Patchwork Posse is at it again with this so cool scallop messenger bag using the blue “whisper” colorway of Tokyo Rococo. I love this bag, and I also love how Becky takes her product photos outside. Some are against fences, hanging from clotheslines, or by her sewing cottage–which is where you can find the pattern and instructions for this bag–In the May edition of The Sewing Cottage Magazine!
AND, there is a double whammy coming up with McCall’s. McCall’s Quick Quilts June/July issue, which is on its way to newstands now has a project with Tokyo Rococo–a wonderful quilt named “Persimmon Park”. I like that name! Designed by Sarah Maxwell and Dolores Smith, quilted by Connie Gresham. This quilt is fully patterned in the McCall’s Quick Quilts June/July 2012 issue, AND a kit of fabrics for the quilt top and binding is available from Homestead Hearth, http://www.homesteadhearth.com. A sneak preview is below.
And, stay tuned for a wonderful chevron quilt designed by the amazing Diana Mc Clun and Laura Nownes that will be in McCall’s Quilting’s August Issue, on newstands in May. I actually get to keep that quilt and I am dying to see it in person.
That’s all the Tokyo Rococo news for now. My next fabric collection, Licorice Fizz will be in stores in October. Can’t wait to play with it! But before that there are more projects for Tokyo Rococo coming in….
All fabulous! Congratulations on ‘Licorice Fizz’ (Love that name!)
ooooo and triple oooooerr…love that bag, but the sneak story of a chevron quilt pattern has me chomping at the bit.. can’t WAIT for that. might have to be my next quilt. im so into chevrons at the moment.
Wow! It’s like seeing your fledglings leave the nest and taking to the skies! What a thrill this must be for you to see your imaginings fleshed out into real life projects. It is for me! That scallop bag has me drooling. Love it. I grew up leafing through McCall’s pattern books! Congrats, Carol!
