Introducing my new collection – Soaked!

I really enjoyed designing the Soaked collection, I think it’s super cute!  I suppose psychologically I was inspired just by living in the Northwest and by the abundance of gray skies and rain we endure.  This collection is a fun way to appreciate a rainy day, wherever you may live.  I love the colors and  how the theme lends for some really cute images.  I don’t think this group is strictly for kids either, I think people of all age can find fun uses for this group.  

Puddle Jumper is a tribute to all those kids who love to make the best of a rainy day, by splish-splashing and jumping in puddles!

I absolutely love all three colorways of Raindrops; I love how simplistic yet fun this print is.

As for Lightning Bolts, I really like how graphic this looks.

Just like in Home Front, this collection also debuts our Laminate fabric.  I love that we’re offering this fabrication!  Sue did a great job designing with the laminates. She made the Toddler Rain Coat, but I’m a little sad because it’s kid sizes only and I desperately want one for myself!!  Thank goodness her Rain Poncho’s are just as adorable, and that I can make in my size!

I’d love to hear what type of projects you’ll come up with!  I hope you enjoy!

    This is my favorite collection I’ve seen at Connecting Threads. I love the color mood, and the designs are so different and usable.
    I currently am making a quilt for my grandson from your “Mastermind” collection, which is a really great ‘manly’ collection.
    Please keep coming up with these great AFFORDABLE fabrics. I appreciate it so much.

    I am thinking of covering some chair seats with this. I would be folding and stapling. Is this a good application for this fabric?
    With five grandchildren, I’m looking for a pretty, (which these certainly are!), wipeable surface!
    Thanks, Laurie

    Linda,
    Thank you, yes I’m loving the colors too!
    Dolly,
    Your words are so kind! I am really so happy you have loved my work and I can’t wait to see your Mastermind quilt!
    Laurie,
    I definitely feel you can use the laminate fabric for chairs and I don’t think stapling would be a problem. I would try and keep the staples close enough so it keeps the fabric nice and taught, but otherwise I think it should work fine. I can’t wait to see your chairs!! I miyself am planning on making some outdoor cushions for my patio chairs, I’ll blog about those when I get them done:)
    Ashley,
    Thank you!!!

    This is my favorite of your three new collections. I think it is darling and I agree that is would be great for light hearted grown-ups, too!

    I LOVE this collection!!! I received a baby quilt as a gift and now want to do my whole nursery in this theme. I don’t see any yardage (except a “kit”) on the Connecting Threads website. Is there anywhere else this grouping is available so I can do sheets, dust ruffle, curtains etc?
