Can you believe that it's only June and we're featuring my newest holiday collection
? Now you'll have no excuses about not having time to get those holiday projects and gifts made! To get you started, you can download three free new patterns
this month that feature fabrics from my new A Jinny Beyer Holiday collection.
Just two weeks or so ago, I was in Kansas City at Spring Quilt Market
I met with the designers who work with me to create the final artwork for my fabric. And if you want to get a sense of how far ahead we work, we were discussing a fabric line that won't be available for another year! Coming "sooner", however, is my Monochrome collection. The kaleidoscope quilt featuring the red fabrics from that collection was on display at the RJR Fabrics Booth (right).
Usually, I see Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson at Market, but I had to settle for the not-quite-the-real-thing this year!
I also shopped for fun tools and gadgets for jinnybeyer.com, and picked up some great new tote bag and purse patterns. You'll see them soon! Do you have my Quilters' Album of Patchwork Patterns book?
Did you know that there are a number of quick reference lists in the book that let you quickly find blocks of a similar theme such as flowers (left), boats, houses, fans and more? You can find an index to the lists on page 19.
