Hello Everyone …
As a designer for Andover Fabrics, I’m working a year in advance to develop exciting new fabrics & quilt patterns.
For over 15 years I’ve been publishing a series of very popular books with quilt patterns, hooked rugs, wool applique, home decorating items, etc. … I’ve called them THREADS … each book with a theme … a season or holiday or simply French. The good news is that in 2011, there will be a new Pumpkin Patch Threads book. The Pumpkin Patch quilt uses a mix of yarn-dyed wovens & prints, many of which are my Itsy Bits “basics” & even prints designed by my friend Jo Morton. The quilt has wool-on-cotton applique pumpkins, acorns & leaves.
You are going to love it! This quilt is a classic! The colors are much more rich & vibrant than these photos show. We’re currently photographing all the great projects for the new book.
Even better news … I have 12 new wovens coming in 2011 — Pumpkin Patch Plaids!
My new Need’l Love wools will also be available in early 2011 … YES 18 NEW and long awaited 100% wool plaids!
It’s going to be an exciting year! As for this fall, Happy Thanksgiving to all.
Renee Nanneman of Need’l Love
