my mom is such a sweetie. she stenciled the entire back wall of my booth with my new falling daisies stencil. it was hard work but it turned out so pretty!

after only 3 short days, it was time to break down!

the art gallery fabrics girls! bonnie christine (that’s me!), leah duncan, pat bravo, bari j, jeni baker and angela walters

my first experience having a booth at quilt market was so fun and incredibly inspiring. i’m not sure that i know what to do with myself now that’s it’s over! i was able to meet so many lovely people and experience the joy of quilt market from a whole new perspective.

next week i’ll already be putting the finishing touches on my next collection for art gallery fabrics which will debut this fall. i’m so excited about it, i can’t wait to let you start seeing little tidbits of it!

thanks so much for your support and general all around sweetness. you guys are the best. xox, bonnie

one of my dear friends cut me a bouquet of ranunculus from her garden several years ago, and it’s been one of my favorite flower ever since. so many petals layered one on top of the other make it seem as though they go on forever! what’s your favorite flower?

spring bulbs

each day as the ground becomes warmer and little buds begin to sprout, i squeal with excitement as spring flowers begin to bloom. one of the things i get most excited about is having fresh cut flowers in my home and on my table. to me, there’s nothing more refreshing or beautiful than keeping flowers in the spaces where i spend the most time. i hope these springtime place settings will serve as inspiration for your upcoming gatherings!
