All the warm weather has put me in the mood for some spring cleaning! My fabric closet in my sewing studio was a mess! I could not find anything and I was getting pretty cranky about it.

This weekend, I decided to tackel my sewing studio. After about 15 hours of cleaning, sorting and weeding out, I finally finished! What a beautiful sight!

I also sorted my Koala notions cabinet. I can finally find all my stuff!

 I’ve also been working on quilts for my new fabric collection, NAMI.

Here is a sneak peak. We will be debuting this collection at Spring Market. As we get closer to the release, I’ll show more of the textures and colors.

Be sure to ask your local quilt shop for Nami, designed by Karen Combs.

Nami - indigoNami is a oriental inspired collection. This is the wave design, inspired by an antique Japanese texture. This is the indigo and white colorway.
