wow, these fabrics look just lovely! Maybe even better than the last collection, but I don't know yet. Maybe just as pretty. I love the look of the bags and aprons lined up on the hooks. Such pretty colors and design!


Well that fabric is making me stupidly happy too! I can't wait to get my hands on it!!!


Can't wait to see those fabrics in person! They look absolutely beautiful. I'm still loving Ava Rose...was knee deep in them this last week!


I'm already thinking of all the charming things I want to make with your new line. Thanks for the inspiring pictures of Ava!


I know what you mean about being so busy. Sept. and Oct. are always the worst for me, then I look forward to November, but then it's crazy again in December! I love the new fabrics, but I still haven't finished all my projects w/ Ava Rose:) Can't wait to see your photos in Country Home.

I just saw the new pictures on Flickr. I love the Darla fabrics! They have an almost retro kitsch look. I can't wait for them to come to my quilt shop!


GOod to hear from you, Tanya! That fabric is so happy, can't wait to see more of it ;-)


Its great to see you back. Those fabrics look amazing - I look forward to them being released!

Can't wait to get my hands on some of that Darla fabric!



I experience the same fabric giddiness must be an incurable disease that so many of us silently suffer from! LOL

Darla is just beautiful and I can't wait for it to hit the stores!

How fun to work with Matthew Mead! He's one of my 'heros; in the designing world, and I'd love to meet him someday.

Oh gosh, I love your designs, and I can't wait to decide on a print for my under-the-kitchen-counter curtains. I'm still loving the Aqua Kitchen Rose, and I just received my apron that my mom made with it! The fabric is even more gorgeous in person! (I haven't posted it yet, but I will, once we get some sunshine.)

Take care!

Oh I cannot wait to get your new fabric. I am really excited this time because you have yellow in the mix. I love Yellow!!


How exiting it is to think about your new collections in the works!!! I adore all of these new projects!


My word, I want every single piece from this collection. I haven't been this excited about a fabric line in a long time. I can't wait for it to be available!!
Glad you are back :)

So. Darn. Beautiful. Makes me long for just a little more summer.


I'm just going to start buying your fabrics by the bolt. It'll save time trying to decide which ones to pick and choose. I love Darla and can't wait for it. I'm finishing up with my mega Ava Rose purchases, quilts, clothing etc., and everything is so beautiful. I'll be posting my creations soon! I'm glad you're back amongst the bloggers!

I get that way over fabric too...especially your fabric! So many exciting things happening for you--congratulations and you certainly deserve it. Ava Rose looks like you doesnt she?

I have a little giveaway featuring one of your fabrics on my blog right now.



Lovely pics!! Ava is so cute, especially with those pink Converses, and definitely takes after you :) And yay for mature'll KNOW when the right project comes along!


What pattern did you use for the apron?


Cripes! PLEASE tell me that this is going to be available for Christmas because I absolutely MUST include the ruby gingham and the blue floral in my christmas projects.
