Susan Rooney- Designs to Love!

Yesterday I took advantage of some morning sunshine and drove over to Rochester, NY to visit with Susan Rooney and Ruthann Stilwell of Susan Rooney Patterns.  Susan and Ruthann work together to produce beautiful and interesting patterns.  Here are some of my favorites:

As you can see, these talented ladies turn out quite a variety of patterns, from purses to wallhangings, quilts and home decor items.  The reason for my visit to Susan's studio yesterday was to get a sneak peak at her new fabric line from Bernartex which will be debuting at Quiltmarket in May. Susan's designs are all about color and after this loooong winter, seeing her fabrics was like a breath of spring.  I think that you are going to love, love, love them!  Here's a sneak peak-

I can't wait to get my hands on this fabric!  Susan's attention to detail is amazing.  The flowers look like they were just picked from the garden and the plaids and blenders are fabulous.  Keep your eyes peeled for these lovelies coming soon!  And if you haven't tried one of Susan and Ruthann's patterns, you will want to click HERE and get sewing!  You will not be disappointed in these beautifully written and illustrated patterns.  They are among the best that I have seen.
