Spring Quilt Market 2011: FreeSpirit — George Mendoza, Dena Designs, Nel Whatmore, and Heather Bailey
Let’s keep going, shall we? While I didn’t get all of FreeSpirit‘s new offerings, this covers the last of the the designers-without-booths that I did mange to collect. George Mendoza‘s Color of the Wind is all about the blues, oranges, and purples. FreeSpirit has printed two of the prints in two colorways on their microfleece, which is the softest fleece I have ever felt in my life.
Dena Fishbein of Dena Designs introduced two collections: Taza and Kumari Holiday Garden, out in July. Check out Dena’s full bolt photos of Taza on her blog. Christmas collections were not on my radar for whatever reason, but I loved what I did see.
I neglected to get the ship date for Nel Whatmore‘s Sleeping Beauty, but I imagine that since it’s still on paper we’ll see it in stores towards the end of the summer.
Finally, Heather Bailey introduced a new substrate with Garden District. This heavier weight home dec cotton canvas should be in stores in August.
