Sis Boom / Jennifer Paganelli Challenge!

Yes, BCA had another super fun challenge!

We teamed up with Jennifer over at Sis Boom for this round and we would like to thank her for pairing with us and allowing our ladies tackle to her patterns and fabrics!

A little information about Jennifer, taken from her website...

"As a designer, Jennifer Paganelli finds inspiration in everything. Sis Boom is the inspiration distilled from several lives: her youth in the Great Lakes region of the US, her adolescence spent in the vibrant Caribbean, her college years in traditional New England, followed by career-building in the clamor of New York City.

Today, she and her company are located in the leafy rolling countryside of the Northeast. It’s here where she takes a breath and gets to work everyday. With unusual artistry and a love of texture and a blend of vivid colors, Jennifer uses everyday inspiration, journaling, collaging, and materials from her past to cultivate new ideas and fabric designs.

Jennifer’s connection to all things vintage, including fabrics, forms the basis of her textile work. She clearly identifies with their strong, saturated and lively color. Here, Jennifer invites you to explore her extraordinary world."

Head on over to her website to see everything she has to offer!


Onto the challenge! Our ladies were challenged to use only Sis Boom patterns and with those patterns they had to use only Jennifer Paganelli fabrics! They could use older fabrics or newer ones. Any combination! Let's take a look at what they came up with, shall we?!
