The Birds & The Bees (and the flowers and the trees)

So I know y’all are just getting settled into Nightshade but this is a fast paced world that we live in. “Keep up or fall behind” is what my mom always told me. In an effort to drive you crazy just a little bit sooner than you had scheduled I bring you my newest collection of fabrics. Please meet The Birds and the Bees! No, this is not a tale of when a boy meets a girl and all of that it just literally has both birds and bees in it. Clever, I know. This is a preview of what is to come.


I really thought that Nightshade was a singular collection using a dustier color palette that was unlike anything I had done before. Now that The Birds and The Bees is in my studio I am finding that is coordinates back in with Nightshade quite nicely. I guess I am not the spontaneous creature that I suspected I was. We all have our crosses to bear. Mine? I am committed to rainbows. I cannot escape the persistent call to use every single color in the crayon box. Luckily, y’all seem to be okay with that so I shall continue.


The Birds and the Bees is not due in Stores until July/August. So keep on the look out for projects that may require squirrels, sparrows, honey bees, lady bugs, meteorite looking polka dots,trees and so on. I always find myself in need of a good lady bug.


The Birds and the Bees will consist of 29 quilting/fashion weight cottons, 6 Laminates and 9 Voiles.
