What do you do when one of your favorite fabric designers emails and asks if she can send you an oh-so-fun stack of fabric to play with?!! Do a little happy dance! A couple weeks ago Laurie Wisbrun emailed me and asked if I would create something fun with her new fabric line due out in June 2012. I was so excited. I love Laurie's style and the fun, unique designs she creates. Brrr is no different.
I fell in love with Laurie's fabric way back when I first started quilting. I saw her work in this quilt created by Ashley over at Film in the Fridge. I've been following Laurie's blog ever since. I honestly remember thinking when I saw that quilt how cool it would be to be asked by a designer to create something with their fabric. I was so flattered when Laurie asked.
When I was redoing my blue chair, which this blog is named for, I used Laurie's Tufted Tweets to recover the seat.
So, I was thrilled when a nice heavy box from Robert Kaufman was delivered to my door Friday afternoon.
Brrr is a winter line that will ship next year sometime in June. I love it! I love the colors, the polar bears, the flowers and those fabulous doily-like snowflakes.
This little guy is sitting on my shelf as well. Stick around! In a month or two we'll do a giveaway to see who gets to give this fun fat quarter stack a new home!
