Quite literally on Cloud9

GreyAbbey
It’s been a long time coming, and I’m so happy to finally announce my fabric line with Cloud9 Fabrics!! Do you know how hard it’s been to hold these cards close to my chest and keep it on the down low? VERY. But the collection debuted at Quilt Market this past weekend, and so I can make it official. Big yay!

I’ve been dreaming of having a fabric line, and have admired Cloud9 Fabrics for a long time. I had my heart set on working with them, they sat at the top of my list of ‘dream clients’ and so when we signed on to work together I was over the moon! Like my face hurt from smiling so much. Their fabrics feature artists like Lisa Congdon, Eloise Renouf, Heather Moore of Skinny Laminx, Rae Hoestra, the very talented Creative Director of Cloud9 herself, Michelle Engel Bencsko… and so many more! So I’m totally stoked to be included in such an incredible group of artists.

For now, here’s the little emblem for the collection which is called Grey Abbey, and is named after a small town in Ireland, close to where my mum grew up. Ireland holds a very special place in my heart, and many of my patterns are based on the antiques that my grandmother has in her beautiful home there. So I thought the title quite fitting. The collection features a really nice mix of tossed and structured florals with some vintage flare, in two colour ways, and I can’t wait to show you… soon! The collection will be hitting the market in early 2014 — stay tuned for more updates!

As always, thank you all for the support, it’s so very appreciated!
