I am a wife, mom, designer, daughter, sister. On any given day I might be tackling any one of those roles.
Interests: things i enjoy today include exploring little towns with my family, going to flea markets, gardening especially in the spring, taking photos of my kids, painting & sketching, pottery- both making it and buying it [my husband says i have an unnatural love of bowls!], reading sentimental books about life in small towns, putting my daughters hair in ponytails. if you ask me the same question tomorrow, i might have a diffrent list of answers. oh, yeah, i love a good glass of iced tea any time of the day!

Betty- I don’t have the fabric numbers but I used a combination of MODA BELLA Solids, some of the ones I remember the names of for sure are: Clover, Royal, Caribbean, Teal, Butterscotch [yellow] on an Ivory base. I added small prints and solids from various Fig Tree collections: from Somerset: Red Solid, Aqua Woodblock print, Green Dot Trio, Orange Dot Trio, Red Dot Trio, Grey Floral, Aqua Houndstooth from Mirabelle: Coral dot [you could also use Moda Bella Coral here] Honeysweet: Aqua with little circles Hope that helps!

Unfortunately the program is closed as we are out of the needed fabric. We do not do BOMs without the fabric or as PDFs. Thanks so much for following along!

Unfortunately we are all out of fabric for the BOM so I don’t think we will be able to offer it again unless we completely change the fabrics. If we can, we will! Joanna
