Pom Pom de Paris Giveaway

Out of the blue our new Spring 2011 line has arrived from Moda. I hardly remember looking at the strike-offs - it was a hot summer day in August - mom, Molly, Sofia and I were holed away at the St. Albert in Toulouse when the box arrived - I think we were headed out the door to find a tall cool drink.
Pom Pom de Paris is all about the very first Rose Show held in Paris in the 19th century. The blue ribbon went to the most beautiful rose - for color, small and form - Pom Pom de Paris was the winner! The colors of our new line are vibrant and beautiful - perfect for Spring! In addition to the old reds, there are touches of soft pink, pale yellow and beautiful grassy greens. I've already started to work with some of the sample yardage - and Penny is fast at work on a beautiful baby quilt with the sweet bird pattern.
I'm ready to send out a few bits to test the waters. Leave me a comment about your color mood these days and we'll pick a lucky winner or two for a box of Pom Pom fabric. Bonne Chance!

My colour mood is still firmly aligned to your previous lines, since I am currently elbows deep in a kaleidoscope quilt using RJ, Rouenneries and LdeN! But Pom Pom looks quite pretty, and I'm certainly open to new colourways!

Lisa said...

Lately my color mood is Red, Ivory, Blue and a bit of Cheddar. I do like cheery colors (a lot!) but most of all especially love the old and decrepit. I think for me it's the homey, familiar, 'that's how quilts are supposed to look' feelling I get when I look at quilts made from fabrics that have a sense of history. Love them!! ~~Lisa

Abigail Prescott said...

I'm in a strangely turquoise mood lately, paired with linens and whites. I look forward to the debut of the new line!

Cindy Swan-Eagan said...

I've found myself aligned with very traditional fall colors lately - the golds, reds, greens, and browns - the warms. The Pom Pom colors look so yummy, I may have to get out some different colors for painting, sewing & wearing - they made me smile!

MARY PERNULA said...

Mine at the moment is stillin reds/ yellow and golds/ but I am seeing blues and white comming in. HUGS MARY

James-Linda said...

Candace said...

To be honest, I love everything that you put out. The colours and patterns are perfect for the quilts I make for weddings: pleasing to the women and the men alike.

I'm excited about the new colour lines for a medallion quilt I've been planning but haven't found the perfect French fabrics yet.

Suzanne said...

This group looks a little more like 3 Sisters than French General. Pretty though. Our store is pretty saturated with the previous lines. We have bought and sold tons from all of your previous lines and love how they work together and so nicely move from one collection to the next. I have been begging for (and have asked you before) for that Restoration Hardware look of hempy linen textures in shades of tans and taupes. I'd love to see you incorporate those tags and labels from your previous post. I love stamped, fadded french words on textured fabric. A collage of tags and labels with a splash of indygo and red. Not a huge line. Oh, and maybe some of those trims from your swatch cards and more ribbon with french words. If you read my blog you can see how we have used your collections and see some ideas of what I'd like you to do.

I just want to thank you for opening that door to Moda and the quilting world. It's been a wonderful few years with you on board!

Merci

Ellen said...

I love your new fabrics!
I'm in a brown mood these days. I love Autumn, especially with the lovely sunny weather we have now. But the days are shortening, the dark months are ahead of us, and therefor I'm starting to work with (and wear) darker colours again, with dark brown as my favourite colour at the moment.

Debby said...

Wow! What a lovely fabrics. I'm in for every colour if it's not to bright.

Debby

Gail said...

The fabrics are very pretty, I love the color combinations...they work well together.

Margaret said...

The fabrics are gorgeous! I've lately been into more bright colors myself. I'd love to win some Pom Pom!

Cathi said...

My colour mood always includes pinks, reds and deep creams and greens. I'm still working on a project with some Rouenneries and don't want to finish it as it is such beautiful fabric to work with!!

Tonya said...

I have loved every design line with the colors and patterns. I would enjoy opening the box of fabric and dreaming of all the yummy sewing projects.

Joy said...

I always enjoy your fabrics - they are lovely, classy and soothing to work with. I admit I am partial to your classic colors, but I really like the pinks you've included in this new line. Right now I'm working on Christmas gifts so my "color mood" is definitely red + green!

merumo said...

