I will admit that I have been putting off these posts because there is just so much to write about! The folks at Robert Kaufman had tons of new stuff to show at market and were very excited to share it all.
Kaufman was also showing a second Suzy Ultman collection, Critter Community. Reminds me of Charley Harper‘s animal prints, which I love.
Here is the Tree of Life collection by Sapna Shah, which comes on super soft cotton flannel and includes a nice large tree panel print.
Darlene Zimmerman‘s new 1930s collection is inspired by Alice in Wonderland.
Some gorgeous black and white animal prints by Sue Coccia called Animal Spirits. I thought it would be a neat kid’s craft project to color these in with fabric markers.
In addition to their prints, Kaufman also has an interesting selection of solids and wovens.
There are some new colors in the Essex cotton/linen:
Kona Colorworks by Patrick Lose has some awesome woven ginghams, stripes, and plaids.
The Mad for Madras collection contains patchwork madras patterns that are two layers, similar in feel to double gauze, but with more body.
Kaufman also has some new licensed collections coming out, including Dr. Suess’s The Lorax. (How can you not love the Lorax — he speaks for the trees!) The Lorax will be avail for shops to order in July, and will be shipping in January 2012.
[Disclosure: The folks at Robert Kaufman generously provided fabric to me for the Block Party book and for a giveaway at the Block Party schoolhouse, but I did not receive anything of value from Robert Kaufman in exchange for writing this post.]
