Advance Addition - Lakehouse pattern and fabric featuring Pam Kitty Morning

19 comments
It is pretty heady feeling to open a box and receive an ADVANCE COPY of a pattern I've been adoring and a full kit to make it.  I mean really.  I've been dreaming about how fun it will be to make Holly's pattern for lunch boxes with PKM fabric.  And now I have my chance.  
Generosity doesn't fall in my lap like this everyday.  The pattern is available next month here at FQS.  Pam's next line of fabric is called "Pam Kitty Picnic"  and will be available (I hope) next month as well.  I love the quality of Lakehouse Dry Goods.  They are wonderful fabrics to use. Petable!  Delicious!
Holly and Pam sent a nice assortment of fabric from Pam's past lines as well as some of Holly's Lakehouse designs throw in to sweeten the pot.  Love them all.
Everyone knows I'm a cheerleader and lover of Pam and her fabric.  I've kept every poster for all her lines.  They are on the bulletin board in my sewing room.  They just make me happy.
I really love the picnic idea.  How fun is that.  And I can use bits and pieces from the past PKM lines I have to mix and match.  That is fantastic.
I was actually sick over the weekend but I kept thinking about that box of fabric and that advance copy of the pattern....so I thought I would just make one for now.  It was so cute and so easy.  The instructions are really REALLY well done.  And take that from someone that struggles to write patterns and struggles more to read and understand other designers patterns.  This pattern is super easy to get and the steps work up really fast.  This is seriously a weekend project.
I love the idea of lunchboxes in a quilt.  I was a brown bag girl growing up.  Boo Hoo.  And I loved the cute lunchboxes other kids had.  So now I get 12 of my own and I'm not going to share.  This is going to be a quilt I will keep for myself.  It is such a happy and clever pattern.  How could I part with it!?

Thanks so much Pam and Holly.  I appreciate you both.  I feel so lucky to have something ahead of even the cool girls.  I'm the "it" girl with this pattern and quilt kit!
