love her so much. Like all of us in the SisBoomer Jenny Eliza Family we know how to have fun…Fabric and quilts just make us fun to be with!! Oh and get a daily dose of Mary at her blog PaperGirl !

You have to love Violet Fields new pattern. We are crazy about it. The Emmaline dress can be found here. We adore it in Circa and love how the Taylor in blue was just made for little girls, priceless, precious!!!! I just couldn’t wait to show you this photo and have you watch the fabric come to life. An abundance of floral bouquets tells a beautiful story on this little girl. Fabric found here.
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!!
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 !!
