Wild Child

This has been an unusual month for me and my family. I have only been home about a total of 24 hours. Between a teaching visit to Kansas City and attending Spring Market in Portland I have been on parental duty after my Dad’s knee replacement at the beginning of May. I know many of you share similar responsibilities so perhaps you might forgive this lengthy absence from blogging.
But today I finally have wifi access so I’m sharing some fabulous news! I had two wonderful premieres at Spring Market last week. The introduction of my new FreeSpirit fabric collection coincided with my first line of ribbons for Renaissance Ribbons. Both are based on the new Wild Child designs, which are folk art inspired with a hint of “flower power”.

Renaissance Ribbon

Designing for Renaissance Ribbon is a dream come true! This classy company represents some of the best designers in the industry, many are fellow Westminster colleagues…. Kaffe Fassett, Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner and others. There are five Wild Child designs in several colorways, eleven ribbons altogether. They are wonderfully crafted, finely woven and delightfully detailed. Included is the cutest little reversible ribbons with my signature bugs and moths. We will be featuring them all on the Ideas Blog, so keep in touch.

The Wild Child fabrics have already been whipped up into many quilts and wearables which we will share as soon as good photos have been taken. In the mean time, here is a sneak peek of my section of the Westminster booth last week.

More photos, projects and details to come soon. Both ribbon and fabric will be available in your favorite stores this July.

    I love it! So bright and happy and colour rich! I love how the black deepens the intensity of the colours.
