Lucy Morey of Hot Scott Patterns is the designer of the Sunset Beach collection. It is a fun and fabulous line that is great for making special things for trendy boys and girls. The blues, browns and oranges are very popular now with the boy crowd. The surfboards are oh so cool. If you know anything about designing fabric, you know that a collection can take a long time from drawing to actual fabric on the bolt. A designer's job is to relay the latest trends in a timely manner. It's not always an easy feat and timing is everything in the design industry. Sometimes the forecasting of trends can lend itself to a bit of uncertainly from somewhere along the line from the designer all the way to the quilt shop. So how do you know if you're going to have a hit on your hands? You don't. However, when you hit the right spot, it feels great!

Lucy recently wrote about her experience with personal validation with the Sunset Beach line. You can read the post in its entirety here. She gave a great and honest view of a designer's perspective of the ups and downs of a career in textile design. What we're especially proud of in this article is the fact that her vision for Sunset Beach was validated by a big brand such as Pottery Barn Kids. What a great feeling and to Lucy, thank you for designing Sunset Beach!
Come back next week for a peak at what Lucy's making with her fabric! Let us know what you think about this fun collection!
