Fall Quilt Market 2010 – David Textiles

V&A Collection

This was one of those unexpected surprises that make Market such a treat. David Textiles has never really been on my radar, but their full-page ad in the Market program for their collection of reproductions from the V&A Collection made me drop what I was doing and head straight to their booth. They are reproducing William Morris prints and several iconic midcentury modern prints, though I’m embarrassed to say I can’t identify them myself! Maybe you readers can come to the rescue here …

Now that I look at the photos, I’m not into some of the colorations they chose, but I liked them when I was sitting there so maybe it’s the fault of my own color correcting skills. I do think the more neutral ones are great and they’ll definitely become part of my stash when they’re released in March 2011.

(I meant this photo to show the print up close and in action, but now I realize it reads as a “heaving bosom” shot! I never say this, but, “LOL.”)

And the William Morris:

    Wow. What a fantastic line. I can only cross my fingers and wish for this to be available online. The one with the boats and the town reminds med of the illustrations by Paul Ren√© Gauguin in Norwegian children’s books from the 50′s and 60′s.

  2. Fabulous! and yes I think I agree about the colour, not quite right.

    I’m a suck for William Morris fabrics!

    Whoops…my computer is going slow and I hit enter before I saw what I typed. It should have read. “I’m a sucker for William Morris fabrics.”

    I tried to figure out the designer of the house/seaside print to no avail, but in the process found the designers of some of the other patterns.

    The house line drawing is a fabric design by Hilda Durkin for Heals.
    The trees are a wallpaper design by Shinkichi Tajiri.
    The bookshelf print is a fabric design by Jacqueline Groag for Liberty.
    The bottles are from a Palladio Wallpapers sample book.

    Love the boats and bottles and books and birds! And the city line drawings and… actually the whole line is fantastic. The colours on the exhibition stand photo do look slightly different (more muted) to those in the close-ups so perhaps the camera/ computer decided to put a personal spin on them… Whatever the case, hopefully they’ll be released in the UK through the V&A and I better start saving now because there are so many I like that it will be ruinous on my finances!

    I love William Morris designs and am quite excited that yet another fabric company will produce – or reproduce – some of his designs. Can’t wait…

    L.O.V.E the fabric with trees…and the others as well, but that one pops out for me.

  10. [...] hard for lot of what I’ve seen (helloooo Alexander Henry holidays, Tammis Keefe Tribute, and David Textiles for the V&A), but I also got a delicious up-close-and-personal preview of one of Moda’s new lines. [...]
