winged by bonnie christine (11)

today is a happy day. my new fabric collection winged for art gallery fabrics is arriving today in stores everywhere! for this post, i want to share with you more about the collection and my inspirations behind it. tomorrow i’ll be sharing with you the newly released lookbook and several projects made with the collection. fun FUN fun fun fun!

forever and ever i have always noticed the very first butterfly each spring. it has been one of the sweetest sightings for me each year. it means a new season is upon us, warmer weather is on it’s way and fresh blooms will be emerging from the ground. it also evokes this feeling within me of inspiration- like all things are possible. the butterfly’s journey from caterpillar to butterfly is one that i’ll never stop marveling at.

this feeling of spreading one’s great wings and soaring is one that connects with me deeply. a long time ago i decided that i would pursue my dreams no matter what. i would make great sacrifices, journey into the unknown put my heart and soul on the line to live my creative dream.

that is what winged is about. spreading your wings and flying into the unknown.

wingspan melon | flyaway petalums vert

mimicry beryl | bird’s peck jade

design note: mimicry was created via a happy accident. by enlarging up all the bits and pieces that make up the butterfly’s wings, mimicry was born. it turned out to be one of my favorite prints!

aves chatter shine | plumage apricot

design note: while i was sitting at my desk one day a flock of birds landed in a nearby tree. i grabbed my camera, ran outside and started taking pictures up in the sky. i’m sure i looked like a barefoot lunatic! this is how aves chatter was created. each bird represents an actual bird i saw behind my camera.

nesting blooms cool | frilly flutters creme

metamorphosis quartz | feathered flight acorn

design notes: metamorphosis is my take on the beautiful butterfly cocoon. hanging from a branch these layers will soon fade away and a butterfly’s wings will unwrap and start to fly!

wingspan fig | flyaway petalums sky

design note: i was nervous to include this dark plum color on wingspan. however, i have deeply fallen in love with the figgy color! that’s just to say that taking risks sometimes pays off.

mimicry hazel | bird’s peck dahlia

nesting blooms warm | frilly flutters mist

design note: these nesting blooms were inspired by a real flower i photographed while living in california. i love how the nest together- as though they were drifting down a lazy river.

announcing winged!

May 6, 2014

winged fabric collection by bonnie christine

it’s here it’s here! i’m thrilled to announce my brand new fabric collection with art gallery fabrics called winged. i’ve been so anxious to share it with you!

ever since i was a young girl, i’ve always delighted in seeing the first butterfly of each spring season. it’s such a special moment to me. it represents new life, change, a new season, warmth, possibilities. winged was inspired by this first spring sighting and the delights of waking up to the birds chirping outside my window. it represents a season’s fresh beginnings and the dawn of a new day.

i also believe that if we have enough courage to spread our wings, we can fulfill our biggest dreams. here’s to letting all our imaginations fly free!

p.s. i’ll be debuting winged at the international quilt market in pittsburgh may 16th-18th. winged will begin shipping in june. check your local quilt shop for availability or this link for online shops. :)

my BIG news!

April 9, 2013

reminisce by bonnie christine for art gallery fabrics

hey friends! today i get to FINALLY share my BIG news with you, something i’ve been wanting to do since november (and teasing you along the way)! i am so (so so so so) excited to announce that i am art gallery fabrics newest designer! eeeee!

many of you know, being a fabric designer has been a dream of mine for many years, and i couldn’t be more excited that it’s finally coming true! most importantly, it’s with my most favorite company. art gallery fabrics is modern, fresh and fun. their cotton has a superior thread count and fine weave, which gives the fabric a super soft and luscious feel.
 

my first collection with art gallery is called reminisce. it was inspired by sunshiny days and simpler ways. it’s full of sweet summery hues and has a very vintage feel to it, and it will be coming to stores in june!

in celebration, we’ll be chatting about all things fabric, designing and blogging today on two different talkin’ tuesday twitter chat sessions! follow hashtag #talknt2 for our first chat from 1-3pm EST and #talknt for our second chat from 9-11pm EST tonight. you can come join in the conversation and ask us anything! for more info on talkin’ tuesdays, check out this post.

tips:

>> i use tweetchat.com to easily follow and participate with the chat sessions, check it out!

>> find me on twitter here: https://twitter.com/gohometoroost

>> be sure to include hashtag #talknt2 for the first session or @talknt for the 2nd session, otherwise we won’t see your tweets!

see you there!

when i heard about beth wold’s latest project, i thought, ‘i have to share this with going home to roost!‘. in a nutshell, beth has made over 1000 of her stunning photographs available for anyone to purchase, download and print themselves. you can use them for any personal use, which means you can print them, frame them, make cards from them, print them on canvases, give them as gifts, etc!

here’s just a sneak peek of her work:

beth wold's photography for personal use (9)

here are all the details, straight from beth!

What: Get a special price of just $7 per photograph

When: Friday 11/2 – Sunday 11/4

Where: Beth Wold’s Website

Why: I love photography, and I love taking photographs. I love it so much so that I had a surplus of 1,000 great images sitting on my hard drive that didn’t quite fit in with my Fine Art Portfolio collections. After some thought I got the idea that I could use this collection to help people get affordable images for their homes. Two problems solved – I have a purpose for my previously lonely photographs, and buyers can get quality photos for inexpensive prices.

How: The buyer purchases the photograph through my secure shopping cart, and they are emailed a link to the download. The download is available for 10 days from purchase

just in time for the holidays, these would make wonderful prints to use as gifts- head on over to beth’s site to browse her collections!
