Growing up, I always heard I was an incorrigible daydreamer, never in the moment, my head constantly in the clouds. My mind would wander from the classroom into a world of shapes and colors, completely forgetting where I was. Constantly drawing and buildingthings, often several hours going by, without me being aware of it.
This collection is a sweet and colorful nod to children like me who struggle with dyslexia and cope by creating alternative, creative worlds full of ideas – hence the collection name, Pie in the Sky. By being patient and continuing to create, you will eventually find yourplace in the world.
The Pie in the Sky collection is a fresh array of fabrics for spring and summer, with doodle-like flowers giving the designs a naive and effortless feel. The sweet motives and colors have a vintage look that was the point of departure for several quilt designs. Fun fabric names like WillyNilly, Whimsybird, TopsyTurvy and Cloudpie invite you to indulge in a happy, creative sewing escape. The projects created with this collection take inspiration from well-known vintage quilt designes such as “double wedding band” and“fan” quilts.
