Will Work for Fabric

Several months ago I discovered Brigitte's blog, Farbstoff. I was attracted to her innovative use of color and also lovely quilt designs. We started emailing and we have created a cyber space friendship. Recently, Brigitte mentioned on her blog that she was crazy busy getting ready to debut her new fabric line, Juggling Summer, at the Kansas City Quilt Market in May, making samples and creating new designs and she wished there were such a thing as a sewing servant. I volunteered to offer my services and she quickly took me up on my offer. She said she wanted to have a small item and some kits made up for Sample Sale.  I told her I was pretty good at making framed clutch purses so we decided on a pattern and frame and she sent me some of her gorgeous fabrics to make into these clutches and to also make the kits.  I have made 5 clutch purses for her booth. These are only a few of the 33 prints available in Juggling Summer for Moda.
Simple Clutch

I am just a wee bit partial to this green one.
I have 22 kits all ready for the final instructions, which Brigitte will be adding once she receives the package in Kansas City. I'll be packaging these up and insuring them with the US Postal Service and praying they arrive safely. 
If you are one of the lucky ones who get to attend Quilt Market please stop by the Zen Chic booth and say "Hi" to Brigitte for me and check out her gorgeous fabrics and patterns.

This is not all of the fabrics, but I tell you there are some great blenders in this line and so many pretty colors and prints. I can hardly wait to receive my "servant's wages", when Brigitte sends me a box of her fabulous fabric.


Thanks for stopping by,

Sounds like a pretty good trade off to me and like you were incredibly helpful in a time of need. The clutches look wonderful, as does the fabric she has designed.

This sounds like a great trade off! And, you're right, these fabrics look gorgeous! I hope that my LQS's get some in (not that I'm opposed to ordering online) so I can see them in person!

The Marrakech Red one is my favourite - yes, you have done your friend proud.
