Sneak peek | Next Stop London

Who's ready for a sneak peek of Next Stop London?! I designed these two patterns about a year ago after a super fun trip to Greece and London. It was my first time to visit London and I had such a wonderful time. I'd love to get back and visit again soon.

It was such a thrill when the team at Robert Kaufman decided to pick up the London-themed designs that I created after my return. Its a small collection of 2 designs each in two bright and cheery colors which I hope you will love. I have so many projects planned for it! Top of the list is a picnic quilt that will remind me of my afternoon sitting next to the Thames River and enjoying the sunshine (and perhaps there was an adult beverage or two involved!) And with the Olympics looming, who knows what fun projects might spring to mind. Any suggestions?

Next Stop London will start shipping this coming April and I'll have some FQs to giveaway as we get closer to the ship date. Can't wait to hear what you think!



And look at the super cute cars on the selvage!! Beep beep!!

Oh you have to come to the Fat Quarterly Retreat in June - oh go on you know you want to!
Those fabrics will be so awesome for that on the Jubilee weekend and the Olympics.

Love the double decker buses. London was an experience and I went during their hottest July ever. I definitely remembered to mind the gap. What a fun line.

Oh my goodness! Every time I think you can't create anything more amazing than the last, you TOTALLY do!! I love this!
We lived outside of London for 3 years, and I have so many memories and so many special people who would need something made from this line.
I can't wait!
