Verna, Verna, Verna! Everyone went Verna-crazy at Market last October, and rightfully so! I don't think I've ever met a happier Spring line (no, not Spring yet? Wishful thinking? Fiiiiine...) But it'll at least be Spring when we're surrounded in the Shop with Veeeerna! We've got all the cuts, yardage, and plenty of great kits for this collection! Here's another funny memory -- designer Kate Spain was pretty much re-named "Verna" after Market -- lots of people asking who that new Verna was LOL. After this line -- and her next, 12 Days of Christmas due out in April -- Kate's name will definitely be cemented in Quilter Land. Be sure and stop by her blog if you haven't already -- she's been churning out really super stuff!
Flash back. It was about a year ago that I completed the designs for Verna. I don't even think I had a name for the collection yet. The colors were much darker and completely different, and the first set of printouts were probably on their way to Cheryl at Moda (or on her desk awaiting review). I had no idea what would come of it. During that year, I've been to my first International Quilt Market in Houston, I've created some pretty cool crafty Verna beauties, and I'm already working on my third line for Moda!
