Roughing It by Laurie Wisbrun for Robert Kaufman

I just love designer Laurie Wisbrun’s fabrics. I remember drooling over her Etsy shop a few years ago, and then being so excited when she announced she was going to be designing fabric for Robert Kaufman, starting with Tufted Tweets. When she asked me if I wanted to play around with her upcoming line Roughing It, I immediately jumped on the opportunity!

This adorable line is all about the outdoors – trees, campers (LOVE!), woodpeckers, tents, and a great stash-building dot print. I’ve decided to work with the fabric in 2 sets.

And have pulled some fabric from my stash. I can’t wait to cut into it!

Roughing It will be available this December, but keep an eye out on my blog next month. I just may be giving away a Fat Quarter Set!

    I just love the little tents and picnic tables – it reminds me of family camping trips at the state park when I was a kid! Can’t wait for this fabric to come out!

    Oh my, how gorgeous are these. Laurie can’t do no wrong in my eyes. I am still holding on to the tufted tweets and can’t cut into them. Will have to open a fabric museum one day as all the best lines stay untouched. Not sure if that’s a good thing or not. (?)

    Those trailers are too perfect! I love the tent print too, and I’ll be stashing some of that blue dot. Great line!
