Earlier this year I became a Michael Miller Brand Ambassador and all I can say is WOW, they have some amazing collections!
In full transparency, I was kinda nervous about the whole thing. I mean I’m a scrapper by nature, not a whole cloth girl. That means, I rarely work exclusively with one fabric company for an entire project, let alone one collection. But I have quickly learned that there are many perks from working this way.
One major perk of working this way is no stress color matching!! If you love a collection and have a pattern in mind, you can just grab the assorted print offering and go straight to the cutting table. Here is a peek at the La Vida Loca collections. Between the Lammas and the cactus, I was in love! I turned it into a duffle bag and Amanda grabbed it so fast, I still need to get pictures!
There are fabrics from many different fabric manufacturers in my stash but never really took into consideration the quality of a fabric line as a whole. Sure, I looked at each print but never a wide range of color, hue, and prints. The one thing I can share from working closely with Michael Miller fabrics this year is just how consistent the weight and hand-feel of each piece that I stitch with. From the lightest of whites to the darkest of blacks, the uniformity is pretty awesome.
If you are not familiar with their fabrics, I highly suggest that you check them out! Some of my favorites include their basic lines. Garden Pindot, Graydations, and Hash Dot. Plus, let’s not forget their wide-back collection. That is a lifesaver when you are looking to finish a quilt quickly!
Okay, let’s get to it. You can watch my interview with Rob below. We pretty much cover it all. Sewing stories, new fabrics, sneak peeks and more. He was so much fun to connect with and had me laughing the entire afternoon!
Now, I know things have been quiet around here but I promise, I have been busy dreaming up new designs and working on many secret projects. I even share a few sneak peeks in the interview and am so excited to share more in the coming months!
So keep your eyes peeled and stay tuned because as a Michael Miller Brand Ambassador there are much to share!
