When it came time to design Big Sky Lodge, I knew immediately I wanted to design a flannel group that was more masculine in nature, yet still gender neutral. We get lots of comments and requests and believe me, we do hear you and we do listen. In my time here, the few flannel groups we’ve had have been feminine and or baby themed, so it was definitely time for a more masculine group.
I’m quite lucky to be living in the Pacific Northwest, surrounded by all this natural beauty, which is also a great source of inspiration. From the wildlife to outdoor elements, to having Pendleton right in our neck of the woods. I’m a huge fan of Pendleton and was inspired by their aesthetic. I really wanted to incorporate some plaids and woven textures like herringbone and houndstooth. I just love Woolen Plaid, Trapper’s Houndstooth and Rugged Herringbone.
My other favorite thing about this group is definitely the color palette. I think it’s warm and cozy, traditional and modern all at the same time.
When it came time to photograph this collection, I again was very lucky to be here in the Northwest. I went to a lodge that just fit the theme perfectly! This was a really fun group to photograph and certainly got me in the mood for the cold weather, and being able to get cozy by the fire and snuggle with my Pasquale (my French bulldog).
As for the kits in this group, well… they’re all great!
I think Marked Territory is my favorite, it’s stunning! I love the blocks and the flow of color.
I hope you all enjoy this collection. Whether you’re making a gift for yourself or a loved one in your life, I’m sure you won’t be sorry once you’re all done and you can cozy up in this buttery flannel goodness.
