giveaway!

Thought that would get your attention.

I’m so excited to be able to work with Josephine Kimberling’s Just Dandy (Robert Kaufman) for one of my upcoming patterns. It’s beautiful! I mean, I love it in the pictures online, but seeing it and working with it in person is another thing entirely. It’s simply intoxicating. The prints play so nicely together, and there’s just enough unpredictability in the colors to make it really, truly unique. (That yellow? Swoon.)

So, to celebrate spring (yay!) and to reward you lovely people for being patient with my lack of attention around here, a fat quarter bundle, just for you.

I’m not above bribery.

To put your name in for this little pretty, leave a comment telling me what your favorite color (or colors!) are to create with. If you want more than one entry? Follow me on Twitter, like on facebook, subscribe to the newsletter, or the feed, tweet about it, blog about it. Technically, my friends, you could get in to win this thing 7 times. Oh, and if you’ll leave a separate comment for each entry (and link me to your post/tweet if you did those), that will help me make sure you get counted the right number of times. If you’re already following/friending/liking/subscribing/whatever, just tell me that in the comment. Totally still counts!

Winner will be chosen Friday, May 6th.

In other news, I’ll be listing some of my extra precut fabrics in the shop in the next day or two. Gotta do some spring cleaning in my studio. Seriously. The place is overflowing. Besides, I’m fairly sure you guys can always find a place for Bliss, Fandango, City Weekend, Simple Abundance…just to name a few. A couple of these lines haven’t been easy to find of late. You could get lucky! Keep your eyes peeled.

Next week? New patterns! I can hardly wait to show you the amazing work Natalia did on the quilting. Honestly? That girl is a machine quilting goddess.

Mwa! (And get those entries in!)

so. so. ready.

Not sure what is going on around here.

It’s cold.

And decidedly not spring-like.

If someone sees temperatures over 55 degrees, could you send them my way?

Pretty please?

Thanks.

(How’s spring coming along in your neck of the woods?)



some other day

Remember the old rhyme?

Rain, rain, go away, come again some other day.

I think this past week or two have been a whole lot of those “some other day”s all stacked up.
I mean, here in Utah, we don’t usually see moss on our trees. Snow on blossoms? Sure. Rain? Not as often.

Nevertheless.

It’s kind of nice to see so much green springing up before the heat of the desert summer takes over. There are a few other things springing up, too. Little miss Lily was more than delighted when she found a “beautiful flower” for me outside. I have to say, she was so sweet that I was pretty delighted about it too.



Sneak Peeks & Pattern Updates

Let’s talk patterns.

I’m up to my neck in writing the new ones, and I’m so excited to share them with you in just a few more weeks. I’ve had fun this time around taking your suggestions into consideration, and I have a list a mile long of even more requests I couldn’t get to this go-round. It’s really fun to have so many projects to choose from–and more reasons to buy fabric!

In other news, I’ve finally got my Pattern Update page posted. There are yardage updates for He Zigs She Zags and Scrap Basket {remix}, so if you have purchased either of those patterns, you’ll want to check it out. Also, if you’re a shop owner, there are printable inserts you can slip into the back cover of the patterns you already have in your shop.  That should make things easier.

Speaking of carrying Prairie Grass Patterns in your shop, if you already do, would you comment and let me know? (And thanks for carrying them, too!) I’m compiling page with a list of places to buy them, and I’d love to include you.

You guys are the best–thanks for all the kind words and support as I work through my first-timer-ness.

xoxo

April

P.S. Next stop? Busting out the colored pencils. Stay tuned.
