The Spring Quilt Market was a wonderful experience and I am delighted to share my observations with the True Up community over the next few weeks! First up is Monaluna, which specializes in 100% organic cottons. The brand debuted two collections: Raaga, which is available next week (early June 2013) and Free Range, which will be available at the end of the month (late June 2013).
Raaga is a sophisticated collection with 12 gorgeous patterns. Each pattern is exciting and unique on its own, but the magic happens when the flowers, peacocks, geometrics and medallions are pieced and paired together. The collection comes in a vibrant, yet feminine color palette of pink, red, green, turquoise and orange. This collection is truly irresistible and is sure to be a favorite!
Free Range was inspired by life on the farm and features fun motifs such as sheep, chickens, farm houses and tractors. There are 11 adorable patterns in this collection, which are perfect for a whimsical sewing project with a little country charm.
For fall, Monaluna is introducing a collection of organic knits, as well as a few new sewing patterns which will showcase knit fabrics. The sewing kits have been very well-received and they already have two new collections in the works.
