Pear Tree

Morning all. After traveling for 30 hours to get home (18 of those hours were delays) I finally made it back from the most amazing Quilt Market in SLC. I could never have imagined it would have been so wonderful, on every front. I will be talking about that all week, including my pics for the Quilt Market Scavenger Hunt that the super-awesome Katy and I are hosting, but more on all of that tomorrow. Today I want to get straight to a promise I made before I left…

Andover previewed my first line (on paper) at Market, and I promised I would show it to all of you in the blogosphere right after Market (if given the okay). Well, the okay was given, so it is time to share. I am so excited; I have been wanting to do this for months. Without further ado, Pear Tree:


I don’t want to twist your arms or anything, but I hope you love it!

So, now to spend today catching up with life at home, and trying to get a bit of sewing in. Tomorrow I’ll start the process of sharing my Market (or as much as I can, #teehee) with all of you. It was amazing, and I can’t thank everyone there enough for their kindness, their generosity, and all the love. I miss you all already, and can’t wait until Houston!!!

Though, I gotta say, I am glad to be back here with WW and Bee, and actually have the time to catch up with my online family. I missed you all while at Market. Couldn’t have made it there without your kindness, support, and advice.


Edit: Know what I forget to do? Talk about the inspiration. Won’t go into elaborate detail here, but this is what happens when I watch a few Partridge Family clips on YouTube. I think my mind works in mysterious ways. Come on get happy!!!

    Can’t wait for it to be in stores. How large is the focus print? (Can you share that?) I love the sweet pea colorway.

    Unrelated: Carl occasionally sends me links to photos of quilts that he finds through searches b/c eventually I need to make one for our bed and asked what he likes. The other day he sent me your blue one from the MQG challenge (not knowing anything about you, just random web search, I think)! (which I also like love)

    Love, love, love Azure. Finally getting some heat here and it reminds me of the Mediterranean. Your package is finally on the way, wanted to wait until after Market. Hope you love it!

    Thanks for all the love everybody. Sorry to be so slow in responding; things are utter chaos around here at the moment. Feels like I have 127 things to wrap up by Wednesday, but the Pear Tree love means a lot. #Hugs

    I’m a new follower (not in a creepy- stalking kind of way)! I can’t stop looking at your designs. I very much look forward to buying some and making it into beautiful things! Congrats on your new found love.

    I’m so glad I found you! I’m also new with Andover, I suspect a little bit newer than you as no strikeoffs yet. I’d love to chat sometime!

      Thank you so much. Pear Tree will be available in some LQS (I suggest asking your local shop to order it) or at many online fabric shops. It is expected to ship sometime in late October… Yay!!! And again, thank you so much!!! #Hugs
