I can't believe how many days have passed since my last post; in some way I am so glad because I could taste, crumble and enjoy each and every comment you made about Sandy Toes and Quilted Daydreams Quilt. THANK YOU!
If you ask me how many posts I would like to write I would say many more!! The work here at my studio is so frantic that posts could be written one everyday to say the least. But you don't want me here writing all day long, do you? I couldn't be doing all the work I have ahead of me, like designing fabrics, quilts, writing new patterns, planning my new showroom for next Quilt Market, and blah, blah, blah... believe me, it never ends... Sweet! :)
There are some posts that I should have shared with you some time ago, but because "time is a tyrant"... So here it goes.
As I promised in this post, it's time for me to officially introduce to you one of my newest collections!
I'm proud to present BAZAAR STYLE.
Think exotic florals and sumptuous medallions in lavish purples, gold and deep teal; perfect for elegant quilts and home decor items, or even a tunic with an eastern feel!
I must confess this has got to be one of my most favorite collections; when I designed it I felt transported to an exotic destination, swept away by the mysterious flair of the Moroccan streets and architecture.
So you may be thinking "Oh, it all sounds great, but how could I bring Moroccan flair into my everyday life?" Don't worry, here we've been making quite a few things that may have you running to your sewing machine. Beware: there are many pictures to enjoy!
Here's a maxi-dress we made using Mosaic in Cream. You can make a waistband in contrasting fabric (in this case we made two bands: one using Lace Elements in Plum and the other one using Gems in Terra), that will not only accentuate the waistline but also dress it up a bit more for a family event... or a date ;)
The perfect dress to kiss the winter goodbye, right?
And now some other fashion suggestions you may wanna incorporate to your closet!
Think simple pieces (like this dress), because the fabric speaks...
These maxi-skirts are so easy to sew and wear. Make them in warm or cool colors to expand your wardrobe possibilities!
I also made this handbag that has a very relaxed feeling to it and it's SUPER easy to make:
The handles are adjustable, you just tie a knot and you're good to go!
Love the pillows for the chair we made as part of a special shooting to show on my website very soon...
Check out all the prints here. They are hitting stores right now!

To start your sewing marathon, you can download a FREE quilt pattern I made for you: Sanctuary. You can see some of it on the third and fourth pictures above. Have fun!!
I hope you love this collection as much as I do. What other ideas can you think of to add some Moroccan flavor to your life? Waiting to read all the ideas you share with me...
