Collaboration with Patchwork Threads.

I’ve been really excited about my collaboration with Patchwork Threads, which was just announced at QuiltCon. I’ve always admired their work, and I really enjoy seeing everyone sporting their shirts. So, after some discussion and many sketches, we arrived at two new designs.


First, savor it.

There’s a bit of a reference to my book, but more than that, it’s intended to speak to what’s become a mantra for me (and I think many others) these days. It doesn’t matter what we choose to do, what matters is that we are thoughtful and enjoy doing it. It’s a good reminder, and one that we can apply to many things.


For that reason, I wanted the message to be a bit bold, but there’s also a little textural pizzazz…

I really like how the color came out. It’s a white graphic on a deep blue, organic v-neck. I’ve already imagined many outfits with this one…


The other shirt is a sketch taken from a new little houses design that debuted at QuiltCon. I only did a limited release of the pattern in Austin, but you can stay tuned for it to be released for real in my pattern line this spring.

This shirt features a hip little house with plenty of grids and hand-drawn realness. The graphic is a warm and wonderful flame-orange color on a natural, organic crew-neck tee.

Plus, it’s signed…making it super personal.

    I LOVE THOSE! The little house shirt reminds me of a poster I picked up at Taliesin West. I’ve added them to my birthday list, so hopefully someone will want to pick one of them up for me. 🙂

    I really like the Savor It tee, however, here in Canada we have a letter ‘u’ after the ‘o’, so I can’t really get it. Nice idea though!

    Can the house shirt be found anywhere now? Love it!

    Do you sell the Savor It tee anymore?
