Folks! It’s finally here! My new collection for Cloud9 Fabrics started shipping to fabric stores all over just a couple of weeks ago. Lotus Pond is made up of 12 prints in quilting cotton, and hooo boy am I ever in love with it. One of the things that makes me so happy to work with Cloud9 is that all of their fabrics are certified organic. All of them!
I am super duper thrilled with how Lotus Pond turned out!! The colors are so vibrant, and the cotton is lovely and soft and smooth. As you know, I’m more of a garment sewist than a quilter, and I’m very happy to report that this quilting cotton serves very well for garments, especially children’s wear. It’s light enough for warm weather tops or dresses, but I think it’ll be sturdy enough to whip up a few shoulder bags or purses.
Stay tuned over the next couple weeks…I have a LOTUS POND EXTRAVAGANZA in the works, so you can see how a bunch of my blogging buddies have been inspired by the frogs and lily pads and snails!!!
