You know what? It’s fun to make something that doesn’t have a deadline. Something just for fun. I am making a quilty town of all of my favorite shops, with quirky names too.
I think that the garden store will actually be called ‘grow up.’ I pre fuse all of my fabric wth Mistyfuse, a fusible web that doesn’t change the hand of the cloth. Easy to sew through by machine and hand sewing!
These are made from my blender line Hopscotch by RJR Fabrics with 11 hand drawn designs and 84 colors. This a line that will be made over and over again, so in other words they are not going to stop making it. Frocks needs some frocks on the upstairs portion and maybe need to switch out that yellow awning, so that the windows stand out more.
I asked by Facebook peeps for ideas on crazy names. Relics for the antique store. Lettering and quilt motifs cut on a Sizzix machine. I have arthritis in my hands, so this machine saves me.
My little town is growing. And more to add. Need an art store, bakery, and perhaps a quirky bar?
And happy to tell you that this group of gorgeous color is being added to Hopscotch! Two new hand drawn designs - Cathedral Windows and Flower Power in four new colors each. 2 previous designs Square Dance and Deconstructed Dandelions each with two new colors that complete these collections! I am super thrilled to finally see them in actual fabric. It ships to stores in October! Introducing Hopscotch too!
