… a 'Celebration'!


I've always loved the little dots on the selvedge of fabrics . . .

I always thought they were so pretty . . .

But these. . . I'm finding I'm particularly fond of . . .


Because they are a part of this.(!!!) . . .



I am so happy to have my first fabric line, that I am designing with Lecien. . . I just can't put it into words!!! Ever since I discovered Lecien fabrics several years ago - I have been a big fan of theirs. I never, ever dreamed that I would be designing fabrics for them. (Someone. . . pinch me!)

Actually. . . I'm still pinching myself. It's been a bit of a long road. . . my journey of fabric design. But I think that all the previous starts (& then stops) - were all great learning experiences, & I have enjoyed working with the wonderful Lecien team . . . so very much!!!

I received a little over half of my sample fabrics yesterday. . . & will receive the rest (fresh off the press!) in about a week - but I couldn't resist giving you a little peek of my line - called 'Celebration'. . .



'Celebration' will be available this fall (from Lecien. . . of course!), & it will be officially introduced at Fall Quilt Market, & from now until then - you know what I'll be 'playing' with!

So stay tuned! . . . As soon as I have the rest of the fabrics. . . I'll give you more peeks! . . .

. . . & we can have a big 'Celebration'! :o)

xo, Bren

Stitched With Prayer said...

Oh my...this sneak peek of your new collection 'Celebration' has me drooling all over my keyboard. The fabrics look so wonderfully old fashioned to me and THAT is something I love finding in fabrics. There are so many out there that try to have that homey..."this reminds me of my grandma" (or mom if your my age ***sigh***), but most of them just miss the mark. What little I can see of these makes me want to get out my boxes of old pictures and put original Jergen's lotion, or Rose Water lotion, on my hands and just take a stroll down memory lane. I can't wait to see the rest of the line, AND what you make with them. I can tell these will be a "MUST HAVE" for me. Images of beautiful projects are now dancing through my head. Thanks for the peek, and that comfy feeling I got, looking at the fabrics. Also, as someone else pointed out, I can't wait to fondle these lovelys. yup...Hi! I'm Nancy and I'm a fabric fondler!!!

Stitched With Prayer said...

After all that rambling, I forgot to say CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Sandie said...

Congratulations!They are soooo Beautiful! Cant wait to see them in person!

the Material Girls Quilts said...

I love it! Can't wait to get it in the shop! Congratulations!!

Karen said...

I'm so happy for you! And isn't it exciting to see your name on the selvedge! Trim them all off and save them for something special. I have two boxes full of mine, now--just need to figure out what the something special is!

Jennifer said...

Oh my goodness, Brenda!! I am SO excited for you! ...and me, because I can't wait to get some of those lovely fabrics to play with!! They look absolutely gorgeous, and I can't wait to see more of them! Hugs to you!
