These fabrics make beautiful quilts, pillows, bedding, headboards, curtains, handbags, learning to decoupage with them too!! upholstery. We also love laminate for raincoats and all sorts of waterproof applications. You name it and Sis Boom explores it. We love the quilting Community so much and the beauty they create and we love the fashion and home dec community for the ways they inspire new ideas.
My story is somewhat unique in that I grew up in the Virgin Islands far away from my original roots in upstate New York where my Grandma taught me to create yo yo quilts , cross stitch and embroider. Once I arrived in St. Croix Fashion took me by storm and Lily Pulitzer and Marimekko became my inspiration.
The island itself had the most beautiful patina on the homes and the buildings in town. The colors of the water and the depths of the sea are all part of my paintbrush. Livestock and wildflowers dotted the landscape. These images and vistas will forever be a part of me. I am so grateful for those years in the islands of the Carribean that have forever shaped my vision.
So Sis Boom, inspired by the past lives classically in today. The modern palette brings a fresh outlook to the lifestyle of today.
Today we also Bring you our first Book with Chronicle Books called Girls World. It's a series of Clothing Designs and craft projects and a beautiful quilt design, to make up your girls rooms!! It's so exciting and we are humbled by it's debut!! We hope everyone will find precious time creating with the Girls in their World. We are finding it's great for Birthday Parties, Girl Scout Projects, and just getting together. Teach a Girls World Class those are becoming hugely popular!!
