Urban Circus - NEW colors sneak peek + 15% off sale

Hello bloggy friends. I'd like to officially introduce you to the two new color stories of Urban Circus . These are new color stories that will be available through Robert Kaufman and I'm so excited to see them start making their way into the world in August!

As I mentioned in my last post, I'm still waiting on actual cuts of the fabric from Robert Kaufman, but here are some early scans I received during the production process. These were quick scans so they're pretty crooked and the colors aren't coming through very clearly but you will get the general idea! I should be receiving real fabric cuts by mid June and will post pics as soon as I get them. Friends meet Urban Circus in Earth (top picture) and in Spring (bottom picture)!

One of the real joys in getting my designs mass produced on big presses is the color saturation that's able to be achieved. Working with Robert Kaufman, they wanted two color stories that were clearly designed for boys AND for girls. So Spring and Earth were born. I know you're not supposed to have favorites, but I guess I will always have a soft spot for the Elephant pattern and I just love the way it turned out in both of these new color stories.

And in related news, there are only 7 days left to order the original color stories Sherbet and Grass from my Etsy store.

Here's a quick reminder of how this final sale will work.

All of the current Urban Circus patterns in both Sherbet and Grass are on sale in the store for 15% off. This FINAL sale will run until Sunday 6/27.

On Monday, 6/28 I will order the fabric from the printer. It should take a few weeks to print so by the 2nd of 3rd week of July I will be able to ship out the very last batch of Urban Circus in Sherbet and Grass. Don't miss out on your last chance to get these fabrics!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

p.s. After much anticipation, the Unfurnished pattern for the Tufted Tweets fabrics that Ashley at Film in the Fridge designed is available for free download on the Robert Kaufman site!! I just love the pattern she created and am so excited to see all of the quilts you guys make! Don't forget to send me pictures! I added a link to the quilt pattern side bar of the blog so look over there :) -->

Love that spring colourway!!! Congrats on the success of's out of stock everywhere. I wonder if we'll ever see it in person up here in Canada. I will have to order it online, I think. I've been desperately stalking any and all TT giveaways to no avail!

I'm so sad that I missed this fabric! I wish I could get the grass... so many friends are having boys, and the grass would make great baby quilts.
