Taking a deep breath as I type this. I feel like I’ve been squeezed into a giant zip-lock bag sharing the space with nervousness, fear and anxiety for what I’m about to show. It’s one thing to make something - and your mom loves it and then puts it on the fridge. It’s something else to make something - and you hope others will like it, and bring it into their homes, and make beautiful things with it - for themselves and for others. Hitting the “publish” button on this post is going to feel like I’m ripping off a band-aid. Two of my Lecien sisters, Bari and Lynette, have already posted their strike-offs for their Spring lines… ok, I’m jumping in too.
My next line will debut in May at Quilt Market in Salt Lake City - and should be available retail by June or July. I’ll share more info about it as it gets closer to Market-time. Here is my latest round of strike-offs - little tastes of color, scale, saturation, etc before the fabric is milled. It’s now pretty much good to go, just a few minor tweaks and off to the mill it goes. My hope is it’s liked, and I hope it’ll be wanted in peoples hands, homes and snuggled around the ones they love.
