Quilt Market 2017: Introducing "Urban Garden"

I am very excited about my second line of fabrics with RJR called
"Urban Garden"
This is a very personal line for me.  I am highly influenced
by my garden(s), both current and those in my past.

My friend and sister guild-member Eileen created 3-dimensional "succulent plants"
using Urban Garden.  These were used in a vertical garden in my booth.

In addition, I made these slightly larger succulent plants as door prizes in my Schoolhouse presentation during Quilt Market.  Aren't they fun?

My friend Joanna made this gorgeous "Coalition" duffle bag,
pattern by Sew Sweetness.

The inside of this bag is lovely and the false bottom can be removed for a different shape.

I am standing in front of Garden Streamers Quilt made by
my friend Debra.  About to begin my "Schoolhouse" presentation.

Amy Barickman of Indygo Junction made these pretty pajamas from two prints of Urban Garden,
as well as a fun skirt and top.

Demi from RJR photographs some of the objects we brought to Schoolhouse.

I'm holding up one of these Crimson & Clover cases 
made by Joanna.  They are so fun inside and out!

On to the show floor and setting up my portion of the RJR booth.
I had fun mounting these half-sphere "bumps" stretched with each print of Urban Garden
and hanging a small "Girls" quilt made by my friend Jamie and all the cute little Beetles made by my friend Deborah!

Here is how the vertical garden looked after it was mounted to the wall and covered with moss.

The corner of my display was bursting with beautiful quilts on the rack and one on the wall.

A small storage vanity gave me a perch for bags, garments, and my business cards.

Urban Garden will be hitting shops in spring 2018.  Be looking for it, and please ask about it at your favorite local quilt shop!  Let's all support our local shops so we will always have them around!
