V and Co: new patterns spring 2012


 i am sooo excited to FINALLY show you my new patterns for my company and for my new fabric line.

this has been a lot of work (ahem hence the silence on the blog) but it is by all means very exciting and i hope you share the same excitement with me.

first we have:


bloom was created with a junior jelly roll just like the one i showed in this post where the ombre fabrics in my line were packaged all together in their own little entity. expect more ideas to come for these little ombre jelly rolls in the months to come.

the stats on bloom are:

finished 60″ x 68″

1 Simply Color Ombre Junior Jelly Roll™

(21-2½” x WOF strips)(10800JRO)

Background & Border: 3½ yards (9900 200 Bella Solid)

Inner Border: 1/3 yard 10800-14)

Binding: 5/8 yard (10806-19)

Backing: 3½ yards

Pellon Wonder Fusible Web #807: 4 yards

comes in pdf, and paper 

next we have:


i absolutely love this pattern. and yes, that cat is our cat, and yes, she totally got in there without me meaning for her to place herself right smack in the middle of the picture. it turned out to be a perfect picture, but what you don’t see is that the cat is staring at my daughter and the dog yelling/barking at her to move out of the picture. i was okay with it…but apparently the other two on the sideline didn’t like that she got to be in the picture and they didnt. 

the stats on hopscotch are:

finished: 81″ x 81″


Stars: 1 one Layer Cake™ (42-10″ x 10″)(10800LC)

Background: 4½ yards (Bella Solid 9900 200)

Binding: ¾ yard (10806-18)

Backing: 4 yards

available in pdf and paper

and then we have my new bag pattern:


 the Chelsea Bag

i didnt’ want to not have any new patterns without some kind of texture! soo check out this little lady.

we are venturing into new kinds of texture on this bag, my version of the honey comb placed on the large outside pocket.

it’s been killing me to not be able to wear it so that it stayed looking it’s best for market, but now that market is over…i’m going to sport her around everywhere, AND look for a linen looking version of her as well. (when i get a few minutes to myself…haha)

the stats on chelsea:

finished dimensions 19½” x 4″ x 12½”
