April 2nd, 2012

I’m so excited I can hardly stand it! Next month in Kansas City at the International Quilt Market my Winterkist line is going to debut! Not only is Gnoma Claus coming back (ish), he’s going to be in SIX colors!  Winterkist is not a sequel to Holiday Happy - but rather Winterkist is everything I wanted Holiday Happy to be and then some (not that I didn’t love my first baby). Winterkist is a mash-up of rain, snow, puddles, Gnoma Claus on Botox, and crazy bright colors to warm up the dark Winter months (or as we call the dark of Winter in NW Oregon: Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall).

Another exciting change is that Gnoma Claus won’t come on a panel like he did on Holiday Happy - but now he’ll be on actual yardage. That means more Gnoma per yard + usable yardage! Fussy cut or not, it’s a gnoma-fiesta by the yard. You can see how it all works by having a sneak peek inside the little Winterkist Booklet I made for Lecien to hand out at Market.  Here’s a snapshot of the booklet:
Winterkist (by me!)

There are 30 SKU’s in all, 5 prints each in Pink, Orange Sherbet, Red, Aqua (or teal), Lime and Graphite. I don’t know what I’m most excited about… the Orange Sherbet or the Graphite. Not yo momma’s holiday colors, fo sho!  Well, not my momma’s colors.  And if you are one of my kids - in that case it is yo momma’s holiday colors.  Winterkist is still being milled, so what I’m showing are my final round of strike-offs:

Since my sample yardage is not yet here, I’m waiting to share my freebie pattern that’ll be available at Lecien’s websites. The pattern will be available at Quilt Market time (end of May). I’ve been playing with color combos. It’s like play-dough for the quilter/sewist in me.

(I want to throw in some Lime and some purple solids!)

I’m also really excited about my selvage.

I love a great selvage, and Lecien included some tiny baby Gnomas for the color dots. Squeal!
Winterkist (by me!)

So with a deep breath I’m about to hit the publish button on this post. I so hope Winterkist will be liked. It’s a weird feeling to put something you made out there to be used. Worry, fear and self-doubt are part of the package - and as scared S-less as I am… I’m also so very happy.  To the moon happy! I can’t thank everyone enough for the sweet, kind and excited comments I got on my teaser post (I’m so touched!!), and I hope everyone still feels the same after seeing the rest, now.  At least I know my parents will want some. Gonna be tough to hang fabric on their fridge… but I’ll find a way.

  144. The fabulous Archie the wonder dog allegedly said:

    I love it!!!! I do hope someone in the UK is going to be selling it!!

  145. The fabulous Deb allegedly said:

    Ooooh I DO hope someone in the UK will stock this. I want it all!! I might not make it into anything, I might just keep it and look at it :))))

  146. The fabulous Lindsey allegedly said:

    I need this fabric. NEED.IT!!!! I love the combination of colors with the prints. Fantastic.

  147. The fabulous Terry allegedly said:

    I can see many, many cute items with this new line - congratulations:)

  148. The fabulous Maiya allegedly said:

    They all look fantastic! I can’t wait to play with them!

  149. The fabulous Mama Spark allegedly said:

    HI Monica,

    I went to the Lecien website and no free pattern = ( Any thoughts or maybe I am not looking in the right place? Thanks!! Love the new line!!!

    I love that you love it, and love that you want the free pattern, too! The free pattern will be out (mid-May ish) after Winterkist debuts at Quilt Market. I know the booklet says it’s available, but the booklet I’m giving sneak peeks of is the booklet that’ll be a handout at Market. I’m sorry if it seems misleading, but I couldn’t wait to show a peek of the booklet. Hope you’ll forgive me! :o) - Monica

  150. The fabulous Pam T. allegedly said:

    Wow, wow, and triple, quadruple wow! I adore them all!

  151. The fabulous Margaret allegedly said:

    I can (or maybe I can’t) imagine how nerve-wracking it must be to have a brand new fabric line out there. I, for one, LOVE it. I would buy it just for the selvages, but the prints are great too!

  152. The fabulous Leslie allegedly said:

    O.M.G. MUST have…..

  153. The fabulous Jen in NY allegedly said:

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! I thought orange was my favorite, but then I saw the graphite all sewed up…squeal! I have been saving some of my Holiday Happy…can’t wait to add to my collection! xo Jen

  154. The fabulous Mar allegedly said:

    I love the quilt pattern!!!!! Where can I get it?

  155. The fabulous Sian allegedly said:

    Wow, I realise I’m totally behind the times with this post, but I love your gnomes! I ordered the lime for a Christmas sack for my son and then discovered the pink for my daughter (if I can get it in the UK!). Also so chuffed to find the actual designer, there’s so many lovely fabrics out there but it’s very rare that the designer is “accessible”!!

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
