Beautiful Soft Repose Quilt featured on Etsy

I occasionally come upon some really beautiful quilts that feature my fabrics. I am always in awe... such talent in the quilting community and I consider them among my most enthusiastic fans! 

So, here's a beauty that caught my eye! Featured over on the MagnoliaQuilts Etsy shop... a gorgeous handmade quilt that utilizes quilting fabric from Soft Repose, my first collection with Freespirit fabrics/ Coats. This collection lends itself to more contemporary quilt concepts and this one showcases that to spectacular effect! 

Check it out in the MagnoliaQuilts Etsy store... only one left;) 

Shell Rummel Soft Repose quilting fabric

Do you sew?

In preparation for Quilt Market this coming October, I have been fortunate enough to work with some amazing quilters & sewers who have been creating the most beautiful projects out of my fabric collections. These projects are an integral part of our Quilt Market booth display and really help the Market attendees envision all the ways our fabrics can be used. We aim to inspire! 

When it comes to choosing a sewer to work with, I'm looking for a partner who is not only skillful at sewing, embroidery and stitching, but who also is interested in creating projects that will enhance my brand's softly sophisticated and natural design aesthetic. We are always on the lookout for sewers who are energized by the idea of working with us to create projects that evoke a more organic, modern vibe.  

We happen to have enough fabric left from both Bloom Beautiful, my newest collection which launches at Fall Quilt Market, and Quiet Moments, the collection we launched last Spring, to be able to offer up more of it to a handful of additional sewers. However, the turnaround time is tight! I will need completed projects back in hand by the second week in October.  If the idea of this appeals to you, if you have mad skills and if you can work on deadline, reach out and pitch me a project idea:) If I like it, I'll get back to you quickly and we'll have a chat to see if it feels like we're a good fit to partner up!  If I don't choose you, please don't feel discouraged! I will be happy to add you to our list of sewers...we pull from it often for various projects.  You can contact me via my website or over on my Instagram or facebook pages.
