Good morning! How was your week? I was super busy, I came home from the retreat and then next thing you know it's Friday! I know I still owe you some retreat photos but I had a couple of days where I couldn't download photos for some reason and then well, the week got away from me. If you head to instagram you can see a little bit of the weekend while you wait, plus some pictures of the latest quilt I'm test piecing for Holly.
Anyway, the exciting thing yesterday was getting over to the studio and checking out the strikeoffs for Fog City Kitty! I am so pleased with how they turned out. It's been a real treat to have that bonus collection and exciting to have some fresh fabric earlier in the year.
I'm quite pleased with all the wonderful colors. This is an extension of Pam Kitty Garden in a "fog" gray colorway, something a lot of shops asked for. We also had a lot of requests for the cherries so we popped some of those in too! Of course in true Pam Kitty style, all the new Pam Kitty mixes right in with the old Pam Kitty.
Not to jump the gun, but how cute are these Sunrise Studio mini strawberries with these prints? SUPER CUTE TO ME! I hope to you too.
Once we have strike offs you know that yardage isn't far behind. Of course it has to travel from the mill and then get rolled on bolts and then get shipped to the distributor and then to the stores, so patience is the name of the game right now. And I'm still pretty darn happy sewing on my Pam Kitty Garden fabrics.
Ooops another picture. Sorry, I hope you can indulge me today! I can't help it, I love it so much. Of course you know that Holly is the woman behind the curtain Wizard of Oz style. She's the one who makes it really great!
Here's more of the Sunrise Studio.. new scallops in new sizes. They'll be perfect for your more petite scallop needs! Bags! Blocks! Holly has some great projects coming in McCalls Quilting and McCalls Quick Quilts. I can't wait till I can share those with you. Remember to head over to Instagram and you'll see a bit of a sneak peek of those test blocks.
Seriously, strawberries good enough to eat!
All in all it looks pretty darn good I'd say! I was so completely thrilled to see them all laid out with the Sunrise Studio prints looking so cheerful. It makes me want to sew sew sew!
So that's that! I hope you guys have a great weekend! I can't believe it's Friday! Better get my coffee and get busy!!! xo
P. S. Be sure and ask your favorite quilt shop to order Fog City Kitty and Sunrise Studio!!! That would be super awesome!
