Q: What was the first seed that grew into the Coming Home collection?
A:Living in rural Ohio, we are surrounded by wonderful barns, old and new, and the recent tradition of Barn Quilts. I wanted to incorporate these beautiful tributes to the love of quilting, and the feeling of “coming home” to this fabric group.
Q: What are 3 words you would choose to describe this collection?
Q: What single print/SKU in the collection is your favorite (can only pick one!)?
A:My favorite print within this group would have to be the panel! It brings back so many heartwarming memories of weekends at my grandparents’ farm each time I look at it.
Q:What is your dream project using this collection?
A:I would love to see a quilt that incorporates all 6 blocks from the panel. Barb Cherniwchan from Coach House Designs has actually captured this in her quilt pattern “Country Road.” I love it!
