The Mad Hatter of Maui.
That’s the handle for the man behind the Mirror Ball Dot series. (Or, what I so comfortingly refer to as my stash.)
An interesting and talented character for sure, but what inspired him when it came to the name for this flashy coveted fabric line?
A Jennifer Saunders pilot. Yeah. Edina of AbFab. Somehow that just fits, doesn’t it?
The glam the flash… Somehow I like it even more.
Well, now you’ve got to hear the rest of the story. And when you start humming This Wheel’s on Fire, I’ll chime in.
Aah. Yes. Lovely, isn’t it?
I’ve been heavy-crushing on the chevy trend for awhile now. And while I’ve never quilted a day in my life (secret’s out!) this may be just the project to put me in the quilty saddle. It’s an Ab Fab chevron quilt pattern by Marinda Stewart. She’s certainly caught my eye with this one.
And speaking of trends,
“Sometimes — okay MANY times – I find that I am ahead of my time when it comes to design. I suppose I must have an innate knack for spotting a hot trend way before it’s even a trend, or perhaps it’s because I have the attention span of a dead flashlight battery and get bored easily – or more accurately it’s probably both.” -Mark Hordyszynski
