Thanks for listening if you tuned in to my chat with Pat Sloan on Monday fr American Patchwork & Quilting Radio. If you missed it, you can still listen to the podcast. Click on the link below:
First of all, I have a new fabric line that quilt shop owners are able to order now and it will be in stores in June 2013. It is called Nordic Visions and is totally inspired by my Scandinavian heritage. I love the mixture of traditional prints with the modern and the colorways will give your quilts wonderful contrast and variety.
I have 2 new patterns that will be ready to ship March 1st.
Nordic Christmas is a very Scandinavian ispired Christmas quilt with a modern spin. It combines some of the motifs I grew up with around the Christmas season like the 4 advent candles, folded paper hearts we used to make and the very traditional scandinavian snowflake found in knitting and embroidery. Even though the fabric line is not a Christmas line the reds, greys, blacks and whites with a touch of green and gold give it the perfect modern look. The pattern consists of 10 blocks so stores can offer it as a Block of the Month.
The blocks are mostly pieced with a few that have some simple fusible machine appliqué.
The second pattern is a new strip pattern, called Strip Ribbons. There you can see an example of combining all of the prints into a quilt and it is so fun. The pattern offers 4 different sizes and uses 2-1/2" strips of course.
Me and pat also talked about a new book I am working on right now. It will be released for spring Quilt Market in Portland. It is a new Fast & Furious book but the final title is not quite ready yet, I have a couple of working titles going right now!
If you have any of these books and have enjoyed some of the projects, I would love to hear which kinds of projects you would like to see in the new book.
What do you think the new one should be called?
Fast & Furious ....????
