On your mark. Get set. Drool!

September 25th, 2011

I just got a big box of Lecien fabrics designed by my Lecien sisters - and holy edemame and wow, wow, wow are they beautiful! Please don’t hate me - I show them not to make anyone envious of my loot, (especially since it’s not yet available) - but rather as a public service announcement.  It’s for the greater good.

1) If you’re going to Quilt Market and plan on going to Sample Spree - GET TO THE LECIEN TABLES FIRST. These puppies are going to sell fast.  Fast.  Fast, fast, FAST!  If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard, “I didn’t get there [Lecien table] in time!”… I’d be loaded.  Don’t make me make you give me a dollar.

2) Make your local quilt shop aware of these fabrics and ask them to go visit the Lecien booth at Market and place orders to fill their shop with happiness for you.

And now for the show.

Lecien’s newest designer (squeal!) is Natalie Lymer, and wow, wow, wow how beautiful her Woodland line is! So cute and so rich in color - every thread sings with cuteness and is pure Natalie. I love Woodland so much I cried. And then I hugged it.  And I’m soooo happy Natalie is a part of the Lecien family!

St. Ives
Sarah Fielke does it again - another beautiful line I can’t wait to dig in and cut into. Something about Sarah’s designs that make my heart race and have me wanting to cut them up and put them back together again - and see what happens next! It’s like Sarah’s that beloved jr. high science teacher (like mine - Miss Edna Finger), and she’s got beakers of bubbling and gurgling ingredients, and you can’t wait to see what happens when they all come together. It’s gonna be magic!

Folk Heart
Every time Rosalie Quinlan comes out with a new line, I swear she’s crawled into my head and made it just for me. Now that I’ve seen Folk Heart, I’m checking for cameras and monitoring devices in my house. Rosalie captures all the things I love like no one else… vintage 30’s fabrics, modern fabrics, German looking designs and the candy colors I love so much. Thank you Rosalie for designing Folk Heart just for me for us!

Flower Sugar
I think I weep every time Lecien comes out with a new edition of Flower Sugar. I love you Flower Sugar - will you marry me?

It’s already in stores and debuted at Spring Market in Salt Lake City, but I just now got my hands on it. Whitewash is by Meg Hawkey of Crabapple Hill, and is just as the name implies.  It is neutral utopia and so beautiful!  It’s calling to my inner harvest and begging me to use it in a Halloweeny way with some of my Happy Mochi Yum Yum.   Thinking I just might have found what I want to make -  my Swoon pattern from Camille!