My color mood is always red :) Anything in red makes me happy and comfortable. But fall is the only exception, I really enjoy cheddar/orange x black for this time of every year. Your new fabric like looks so beautiful!!

Jen said...

My colour mood is mostly pumpkin with a little bit of yellow and red as hints. But of course that depends where I'm looking in my house. Watery turquoise is also in my mind's eye.

Reader said...

J'aime assez ces tissus. Send them to me (in the U.S.) so I can take a closer look. :-)

Elizabeth said...

My color mood is always in your previous fabrics.....but, the Pom Pom series really reminds me of a summer day in Provence. I don't think it is over the top cheery and had a more subdued fresh spring/summer look to me.

Sherri said...

I'm in love with every collection you've produced, and this one is no exception. Yes, the colors do look more like spring and summer, but they are beautiful as well. My color senses seem to change with the seasons--I'm really enjoying working with fall colors right now--muted browns and reds.

NancyDaQ said...

I'll bet you'll like them more in the spring than you do now. Fall and winter always mean darker colors to me.

Rafael's Mum said...

I work in waves... sometimes everything is duckegg/cream... then again a total rouenneries/lumiere/rural jardin mode, with the blues and the reds separated (i'm funny like that). Strangely enough I found a 'lost' rouenneries FQ in my LQS, stuck on its own in a box of bright colours, so I had to rescue it and it came home with me to live with the half yds who are waiting patiently till I get to them. Then I get a total colour wave and the brights are flying out of the door... but I always come back to chic and I must say, Pom Pom is maybe a little brighter than of late, but that doesn't bother me in the least, the lovely creams and greens are gorgeous, and it is always good to have a bit of everything isn't it? Variety is the spice of life.

Sue said...

Still A very red girl myself and love that you have some toile prints in their again. A girl can never have too much toile- VERY FRENCH and very FRENCH GENERAL.

badlandsquilts said...

I do love the aged reds & naturals of your fabric lines, but here in midwest winter will soon be coming and there is nothing better that sewing some bright cheer fabric when it is blizzarding out! (so I think you made a good choice!)

Lisnaweary Quilts said...

My mood has changed recently to very grey/purple and blues. Not in keeping with the current autumn tones around me!

Fabulously french said...

Love lots of bright colours but think that maybe due to the fact that we are in Provence on vacation at present.

Rachaeldaisy said...

It's spring here in Australia and so those slightly springier colours are appealing to me at the moment. That being said I'm making a quilt with Lumiere de Noel with a bit of Rouenneries at the moment and I just love the creams and reds. You do the best reds!! Pom Pom de Paris is such a fun name!!!

Robin Thomas said...

Too happy...I would be too happy to be included in your give-away. I mean, please count me in. Tickled pink I will be...
Thank you.

Reader said...

I don't have a consistent color mood; it depends on the context (clothes? furnishings? website colors?). I like most reds, with the exception of orangey reds, and most pinks, with the exception of hot pink. I like muted blues and grays.

The only color that I dislike almost universally is yellow. And I hate orange for clothes.

barbara r-g said...

i like to think my color mood is uplifting and cool. yet when i look in my closet, the fabric i chose, my pillows and things around the house i tend towards earth tones. i would love to reach out and try something new. who knows maybe this will be the lucky day. thanks for the chance!

ruth ann said...

The new colourways are very nice!!! Sometimes the colors can look muddy if the values are the same. This collection will definitely kick things up a notch!!! I like the eclectic, collected over time look!!!
Ruth Ann

Elizabeth Ann said...

I just love all pretty fabric and that first picture took my breath away. I am waiting for you latest line to hit the stores - sometimes its hard to wait.....

Quiltjane said...

My colour mood these days is deep reds, creams and the stormy greys of a tropical thunderstorm. I love all your fabrics and have every range. I would love to win the Pom Pom range.

Stina said...

When winter is coming up... I am totally absorbed by the colour Pink.. dont know why... must be a perfect match.. The white against... lovely pinks.. makes my heart sing..:O))
The new fabric line looks just wonderful... have sewn with two fabric lines.. and every one have come out just wonderful.. and I know this one will be as pretty!!

Judy Grubbs said...

I am looking out my window and enjoying the beautiful yellow, orange and red leaves.

