Oh Tanya!!! Each line is better than the last and I don't know how you do it. I was just telling a commenter on my blog how much I would love to find a cotton gingham in some really fun colors and then I look here and what do I see?! Perfect!


I enjoy reading your blog. I’ve bookmarked you in my favorites. I am writing to invite you to join in the fun at the blog my sister-in-law and I keep…The Chocolistas.

We, The Chocolistas, are holding a Name That Chocolate Dessert Contest…August 4 - 16….with prizes! We’d love for you to participate.

Come and join the fun!


i just bought a fat quarter set of Ava Rose and will now start saving up for the new line--you have such beautiful fabrics--thanks!!!


Very Nice!
Hope you are well Tanya!


Oh my gosh, Tanya. This collection is wonderful! I can't wait to get some. I've been trying make some decorating decisions for my bedroom and I think your new collection just might do it!


I just bought some of the Ava Rose line. I walked into the shop and actually squealed and flapped my hands when I saw that they had it! I have to wait for them to get the blues in from Free Spirit. Now the new lines are just as gorgeous! What's a girl to do? Expand her stash, I think!

beautiful yummy fabrics, Tanya! You never fail to amaze....and inspire!
And congrats on your upcoming move. So very exciting for you all!


You are spoiling us with such beautiful fabrics. I have just had my Ava Rose delivered. I had better get going and make some of it up ready for your next gorgeous collection!


Happy, happy fabrics!! Just got a bundle of fat quarters in Ava Rose from The Fat Quarter Shop that I can't wait to use!

Tanya- WoW! It was me who called your style 'happy girl' and I am so thrilled that you found inspiration in that! The collection is beautiful- It makes me want to make a ruffley apron and head-kerchief to wear on that red -convertible ride to a lemonade and apple-pie picnic :)

My Ava Rose has almost completely sold out, I have more on order. PLEASE tell me when can I order your Happy Girl?? They are gorgeous, and well, so happy!!! I talked to Free Spirit, and they had no idea when it would be available to order. agghhh!!!!!! thanks Tanya!

Hi Tanya, I have to tell you that I adore your fabrics - your sneak peak of the next line is very exciting as well! Brussels is beautiful, by the way - I hope you like chocolate! When are you going? If it is before xmas, look out for the wonderful German xmas markets. You'll only be a stones throw from Venice, Paris, Prague (you have to visit Prague, it's practically compulsory.) If you get sick of mainland Europe, hop on a ferry and you'd be welcome to come visit us in the UK - we're about 20 minutes from the port at Hull. Best of luck!


I want it all!! I can just imagine how inspired and creative you will be when you move to Brussels...can't wait to see whats to come! You are amazingly talented and looking at your stuff is just awe-inspiring and makes me want to sew. Thanks for the inspiration!!


Those fabrics are swoon worthy. And I can see why with such lovely inspiration.


Love, love, love your fabrics! I just added to my stash. I posted a picture of them on my blog. I purchased these at Pennington Quilt Works when I was visiting my sister in NJ. She has a stash of your fabrics too! Keep them coming!



Love it! Love it! Love it! Just added some more to my stash.



don't you jus tlove that bright green and hot pink colorway! Really has a kicky, funky 1930's feel!


Oh wow. These prints are just delicious! I can't wait for them to hit the quilt stores!


Anyone Can Quilt

Your fabric designs are so beautiful. I NEED them! I'm thinking quilts, curtains, a duvet cover....this could never end. I can't wait to get my hands on some of this! x


Beautiful...gets my mind going over many ideas with all those colours!

Jennifer Paganellli

amazing......totally what it means to you those are such great notions...blessings on me


Beautiful--can't wait! I would still love to interview you if you ever have a free moment!


You have such a beautiful line here. I love it! Nice to get a glimpse of where some of the inspiration comes from.

Have a great weekend!


These fabrics are absolutely lovely!
