Alexander Henry: Willow

Have you noticed that I’m keeping up with Alexander Henry better lately? Well, I’m proud of myself for it, anyway. It hasn’t been for lack of wanting, but since they don’t do things quite like the other companies — all their collections are in-house and they often release sub-collections under the umbrella of larger, ongoing collections (like Fashionista, Monkey’s Bizness, and Nicole’s Prints), it’s a bit harder to pin their new releases down. But I’ve got it all figured out now.

The very Scandi-psychedelic Willow joins the famous spotted owls and personal favorites April Showers and Calico Cat in AH’s In the Kitchen collection. Of course I’m loving it, and thinking of how Willow Grove (above) could look like a half-dozen different fabrics if cut up and pieced into a quilt. More print for your money in these tough economic times.

Thanks to Fabricworm‘s newsletter for the heads-up. Cynthia is carrying the whole collectionthis image gives you a much better idea of the prints’ scales.

    I’ve wondered how they are able to crank out so many collections. Do you know? Or does their website show their design team?

    Oh my gosh.. Loving these! I think I just drooled on my keyboard! ;)

    So do all of these work together color-wise?

    I love these but hell would have to freeze over before my local quilt shop got anything like this in. I always have to buy online and it’s so hard to tell if fabrics match.

    Alexander Henry is one of my favorites. I like how he also does the same print in different sizes.

    Lovely selections – love the red willow-wren – it always surprises me how much difference a colourway can make to the mood of a print, and also how wrongly I can guess at the scale – and what a huge difference that makes too!!

    I love the first featured design – a lovely nod to the 1970′s!