Catherine said...

Kaari
I would luv to see the fabrics in real life...I really do like pink, but I am picky about the pink I like...lol
I have been into a soft color mood, cream, aqua, and pale pink but yesterday was drooling over your lumiere de noel collecting, thinking it would be perfect for my December Daily album/journal.
Keeping my fingers and toes crossed.
Catherine

Kari said...

I'm a bit all over the board lately. Fall has me in the mood for rich caramels and browns tempered with muted sky blue, but I've also been drawn to happy, clear colors too--preppy green and navy blue, with a touch of lavender, fuchsia and butter yellow.

dorylyn thomas said...

I cannot seem to leave behind my earthy browns, dull mustards with shades of black and creamy vanilla and always a blend of those muddy reds...BUT I am willing to change! The Pom Pom colors a beautiful!

Jeannette said...

I am still in my red phase, from brights to earthy reds. I love the dusky blue and aquas that tone with them. I have most of something in all of your ranges and love the way they can work together.

Lizzie said...

I'm entrenched in spring/summer colours here as we wait for warm sunny weather after a long, windy and wet winter. I'm yearning for yellows, reds and summery blues, sunshine, roses and summer skies ....sigh, soon......
I do love those new fabrics, scrumptious..!!

CaraQuilts said...

With autumn colour here I'm ready for the clear bright, but slightly muddy colours of fall. Though I've been working with Maison de Garance and it had just felt so right lately!

Mimi said...

You certainly have comments to read and ponder. The pull of French General is the elegance of prints and colors. Since there are many FG collections out there we have seen that they can be used together. This is a plus as well. No, not all 40 fabs work with all new ones but there some work very well together. Very nice for this quilter who often does not finish a quilt before the next group arrives. Makes finding backs and bindings nice.

This Pom Pom group is different but beautiful patterns and nice colors. I can see myself taking some of them and creating a quilt with some prior FG fabric that is "waiting".

michelle said...

I love the colours in your previous lines. I always drawn straight to them if I see them in a fabric store! But looking at some of the new colours I can see a quilt for my little girl as she moves frmo a cot to her "big" bed...

Irene ~ RE~VINTAGED said...

Beautiful range!!
My colour of the moment would have to be a soft aqua as that is going to be the basis of my dream kitchen.
The cream/red combo is a winner in my creative imagination though. Linens and cottons.

Robin C said...

my goodness! what beautiful colors. Your fabrics just scream "take me home". My color mood is in the fall mode right now, probably because the leaves are starting to turn colors.

Golds, brunt orange, dark red and all ranges in between.

Julie Deuvall said...

I am a HUGE fan of your work!!! This line is very beautiful and will work well to make something special for my little girls. I am always in the mood for red. Thanks for the chance to win some gorgeous pom-pom.

Gretchen said...

My color mood is always cool grays, purples, and sage green. I adore gray as a neutral and am saving up a bunch from Rouenneries. I am ready to dive into a project with Maison de Garance though so I'll be in a rouge et brun mood. Thanks for the great giveaway and thanks for all your wonderful fabric lines.

Susan Brubaker Knapp said...

I think it is lovely! Sometimes it is nice – and good for the soul – to take a step away from what is comfortable and familiar. I almost always lean toward very bright, clear colors, but I adore your fabric lines for their vintage look.

Michele said...

Oh I know what you mean. Once in a while I drift into brighter colours if I am working on says florals or a gift.I get it out of my system for a while but it does often impact and expand the creative ideas for the next project or even one down the road. I usually work with a more faded, more muted pallette to give the illusion of instant heirloom or antique.

Jenni said...

As it is spring here right now, these new colours look absolutely perfect to me. My favorite though - the colours I always return to are the blues and ivories with a touch of old red (rose madder).
All of your ranges have been lovely, sometimes we need to move past what we have become too familiar with in order to appreciate our favourites with fresh eyes.
Keep up your wonderful work, please.

Anonymous said...

Nice job but we all love your original reds and blues so very much! It's what makes you unique!

Connie P.

Vicky said...

I love everything you've done so far, and will get this one, too! My color mood has turned to fall, but all of my moods have some shade of red in it. The darker reds you have here are perfect for the fall/winter!

Mary said...

