Brambleberry Ridge is my newest collection with Michael Miller fabrics. It has begun shipping to stores and is now available in many online and brick and mortar shops.
Brambleberry Ridge evolved from a love of my great-grandmother Adeline's 1950's home in Dodge City, Kansas and my own current 1950's home on a little tucked away, hidden gem of a ridge line in the middle of the city of Portland, Oregon where coyotes, squirrels, rabbits and falcons are often present amid the blackberry bushes and trees.
Taking my great-grandmother's love of Rosemilk hand lotion, my love of her gloriously shiny costume jewelry and combining that with gold rimmed wine glasses and snack plate sets from the cupboards, a little mid-century gold gilt wallpaper, mirrored wall tiles, wood paneling and the always present hand tatted doilies on every wood surface from my various childhood homes, I wove all of this inspiration into a sophisticated, yet rustic collection of quilting cottons.
All in all, this collection comes from my love and appreciation of the delicate sophistication of that era and brings it full circle into a modern collection brimming with joy.
New paper patterns to coordinate with the collection are shipping to stores this week and will be available as PDF downloads July 15th.
