I'm in love!

Over the weekend, Mom and I had the opportunity to sneak away to the Sew, Quilt, Needlework, and Craft Expo in Sacramento.

I always love visiting Robin and the ladies in the Bird Brain Designs.  They'res so nice and personable, and their embroidery designs are just the best!  I used their Redwork Snowmen pattern for Mom's Christmas quilt a few years ago ...

... but embroidery time these days is just non-existent!  I've long had my eye on their Quilts in the Garden pattern.  It's such a beautiful, feminine work, and I keep imagining it set as the centerpiece in a beautiful red and cream quilt!

So, imagine my surprise when I walked into their booth and saw that they have a new fabric line out based on this print!  And let me tell you, the photos don't do the line justice.  The colors are gorgeous!  Two of the prints feature the Quilts in the Garden motif, and yes!  The large print is large enough to embroider or embellish!

Stitched Garden - Red

Stitched Garden - Stripe

The other coordinating prints are just as lovely!  While the fabric line comes in blue and black colorways as well, I think this shade of "Turkey Red" is my all time favorite color!

We're lucky enough to have a few fat quarter bundles in our shop!  Each kit contains 14 fat quarters (18" x 22"), plus a 1-yard cut of the Stitched Garden print.  It's so pretty ... I just want to hoard it all!!
