Wendy Slotbloom's "Frolic" for In The Beginning Fabrics

1.18.2010



I'm obviously totally in love with Wendy Slotbloom. In addition to her other lines (see them here ) "Frolic" (entire collection here ) is an awesome example of fun, bright colors, and whimsy. Owls, woodpeckers, raccoons, squirrels, and even a treasure map are included in this line, along with her signature florals and some checks. The squirrel treasure map has to be my favey fave, I'm a sucker for line drawings and the movement of the squirrels reminds me of my kitten jumping across our furniture. ;) Hey, don't forget to check out Lilypond, Feathered Friends, or Bloom. They all just make me happy!




Did you know that In The Beginning Fabrics is local to Washington State? While owner Sharon Evans Yenter has created quite a following for herself with such adorable fabric lines as Housework Whenever!, her son Jason also designs for the company, and other designers such as Keri Beyer are rapidly gaining in popularity.

I LOVE Wendy Slotboom. I got 1/2 yard cuts of the entire line, well just one colorway. anyway, so cute!! Her other lines are awesome as well. I used to live in Seattle so whenever I was there to visit (haven't been in a while), I would go to In the Beginning, when there was actually a quilt store. It was a great store, but I think it's gone now, right?

I believe the storefront is closed. I'm sad that I never got to see it, I used to live right in that neighborhood but before I got into quilting! =)
