Hope everyone is having a Happy New year! (So far) How are your New Year's resolutions coming?
I made it the first day...kept all my resolutions for that one day.
Day two, again, kept the resolutions.
Day three: all @%#* broke loose. I won't elaborate because it involves graphic details that I dare not expose on a public site. Let's just say I am going to get back on the horse today...later.
Why oh why is it so hard to keep those resolutions?? Sometimes I wonder if there are unseen forces at play here...I could explain but it would sound weird.
ON to the topic of the day: BOHEMIAN FESTIVAL!
"What is that??" you might ask.
It is not a week long glorified party thrown by gypsies that you are all invited to...rather it is the name of my summer 2012 collection due to arrive on quilt shop shelves in June to be exact.
Today I am showing you a little glimpse of it from the strike-offs I was given to look over, to check for any changes I want to make in color, etc. These are little samples of the prints that are done up by the factory early on in the process, for the purpose of proofing before the final yardage gets printed.
Luckily...and this is very rare, there were only one or two little changes I needed to make. Such as: "Darken this yellow, lighten up this pink".
I am loving how this collection is coming together! It is going to be so much fun to sew with for spring...I am already envisioning all kinds of delightful designs coming together with these prints and colors.
Something new (for me)...all of these fabrics can be mixed and matched to create a ton of luscious combinations for your sewing pleasure!! Rather than having three separate colorways with only a few cross-over colors, these can all work together beautifully.
We at Lila Tueller Designs also have a few new patterns in the making, so watch for those coming on the scene soon!
Hoping all of you have a wonderful, satisfying, fabulous 2012!!
Happy new Year everyone!
