Ok, people. I told you I'd be posting my new patterns for all to see, and they are finally ALMOST ready. So I thought I would put up a few pictures here. But first of all, an important announcement:
I NEED HELP! HELP WANTED: I need a new office manager for Jillily Studio. My daughter Sarah is moving and I will be left alone, with all this work to do! So if you live nearby, (Herriman, UTAH) and are interested in having a fun little part-time job with very flexible hours, email me!! I need someone about 12 - 15 hours a week to do the shipping, filing, and kit cutting. Quilting experience is needed. Please pass this along to anyone you think might be interested.
My email is:
Now that is over, I have to show you the new stuff!
First of all, I did a really fun, free-wheeling quilt titled WEEKENDER.
This is a bright happy quilt made from my new fabric collection, Park Drive. (The fabric should be in stores, and on my website in August. I can't wait for it to arrive!)
I just love the way Maika quilted this one--don't you? It is modern and crisp, yet traditional, too.
The next quilt pattern I am introducing is called CHERRY LANE. It also uses the Park Drive collection of fabrics. When I get the fabric, I plan to start making a few more designs. These quilts were made using the strike-off fabric samples, so they look good, but don't drape so well. Ha Ha.
Cherry Lane is a square, so it makes a nice table topper. I just love the toile print in this collection. I can think of TONS of ways to use it. Can you?
The next quilt has become a favorite of mine. I love the simple, classic color scheme and design.
ARGYLE AVENUE boasts some ric rac embellishment that just makes this quilt!
I love how the ric rac turns into a scrolly vine in the border. Lots of fun to do, and easy, too!
The black and green diamonds are so scrappy that it adds sparkle. I am planning to offer kits of all three new designs on my website. I'll put them up just as soon as I get fabric.
I need comments. Which one is your favorite? What would you do with a toile print? What have you been doing this summer? Would you like to come work for Jillily Studio????
