Introducing: Garden Dreamer!

Wold & Free + Fleet & Flourish + Nightfall

For the very first time I cut & stacked a half yard of each print from the rolls of fabrics I've designed for Art Gallery Fabrics| Wild & Free + Fleet & Flourish + Nightfall ♡  In just a matter of days my next collection should be arriving at my door, and I can't wait to add a bundle of Garden Dreamer to the stack!

Introducing: Garden Dreamer

Did you happen to see that this latest collection of mine was announced? Well now that all the bits and pieces have spilled in video form HERE and in fabric swatch form THERE during Quilt Market this past weekend, I thought I should formally introduce you all to Garden Dreamer today! Since it all happened while I was focused on my Nightfall Parade series, I thought I'd wait for that to conclude before sharing my excitement!

When asked to describe this new collection I wrote, "Garden Dreamer is a collection centered on botanical themes and garden memories. Featuring large romantic flowers and dreamy dainty blooms splashed with luminous color including sky blue, coral pinks, goldenrod, dusty jade, teal greens, and peachy cream. Each print reflects the child-like wonder of the garden, picking sweet bouquets and daydreaming amongst a verdant field of flowers."

I think this is perhaps my prettiest collection yet. The colorways are both a reflection of the morning sunrise and the fading light of day, bright and pastel, golden and cloudy, shiny and dusky. Most of all it's the mood of this collection that I love, it just makes me smile and happy and my BIG hope is that you'll feel that, too!

In Garden Dreamer Quilting Cottons there are the standard twenty prints divided in two pretty colorways. This time I'm excited to have five new Garden Dreamer Knits, one Cotton Voile, and one Canvas!

Of course you all know I'll be posting lots of projects and inspiration for you just as soon as my advanced yardage arrives. I hope you're just as excited as I am to welcome Garden Dreamer into your sewing! If you could, I'd love for you to pick your favorite fabric from the collection and leave the name of it in a comment for me. I'm so excited to see what you all think of this new collection!!

Have a great day!

xoxo, Maureen
