Striking A Pose

The colorful photos and whimsical illustrations from Sewing Clothes Kids Love by Nancy J.S. Langdon and Sabine Pollehn inspired me to make this dress using fabric from my Cold Spring Dreams collection. I love this book because the authors encourage the reader to create unique garments through embellishment. 

I used the lavender and yellow palette from Cold Spring Dreams to make the Feliz Party Dress. I think you can see from the photos that Grace loves her new dress! We shot these photos on a brisk fall day, which might explain why her poses were non-stop and filled with action.

Fall Market 2012

Last week I was in Houston at the International Quilt Market. It was a pleasure meeting with the RJR Fabrics group and the booth looked great. I was thrilled that one side of the booth featured my Cold Spring Dreams fabric collection, which will be available for delivery in January. Items that were on display at the booth will be available as kits through RJR Fabrics and local quilt stores.

This gorgeous quilt features Cold Spring Dreams’ lavender and yellow colorway. The pattern is Honeycomb and was designed by Kati Spencer of From The Blue Chair.

Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts designs such fun and refreshing quilts. This pattern is Chopsticks and is made up in Cold Spring Dreams’ pink and blue color palette. The pattern is available at

The Anne Bag designed by Clover and Violet is so pretty and there is a matching clutch named Bella! Jennie and Clara also created really cute baby clothing with Cold Spring Dreams so check out those items and the patterns available at
