I'm so excited to announce...



that I've found just the right fabric! I knew it would come along one of these days...it's got everything I love: fresh, clear colors, polka dots, and vintage roses.

It's called "Red Rose Farm" by P&B Textiles, and it's by, uh, well, ME!



You can't imagine how hard it's been to keep it a secret--I've let out a few hints and I'm pretty sure some of you had figured it out.



The fabric is SO new that what you see is pretty much all that exists right now. They're called "strike offs" and they're just little samples from the mill. But I should be receiving yardage within the next few weeks and stores can get their hands on it soon afterward.

It will have its BIG debut in Houston this fall at International Quilt Market.



It's a 16-piece collection and every piece goes beautifully with every other. I'll be showing you more as soon as more arrives. And believe me--Pam and I are going to be very busy for the next few months creating wonderful projects using Red Rose Farm.

I'm so excited--this has been a dream come true and I'm so glad to get to share it with all of you!
