Designer Tidbits: Debbie Beaves + giveaway!












The Fat Quarter Shop is excited to welcome Debbie Beaves to the Jolly Jabber. Debbie’s latest fabric collection is Simple Pleasures from RJR Fabrics.




Q: What was the first seed that grew into the Simple Pleasures collection?
A: I was browsing through a local garden center and a group of African Daisies caught my eye. The cheerful yellow petals with a surprising orange center just clicked something in my brain! Daisies are a simple flower and a pleasure to look at.

Q: What are 3 Words you would choose to describe this collection?
A:
1.Color Range
2.Cheerful
3.Simple



Q: What single print/SKU in the collection is your favorite (can only pick one!)?
A: Progressive Dots is based on a vintage fabric swatch I own. The picotage dots are spaced farther apart as they get progressively become larger allowing the background and dot coloration to interact more. This allows a hombre, gentle light to dark value change in stripe-like rows, to appear.




Q: What is your dream project using this collection?
A: The "Let the Sunshine In!" project. I had to simplify the already single petal style of the daisies. Each appliqué petal is a merging of 2 or more single petals. This gives a natural silhouette of the daisy with fewer appliqué pieces. I grew up in the '70s so the song kept going through my head as I designed it. It was a very happy experience to design and make the quilt. The Sparkling Jewels was a kick to design using the entire color range.






Debbie's Silly Secrets:

1. What music are you listening to right now?
Celtic instrumental

2. Where did you grow up and where do you call home?
I was born and raised in Murray Utah on the outskirts of Salt Lake City. I have lived in the NW, Vancouver Washington since 1991.

3. Do you have any pets and what are their name(s)?
I have two little dogs Teddy Bear (a pomeroodle) and Bella (a long hair Chihuahua). Bear has been confusing for the grandkids. They are learning baby signing and my Bear is a dog and looks like a snuggle teddy bear.

4. Your biggest pet peeve?
My biggest life pet peeve is when people don't accept the differences in the people around them as "normal". My biggest quilting pet peeve is when a new quilter doesn't have access to other quilters to ask questions and learn.

5. What color are you thinking about today?
Deep pink with a violet cast


******



Giveaway time!  Who wants this fat quarter bundle of Simple Pleasures?  For a chance to win comment on this post telling me what your most simple pleasure is in life. 
You have exactly one week from the post date to enter. 
Good luck!

reading a book...or as I have rediscovered, checking out books from the library!

Deborah in Atlanta said...

Playing with my grandchildren. Knowing I don't have any of those "responsibilities" that used to plague me when I was a young mom with young children. Now I'm an old grandma and those grandchildren are my #1 priority when they're here. Everything else just falls to the wayside.

Stitched With Prayer said...

Funny you should ask that question...I just came inside from indulging in my favorite simple pleasure. Every evening, my hubby and I go out and sit in the shade of our flowering plum tree just a few feet from our two hummingbird feeders and just enjoy the evening, and the antics of the little hummers buzzing around us. I sometimes take one of my stitchery quilt blocks out with me to work on, but not always. I usually just enjoy the quiet time, chatting about the day, waving at the neighbors as the drive or walk by (as we yell at the dogs to stop barking at them, LOL) and watch the birds. Thanks for a chance to win this beautiful bundle. All the lovely flowers remind me so much of my mom. She loved daisies so very much that I think of her every time I see a flower that even looks like a daisy. Gorgeous fabric. Hugs...
