How’s your summer going so far? I feel like I need to acknowledge that it’s passing very quickly, but my family and I have been having fun and jumping at pretty much every fun opportunity that comes our way. We even have a real vacation planned to Chincoteague later this summer. Looking forward to some time at the ocean, it’s been too long! I haven’t mentioned it here on the blog yet, but on my Instagram you may have seen that my next fabric collection, Driftless, with Robert Kaufman Fabrics was just released (that means that shops are now seeing it and are able to order). I’m so honored to have been able to work with Robert Kaufman Fabrics once again.
Driftless is a collection of 26 prints overprinted on Essex and Essex Yarn Dye, and Essex Yarn Dye Homespun (yesssss! eeek!) all printed in the USA. I’m so thrilled with how the fabric turned out. Don’t you love a good fat quarter stack like this? Here’s the super important part – it’ll be shipping to stores in December! Yep, I fully know it’s a ways away, but I think it’ll be worth the wait for you! If you’re interested in these fabrics, please share this with your local quilt shop and ask if they’ve ordered. That way they can be sure to get some! I hope this small peek of the collection will provide a little bit of inspiration and get you excited about sewing with it.
Annnnnd, I’m bursting at the seams excited to show you the projects I made using it! Also, I can hardly wait to talk to you about things that inspired me while designing the prints. Here’s a little hint. I’ll be saving the projects to share for when it gets closer to the release date (so maybe sometime starting in November?!) as I know it can be so hard to be inspired to make something yet not have the fabric available. So please hang in there!
Thanks so much for your constant support and encouragement over the years! This is truly a dream come true! I’m so excited for Driftless!
