Bell Bottoms is a hip new line at the Fat Quarter Shop designed by Jennifer Paganelli of Sis Boom for FreeSpirit. The colors are fun and bright and the prints are bold and retro. To us, it is all about summer, and we can't wait to see the projects it will inspire you to do! Learn more about Jennifer and the backstory of her collection, and don't forget to show us what you do with it!

About Sis Boom
Jennifer has a charmed memory of her childhood in the sparkling blue Caribbean, a successful background in commercial textile sales in New York City, and a love for all things beautiful, vintage and playful. Her twin brother nicknamed her "Sis Boom" as a child, and when it came time for Jennifer to turn fancy and ability into a business, Sis Boom was created- a baublelicious collection of home and personal accessories. Sis Boom is regularly featured in Country Living Magazine, Ladies Home Journal, Woman's Day and numerous other publications. Jennifer has been a featured guest on television decorating shows, has conducted workshops -
Most recently for ABC Carpet & Home in NYC, and her vintage-ornament Christmas wreaths have graced the window of the American Folk Art Museum in NYC. She has also contributed to special events, style shoots, weddings and parties with custom-designed Sis Boom products. Jennifer resides in Connecticut with her husband and two children.

What About Bell Bottoms?
Bell Bottoms was inspired by my youth in the Caribbean and the palette is saturated in color. You know there was a time I thought I would be the next "shabby chic" cause I love the muted tones so much and the time worn vintage quality but that's not what comes out of me when I sit down to design. These are the colors I was intended to use, these are the colors that speak to my soul. Color infused graphics together or used on their own give a new dimension to our notion of what's modern. So start creating and show us how they inspire you I can hardly wait to see....
