Designer Tidbits: Kris Lammers












The Fat Quarter Shop is excited to welcome Kris Lammers to the Jolly Jabber. Kris’ latest fabric collection is Fresh Fallen Snow from Maywood Studios.





Q: What was the first seed that grew into the Fresh Fallen Snow collection?
A: That magical first snow of the season. Memories of family outings and my rosy-cheeked children building snowmen...catching snowflakes on their tongues...their pure joy!




Q: What are 3 words you would choose to describe this collection?
A:
1. Fresh
2. Crisp
3. Happy



Q: What is your dream project using this collection?
A: So many fun things come to mind, but I think I will be making jammies for myself and my grandbabies.


Kris' Silly Secrets:

1. What is your guilty pleasure food?
Warm sourdough bread with lots of real butter...actually, it doesn’t even have to be warm!

2. Work and life essentials aside, what is the activity you spend the most time doing?
Junking! I love searching thrift shops for items that beg to be used again, or upcycled into something fabulous!

3. Where did you grow up and where do you call home?
I grew up in California...mostly in the Santa Cruz area. I moved to southern Idaho about 1980...and met my husband here...so Idaho became home.

9. What is your favorite fabric print ever (excluding your own)?
I don’t have a specific designer or group in mind, but I love paisley. I think people either love it or hate it. I love it....it reminds me of my grandma.

Love the smiling "snowfolks" and the perky little birds that populate the world of Fresh Fallen Snow. I like paisley designs, too, by the way.

Rachel said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! That's my mommy, and I'm so proud of her and all of her super cute fabrics!

Judy said...

I love her prints they are so fresh and I'm thinking pj's for my grandkids for the holidays would be wonderful in these fabrics too!

I just realized that is why I, too, love paisley - my Grandma. Made me have a warm & fuzzy memory! Thanks!

It doesn't get any better than a collection designed by Kris! Every one of her designs will end up becoming a part of someone's family whether it be in a pair of jammies, a quilt that will be passed down from Mom to daughter or a little one's first blankey ... you just can't let something so wonderful slip through your fingers! Bravo on another heart warming design Kris!

Karen said...

That's my sister!!! :) I love all her collections, sewing with them, petting them... :) She's quite talented!!!

Carol Holmes said...

That's my niece! I love your fabrics, they are so "happy". Paisley is my favorite too, it must be hereditary. :)

Barbara said...

This is my daughter and indeed she is very creative in her ideas and designs. I too am a big fan of snowmen and things wintery. I don't sew anymore but if I did maybe a pair of snowmen jammies would be warm and cozy for mommie. :)

Aunt Bonnie said...

Well, can't let this opportunity go by without adding my very proud comment! Just delightful, Kris. Your prints make me feel happy. AB

Karen said...

Sheesh the whole family is here - did anyone bring food? :) We should all get together and wear our snowman jammies :)

Aggiequilter said...

Oh I'm going to need these fabrics! Snowmen are my thing! We don't see them very often down here in Texas
and paisleys are my very fav prints, I use them in most of my quilts. My girls even say now, "ANOTHER Paisley fabric Mom" ?

Karen Boe said...

Kris has done it again! This is one of my favorite holiday collections ever. So special, so well crafted, fresh yet timeless. Love it! Great interview, too.