You just keep outdoing yourselves. It is glorious looking fabric. Count me in!
Mary

Heidi said...

Kaari, I just adore all your fabrics!....At the moment, I am using some of the fabrics from your Christmas line to re-do our small upstairs bedroom!...It all is coming together quite nicely,...very quaint, very charming!...Just as all your fabrics are!...Wishing you a delightful Autumn!...Your friend, Heidi XO

Judy said...

I also like these muted reds and linen tones. Very traditional and timeless.

Cindy and Joe said...

Color! Today my favorites are a hyacinth and apple green resting on a bed of neutral linen. Tomorrow, well, you will have to wait and see.

june cleaver ; ) said...

My color mood? Always the classic linen and brick, with a dash of sage. But recently, I have think it's fun to lighten those up with a pinch of peachy/pink, bit of buttercream yellow, and a splash blue.
I love your fabrics. Thanks for inspiring me to get back to my sewing machine, after a several yr. hiatus.

Ginny Worden said...

My colour mood would improve immensely with those happy colours in my sewing room, considering we woke up to snow Friday morning. Sunny colours would be wonderful.

Jen W said...

Oh it's fall so my colors are leaning
to oranges, golds and browns! Orange
is such a happy color. Love your new fabrics - they truly are beautiful.

Vickie E said...

Kaare, I love your fabrics..and those colors are fabulous. go with your first instinct ;)

Amy said...

I am in the mood for fall colors...oranges, greens, yellows, deep purples...my favorite time of the year!! I do like your new color palette. Sometimes you need a little change for fun...but I have a feeling that I will always like your fabrics no matter the color palette.

Ruth B said...

I'm in a mood for rich, vintage type fabrics. Reds, greens and yellows. And some orange. Never used to like orange but it is growing on me.

Jillayne said...

I really like the new line Kaari - especially the pinks. Pinks and taupes are my favourites right now but I can still fall for just about any grey around! I can't wait til these new ones hit the shelves!

nonnie said...

Kaari - I love the new colors...but since I use it for mixed media instead of quilts, I may have a different view...if it is a little too bright, I can always tone it down with tea dye or ink...easier for me than jewelry...LOL...cannot wait to see the fabric ...happy fall - Nonnie

cakegirl said...

With the days getting cooler and shorter, I am drawn to deep blues, creams and browns. The new line looks beautiful to me and I can't wait to see it in quilt.

Becky S. said...

Pom Pom de Paris is beautiful--I love the pinks!!!
My color mood lately is a lot of aqua blue and red and white.
Merci

Dawn said...

my color mood... well, its remininscing of my trip abroad a few years back.... Grey, Rose and Green, I loved visitng Ireland and then there's my Paris mood Grey, Reds and Florals... I loved the Cafe's and flower stalls in Paris...Yummy Coffee, must admit I adored the crepe stalls too with raspberry jam crepes... yummo... ate to many..LOL... Love your new range.. adorable... very chic..

brigette said...

my color mood, is for those beautiful pinks and yellows that you've got right there!!!
i have all of your lines of fabric and i love them all, and this one is no exception.
you're going to love seeing things made from this gorgeous fabric kaari!
congratulations, it's beautiful

Ellen Easter said...

My colour mood at the moment is the brighter almost garish reproduction fabrics. That said I am also loving the more subdued reds, cremes & beige's - those antique hues.Your new line would fit in beautifully.
Ellen

Lesley said...

I think Pom Pom is lovely. Everything you do is wonderful!! But my all time favourite will probably always be Rouenneries. That colourway was heaven!

Sylvia said...

I love the lines you have put out before, but this one is also speaking to me. I am always enamored with anything pink and green. I think its the promise of Spring that those two colors symbolize. This collection looks like that to me.

Lilly said...

I'm in love with pastel colors like pink, blue, yellow, green...
Those fabrics are gorgeous!
And thanks for the chance.

Jo Ellem said...

Now I have seen these pictures, I feel decidedly "blue", at least my wallet will. I love the colours, the softer palette is lovely with the beautiful signature french general red. It's my pallete, my colours and how I feel.

madrekarin said...

