V and Co: look at all your pretty

hi there. :) so glad you like the new line. i like it too. :]
i have a few minutes today to breathe because my quilts aren't back from quilters and pretty much most of what i can do up to this point is done for the deadlines.
i wanted to show off a few of the lovely pictures that have been sent my way or that i've seen around the web. this lovely + quilt is made in simply color by candace over at made with love she made it for her husband. very lovely indeed!!

 i keep getting lots of cute little emails from all over the world saying "hey!!!! i have simply color in my neck of the woods!" and "off the beaten path i found your fabric at this cute little quilt shop!" one in particular is this insanely cute shop in GERMANY:
meet Grete's little shop in, as she describes: the middle of nowhere Germany. 
this adorable little shop that was originally a chicken coop before it became her quilt shop.

and then she sent me the pictures of simply color that had just gotten there at the beginning of the month to her shop.
personally i want to get some adirondack chairs and camp out on her little patio reading a book and hand binding quilts. man i wish i could have her come over here and make my yard look like that. oops. okay i got off the subject! okay well check out her blog here oh my! and check out her dresden plate in simply color here too!
we've emailed a couple of times and she just told me that she has been getting so many emails and  orders from all over germany, switzerland, austria, and italy.
0_o well.
that makes me super happy!!!
oh and pssst: she just told me she wants the full next line as well. so all you europeans sending me emails and asking where to get it: check her out 
thank you Grete for sending me pictures!!  and your fun emails :]

next simply color love:  we have this lovely quilt made by samantha of making life prettier using alison of cluck cluck sew's pattern and my simply color layer cakes.
samantha did an excellent job! loooove it and i may need to make one this summer.  :)

then we have little miss anna of noodlehead. love anna, and love this quilt. :] anna knows my address and i constantly remind her that she has it and is welcome to send me any of her uber cute stuff she makes including her two adorable (should be my daughter's best friends) daughters.


another super fun simply color project with just the ombre solids is this beauty by the blue chair called ombre lattice :) very lovely!

ooooh but you guys have been working on your V and Co patterns as well! check out some of the latest put up on flicker!:
sha sha sha la rue's "hanging the wash" barn dance baby quilt is so SO cute, love the little gal in the center of the star, and also LOVE the little bit of POP of orange in her binding. very pretty.

oh and all of you keep loving that houndstooth quilt:
Houndstooth quilt for my BFF

this one is marked as "for my BFF" by daisy spirits
and this one by leslie unfinished has got to be one of my faves with the pop of lime green. nicely done and love the way you set up the blocks!
Plaid Houndstooth Quilt
and this one by lindsay szechenyi is one that i love with print fabric. i want to make one with prints next i think.
Houndstooth Quilt Top

you guys are starting to show off your chelsea bags too!:

and last but not least for this time around of show and tell:

trish's color combos make me happy. she makes me happy too. she is so super sweet as is her color combos.

and well now back to doing my thing of catching up on the computer and BLOGGING holy moses i'm behind on that! i still need to tell you about my clark griswold sledding adventures. maybe tomorrow i'll get that up on the blog. :]

Yes, one day after i have asked you the question where to find your fabrics in europe, Grete was the one who makes us fans so happy here in Germany. I have just bought some of your fabric there and i am looking forward to your new line, and now i know, Grete will sell this too. Thank you for your lovely blog and your lovely work.

Good to hear that Grete has your fabrics! It´s not always easy to find cool quilt fabric in my neck of the wood (middle of nowhere in Austria) I have ordered from Grete´s shop before and the service is great!

So many fantastic creations from your patterns and your fabric! :o) I *loved* making your hopscotch pattern. Thanks for including my picture.
Have a super weekend. Trish

Ohhhh - dang, think I need those patterns for my shop, too! Definitely gotta do that bag - sweet...
And thanks for your kind words, you are most welcome on my patio, I still got a few quilts waiting for their binding - and no problem with showing you how to have a yard like that, I'll just let you pull out weeds for - oh.... 2 weeks and when you are done, you can start all over again. I already told my blog readers - next life? A loft, a cactus, a white sofa, childless (got 5 by the way - nice round number that... tell your husband :o) and single. Ayup.

Hi Vanessa,

I am absolutely in love with your fabric (the new line as well) and can't wait to do a quilt and the lovely dresses you made for the quilt marked. Adorable!

And by the way: I am one of the lucky ones very close to Gretes shop and I can tell you: One of the nicest places I have ever seen. And such a wonderful woman, full of humour and ideas. So if you ever visit Germany (again?), take the time to go there.

Greetings from Germany and thank you so much for your lovely blog, the patterns, the book... I just love your style.
