I have a lot to share in photos, but wanted to post this one just for Mark Lipinski. Mark, I hope your little wonderful computer program, hears your name....Mark Lipinski :) It was actually suggested from a customer to share this and I said you are so right---Mark would love to see this!
Alexander Henry makes some awsome cowboy fabric called Wranglers, we at the shop lovingly call it "Hunky Men"fabric.
Well, of course it's been a shop source of humor and jokes....and within 4 weeks the entire bolt has been sold. The first lady to purchase from the bolt got 3 yards to make a body pillow case for her 17 year old daughter...what a cool mom! Well, our youngest sales gal (aka my coworker) is highly talented and creative and fell in love with these hunky men and designed a pattern using the fabric -- with the intend for a kit, unfortunately we have to wait til mid-April to get another bolt, hopefully.
Her quilt is finished and she is working up the pattern for sale, but here's the finish project:
Sharon (aka co-worker extrodinaire), took one of her own cowboy boots and created a feathery design (from the stitching on the boots) to be use as the quilting design in the log cabins area and then drew a boot to be quilted in each of the corners. The flying geese quilt design she created as well. Did I mention how talented this gal is!? Not to mention she is the princess of color in our shop (there is already a queen bee of color). She has name the "hunky man" in the center of her quilt - Josh.
Again, we should have a pattern for this quilt ready to sell by end of this week under $10. This pattern is actually good for any panel style fabric - asians, floral, kids, etc.
So Mark Lipinski, this post is just for you (and any other folk out there that love that hunky man fabric, but kinda clueless what to do with it).
