Shibumi home held a contest to select their inaugural team of designers for their new home decor brand. I was drawn to the brand because of it's modern look and on-trend color schemes. I knew it would be a good fit with my own design aesthetic. However I wasn't sure I was going to be able to find the time to create a new collection to enter because my husband was having surgery out of town the week of the deadline. Luckily I was able to pull together a collection that was modern, feminine and eclectic because I ended up being chosen! I am very excited to get started and can't wait for the official launch later this year! My winning pattern design collection is below.
The other talented designers selected as part of the Shibumi Design Team:
Dianne Rob Annelli
Sofia Cardoso
Charlotte Gale 
Esther Longmore
Amanda Joy
Lidija Paradinovic (Grand Prize Winner!)
Sareka Unique
Frankie Andrea Van Mourik
Catherine Worsley 
Lesley Young

Myself and the other designers will be highlighted on the Shibumi Home Facebook Page in the coming days, so be sure to head over there and like their page. Shibumi Home is also offering 20% off your first order to the first 250 fans here.

Shibumi Home is a revolutionary shopping experience for women who love to decorate. Their mission is to empower home decorators to confidently create unique, "eclectically coordinated" design statements that express their personal style and creativity!

The quilt pattern is free to download from their website here or you can view it on the Vetmari site here.

You can also view this quilt at P&B Textiles booth at Fall Quilt Market in Houston later this month. Stop by booths #1356 & 1361 to see Fontaine and Blushing Blooms in person and pick up your free copy of the printed pattern.

This fabric collection was designed with a romantic Art Deco influence that I also reflected in the quilt design.  Fabric will be available starting in January, so put this gorgeous quilt on your to do list!
