Fall Quilt Market 2012: Andover Fabrics Part I

Lucky Penny Quilt by Alison Glass, Quilted by Lisa Sipes }

Over the past several years, Andover has been making a name for themselves on the modern scene by offering fabrics with a fresh perspective, and they did not disappoint this time around. Andover unveiled three new collections this year at Fall Market: Lucky Penny by Alison Glass, Asbury by Thomas Knauer, and Constellations by Lizzy House.

Lucky Penny is a jewel-toned collection of exotic florals and architectural prints, reminding one of a trip to a beautiful old city.  It comes in three colorways, Morning, Noon, and Night, with a large-scale print and accompanying coordinates. Mural is the showstopping pattern in this collection, while the simpler Bike Path coordinate prints are sure to become favorites. Lucky Penny will be available any day now.

Asbury is a nostalgic look at designer Thomas Knauer’s childhood dreams of the Asbury Park, NJ boardwalk.  It features ice cream cones, bowling pins, bumper cars, and other amusement park findings in a surreal, dream-like color palette.  Asbury features a cheater fabric in each colorway, as well as a fun text print.  Asbury will be available in December.

Finally, Constellations is the much anticipated new collection by Andover’s (and possibly Quilt Market’s) youngest designer, Lizzy House.  Constellations comes in three colorways featuring Lizzy’s signature foxes and is accompanied by new colors of her beloved Pearl Bracelets print to coordinate. Constellations will be available in December.
