Hi friends! We are so excited to present to you our upcoming fabric from Sheri McCulley called Garden Party! Garden Party is the sweetest collection of designs with watering cans, gardening hat and tools, strawberries, birdhouses, a trellis of flowers and multiple colorways of flowers. The color palette has soft pinks, pale blues, creamy yellows, a touch of orange and raspberry with a few navy blues. The scale is small and easy to work with for quilting, home décor and clothing. If you were to ever have a secret garden these are the designs that would speak to you.
This month we will be showcasing projects from our makers using Garden Party fabric and we can’t wait to see what they have been working on. We also want to spotlight Sheri McCulley and the beautiful design and sewing work she does, we started by asking what got her into design.
Sheri said: “As a child, I always knew I wanted to be an artist. After my kids were in school, I launched my career as a licensed artist, creating illustrations and pattern designs that end up on products like calendars, cards, posters, embroidery patterns, decorative items and fabric! That’s when I started designing fabric collections for quilting companies. I’ve always loved to take an idea and develop it into an entire collection—that’s why I love fabric design. What I also love about working with a fabric company like Poppy Cotton is that I don’t even know what my designs will ultimately end up on; someone may use my fabric to sew a quilt, a purse, a piece of clothing or a soft doll.”
We just love Sheri’s designs and how she uses them to create art, fabric, dolls and stationery. You can view Sheri’s Prairie Lasses doll and clothing patterns on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/