There's nothing wrong with throwing out a bit of cheer now and then. ;) The colors are an unexpected pleasure from you! I do love the warmth that wraps itself around you from your traditional colors but this is just very pretty.
PS- I had to delete the original comment because there were too many misspellings. I don't have my glasses on. :(

Logan said...

I know what you mean about the color! But the line looks very pretty! Love the name! It would make a lovely girls quilt!!!!!

Simone said...

My colormood is totally Autumn... Not that I'm depressed or anything, but I just love those warm colors.

えり said...

My color mood is right now brown and rustic colors because of this autumn season.
When I'm expecting spring, I love light colors.
But I always love red and ivory combination.

Cathy said...

My color mood is warm right now since fall is upon us and winter will be here soon. This is not my favorite time of year but I do love all of the fall colors. The fabrics are beautiful!

Rachael Louise said...

Oh color moods! I have become absorbed by pinks and reds of late. Pink chiffon blouses cascading in layers of ruffles, rich red linen table clothes, pink and burgundy plaid wood coats, red tinted stockings under a black coctail dress, pink frosty lip glazes, cheery red baker's aprons...... delightful!!

Monica said...

Lately my color mood has been squarely planted in drab Civil War prints as I just completely a postage stamp quilt using these fabrics.

I'm ready for a change!

Thanks for the chance to win.

Front Porch Quilt Shoppe said...

At the shop we all love the greys and rich reds you have always done. They are so popular and we can't keep the pre-cuts in-store! I personally love the vintage feel you always put in your fabrics so whatever color way it is, I love it!

Charmingdesigns said...

My colors have been the colors of your latest pallete for quite some time. Love visiting you shorp. I'm looking forward to my next trip!!

sandy said...

I L-O-V-E them all! The colors of my living room are red, yellow, and sage. I am so happy when surrounded by these cheerful, bright colors!

Luned said...

Colour mood... Hmm, good question. When I'm making a quilt, the one thing it generally has is plenty of neutrals/greys, though I don't think of those as being part of the colour mood somehow. Been in a red mood for a while, with blue popping in too, though any pretty fabric like PomPom will keep my colour mood very happy!

Michele said...

I'm loving gray with everything.

Nancy said...

My color mood seems to always be brights but then the muddy colors of all your lines appeal to me too. I guess I am very eclectic and just love COLOR!

Pam said...

Seem to be loving the pale greys and linens still, but sometimes with a gentle use of color thrown in-which your fabrics are perfect for. I, too, would love to see you do a naturals collection-with the same french influences.

Naomi G said...

They look perfectly delicious to me!! Inspiring colours, designs and textures....

sewprimitive karen said...

Oh, I will always love stained / faded / old looking. Also love Pennsy Dutch colors :-). Pom Pom is gorgeous!

Julie said...

I have not even cut into Maison de Garance yet. I will be using leftover RJ, Rouen, and Luminere for a kaleidoscope quilt. I am always in the mood for anything vintage looking.

rderrett said...

I'm more of a bright clear colours type of girl but I love the use of grey that really came through with Rouenneries.

Pom Pom has an absence of grey and the tea stain brown and it looks even lovelier for it.

The soft clear colours are
reminiscent of a French printemps more than anything else - love the duck egg blue and the pale yellow!

jenyjenny said...

My current color mood is brown, but I am easily swayed by glimpses of others. I'd like some turquoise and red and cream together.

Becky said...

My color mood is one of sparkling, crisp color. I'm sewing a black and white.

Cassie said...

My color mood lately has been mustards and golds must be the the color of the leaves. The Pom Pom line is very beautiful like all of your fabric!

terry said...

looks beautiful like all your other collections. whatever you dont like- send this way.

Gay said...

I love all of your fabrics but I think this new line is just perfect for some of the quilts that I like to do. How perfect. Thanks for sharing your creativity.

The Shanty Girl said...

I am enjoying previous lines, but my color mood after looking at your new line......I do love to quilt but have been using french general to make Marie Antoinette inspired aprons. So after looking at your new line I can see the pinks going really well with some white muslin lace and some black french ticking.....ooh la la, can't wait for new line to hit stores, it is lovely.

Rachel said...

My colors are showing up as I decorate my new house, and I keep coming back to red, red and more red. I am throwing some navy in there too...

I like the looks of the new line! France could have put you in the cheery mood!

