I asked my niece the other day "What's your favorite song? What's the jam that rocks your world right now?" She says..."Imagine Dragons." For the first time in my four decades I felt out of touch. "Um...who?" She's like, "Uncle Brian....Thunder." Again I had to say, "Huh? Who?" And here we are...
I think we definitely have some of the same love of music...her and I.
Not a yes-sir, not a follower
Fit the box, fit the mold
Have a seat in the foyer, take a number
I was lightning before the thunder
I get it. Being a dreamer requires vision...the lightning....before the thunder. For most dreamers, all we want to do is create experiences and things that hundreds, if not thousands...can enjoy. Of course there is always some little Negative Nelly somewhere...that loves to steal your "thunder." Don't let them. Ever.
The "Mothership" delivers when it comes to having a vision either with the Shoppe space or with the quilts we create. In fact, I have this vintage grey sofa that I had wanted a quilt to compliment. She took Camille Roskelley's Swoon and created her own "thunder" with this stunning version which we have dubbed, " Shades of Grey Swoon." No, it doesn't have 50 shades. LOL
Kitting this one is a process seeew if you'd like one please pre-order the kit here. We are only making enough to fulfill all pre-ordered kits seeew don't wait. They are limited to the quantity we make. I say it every time, and every time someone wants one a month after we've moved on and I have to say, "I'm sorry....but I can't make anymore."
And by the way...those aren't just any grey fabrics. They are woven textured greys and blacks that will lay up beautifully next to our gorgeous solid background. As for backing I would advise either a flannel or one of the wovens that are in the blocks. This really is not a quilt you would select a feminine backing.
If you haven't been out to the Shoppe in a while, now is the time to pay a visit. New collections have been arriving over the last several weeks, new projects and kits have been created and of course Mother Nature is doing her thing!
I'm out of room for today seeew don't forget you can subscribe to our daily email or follow us on Instagram!
Stay Seew-cial and enjoy the thunder! ~ Brian
