I have never been an outdoorsy kind of gal, even when I was young. My kind of being outdoors was just playing with my cousins in the yard and making mud cakes. So, needless to say, normally a safari-sh theme wouldn’t excite me too much All that said, I did fall in love with these baby safari fabrics! And I am super EXCITED about them:
The baby girlishness is making me melt:
These flannels are from the Baobab collection by RJR, to be released in September this year. I am making baby quilts from these fabrics that are going to be featured in Fons & Porter later this year. Being in Fons & Porter is another FIRST for me! I will be working on these quilts sometime next week. So stay tuned for pictures — I will be doing things that are somewhat extra-ordinary with some of the fabrics:
So, if you are thinking to make a baby quilt in the near future — you might want to wait for the Baobab fabrics to be released. RJR has another more gender-neutral color way for these fabrics, and I am telling you, they are just as DARLING!
EXCITING! I will be interviewing a representative from RJR Fabrics on some interesting behind-the-scenes fun facts in fabric production. I invite you to send in your questions for Beatriz in the next couple of days as she and I work to bring you some interesting information. You can email me your question, or you can just ask the question in the comment section of this post.