Anonymous said...

I agree with you on the colors you like, but all of us need a cheery pick me up once in awhile. I love your little fabric collages. a brown mutt in georgia

svelder said...

My color mood is crisp navy blues, turkey reds, chocolate browns and mossy greens! Love the cheddar and greys, too. Your new lines look great!

Anonymous said...

My color mood is always in the reds and neutrals. I love linen with a lttle red.
Good luck to all. Sandy

Lisa said...

My color mood lately has been brown, ivory, orange, reds, yellow, green...all the colors of the changing of the trees here in Northern Illinois.

Leslie said...

Red. My color mood is always red with aqua and black or brown. And in toile of course! Thank you for offering such a fabulous giveaway-I'd love to win it!

Cindy Olson said...

My color mood is cheery even when I am not in a cheery mood. I
like pink and red and brights because they lift me up. I think
those fabrics are just wonderful!

sko_G knits said...

i just rec'd my maison de garance, so i guess you can say i am in a brown/red/tan color mode! actually, the pink and yellow are brighter than your other lines, but they are still quite beautiful!

Dia said...

I'm in the mood for some mustard and burgundy. The fabrics look very lovely.

Debra S. said...

My colour mood today is deep mossy greens and suddenly I've begun to notice and appreciate blues. Your colours are beautiful in this line of fabrics.

Fiona said...

I love anything in muted vintage colours and soft soft pinks - Pink and Red are my favourite combination at the moment - Teamed up with some linen XX

Diane Langness said...

I just love pinks, I love them with grays and black. One day I will make my roman blinds in my kitchen with some of your fabrics. They are now in a black and white toile--it's getting close to time to change them.

Diane

pam1228 said...

I am strictly a red, turquoise (dull, not bright), brown, navy and cream lover! Bring them on!!!
Yes, I am a "drab" lover as well.

Babsarella said...

This fabric is stunning!!! I especially love the pinks!

Marilyn said...

I like the pink and yellow colors in your Pom Pom fabric! It will allow for different color contrasts in a quilt, but still keep that vintage look.

jerry said...

While the new colors are not the 'norm' that we have come to love in my shop from you, they are still very lovely. I have rarely found a fabric that I don't love, like most, I have my favorites. The new line reminds me of the colors I remember from our visits to France while my husband and I were stationed in Europe in the 70's and 80's.
I am certain they will sell very well.

Jerry

Carrie said...

I look forward to seeing Pom Pom in person though I have to admit that I really love the softer, muddier, more vintage look of your previous collections.

But "happy" is good. :)

My color mood lately has been all about whites and greys.... not sure why. I'm obsessed with tiny grey gingham which i can't seem to find here in the US...but I'd love to color my world with some of these Pom Pom de Paris fabrics! Jamie V in MT

I just completed curtains for our family's "atelier" out of the Noel line of the dark red stripes. And I like that dark red as we get into the holidays without being primary red, but a little darker, richer, more subtle color.
Love the photos of the new line! Will be great for Spring projects next year...
Jennifer Salazar

diedre said...

my moods swing every which way and so do my fabrics. would love to "mood" with your new fabrics. oh, a chance to get a box from french general!

Anonymous said...

My color mood is, and I sincerely state this....any and all colors that are introduced in your new collection. I have been fortunate to have been able to create some wonderful things with your previous lines, and so look forward to Pom Pom de Paris. It will be so lovely, without a doubt! Linda

Mary said...

As the seasons change so does my color mood. We are into Autumn and the various shades of green, gold, orange, brown and burgundy are making their appearance. Your new Pom Pom colors reflect the days of August when gardens are at their fullest. Each FG collection is always wonderful and inspiring. Thanks.

Patty said...

My color mood has to do with the greens, golds and reds of fall. The leaves are so pretty this time of year.

Cheryl said...

I love the French General fabrics. I like the colors muddy too. Gives it an old world look I guess.

I am into the reds and the neutrals.

becky up the hill said...

Your line of fabric always makes my heart skip a beat. Seriously can spot it across a room. I think these brighter colors are lovely and still look like French General. It would be fun to have some of the bits and pieces of your finds, incorporated into a line. The images and French words.

sally said...

