Urban Circus in my mailbox

Well, not actually in my mailbox, but Urban Circus via Fedex sounds much less fun...

So...how excited was I today to get my first cuts of Urban Circus?!? Another dork out moment. When I opened the box and spied that pretty little selvage with MY name on it, I just couldn't contain myself. My name? Really?!? I did a brief happy dance that surprised (ok mildly freaked out) the dog and then just sort of stared at them for a bit. It just seems totally surreal some days!

I'm so very happy with the way the colors turned out. Spring is such a sweet, sassy and preppy group. And Earth is just so bright and I think it just looks handsome and happy. I really hope you like them. They'll be in stores in August, so the wait is almost over. In the next few weeks, I'll host a giveaway and share some FQ packs so a few lucky folks will get to be the first to start sewing with them!! So make sure you stay tuned :)







And don't forget that time is running out for you to get Urban Circus in the original colors (Sherbet and Grass). They're all 15% off through Sunday 6/27, so if you haven't placed your order, time is running out!

Is it my imagination (or my computer), but the colors you are showing today look soooo much better than the ones in your previous post! I wasn't sure I liked them before, but I'm loving them now!

Well, you imagine MY thoughts about some of these pictures! I know you don't need another pincushion but I've got some other thoughts tumbling around...

kaiolohiakids: It's not your imagination! Those early scans from RK definitely didn't capture the real colors. These are the real deal. SOOO glad you like them!

Really REALLY looking forward to getting my hands on some of this gorgeous fabric -- okay all of it. I couldn't pick just one. Already have lots of ideas swirling around my brain. Congratulations - I love your fabric.

Sew Fresh Fabrics said...

So amazing! You've done it again. We spoke to Kaufman yesterday and we'll be getting the whole line in as soon as it's ready to ship. We're so excited!

AllieKatMom said...

Cant wait, those look great!

Ciara said...

As for your "dork out" moment, I think you deserve it! Getting your name on fabric that the rest of us will be talking about is a huge deal and even though you've had your name in the salvage before I don't think the excitement should ever wear off.

Poppyprint said...

How exciting!! I must have pink elephants in my life, or at least on my stash shelves. Can't wait. Congratulations Laurie.

Dorrie said...

Stay tuned! More like camp out on your doorstep and stalk you~in a nice way :)! Oh, I cannot wait! There are some cute little toddler quilts in my future with these adorable prints. And some pj's for daughter #3 who I think loves these prints more than I. Such good work Laurie!

Smeeker082 said...

Renate said...

Kate said...

Wow! Love them Laurie. Dance away!

Wendy P said...

Can't wait for August. Must get these!

robie dodson said...

These are AMAZING!!! How do I get my hands on some yardage??? (by the way, I've never met a REAL fabric designer before - I am all goose pimply right now!!!)

Stevens Family said...

I am in love! I can't wait to get my hands on some of these prints. I especially NEED that giraffe print for my ABC I-Spy quilt.
Amazing work - can't wait to get a shot at trying to win a bundle.
