Fall Quilt Market 2010 – Timeless Treasures – More (Mostly Kids’) Novelties

Timeless Treasures - Smirk by Kyla May

Kyla May is an Australian artist with several popular character brands, some of which have their own animated TV series in Australia. Her first brand, Smirk, “is a quirky, sassy collection of characters that combine the simplicity of child drawn stick figures with adult tongue in cheek with and intelligence,” according to her website. It started out as a greeting card range a decade ago and has grown into a “non-stop licensing juggernaut.” And what is any licensing juggernaut without a fabric collection? Even if you’re not familiar with the characters, I think these vintage video game-inspired prints will make nerds worldwide go nuts.

The prints below are still only on paper, and I took the shots from a binder, hence the shine. I could see these being on laminate cottons, but I think they will only be regular quilting fabrics.

Timeless Treasures is perhaps best known for their one-off novelty prints and novelty mini-collections, so I’ll leave you with several of those!
