Hi All! I hope you’ve all been safe and well during this crazy Covid-19 epidemic. I’ve been quite busy (my last post was in December last year!) and haven’t had a chance to post. But this morning I made time because my latest fabric collection called Madame Fleur is now available in shops/online!
Also, for those of you interested, I have a big update at the end of this post. 🙂
Madame Fleur Fabrics
I did a quick search online and here’s where you can find some, as of now (April 2020)!
As a lot of you may already know, with every fabric collection I come out with I also gift all of you a FREE PATTERN! For this collection, I have two quilt patterns for you! Today, I’ll be sharing 1 of 2. Look out for the 2nd pattern next week. 🙂
This pattern is called Madame Fleur Quilt and uses 9 prints from my Madame Fleur collection. 6 of these prints have subtle, gold metallic shimmer in them for a beautiful finish. You can purchase yardage HERE, or at a local online shop in Washington HERE.

Here’s some inspiration for you! If you end up making it, be sure to tag me (@QuiltingintheRain) on social media to share as I would LOVE to see it!
This collection was inspired for my love of the Victorian-era. You can read more about my inspiration and see more photos at this post.
Thank you all for stopping by my blog! 🙂 I’ve been posting my latest on instagram, so please follow me there to stay up to date.
If you made it this far, I have some quick news:
Madame Fleur is my last collection for Lecien Fabrics. I’ve done a total of 5 collections for them these past 5 years. However, I will be designing for a new company…I already have a lovely collection in the works. This information will be announced soon-ish! I have to wait for them to give me the thumbs up first!
And yes, my 3rd QAYG book is well on it’s way 🙂
In addition, i’ve gone back to work full-time! You’re probably thinking i’m crazy, but I felt ready and it was a good decision for me and my family.
My boys are big now and my littlest will be in kindergarten this Fall. Like I said, I felt ready whereas a year ago I was not! Things change and i’m constantly evaluating what works and what needs to change, what’s best for my family, etc. I’ve always been inspired to have a job that serves an important purpose – if I’m going to be working 40 hours a week, it needs to be meaningful to me. The field i’m in is for clinical research to help find ways to eliminate suffering in cancer patients (specifically, brain and breast cancer).
I’m honored to be able to play a role in this, even if it’s a small role (i’m the person that helps makes sure all the regulatory documentation is in place for a clinical study to happen safely for the patients, among other things). 🙂 I of course went back to work amidst this whole pandemic so i’ve been working with both of my boys at home…timing is everything, right? haha!
Anyway, thanks for reading me and i hope you enjoy the pattern. Check back soon for the 2nd free pattern. Virtual hugs to you all and stay safe!
