Briar Rose Art Prints, Now Available, and a Wallpaper Sneak Peek!

I frequently get requests for artwork that can be hung in a boy's room, and I have been promising to do just that for a while. When I was working on the Frog Pond print for Briar Rose I knew I had the chance to offer something, finally, that would allow me to follow through on that promise. This cute little signed print set (each print is 7" by 7") is printed on thick archival paper and ready to be framed. I used a painted IKEA frame here, but recently discovered this amazing site, where I'll be ordering from now on....

Now Available over at my Online Shop.....

Oh, and here it is against some a wallpaper sample from my upcoming Wallpaper Collection for Spoonflower! More on that later.....

Briar Rose (in quilting cotton and in jersey) has arrived! Plus, a free sewing pattern....

I am so pleased to announce that my new fabric line, Briar Rose is now available in quilt shops everywhere. The collection includes twenty prints on a nice quilting weight cotton, four of which also appear on a buttery jersey.

The jersey is perfect for little leggings like the ones below, so we've made this original pattern available as a free download. The pattern includes some tips on sewing with jersey on a basic, mechanical sewing machine, for those who don't have a lot of experience with this fabric. We are looking forward to hearing what you think, and seeing what you make.

We'll have another pattern available for you next week, a cute little blouse that's just perfect for the Briar Rose quilting cottons. If you'd like to know about it as soon as it arrives, consider signing up for our newsletter!
