drumroll please...

okay, okay.

the cat is OUT OF THE BAG!

My little sister (Becca) and I started a little venture earlier this summer. Remember all the fun things that can happen in a 5 + week period when you are on vacation? Yes. Me too.



So, we designed a fabric line and... shocker of all shockers... it's being produced in REAL life by a REAL company that WANTED our designs! So, what does that mean? Well, I'll tell you. They are PRE-selling it at the Quilt Market in October, and then it will hit your local quilt shops and favorite fabric places this next SPRING!

I know, we are dying too!!!

Our design "alias" is melimba & beccabury. You can guess who is who.

Pretty darn exciting. We can't believe it all actually happened, and it's been a ton of work to fine tune every little detail... hence, why we have been neglecting the blog-o-sphere for a looooong time.


Anyway, you want to see the rest of the line? Really? Well, okay. We'll allow it. Feel free to check out my new website (www.melimba.com, under the fabric section) where you can see what we've come up with.

We're already in the thick of coming up with more designs, so we're thinking this is pretty fun venture---not to mention a life-long dream. I guess Becca being a graphic design major and me graduating in painting/drawing wasn't such a bad idea after all!

Let us know your thoughts and also, what you think we should do for another line. We'd love to hear your opinions/thoughts/comments/whatev's.

Anyway, thought you'd like to know the news and see the goods! We've had to be pretty "hush hush" about it all, but now we've received the go-ahead to SHOW and TELL. So, there you go.

Gracias for your patience!

Of course you have your own fabric line! Because you are AMAZING!!! Your skills blow me away. Please still be my friend when you are famous ...

Katie said...

You guys are AWESOME!!!!!!!

Jordan and Jandee said...

Melissa! Congratulations, it is beautiful! I'm so excited for you, what pretty designs, love the umbrellas. And the world definitely needs more cool fabric, I've always wanted to print up some fabric of my own design, but have never swallowed the fee of Spoonflower (which I guess is moderately reasonable), not to mention that snarky little devil called "follow-through," which I am horribly devoid of. I can only imagine how much follow-through a project of this size would require. I think that deserves a double Congrats! Can't wait to buy my own Melimba designed fabric!

emilyhutchison said...

This is AMAZING! I can not even tell you how proud I am to have a friends who are so talented. I have been telling all my quilting friends about this! This is bananas!

Katie said...

I LOVE the FABRIC....Ideas are stewing in my brain for a quilt..can't wait!

Heather said...

I have a request, stuff for boys. You will discover soon that there are no cute things for boys.

The Tarin Family said...

Oh my gosh! Your fabric is so super duper cute! LOVE it!! Congratulations! I can think of a million different projects I could do with your fabrics... sooo cute!!

Janine Padilla said...

Melissa, I am finding out about this so late... but Holy Cow!!!! That is so Great!!! I had no idea you were even working on anything like that. Wow, way to go! You are truly amazing. How are you feeling by the way? You're probably in or close to your 3rd trimester right? Hope you're doing well!

Lindsay said...

Melissa! How absolutely AWESOME for you guys! I just got the details, and I can't WAIT to see this in my quilt shop out here--you two are SO stinkin' talented. Bravo.
