At the beginning of the year I told you here that 2013 was going to be a fun year for me
and not just because 13 is my favorite number!
Along with new patterns & books and traveling to new & exciting places,
I’ve designed my first fabric collection!
It’s called “Vintage Play” and it is being produced by Red Rooster Fabrics.
(cute little handmade truck was found in an antique store while we were in Astoria, OR this spring after quilt market)
It has taken a year to get where we are with the collection.
The folks at Red Rooster have been great to work with!
My yardage to create samples came a couple of weeks ago.
It’s not every day that I receive packages from Korea.
Pretty exciting happening…
This is where they first landed on my garage floor.
I called my mom and told her she needed to come down. She hopped in her car without even knowing why she should come…better than Christmas morning!
I made the first sample in record time,
These are all the pieces for the top.
My quilter stayed up all night to quilt it so it could be shipped to New York for photography. Tamara, you’re awesome, thanks!!!
The collection has 19 pieces and I used all but one for the quilt.
The free pattern will be available to shops later this month.
I can’t wait for you to see it.
This is where they now reside as I take turns cutting pieces off of each one to make my new pattern samples.
Neat & tidy, just like soldiers.
Wait until I get pressed for time, they won’t look so neat & tidy then…
These are the pieces for sample #2.
The blocks are sewn, and waiting for borders to appear,
but for now they must wait.
School starts Thursday and I have more important things to attend to.
Come Thursday morning when the bus pulls away though,
I’m all about “Vintage Play!”
Until next time,

So cute, Susan!!!! Congratulations!!! Houston will be awesome.
I want the one with squares and people on them…for my collection of course.
Looks like pretty cute fabric. Can’t wait to see it in shops.
Oh wow Susan. You didn’t mention your fabric line! You have come a long way since that first market. Good for you. Where can I buy your fabric?
The reps are beginning to show the fabrics to shops now and it will be available to ship November-December. Let your local shops know to look for it. Wow, first market; that seems like a life-time ago. I still remember being so overwhelmed and meeting you at schoolhouse because you recognized my jacket from my website! Fun times and good memories!
So excited for you! Can’t wait to see and touch.
