Spring Quilt Market Sneak Peeks: Lantern Bloom by Laura Gunn





Lantern Bloom is the debut collection from Laura Gunn for Michael Miller. Laura is from an incredibly talented, artistic, and colorful family — her mother is Elinor Peace Bailey and her sister-in-law is Heather Bailey. It’s very refreshing to see these handpainted designs coming on the computer-graphics-dominated contemporary fabric scene. I’m loving the saturated colors and organic shapes.

See the fabrics in action on Laura’s blog, Paint in My Hair.

    Hi- I got to meet you at market- I was assisting Jennifer Paganelli-it was a flood of people, so don’t feel bad if you don’t remember. Anyway- I left market most inspired by Laura Gunn’s painterly almost haunting fabric. I’m getting it NOW! Plus- she is the sweetest prettiest little thing!
