it's a shore thing - header

it's a shore thing is a SUPER cute line by jack and lulu for dear stella fabrics.
it's SO cute that you really don't want to cut it.
y'all know those fabrics that you just want to keep in big chunks and stare at.

i first noticed dear stella fabrics at quilt market this past fall.
i had to admire them from afar because their booth was always SUPER busy.
and if i'm being honest, i was kinda bummed that i didn't get a chance to meet with them.
but then, after market, they contacted me.
and that made my day.

so after some emails, i knew that something rachel griffith was going to be in their spring booth.

impromptu - it's a shore thing

that something ended up being an impromptu quilt made with it's a shore thing fabrics.
note: the pattern is for a 90 1/2" x 90 1/2" quilt, but we went with a lap size for the booth.

my good friend marci made the sample and did the amazing wavey quilting.
{hi marci. xoxo.}

even though y'all know i'm not a summer girl, this fabric embraces what i actually DO like about summer . . . the beach. and flip flops.
oh how i love them both. so very much.

what do you like about summer?!?!

and for the record, i foresee myself using more dear stella fabrics in my future.
just sayin'.


Pin It!

I love Dear Stella fabrics. I want to make your quilt with one of their lines. I like the lack of snow and more daylight when summer is here.

Your Impromptu pattern is one of my favorites, and to combine that with summery-themed fabric - I love it. I need to make one!

Summer is THE BEST! I like - looking at, swimming in, sitting in, pontooning on, fishing in, watching skiing on, dunking in, jumping in, listening to loons on - my lake!

Super Cute Rachel! Dear Stella has some really fun fabrics.

There's not much I like about summer -- too darn hot and dry! (Ok, well, maybe ice cream, but that's it!) (No wait. The 4th of July. Now, really. THAT is IT LOL!)

Love your pattern! I like that I don't have to wear three layers of clothes in the summer!

I grew up at the beach... and I would have loved to have had a beach blanket like this one! (I love your Noodlehead summer bag too)!!!
