I’m still not model material but my quilts sure are!!
Kalissa was by the other day asking for quilts. She had printed new shirts and wanted quilts for the background of the photos she was going to take.
She told me she reprinted Blessed are the Piecemakers and printed a new shirt and needed a burgundy quilt to use.
The next thing I knew she had me with the quilt…the shirt on and me posing on the bench outside my house. Oh dear. I am not model material…BUT hey, I do love the shirt. I really love the shirt. Can you see it says, “Sew Happy”?
I really think the shirt is perfect. I love the destressing on the machine so the printed part isn’t too thick. Sometimes shirts with a big logo use too much ink and the shirt seems stiff. This doesn’t.
(If you’re wondering about the quilt, shhhh. It’s a secret still under wraps. Stop back on Tuesday and I’ll tell you all about it.)
I teased Kalissa and said that she’d have to gift me a shirt for my modeling skills.
She said only if you pose again. So…look what she had me doing…This is the V-neck version of “Blessed are the Piecemakers”. I do like the V-neck version even better I think.
The quilt is our Two Charming quilt…It can be found in our shop.
For those of you who are curious, the quilt in the picture below is my Scrap Crystals quilt. You can read more about it HERE. It’s a Bonnie Hunter quilt and can be found in her book More Adventures with Leaders and Enders.
Kalissa also printed this one. This is a V-neck too. She shrunk down the image from the “Sew Happy” shirt and took off the wording. This is a small logo. She has had so many people asking for V-necks in the shirts she’s has been printing and wanted to offer the “Sew Happy” shirt in a V-neck format but her printer told her it couldn’t be done as the design is so large. This was their compromise…a smaller image to the side. What do you think?
Here is a better image of it.
This one was printed in a smaller quantity as a test run so if you’re in love, grab this one ASAP.
Kalissa and I chatted for a bit. She left. I put the quilts all away and settled into supper. Then I got a phone call from her and she said, can you come over to the cemetary in five minutes. I said sure…why?
I figured there was some problem with Kramer’s headstone…but nope, that wasn’t it.
I got there and saw these four…Kalissa had these “America Needs Farmers” shirts printed. She had them printed in adult and kids sizes. She needed me to be the photographer. Oh my word, from set layout (my quilts) to model and now to photographer. I don’t think I get paid enough. (Totally teasing. I love helping her!!!)
It turns out that there is a cornfield right next to Kramer’s headstone at the cemetary so that’s where we snapped pictures.
Fair week is coming up around here so these shirts are perfect to wear to the fair. Carver, he’s a natural model.
I really like these and she’s already sold a bunch.
If you have a John Deere lover in your family, I think the colors of this nicely compliment a John Deere.
She also had these printed in “color blast” option but only in adult.
I like the plain gray better…but I think it’s fun trying different options.
So that was my day as the set design, model and photographer.
If you’re looking for a shirt, she has them available HERE in her Etsy shop.
