Fall Quilt Market 2012: Alexander Henry

Alexander Henry‘s booth centered around their new collection Somerville, which is arriving in stores now. I didn’t get to hear about the inspiration behind it, but the booth (to me) was like an eccentric retiree fantasyland. Somerville Study, the bookshelf print, is supported by florals that seem to combine a mixture of cultural and historical influences (AH’s speciality!). The booth also had an element of 70s needlework and setabouts, and faux birds in ornate cages. I’d love to hear your interpretation! Somerville comes in three colorways and is printed on AH’s super shirting.

    Well, AH isn’t afraid to go all out and really COMMIT to a vision, even if that vision is flat-out eye searing. I love some of the newer home dec prints, especially the calm, large scale Dandy*Lion and the dense floral Keely. Really cool to see Keely in 4 very, very different colorways, including a gray scale.

    Alexander Henry never disappoints me! In this new world of fabric creation that often moves a little too fast for me, I always love AH lines! This one is no exception, I LOVE the bookshelves. Can’t wait to get some of this. I wish I had a “study” in my home. It would be a perfect for that.
