big news part 2: folk life

Today I would like to introduce you to my favorite of the two collections..."folk life".

Why is it my favorite? The concept and rough sketches came to me when I was at Kis Alma back in March. A weekend spent in the Hungarian countryside living the folk life.

This was a fun collection to design and it came so quickly and naturally. Maybe because I also spent time thinking of my grandparents who live in the country. Grandpa the gardener and grandma the cook. Living the country life, the folk life.

Enjoy.
Warm breeze. Sun on my face. Fresh laundry hanging on the line. Flowers in bloom. Bees buzzing. The call of distance birds. Resting on a gingham blanket. Eating fresh strawberries and sipping sweet tea. The country calls and I crave the folk life.

colorway: sweet dreams
colorway: summer sunset
colorway: country picnic
A few details: The fabric will launch this Friday at the International Quilt Market. Buyers will be attending, placing orders for their fabric stores and online shops. If all goes well, I will be posting where you can buy these fabrics in the next few weeks. I will keep you posted!

Love the collection. Love it all! These designs reminds me of the times that I sewed for my mother. Made quite a few of her house dresses.
