… in the studio


Yesterday morning there was a lot going on in the studio . . .

After working with the wonderful linens from the new Moda 'Rouenneries' line. . . I opened up & ironed my 'Rouenneries' print bundle & then cut the border for the table cover / tablecloth that I've been having so much fun with.




Before I knew it. . . it was all sewn together & ready for my quilter! So we took a trip to go see Nubin (my quilter) & decided on the quilt design for this table cover. I'm so excited about it. It's been tons of fun to make & I love the idea of taking quilting to more places in the home. This will be for a table cover that can also be used for picnics too! (I'm also hoping to make it in some light, vintage-y fabrics . . . for another great look.


Here's a little peek! . . .




But for now. . . here's some of the next little bundle of wonderfulness that awaits me. . .



This is just some of the simply wonderful fabrics from Camille & Bonnie's 'Simple Abundance' - their upcoming line for Moda. This was another one of those lines - that as soon as I saw it - I knew I needed to get some! I have had an idea in my sketchbook that I have wanted to make for a few years now. . . but never found the right fabrics for it.

I do believe these (along with the bundle & 'jelly - cake' I bought at Sample Spree!) will do . . .



Perfectly!!!

So, you know where I'll (happily) be!!!

xo, Bren

I was just wondering what color number of floss you're using with the French General...and if you're using DMC or Cosmo. Thanks!

Of course you had to tease with 2 of the lines I'm dying to arrive this fall! Thanks so much for the sneak peeks, it's getting harder and harder to wait to see them in person!

I love your studio - it's so cheery! Can I ask what your cutting mat is? It looks interesting...

Lucky you to have access to those lines early. You will have to let me know the name of the patterns you've created. I'd love to carry it for my shop. I've orderd both lines! ;~) I was thrilled to see that you used the glace line for a pattern. I have that in my shop too! I just love your work! Playing catchup - sitting in my favourite coffee shop! Cheers!
