When it was first announced that Jen Kingwell had a line of fabric coming out – Gardenvale – I was on the pre-order list. It worked out perfectly since it was scheduled to be delivered in April so I marked it off as a birthday gift to myself! I had a lovely photoshoot with my fat quarter bundle and this was my favorite picture from camera … although I did get a great instagram shot too! Okay, okay … it’s like I’m a proud mama. I really like these shots of my fabric bundle too! I just may have found the perfect new spot to do my fabric photo shoots. I have a few plans for this special bundle. The first of which is another Dresden Neighborhood Mini Quilt. I just loaned my original Dresden Neighborhood to my local Quilt Shop – Mill House Quilts. I’ll be teaching a class on this project there on July 22nd! I can’t wait! And here she is! My next Dresden Neighborhood Mini Quilt! I used four different fabrics from Pat Sloan’s fabric line “The Sweet Life” for the background of the neighborhood. Find out about how just a little bit of Heat n Bond Fusible can turn a traditional quilt into a whimsical quilt over at Thermo-Web’s blog HERE. Have I told you all the big news yet? I’m officially a designer for Therm-o-web! I’m so excited for this opportunity! It is truly a great match as I’ve been using and loving Heat N Bond fusibles since I learned how to raw edge applique! And … the best picture for last. My “Gardenvale Dresden Neighborhood Mini Quilt” hanging on Karmen Lindner Photography’s bike prop with a patchwork seat and my blossoming orchard in the background! Perfection!
