How’s your summer going? I hope you are all safe and healthy. This year feels so different than past summers for sure. On the positive side, we have enjoyed spending lots of family time without the interruption of having to dash off to activities or soccer games. Days blend together, but I am grateful to have sewing in my life. Today is a great day and one I’ve had marked in my calendar for many months! My next fabric collection, Quarry Trail, 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.
Quarry Trail is a collection of 22 prints overprinted on Essex, Essex Yarn Dyed, and Essex Yarn Dyed Homespun (yesssss! eeek!) all printed in the USA. It’s been interesting to see just a glimpse of how the pandemic has affected the whole process. But I’m so thrilled with how the fabric turned out. Here’s the super important part – it’ll be shipping to stores in December! Yep, it IS a few months off, but I think it’ll be worth the wait! 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 ordered! 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 so excited to show you the projects I made using it! I’m planning on writing about my inspiration while designing the Quarry Trail prints and sharing some fun pictures, too. In the meantime, here’s a little hint. I’ll be posting about the individual projects when it gets a bit closer to the release date (so maybe sometime starting in October?!) 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 support and encouragement! This year especially! I’m so excited for Quarry Trail! I feel so honored when I see my fabric designs being used in your projects.
