Mezzanine by Patty Young

We are pleased to have the amazing Patty Young writing about her newest collection, Mezzanine, for Michael Miller Fabrics. It’s a bright, fun new collection with strong architectural details and graphic patterns–just as spicy as her previous line Andalucia, with sweet cotton candy tones jazzed up in lime and raspberry. If you’re looking for projects, hot off the press are Patty’s two newest MODKID Boutique sewing patterns, Sydney and Sophie!

Hello, hello!

I am so happy to be hanging out here again in the jolliest place of all!

The past 12 months have been an absolute dream for me, with two fabric lines and a sewing pattern collection… what more could a sewing mama ask for? It’s also meant lots of late, sleepless nights followed by cranky mornings filled with caffeine. But ya gotta do what ya gotta do, right?

Today I’m happy to be jolly jabbering about Mezzanine, my newest fabric line with Michael Miller Fabrics. The artwork for Mezzanine was inspired by a work-related trip I took about 12 years ago to northern Europe. After working for three long months in a small city south of Amsterdam, I decided to take a two-week vacation and travel through the Netherlands, Belgium and France, documenting my travels with black and white photographs of all the amazing architecture I stumbled across.

In Mezzanine, you can see designs inspired by stained glass windows, intricate stone carvings, ironwork gates and even the gorgeous gardens and terraces surrounding these amazing buildings. That trip was something I will never forget and I am so happy I was able to record my memories in a format that we can all enjoy!

And speaking of things we can all enjoy, I’ve recently opened a Flickr group for everyone to share their amazing creations with Mezzanine. So please come on and join the fun! Also, don’t forget to check my blog from time to time . . . I always have fun reveals, sneak-peeks, contests and just wacky things going on! And lastly, if you tweet (and who doesn’t these days?) follow me on Twitter!

Before I finish I’d like to thank Kimberly, Jocelyn, Debbie and the whole Fat Quarter Shop team for your great support. Love you, ladies!
