Pat & Kimberly at Spring Quilt Market

Q: What was the first seed that grew into the Simple Stitches collection?
A: I used several of my appliqué quilts to inspire this line bringing my folk style flowers and colors into the mix! As it started to develop the idea for a panel and the border stripe came up show the floral and garden shapes I like to work with. Since it's based on my appliqué, Simple Stitches seemed a perfect name!

Q: What are 3 words you would choose to describe this collection?
1. Warm and Comfy. (oh that's 2 words.. wink!)
2. Home
3. Garden

Q: What single print/SKU in the collection is your favorite (can only pick one!)?
A: My favorite in the line is the stitching lines(533), thus the name "Simple Stitches". It's a great textured print and love that I was able to fit it in!

Q: What is your dream project using this collection?
A: I knew I'd make my Posie Wreath in this fabric. I'm dreaming of making a whig rose next and using the border print on it.
