Imogen Heath

{ Viaduct and Starling } I saw Imogen Heath’s bedding on Bloesem and was excited to find, after following the link, that she offers fabric yardage of her designs as well. These digitally printed fabrics are printed on a 56″ wide, home dec weight 50/50 cotton/linen blend and are available through Not on the High [...]

STOFLAB

When people explore digital textile printing they tend to gravitate toward conversational prints and splashy florals. Certainly those tend to take advantage of the unlimited color possibilities. In a way simple geometric prints seem “too easy” for digital printing, but hey, if you’re envisioning a print and it’s not out there commercially, it’s digital to [...]

Machine Quilting Practice Panels by Angela Walters

{ Square Chains } Angela Walters, machine-quilter-to-the-stars (and a star herself — she’s like the non-frightening Rachel Zoe of the modern quilting world!), has a new class on Craftsy called Machine Quilting Negative Space. It’s an online, video-based, self-paced, highly rated, and very affordable class. She created these fabric panels for her students to practice [...]

Kalla on Spoonflower

She has made several of her designs available for sale on Spoonflower, including new ones especially for digital printing. You can find them in her etsy shop too. { Bird } { Katsura } { Casanay } { Nest } { Chevron [...]

Teja Williams

I found Teja Williams (teja_jamilla on Spoonflower) by Pinteresting around. She is a freelance surface pattern designer from South Wales, currently living and working in London. These patterns are incredibly skilled and her collections show her talents in a very broad range of styles. I’m envisioning so many of these printed on silk for dresses! Teja also [...]

Spoonflower Color v2.1

Spoonflower recently made an important update to their color management. It was done to expand the range of colors, improve handling of gradients (which means better photographic printing), and to reduce color shifts between computer screens and fabric, and between their different base cloths. On the downside, it means that old color maps need upgrading [...]

Katherine Codega

Last year I was smitten by illustrator/surface pattern designer Katherine Codega‘s Clover Patch print. Since then she’s rounded out the offerings in her Etsy shop with dozens of new prints — focal prints and great, simple coordinates in perfect color palettes. Her shop also features tea towels (including calendar tea towels), and art prints and [...]

The People’s Print

{ Floral Collage Print for The Great British Floral group} Melanie Bowles, author of the excellent Digital Textile Design (which is getting a new edition this fall!) has launched an exciting new project with Dr. Emma Neuberg, founder of the Slow Textile Group and lecturer at the University of the Arts, London. It’s called The People’s Print, [...]

New Heather Ross Prints on Spoonflower

Heather Ross illustrated a sweet kid’s book called Crafty Chloe, written by Kelly DiPuccio. It’s about a girl who decides to make a present for her best friend despite naysaying from her other friends. Heather made another shop on the Martha Stewart Show to promote the book and demonstrate a project, and just like last [...]
