New Work: Jamie Fingal’s New Fabric Line

October 14, 2014

Here is a Sneak Peek at
Heart & Soul SistersLyric_kinard_mug_rugs1

A new line of fabric for Hoffman by Jamie Fingal that will be coming soon to a fabric store near you. Or at least that’s the hope.Lyric_kinard_mug_rugs2

Jamie will be working a booth at Quilt Market showing off her latest line of fabric and demonstrating her design process. You really do have to pop over to her blog  to see some of the wonderful things she is doing with her fabric. Quilts, paper doll play time, and especially the SHOES!!!!Lyric_kinard_coffee_cup_cuffs6

Representatives from quilt shops come by and love it and order bolts and bolts and bolts for you to buy! Tell your shop that you really want them to carry Jamie Fingal’s new line!Lyric_kinard_mug_rugs4

I volunteered to make some quick and easy little projects from the samples to display in her booth. A set of fun little mug rugs and a couple of coffee cup cuffs.Lyric_kinard_mug_rugs5

And of course because it is Jamie, the rebel quilter, who’s work very often has zippers in odd places I chose to pull a few colorful zips out of the shoebox that has been taking up space in my studio for ages. Perfect use for them! (Thanks to Sue Bleiweiss for the idea!)Lyric_kinard_mug_rugs3

Now can I just share something for a minute? Let me tell you how quilting is good for my family. It’s good for my soul. I have a teenager. A very intelligent teenager that hates to do things that are hard – like major school projects. Said teenager hasn’t quite figured out that ignoring hard stuff doesn’t make it go away and we had, shall we say, a difficult time last night. Even though I was running very, very short on sleep I had to stay up late shepherding this recalcitrant teenager through an overdue assignment. If I didn’t have a project to work on while repeating the mantra “do the work, do the work, do the work” every two minutes I think one or the other of us might. not. have. survived. the. night…

yes my friends.

Quilting saves lives!

    I can remember those days, too…. my daughter was a procrastinator, and still is!
    you might need one of those shirts that says “I quilt so I don’t kill people”…. 😉

    I absolutely love the projects that you created with the fabrics! They are so fun and colorful, with your own artistic style! Love the zippers, which are near and dear to my heart! Thank you so much for helping me out with my booth decor. A cuff for my Starbucks, and a rug to put it on! So great!

    You make me smile. You had me at the first photo. Reminded me of an experience while we were en-route to our procrastinator’s college graduation. Via Starbucks WiFi. We lived.

    Well said. Brought a smile to my face remembering parenting and now grandparenting.
