Fall Quilt Market 2011: Robert Kaufman – Marie Perkins

If you read True Up you probably also read Print & Pattern by bowie style. But you may not know that bowie style’s real name is Marie Perkins, and that she also runs her own surface design studio called Inkjet Designs¬†(here’s her blog, another must-read).¬†Some of the most exciting news for me to come out of this quilt market is that Marie has not one but five collections coming out with Robert Kaufman next year.

Sorry for all the shadows. I think I was leaning in too closely because I wanted to hug everything! First up, Happy Home:

To Market To Market is all simple fruit and veggies.


The mini collection is called Cheers. There’s not too many alcohol themed collections out there … I love it!


Later in Spring-Summer 2012 will be City Centre and Roar!

P.S., I recently bought Marie’s new book, Print & Pattern 2. It’s a must-have for anyone interested in surface pattern design.
