We’re so excited to help kick off the blog hop to celebrate the 85th anniversary of Jaftex! It’s an amazing accomplishment to be involved in the fabric world that long (we’re nearing our 25th anniversary, which we thought was impressive!), and we couldn’t be happier to celebrate a company that has been putting out quality fabrics, cultivating amazing designers, and producing beautiful patterns for 85 years! Congrats!
On our blog today, we’re hosting Henry Glass fabric designer and author (and a personal fave of American Patchwork & Quilting), Kim Diehl.
- Kim says: “I’ve been so blessed to be in the family of designers for both American Patchwork & Quilting magazine and Henry Glass Fabrics, so I’m beyond excited that we can come together today in celebration of Henry Glass’s 85th birthday. What a huge milestone! In honor of this event, I stitched up this sweet little “Color Me Happy” wall hanging using the beautiful jewel-toned prints in the Folio collection of quilting fabrics, and treated myself to some quality hand-quilting time. A step outside of my “normal” box when it came to choosing a color scheme, which made this project even more fun to make. I’m so proud to be a small part of two such amazing forces in the quilting world, and I’m looking forward to many more years of creativity together!”
- We say: Prepare for MAJOR Kim Diehl eye candy.
