hi folks ~

yup.  another pony; a different version of the original, and also created from my newest collage pattern, “sun blossom.”  only this girl was made especially for the lady who owns the quilt shop i teach in, miss toni!  done in some of toni’s favorite colors, orange and purple.  with pops of peach, red, black and white:

oh.  that gorgeous background fabric?  nothing but another original beauty from one of my most favorite dyers everrrr… miss vicki welsh! i snagged up this sweet fabric recently, and i’m so glad i did!

velvet for the ears {naturally!}

bobbin play for the quilting, in a shape that emulates some of the collaged floral motifs in this sweet little pony.

i do love-love all that cool texture!

and a few sparkles on those butterflies… just because.  well.  you know why, right?  because… i can!  you may recall i used this same little glitzy embellishment on the little bags i made last summer?  

more butterfly kisses, for sure!

really excited at how fun this little girl is; and toni loves her!  she’s hanging up at the quilt-a-way for toni and her customers to enjoy.  

and i have two new patterns; a pillow heart collage, a 22″ pillow with an envelope back, newly listed for sale in my etsy shop, and a table runner pattern coming in a day or so.

we just finished up a fourth collage class, and #5 is now set for May 29th and 30th, a friday and saturday at the quilt-a-way.  

AND… yes!  {more collage ideas are popping up}.  and, i’m also so excited to be teaching a two-day collage class for one of my other favorite shops, the bernina sewing palace in helena montana.  this class will be july 29th-30th, a wednesday and thursday.  they have tons of samples of my work, some inspired from laura heine’s patterns, as well as my own patterns, so stop in and say hi if you are there!!

blessings on your day.  i’m off to the print shop!  🙂
