It’s time for a peek at my new spring collection for Cloud 9 Fabrics, Lotus Pond!!! Woot Woot!! *Kermit arms*
This line will be printed on organic quilting cottons (so not flannels, like my first line, Fanfare), and I’m really geeked about how this turned out. I wanted to do something completely different from Fanfare, since it wasn’t intended to be a kid’s flannel line, so I went in a totally different direction. Flowers, lily pads, snails, butterflies. Inspired by my summers growing up in the midwest. With plenty of color thrown in of course.
When I say “peek,” you can see that this is literally just a peek at the buyer’s boards from Quilt Market a few weeks ago, so the colors need a bit of tweaking yet, and of course they will be on fabric, not cardboard printouts. We don’t have prints on actual fabric yet, but that will come. This is a first stage. Like I said before, designing fabric is an exercise in patience for me. Heh.
Despite the fact that there are tons of flowers and butterflies and such, I also wanted to make sure that a few of the prints would work as “boy” prints as well…so we have some cute snails and frogs that I think would be adorable as a little boy’s shirt, baby pants, or pillowcases. I even think the green diamond print would make the awesomest button-down shirt for a boy!!
Lotus Pond arrives in shops next spring. Do ya like it?
