A Little Whimsy

Anyone that knows me very well knows that I like anything that's whimsical. Some of the words used in the dictionary to describe whimsical are: playful; light-hearted or amusing; quaint; fanciful.

That's one reason why I was so excited about Fig Tree & Co. ,Joanna Figueroa's new fabric collection for Moda.

Joanna featured her first retro kids line at Quilt Market in Houston. She said, " I have been so excited to do a kid’s line even though my munchkins are mostly a bit too old to enjoy the fabric and the goodies we’re making from it… the youngest of our brood is in heaven! If she thought it was all for her before, now she is actually right!

The collection is called Whimsy. And although it is a kid’s line, it is also versatile enough to be a fresh, stand alone Fig Tree line, blending perfectly with all the other lines before and after it. If you remove the 2 more clearly “kid” prints-the rest of the line is classic fresh vintage Fig Tree! So really it is like having 2 lines in one."

This fabric has the most wonderful feel and has the soft fabric colors in beach, milk and light reds that are so classic Fig Tree.

I guess I better quit talking about it and actually show you this wonderful fabric. Of course, I had to add a little bit of whimsy!

You can find all 19 of these fabrics in my shop. I also have 2 new Fig Tree & Co. patterns that I'll be listing called Jelly and Jam and Sunwashed that look beautiful with the new Whimsy fabric.

So, head on over to my shop to view all the new lines I've gotten in this month. I'll be sure to leave the light on.

If you are a fan of Denyse Schmidt and her Katie Jump Rope collection by Free Spirit, then you will like reading Jaime's informational and fun blog called Room for Young Ones. Her recent post is featured on Denyse and some of the inspiration from her collection. The Katie Jump Rope fabric has been one of my shop's best sellers, especially since it's discontinued.

Jaime gives many ideas for children's rooms from wall art to furniture to floor coverings and gives information on where to find items shown on her blog. So, if you are needing some design inspiration for your child's room, you might find just what you're looking for at Room for Young Ones.

The UPS man has become my new best friend lately. He brought me another box from Moda. I absolutely adore everything French country, so I fell in love with this collection when Mr. T and I were at Quilt Market in Houston. It's American Jane's, A Breath of Avignon by Sandy Klop. The colors are in fabulous blues and greens, with warm yellows and reds that are true to the French country style.

The latest edition of Quilt Almanac 2010 shows the border fabric used to make a tablecloth and napkins designed by Sandy, and the pattern can be purchased from American Jane. Wouldn't you love to have this to cover your table this summer?

Or, how about a quilt like this one that we saw made from A Breath of Avignon fabric at Quilt Market.

I have the whole collection....yes, all 31 fabrics in my shop.

I hope you've enjoyed your "tour" through the South of France. Alright, we can imagine, can't we?? Anyway, I hope you visit my shop and see all the newest fabrics I've gotten in. I'll even leave the light on for you:)

Spring in a Box

I don't know about you, but I am definitely ready for Spring! This is our second go-around with snow here in Arkansas. An inch or two may not be so unusual, but 8 to 10 inches is NOT normal for here!!

Here are the views I saw outside our door this morning.

I'm a sunny day type of person, and I was just about ready to go for some light therapy!! when this box arrived on my doorstep.

I call it my "Spring in a Box" because it was filled with bolts of the most beautiful Spring fabric, Verna by Kate Spain for Moda. It was just what I needed to lift those winter time blues away.

You can find these fabrics already listed in bundles and individually in my shop. Here, you'll see just a sampling of what I have in the shop. I hope it gets you ready to anticipate the arrival of Spring, also. Enjoy!
