The Patriotic Palette

Introducing "The Patriotic Palette" a new fabric line that I designed earlier this year.  The catalog was just launched in August of 2015.  This is the cover!

Hoffman Fabrics did an excellent job introducing my new line. This is so brilliant.  I love the star bunting in the spokes of the wheels, like in a 4th of July parade!

The line on the left (you can click on the picture to see it larger) and some of the projects made with the line

Here I am with text about me. The next page is all about The House Quilt Project, which I think this fabric line is perfect for.  Making patriotic house quilts for wounded service members.  More about this project here.
My sample fabrics arrived right before the 4th of July this year.  It will come out next year, with plenty of time for you to make some of your own patriotic projects.  Swooning over the big stars bunting fabric.
This is the free pattern that will be available on the Hoffman Fabrics website soon.  'Sailing Day' all all of my favorite things about summer.  Sailing, Balboa bars (ice cream bars made famous on Balboa Island), stars and stripes, being out on the water.  18x34. A row by row quilt. Here is a link to their website

I love the 2" squares too, they add so much to the quilt!  Ships to stores early next year!  So excited to finally be able to share this with you!  More to come!
