Marketing postcards of Sketchbook 

jill here...okay so I can't get the random number generator widget to come up as it promised and I'm tired of fighting with machines!  I ran the little numbers icon with 16 comments and # 16 was the winner!   You'll just have to take my word for it. Tamie is the winner of the Every Last Piece Book by Lynn Harris.  Thanks so much for all your comments.  Many of you lead a sordid (get that, not sorted) life of scraps like me.  I'll try to do better!

So on to our next market discovery.  We were so excited to see Sketchbook in a section of
 Art Gallery Fabrics.  In some of the quilts, we recognized several of the fabrics that we have used.  

We love the multidirectional "backgrounds".  They're just a little spicy.
These are two fabrics from the Gossamer collection. 
  •  Sharon Holland is the designer who we had the pleasure of meeting.  Not only is she a great artist but she's an Iowa State graduate, really nice and lived in Iowa!  The featured fabric below seems to step out of the usual color schemes with a nice balance of contemporary flair based in traditional "sketches": florals, dots, little textures.

Sharon Holland's designs in fabric and quilts/pillows.
Sketchbook quilts.
Variety, values and textures make this collection easy to work with!
Looking forward to seeing this collection in the retail market. 'Till next Tuesday...
