Thanks, Leah!

It's such a pleasure to be writing this post and sharing this with you because i just love when a collaborative effort comes to fruition.
A little over a month ago, Leah at Burgundy Buttons contacted me to let me know that two very talented ladies had created quilt designs using Central Park. She even sent me pictures and both quilts are so creative and fun! They're also very different from one another which is something i'm always amazed to see. I mean it's the same fabric, and yet it's like fingerprints and snowflakes...no two are ever the same.

Leah also let me know that both of these quilts are scheduled to be featured on the Moda Bake Shop and that she would be making kits of each and offerring them for sale on her website! I don't know if you've seen any of the kits she puts together, but she packages them in small bakery boxes that are just so cute they make you want to eat the fabric contained inside (well, you know what i mean).

On top of all this good news, Leah asked me if i'd be interested in designing some custom fabric quilt labels to be included in each kit. Of course i would (and did)!! It was my privilege. I had never done that before but really enjoyed trying to echo the spirit and design of both quilts into a coordinating little label. So you'll get one of these in the kit as well.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank Leah for all her efforts in coordinating this to come together in such a thoughtful way! It was such a pleasure to be a (teenie) part of it.

The first of these two talented designers and their quilts will be featured on the Moda Bake Shop tomorrow. I'll be featuring them here, too, and will give you all sorts of linkies! See you then.

  7. OMG!! I am giddy, excited and dancing all about my craft room over these compliments. However- it is I that plays the teenie roll here! Kate, Melissa and Karrie are all so super talented- all I do is box it up and pray for a packaging inspiration. You gals deserve all the credit! Thanks so much for the opportunity to work with you!
