Headed to Market

Flutter by Laura Gunn

This afternoon I head to Quilt Market in Pittsburgh. If you are attending, I hope you will stop by the F+W booth Friday at 11:45. I’ll be there signing copies of Vintage Quilt Revival! For those of you not able to go, I thought I’d post some pretty fabric here for you today. :)

Flutter by Laura Gunn

I received this fabric last week from designer Laura Gunn – her latest line Flutter for Michael Miller Fabrics. Last Winter I bought some of Laura’s bird prints from her Etsy Shop. I used them to decorate my guest room, so she knew I was going to be excited when I saw her new line. I can’t wait to use these to make some coordinating pillows!

I am planning on pairing them with some of Laura’s Painter’s Canvas that I have on hand. Most likely I’ll keep in simple with either log cabins or just squares.

I also wanted to share that I officially have two more patterns available in print.

Patterns by Fresh Lemons Quilts

You can find those in my pattern shop, along with PDF downloads. Any printed patterns purchased this week will ship once I’m back from market on Monday. If you are a shop and would like wholesale information, just email me!

Creativebug : Basic Line Drawing class

Finally, I started Lisa Congdon’s Creativebug class this week. I decided it would be fun to do some drawing with my 7 year old daughter. That’s hers up top with all the colors. She is loving it! I’m not sure she has ever spent so much time on one picture. And I am not someone comfortable with drawing, but Lisa really breaks it down into simple idea and shapes. I highly recommend it!

See you all next week!

    Hi Faith,
    I took the Lisa Congdon’s doodling class too. I’m good at rendering, but wtih my own hand. But it loosened me up, and now I am a bit more comfortable. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    Love your new patterns. Good luck and have fun.

    All The Best,
    Anne

    Hi Faith! I live in Pittsburgh; too bad it’s closed to the public. I would love to meet you. You do wonderful work and although I have never won, your giveaways are so nice and generous. I love that Painters Canvas and my two grandsons that live with me love bugs and birds! I will have to keep an eye out for the fabric. I hope everyone in Pittsburgh is wonderful to you. We are a friendly town.
