So, yesterday I got to formally introduce you to Frippery and I’m still bouncing with excitement. But, it gets better, or at least more-er…
I have another new collection coming out; this one should be showing up around the end of the year. It was inspired by a town in New Jersey called Asbury Park. I spend my early summers one town over. In the early part of the 20th century Asbury Park was a booming beach resort, but by the 1970s it was kind of a wasteland. (Think gritty old Bruce Springsteen songs and you have it; he started out there.) Well, as a kid I used to wander around the old boardwalk and imagine what it might be like if it weren’t utterly desolate (which it was). Asbury is my re-imagining of those daydreams… (I’ll tell more of the story as the time draws nearer.)
So, without further ado, meet Asbury!!!
Again, I am so happy about this collection. I have a bevy of quilts and other projects already planned for it, including what I hope will be my first show quilt (expect craziness). And of course I am excited about the new colors of eggs coming out with Asbury. Hope to develop a huge palate of these over the coming years…
Oh, and you can download jpegs of the entire collection from the Andover site right here if you want to start designing ahead of time. Yay!!!
