… the gang's all here!



Lookie. . . !

. . . come into the studio . . & see what's here!


. . . that's right! The rest of my 'Celebration' fabrics arrived! (. . . que the sound of pitter-pattering of my feet doing a happy dance!)

Lecien was having the mill do a reprint of the stripes & gingham print that I have in the line. . . They wanted to be sure it was just right, & I have to say. . . the wait was worth it! They (Lecien) are so wonderful. . . as I love all they have done to make this line (my first one!) all I dreamed it would be.

It has six colorways. . . a creamy white, yellow, pink, lt. green, a soft aqua blue, & a soft red.


Here's the creamy white, pink, & greens. . .


. . . & here's the yellow, soft aqua, & reds. . .


. . . & this one. . . I know it may sound a little, well. . . weird, . . . although I love them all, this is the piece that made my heart skip a beat. It's a simple cream & white gingham - but I've wanted to have such a fabric for such a long time - & now it's in my line! It's perfect for backgrounds & for applique & for stitchery. . . I'm planning to get bolts & bolts of it!


Here's a little better peek at the prints . . .



I have to admit - that once they were all together on my cutting table . . . once I had the actual yardage of what had been only in bit's & pieces & in my heart & head. . . I got pretty teary-eyed. I think it's really true. . . that the best things are worth waiting for.

So you know where I'll be! I have a little project to finish for a magazine. . . & then. . .

. . . I'm diving in!

(p.s. Thanks to everyone in my first 'peek post' - for all the 'fabric love.' . . & to all - I promise that this will be the last 'Celebration' gushing post. . . (but I just couldn't help myself. . . now that they're all here!))

xo, Bren

Be still my heart. To be surrounded by such beautiful fabric ... sigh! :o)

Peanut Blossom said...

Why would it be your last gushing post? Gush on, gush on. . . as long as you include sneak peeks! Love the colors, that yellow and soft red are just so lovely.

Sandie said...

Congratulations Brenda!
I swear you must have been eavesdropping on my wishful thinking, because if I ever get the chance to design a line of fabric, you've already designed it, so I couldn't! I can't imagine anything prettier! Unfortunately, none of the LQS's carry anything from Lecien so I will be drooling over pics of everyone elses creations. Once again, Congratulations, and they are gorgeous!

Cathy said...

You are allowed to gush; it is all so beautiful! I especially like the aqua and red together and think I could use a bolt of that gingham too.

Darlene said...

OMG, be still my heart! Brenda, they are drop dead gorgeous. I'll be happy to stop by to pick up all your scraps - just say the word. :-)

paulette said...

Yahoo Bren! Congratulations on the first of many lines of fabric! They are beautiful and you are right... the cream & white gingham is one to scoop up on:)

Sinta Renee said...

Dawn said...

I don't blame you for gushing!
Simply gaw-geous, daaah-ling!
Every. Single. One.
Now you have me drooling.

Dawn said...

One more thing.
I hope you don't mind my putting your website on my sidebar. I want others to find you!

Jacquelynne said...

OOOOOhh- happy dance here, too!
I know what you mean about the creamy gingham- I am always on the lookout for neutrals that are "just right"- they are harder to find than you would think- can't wait to get my hands on your gingham!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I give you complete permission to gush about your first fabric line AS MANY TIMES as you want!! How many people get to do that??? You deserve it! It's beautiful fabric by the way!!

PamKittyMorning said...

OH Brenda.. even better than I remembered. And the reds, and oh the pale yellow. YUM!!! xo

mahladybug said...

Bren, Gush as much as you want and I will read it everytime. Remember Carrie and I took a peak at it up close and it is so me. Cream and white gingham...what a dream come true.

Auntie Pami said...

Oh my, my. I see why you get teary eyed. They are so dreamy. I can hardly wait to see something all done up and stitched out. Beee-uuu-tee-fulll! (Does that make sense?) Ooh, and those threads....

Gracie said...

Oh my gosh! They just sing to my heart they are so darn gorgeous. You did good! Can't wait to see them in person.

Thimbleanna said...

Congratulations Anne -- they're all just beautiful!

Vicky said...

Well, gush away, sweetie! You deserve it! The fabrics are just luscious! I predict tons of it will be living at my house! Better warn Kimberly to stock up! xo

Sherri said...

Yes, definitely keep gushing...your fabrics are absolutely stunning...and I agree...the cream gingham...it will be a necessity along with all the others!

pdudgeon said...

oh you've really hit a homerun with this line! it has everything i like; the large overall prints, the medium prints, the small ditsies,the stripes (love the tone-on-tone!)the ticking stripes that i love for quilt backings, and the ginghams. Tell Lecien to make lots and lots of bolts of this line. I think it will be a mainstay for a long time to come.

anne bebbington said...

Actually I love all the ginghams in those piles - so subtle and not too sugary - a very useful addition to a stash

Brenda said...

I say gush as much as you want. They're to die for and I can't wait to get some for myself.

Debra @ Life is a Stitch said...

BEEooootiful!

Cara said...

Oh my goodness! Please, gush away! This line is GORGEOUS!!!! I can't wait to be able to get some!
Congratulations and enjoy it!

suz said...

Oh gush away girl! You deserve it - these fabrics are yummy! I love Lecien fabric - it has a beautiful hand.

Mary's Cottage Quilts said...

Congrats, you have worked so hard for this - you have total gushing rights on this one honey!!! It's simply beautiful!
See you soon!!

Lori Holt said...

Oh Brenda...they all are absolutely gorgeous!!! I agree about the perfect creamy white gingham background...I must say the yellows are stunning.
Congratulations...a great job and worth the wait for sure.
