Spring Quilt Market 2011: Rowan – Melissa White

Melissa White-- Fairlyte Garden

You might have already seen Melissa White‘s line in your local quilt store, as it started shipping earlier this year. Fairlyte Garden is her first collection with Westminster/Rowan but her background in hand painted interiors, textiles, and frescoes makes it look like an effortless transition. The palette, is again, distinctly Westminster with five prints in four colorways (three pictured) and takes its inspiration from woodblock printing and Japanese textiles.

Her second collection is due out later this year and is called Misaki. It’s a larger collection of at least eight prints in four colorways and even on paper, it’s not hard to see how rich and dynamic these prints will be on fabric.

    I bought some of this. I think it is super interesting, albeit a little puzzling. Mexico? Hawaii? Japan? I have a feeling Melissa White is a traveler!
