So my dear friend, Thomas sent me some of his beloved Jellybean fabric. They are a smaller version of the eggs he created for Pear Tree and I heart them immensely!!! I've been in love with this print since......geez....I think before they were even a fabric. (I recall getting a sneak peek from Mr. Knauer before they went to print.)
Thomas decided to do a little Jellybean-a-Thon and I am all too happy to be playing along. I don't think you're ready for this jelly.
I've been collecting notions and things in preparation for my booth at Quilt Market this Spring. A few days ago, I received a shipment of my favorite zippers from Japan. I was oh so eager and itching to dive into them and knew that the Jellybeans were screaming to be made into wee pouches, just for me. (I never make anything for myself anymore it seems. Who has time?? Am I right??)
I really love the contrast of colors that he used on the various prints and I'm loving that they all just work so well together even though the colors are so vastly different. Nice work my firend!
I especially adore what he did with this group when creating this quilt.
After some close examination of said quilt at QuiltCon, it led me to believe that these fabric would make for an incredible Marcelle Medallion!! Don't you think??? Of course you do! You wouldn't be here if you didn't agree with me, right? Joking. ^_~
Well, time got away from me this week, pouches will have to do for now, but you'll definitely see me revisiting these Jellies for that Medallion! (There's a #MedallionAlong (#MarcelleMedallion) on Instagram! Yay!)
Catch up with the rest of the JellyBean - A - Thon below!
Speaking of eye candy, my third Fat Quarter Gang tutorial is ready to roll. Boucherouite, you say? No, I'm serious, check it out! I LOVE to sew, but every now and then I like to whip up projects that don't require a needle and thread. These boxes seemed to fit the bill. They're going to hang out with me in my studio. Find the tutorial here!
Hey guys! Happy New Year! I know it's almost February, but the year is still new! I hope it's going well for everyone so far.
Busy, busy bee over here. What else is new right? Sheesh. But I'd rather be busy than not, so yay!
As most of you know QuiltCon is happening next month and I'm so gleefuly delighted that I have the oppostunity to be attending the show! I hadn't planned on it because I just wasn't sure how I could swing the trip. Well I suppose I whined enough on Facebook about not going. :P Seriously, I even rallied the troops on FB to start our own 'QuiltCan't' for those of us who weren't going. Haha!
Well, sadly QuiltCan't won't be happening as I was invited by the QuiltCon team to join them as a judge for the quilt competition along with super star and owner of PurlSoho, Joelle Hoverson!! (I'm dying over here, because I SO want to be her when I grow up!)
I managed to fill up my schedule for the show pretty nicely as well.....
Thursday, February 21 at 4:30 - I'll be doing a 30-min meet and greet in with the lovelies of Cloud9 in Demo Area B. I'll talk a wee bit about my new collection 'Tsuru' and show you some lovely samples. We'll also give an EXCLUSIVE preview of my new Spring 2013 collection 'Koi'! Pssst.....Check out the new logo!
Finally, be sure to take some time to swing by the Spoonflower booth. I've designed some little pretties that they will be giving away at their booth! What are said little pretties? Well run over to their booth and grab one before their all gone and find out!
I can't even tell you how stinkin' excited I am to be going to Austin and if you'll be there, please look for me and say 'Hello'! I love making new friends! ^_^
Oh! Contrary to popular belief the show is NOT sold out!! So there's still time to get the ball rolling for a really awesome quilty time!
Happy Monday, lovelies! Good weekend? I certainly hope so.
SO. Tutorial number two from yours truly for the Fat Quarter Gang up in this piece! Word. (I'm especially excited about this post because I used a lightbox that I made to take these photos last night (3am :P). Have you ever used a lightbox before? It's awesome! )
This kit is SO super easy and fast to make and would be great for last minute holiday gift making.
I'm still dying over the smiley face nail clippers I found the other day. How cute are they???
Head on over to the Art Gallery Fabrics blog to learn how to make this sweet and simple little kit. I'm off to go do my nails before the kids get home. ^_~
