We have Barb Tourtillotte with us today for an encore performance! She wrote for us previously on her Clothworks Fabric spring collection from last year, Hoppy Spring, and now we're thrilled by Rrribbet! Even more saturated with color, Rrribbet is an adorable amphibious delight with cute frogs (yes, frogs), turtles, and dragonflies, doing what they do in the spring...dancing, fishing, playing with toys :) Bright Crayola pink, yellow, blue, and green shades make it that much happier. We've got bundles and yardage, and you can find a free Rrribbet quilt pattern here. Frog lovers, let us hear what you think about Rrribbet!
Hello Jabber Buddies!
Barb Tourtillotte here. Thank you, Fat Quarter Shop, for carrying my Rrribbet line from Clothworks! This collection was developed from one little illustration that I had created for a catalog cover a couple years back, featuring two frogs sitting on flowers, sharing an ice cream soda. At first I thought, "Frogs, really?" But I was so surprised at the huge fan base frogs have! From that lone 'Frog Endearment' image came the collections of frogs...well...doing 'stuff'.
We wanted the collection to be suitable for both kids and adult frog collectors and are so pleased with how it caters to both. From bright frog skin textures and dragonfly tone-on-tones to frogs doing everyday things, I can't wait to see what frog lovers will come up with in the way of quilts and designs using this collection.
Before we know it we will be hearing those "welcome spring" croaks once again!