I want my color mood to be exactly what this line says!! :) happy, go-lucky, and carefree!!! :) thanks for the chance to win!!

Joan Georghiou said...

I am forever a fan of red and lovely shades of green. But I feel blues taking greens place. Things like this happen every couple of years...but red always stays with me!

Megan said...

I am obsessed with all things fall. I love everything about it, the look, the smell, the taste (everything pumpkin!). But sometimes it is too much of the same. It is a rainy day here in LA and even though I am wearing mostly black I couldn't help but wear my bright red flats. A pop of color makes me a happy girl. This past week I sought out of the last bits of Rural Jardin Belle in Woad Blue all over the internet and sewing stores across the west coast to make curtains for my newly decorated living room. How fun to have those pinks and yellows pop in my mostly blue room!

Cat Allman said...

I've been taken with rusty colors of late: rusts of all shades, dark golden yellows and muddied grays, accented w/ slashes of faded lavender, french blue, and hints of sky or a pop of salmon. Not so much "fall" colors - just what's been appealing to me.

I've also been looking for a woad dying class in the San Francisco Bay Area after seeing the pictures from your french retreat. No luck so far, but hope springs eternal!

Thanks for the new collection.

Jennifer said...

I'm all over the place at the moment - I think children does that to you - they bring out the bright and kiddy in you rather than the "pre-children" reserved deep reds :-)

Barbara J said...

My fabric directions are currently leaning towards drab and 'dirty'. Quite into Civil War fabrics no doubt.

However, I still need to make a table topper or a placemat from the Rouenneries and Rural Jardin. A change is always good :)

Marieke said...

My colour mood is perfectly alligned with autumn colours. I love autumn, it's my favorite time of year. The leafs on the trees are changing to all shades of red and organge. I love taking our dog Guus for a walk in the forest these days. Guus usually wears his Rural Jardin fabric collar when we go there. I still have some Rural Jardin left in my stash but boy do I want the Pom Pom de Paris too! No fair French General fabrics are hardly available in Holland. I have to order it in the US and wait a week before I can finally use it. It's totally worth the wait though.

Shiree said...

ooooh Kari, 'cest tres bonne, magnifique!!!
what a wonderful collection of fabrics, I can hard;y wait 'til they reach our neck of the woods!My colour mood is very definitely every one of these e!

Marcia said...

My color mood is both bright and bold AND more traditional and muted. It depends upon the day and the season. Right now, the colors that catch my attention are the deep, muted greyed down colors of autumn foliage and sky. Autumn tree tones of red, brown, biege, and green - mixed with more vibrant fall wild flowers of golden yellow and red-purples. Then, throw into the mix aqua/blue of the fall sky. Guess I just like most colors. Thanks for this giveaway of Pom Pom - know will like it too.

Although I love, love, love your previous lines, I actually like this departure. I am looking forward to seeing it in person.

Regarding a "color mood", the bottom picture you took of the fabrics moves me so much that I am already wondering exactly who I can hire to create throw pillows, curtains, bedding....I am so thankful for your choices and can't wait to see them in stores. My computer monitor doesn't make them look as bright as you are describing but I really can't wait to see them in person! Congrats Kaari, they are all amazing!!!!!

Colors are a daily passion, from the clear bright to the muddy hues..the moods they bring like a cool drink on a warm day or a hot cup of tea on a day when nature itself is muted. I long to play with your new line, it's beauty and colors are refreshing as a cool drink.

Colour moods? They change as you walk through my house and with the seasons. I am going brighter this winter. With a new baby I think I’ll be indoors more with as much winter light as I can coax through the windows. Love the mix... I’ll be ready for more broody colours at the tail end of winter.

I lived a certain color palet my entire life, especially in my clothing. All pastel, all the time. Then one day a funny thing happened - my hair turned white and suddenly pastels made me vanish. It was quite a challenge to break my old habits and think in brighter tones. Once I accepted it I found it like a breath of fresh air. I was "free" to think in whole new directions. It's good to shake things up every now and then!!

My color palette has long been soft pinks, blues and creams. But lately I have re-discovered the jewel tones -- garnet, amethyst, deep aquamarine and a yummy amber necklace I inherited. These deep colors appeal a lot these days.

Shades of White, shades of grey. I know that sounds boring... but it's simple and elegant. I always love your greys... until then they were so hard to find!

