Q: Tell us a little about the Pam Kitty Picnic collection. What were you inspired by?
A: The funniest thing happened when we had our first planning meeting for what turned into Pam Kitty Picnic. We both had brought a collection of things for inspiration and reference. Each of us had a children's book about kittens and puppies! Since we both love the same kinds of things, it's easy for us to work together.
Q: How did you choose the prints in the Pam Kitty Picnic Designer Select Bundle?
A: I had so much fun selecting prints for the Designer Select Bundle! I knew I had to include some of my favorite things, like cherries and of course the cats and dogs! Holly and I have a print that we call Favorite Mini Floral and I included two colors, red and white. Of course no bundle is complete without some gingham, plaid and polka dots! Then I filled in with a little bit of every color so the Designer Select Bundle is a well rounded collection of Pam Kitty Goodness.
Q: What trends are you currently exploring?
A: COLOR! I love color! One of the happiest things about Pam Kitty Picnic, and all the Pam Kitty lines, is the wonderful rich color! In each collection we add new colors and I'm excited that with the addition of our new dots, we've gone into the pastel colors with ‘butter’, 'baby' and 'mint'.

A: I think Pam Kitty Picnic is perfect for the Quilty Fun Sew Along. I also hope to see people making my Tic Tac Tulip Quilt, which is a free pattern available on my blog. My favorite quilt that Holly designed for Pam Kitty Picnic is Lunch Boxes and I would love to see a lot of lunch box quilts out there. It's so nostalgic and it takes me right back to the days of carrying my lunch to school. Holly has a lot of great patterns using Pam Kitty Picnic, you can find them here.
Q: What is the best part about having a fabric line?
A: I love seeing projects made out of Pam Kitty fabric. People sew with love in their hearts and being a part of that is wonderful. Of course it's a lot of hard work as well, and I'm constantly challenged to learn new things. Probably the hardest part is working with someone as serious as Holly! But to really get serious, I really couldn't be luckier or happier. I hope that's reflected in our happy collection Pam Kitty Picnic!
