Recently the Northcott Fabric Company contacted me about using one of my patterns. POPPY!, to feature one of their new fabric lines, SHIMMER. Of course they need it before Quilt Market in Houston the end of October, so it can hang in their¬† booth there. They plan to market the pattern to stores along with the fabrics for kitting, so hopefully we will both see the benefit.
I already use a lot of Northcott, especially their Stonehenge line which works wonderfully well in my nature themed work. Shimmer has gold added.¬† The fabric has a nice silky hand and is a pleasure to work with.
Whenever you work with a fabric company before market, it’s always rush, rush. The fabric didn’t even come in to them til last week, they cut it and express shipped some to me and I finished the top Monday. Started the quilting yesterday and hope to finish it today.
Better go get busy!!