Emma said...

Drab sums it up for me. Your new line is quite lovely, though different. Thank you for offering to share.

Vickie said...

I just revamped my kitchen with pinks and greens so that is where I am for now! I really do like just about any color! You new line is wonderful!

mackereltabby1 said...

I am in a turkey red, beige, and cream mood, perhaps with a little dash of blue, lately. Your current collection, though, looks just as good as your previous ones, color as well as pattern!

Cassandra said...

I am currently feeling the turquoise and chocolate browns at the moment and am half way through a quilt with your lovely Rural Jardin. Though as it is getting warmer here in Australia I think I will be going towards the yellows and blues of the sun and ocean. Thanks for the chance to win and for producing another line I want to buy!

My colors seem to change with the seasons, but I will always love the neutrals of linens, soft florals, burnt reds and sage greens. And ochres of course. Today I'm into deep purple dahlias in a bright green vase sitting next to orange pumpkins! But I also love brights . . . my favorite room in the house has pear-green walls and a pink sofa!

Lisa said...

Lately I've been in a purple mood, it's my favorite and always seems to make me happy.

irene said...

i used to love the darker colours, but find i love the reds and pastel combinations and with a shot of lime green in for some happiness. i just love the look of the 'older' looking colours and somehow am going more for those also. oh well, i just love fabric and i wont say no to any fabric. love them all xxx

Bunty said...

Hope I'm not too late! I love a red and ivory colour theme with maybe a duck egg blue or a pale sage green but love most combinations!

The new fabrics look gorgeous - can't wait!

My mood: navy and white - beautiful but slightly lonely and nostalgic. Just moved to a town and missing my favorite fabric shops and best friends. :)

Love, a lonely mountain Shasta

Siobhan said...

Looking forward to seeing Pom Pom in reality, difficult to make out the colours on this small screen. Either way, congratulations on another line. It's very impressive and you should be proud. I am one hundred percent addicted to the Rural jardin collection and am definitely in a red and blue mode. I find that the reds and fresh blues on white make me want to de-clutter my life and home. Keep up the good work x

bonniequilt said...

The colors look great..i'm already thinking of a zillion quilts to work on with the line....beautiful

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

I am mostly in love with the reds and pinks. Although I do quilt with other colors, the deep reds make me happy :-)

gertvr said...

My colour mood is orange, brown, red and green right now: I'm in the middle of making an autumn quilt.

Jacqueline said...

I have a weakness for red. The new spring fabric line just sings to me with inspiration!

Jennifer said...

I love so many colors it is hard to pick one mood. However, I can say that I always love your print designs and feel they would be wonderful in any color combination.

Linda said...

RED RED and RED lately. All different tones and shades. Everything I've been picking up has red. The fabric of Pom Pom is gorgeous!!

Dee said...

Red is so my favorite color and the Pom Pom line is Awesome. There is nothing I love more then French general

Kim at skeenadesigns said...

now that it is heading into winter and dull days, I look forward to bright fabrics... I know, I know, out of season! our new fabric line has some happy colours and great variations! I think the best thing to do sometimes is to get out of the colours you usually use,and stretch into something different - your lines do that for me!

Peculiar Whimsy said...

My mood has been scarcited. That's scared & excited. I just left my day job to start my own business. I think that's reddish.

thefairygardenerquiltstoo said...

Hi Kari, I just found your website though I've been in love with your fabrics for sometime and also the name. My fondest wish would be to live in Provence. I've even thought about selling my house so I could live there for a few years.

I've always been drawn to red and roses are my birth flower. Red is a punctuation mark in a garden.

What a wonderful name for a fabric line "Pom, Pom de Paris".

Gail :)

Sharon said...

Pom Pom de Paris - the name immediately made me think of connotations like flirtatiousness, amour, fun, romance, intrigue, passion and coquettishness and lifted my mood at once (it's been a horrible rainy day today here in Melbourne, Australia, with severe local flood warnings). It made me eager to create, to do something beautiful. I would love to experiment with these fabrics, at the moment I'm thinking of flirty cosmetic pouches for my handbag.... mmmmm....

Kim L said...

I love your fabric and love shopping at your store.

Sandy said...
