We have already been selling this pattern like crazy in our shop! But now that Lori has loaned us her quilt for display they are hopping out on their own practically. I really think this is my very favorite of all of her designs. I am particularly in love with the tiny details such as the embroidery on the aprons on that are hanging on the clothesline. All of these tiny details are what makes a quilt for me! I think it is why I am so obsessed with the Japanese quilts, they are full of these tiny additions. It takes some extra time, but it is totally worth it! If you would like us to send you this pattern, the link to order is below.
I have been waiting with baited breath, hoping that we would gat some of the last of this fabric. YES!~ We received some with our shipments today. These fabrics are from the Amy Butler Lotus collection, which they have just recently stopped the re-prints on. I ordered some a while back and crossed my fingers. And as if it were kismet, we received some more of her patterns on the same day and Voila! I found the Lotus Tunic Pattern in the bunch and it is all of the exact fabrics! Looks like I will have to make myself one.
These are some of the samples for a new class we are going to be doing at the shop. They are origami with fabric. There are so many uses for them that my head is spinning. We are working on an applique quilt that will have flowers that are 3-d made from some of these patterns. I am working on a Dahlia flower for the quilt and if I can get it together I will do a demo on the blog for it when I am finished.
