One of the greatest things about being a part of this wonderful community is that we can always come together and share the love of quilting and sewing no matter your background. It’s collections like this one, that serve such a lovely reminder that love always wins! I am happy today to introduce to you Open Heart by Maureen Cracknell, celebrating love, respect, and beauty in everyone’s uniqueness. Expressing the power of love through the simple act of holding hands through an uplifting palette of pinks, soft greens & blues, and cheerful florals.

After reading Maureen’s questionnaire, (which you can find throughout the lookbook) and looking through every print, you can feel the story behind each print!

A personal detail that you might’ve not known is that the print Unique Beauty includes Maureen’s daughter and her niece’s beautiful silhouettes. She also pledged to donate 100% of the royalties from this print to Color of Connection, a nonprofit quilt teaching workshop focused on making quilting more accessible to more socio-economic classes, races, ages, and genders with the hopes to further diversify the industry. What a lovely cause!

Our rayon is known for its delicate drape and in this collection, there is one available, that’s just perfect for garments like lightweight dresses. Plus 2 knit prints, that are the coziest and softest knits in the industry, ready to be cut up and transformed into leggings, t-shirts, and much more. You can almost “feel” the softness through these pictures!
