Ray, a drop of golden sun.

a.female.deer
My friend Edith took this picture of me at market.  Edith is the gorgeous, French mastermind behind Renaissance Ribbons and also behind photos that make me look like a deer.  A female deer.  No wait female deer don't have antlers.  But I do.  In the picture.  Anyway, she snapped me as I was making notes for our Field Study collection of ribbons which should be ready in time for fall market.

Field.Study.Gypsy

As promised, I am sharing a look at Field Study Fabrics by colorway.  I thought the most fun (and already done) way to do that was give you the catalog pages from my Spring brochure.  We get very excited about our brochures around here, kinda like the booth only 9"x9" and easier to manage.  We also send one out with each shop order while they last (still have a few hundred!)  Anyway, the Gypsy colorway is shown above.

Field Study.Patina

And this is the Patina colorway.  This collection of quilting cottons has a few punctuations of pale, almost sun-bleached colorations that I don't always include, but they seemed to work this go-round.  I know these swatches are still a bit small, but they are showing you the relative scale of all the prints to each other which hopefully is helpful.

Field.Study.Moonlit

And above is the Moonlit colorway.  I love this one.  Oh, also, all of the swatches that show an * beside them will also be offered as exactly the same color in laminate for a total of 8 laminates.  The quilting cottons are set to ship to stores August 7th.  Which seems like a million years from now.  But it's more like 6 weeks.  See- much shorter, really.

If you still wanna see everything just a bit bigger and the rest of the catalogue, click here to download and view the full pdf, which also has my written introduction for Field Study.   We've also just created a catalogue page at the website that will let you download and view several past catalogues just for kicks.

Leo, Cash and I would like to say thanks for the warm welcome.  If I posted every adorable picture of those two together, the sheer quantity would push cats right off the internet.  And we don't push cats.

  2. I can't decide what palette I love best. But I know me, and since I will have the whole line, I don't have to choose a favorite. I do love those feathers, and am excited for a pattern release on those. I'm also excited to meet you this weekend in Tampa, and I wish you could bring along Cash and Leo too for a little puppy lovin! You are awesome. :D

  10. That is a beautiful picture of YOU! Love it.

    I am really excited for your newest collection to come out, although I don't want to wish summer away. I love the stories and inspirations behind this collection. And I love the nature and wild theme. A friend of mine was at Quilt Market and got your autograph on your new Field Guide catalog for me. I know, silly girl, but it was quite fun!

  12. I am working on an Innocent Crush quilt for a niece turning 13 (which is a special birthday) and loving your new collection. But I have to say how much in love with the dogs I am. The photos brought me much comfort as I remember Sam, a beautiful chocolate lab we had for 9 years. Such a good friend he was.

  25. Anna!

    LOVE this line! I love the moths. And the migratory lace is also one of my favorite prints, it just really appeals to the former science teacher in me, but they're all great. And the feather quilt block is brilliant. Fantastic job, once again!!

  28. Once she was on my back,ergo baby carrier it felt GREAT! We took a long walk all over the neighborhood and I had absolutely ergo baby carrier uk zero shoulder and back pain like I usually get. I am now a true believer in this carrier and will be using it exclusively as ergo baby Everly grows. (The Ergo Baby also offers an infant insert for tee tiny babes available separately)
