Hi Tanya , You said it so beautifully! Not sappy at all. The Ava Rose is gorgeous , I loved the Barefoot Roses and wondered how you would top that - and you did. I hope to meet you at Quilt Market next month in Portland. And I can't wait to sew Something from Ava Rose. Sue

Tanya Whelan

Thank you so much Sue!!! So scary to put it out there so I so appreciate your kind comment! I'd love to meet you too, I'll be there in a booth in the Free Spirit section next to Anna Maria and Joel Dewberry. Please stop by and say hello if you have time. I'm so excited to see and meet my bloggy friends in person!

Lynda Campbell

Oh my! How I am dying to find this fabric to purchase, any ideas for me? And I can relate to the story. I too have a 7 year old daughter and she is my world and I love the way she sees things!

Tanya, it's just beautiful!!! I'm normally all about the pinks and greens but boy is that blue sooo pretty! Thanks for sharing the inspiration, I have 3 girls and 2 boys and know all about that sweet, sweet love...you captured it beautifully.

Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

I love your Barefoot Roses fabric and I can't wait for the Ava Rose! I think it is wonderful that you named it after your daughter. I also have two boys and a girl and at age 24, my daughter is one of my very best friends. I wish that for you too!

Don't ever be embarrassed or 'grossed out' for loving your children and wanting everyone to know how much you love them more than anything in this world, after that's part of why we're here, to raise God's babes and teach them His ways! Luv, Luv, Luv the Ava Rose line, can't WAIT to see (get) it in real life.

Kimberly

Wow! Just lovely! Can't wait til these are in the stores. I'm really into red right now, so am looking forward to seeing what you've done! I love your designs so summery, fresh and feminine!
