Making Waves with Kim Andersson’s Tidal Lace Collection – Blog Hop & Giveaway Today!


Welcome to Day 5 of the  Tidal Lace Blog Hop showcasing Kim Andersson’s first collection with Windham Fabrics. We are so happy to be a stop on Kim’s tour!

Tidal Lace Blog Hop Tour

I’ve known Kim for a few years–remember she was one of our guest bloggers, earlier this year–and I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Kim bring her beautiful drawings to life in Tidal Lace. The fabric line has a special place in my heart as it reminds me of my favorite beach getaway, the town of Bolinas, just north of San Francisco. And would you believe that Kim also visited Bolinas while working on Tidal Lace! (It is so special that locals have been known to remove the highway sign telling you how to get there!)

Beach Ball Quilt

Pattern for Making Waves is now available on our Pattern Page.

We designed A Day at the Shore for the Tidal Lace fabric line to capture a feeling of a day at the beach. Remember that moment when you unfold and flick your beach towel so it catches the wind and then floats down to a patch of sun-warmed  sand? Grab your ice cold drink, sunscreen, and summer-time read . . . it’s beach time!

Beach Ball Quilt

When Laura, Jennifer, and I had a brainstorming session to design a project for this collection, the image of horizontal waves of fabric rolling across the quilt immediately came to mind. Big, colorful balls, bouncing and bobbing on the waves, were the perfect accent to our beach day story. Including the white border to the top and bottom emphasized the look of a beach towel. It was so much fun making this quilt!

We are working madly on finishing the pattern for our quilt! Stay tuned and we will announce it at SHWS, but if you can’t wait, leave us a comment and we will contact you when the pattern is available. A video demonstrating the wave-making technique is in the works as well.

Thank you for visiting SHWS for the tour. Be sure to check out all the stops on the blog hop with their wonderful inspirational projects made with Tidal Lace. I posted the schedule and links at the bottom of the page.
