Flower Child is HERE!

I'm so happy to see Flower Child arriving to shops! Before I share how excited I am about this new collection I have to ask, did you happen to see that Art Gallery Fabrics revealed my next collection, Autumn Vibes on their social media pages this past Friday? If you happened to miss it, you can find it here -- Autumn Vibes Reveal on Instagram

AGF and I would both love to know what you think, so feel free to leave a comment for them on Instagram! I'll be sharing more about Autumn Vibes soon. I've already started sewing samples with my strike offs for Quilt Market next month!

I'm always a ball of nerves around a fabric collection reveal - the days just before and after are such a mix of emotions, anticipation and excitement! This time I was a bit distracted from my usual nervousness because simultaneously my brand new Flower Child collection has been arriving to shops!

When asked to describe this new collection I wrote, "Hidden amongst Mother Earth’s beauty lives the Flower Child. A colorful world filled with lush meadows, wild bouquets & the spirit of the flower child painted with fuchsia, blush pink & teal." This is perhaps my most colorful collection to date! I've fallen in love with sewing with it, it just makes me smile and happy and my BIG hope is that you'll feel that, too!

In Flower Child 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 and one beautiful Rayon!

With each new fabric collection, comes a free quilt pattern designed to pair perfectly with the quilting cottons that I have designed. This time I'm thrilled to share my first collaboration with Sharon McConnell of Color Girl Quilts! Sharon is the queen of sewing curves and even has her very own Classic Curves Ruler that she offers to help others make curved piecing quilts quickly without templates. What could be more fitting for these Flower Child fabrics than to make a quilt made of flowers! I'm completely in love with the Flower Crowns quilt pattern that Sharon designed and I hope you'll want to make one!!

Be sure to check with your favorite online and brick & mortar fabric retailers and ask for Flower Child! I'm currently compiling a list of retailers that you can find on "My Art Gallery Fabrics" page (see above) with direct links to each shop who's carrying Flower Child. I'll be sharing many more images, project inspiration, giveaways and Flower Child sewing here and on my social media accounts in the weeks ahead. Be sure to follow along to see what I'm stitching up, and please remember to share your own Flower Child makes with the collection hashtag #FlowerChildFabrics!

I can't wait to show you the LookBook a little later this month/early next month and I REALLY can't wait to see all of what you'll create with this new collection!!

Have a great Monday! xo Maureen

  2. Flower Child is gorgeous. I especially like the Sisterhood and the hand. I can see a beautiful zipper pouch done with Sisterhood in my future.
