Jive Cats: First Look

I received the first fabric sample of Jive Cats!
The feature panel came in the mail a few weeks ago. It really is something to have the work you breathed, slept and ate and put your heart into for such an intense period of time, right there in tangible form. I am so happy to see it, and yes I am bursting at the seams! I actually did tear up a teeny bit when I saw this in person. Colors look rich and deep—so pretty!

I showed the panel to my friends' three-year-old daughter this weekend. She went pretty crazy for the ice cream cone kitty—so funny! I am so looking forward to having some stuff for her whipped up from Jive Cats fabric. It's going to be just perfect for her.

Here is a "sell card". There is one for each colorway. These are large (11 x 17) heavy card stock, accordion-fold printed pieces with four panels containing images and information about the line. The Northcott Sales team will use these to introduce the line to their clients.

The printed piece features all of the pertinent information about the line. It also includes quilting patterns created exclusively for Jive Cats—very neat! The talented quilt designers at Northcott came up with some fantastic quilt designs for the collection. You can see the beautiful quilt designs here in the right rail. (I'm so tempted to commission someone to make a Jive Cats a quilt!)

 Hope you liked seeing the first look. I'll be doing a series of posts about the process of creating the collection a little closer to launch date, so please stay tuned!
