Simple life and style are the trademarks of Bonnie from Going Home to Roost. She has taken her love of simplicity and has presented it in her lovely fabric lines for Art Gallery Fabrics and her new Aurifil thread collection Sweet as Honey.
Bonnie was kind enough to answer a few questions so we can get to know more about where she found her inspiration and most importantly, her favorite #auricolor!
What or who inspired you to want to learn to sew or design?
I’m grateful that most all of the women in my family have sewn. My great grandmother made quilts, my grandmother worked in a fabric shop, my mom owns a creative sewing center. They have all inspired me deeply and they are the reason I love to design fabric today!
If you could paint a room an #Auricolor color, what would it be?
I think I would have to go with color #2805. It’s perfectly mint and the color I use to accent with in our home already. I love how fresh and pretty it is!
Do you participate in your local quilt guild or another sewing group?
I have spoken at a couple of local quilt guilds and love to visit our local quilt shops. We recently did a ‘southeast tour’ for my fabric line, Sweet as Honey, and had so much fun meeting and greeting with all of the local shops. The tour was full of projects and demos and new friends!
If you were not sewing/designing, what profession would you choose?
I love designing so much, it’s hard to imagine doing anything else! I think if I were to ever do anything else, it would have to be organic gardening for both flowers and vegetables. It’s my favorite hobby!
What do you dream of making someday?
I’d like to become a better seamstress and make most of the clothes for myself and my children.
