Project Selvage Winner!

Houston, Texas-based designer Patty Sloniger is Michael Miller‘s newest fabric designer! Her collection Backyard Babies won the hotly contested Project Selvage contest. I was won over by her charming coordinates. I’m looking forward to seeing it and the girl version when it’s introduced at Fall Quilt Market later this year.

Clover Patch by Katherine Codega

Katherine Codega, who goes under the name kccrochet on Etsy, is a Boston, MA-based illustrator who offers letterpress prints and bookmarks with her illustrations of classic authors (Edgar Allen Poe, Jane Austen, Virginia Woolf, and several others). She also has this lovely Spoonflower-produced fabric for sale, called Clover Patch. Wish I’d found it a few [...]

Project Selvage Finalists

Spoonflower has profiles of each of the 10 finalists in Michael Miller‘s Project Selvage (full disclosure: MM/Project Selvage is a sponsor of the site). I loved hearing about everyone’s thought processes, experience, and inspirations. These 10 are now hard at work on rounding out their collections (of six prints total), which will be up on [...]

Hanna Ruusulampi

{ Folklore Fish interlock knit for Ikasyr } I found Finnish designer Hanna Ruusulampi through Spoonflower, which led me not only to her amazing online portfolio (see English version of the fabric portfolio here) but also to a treasure trove of Finnish fabric shops. Hanna designed the interlock knit design Folklore Fish for the shop/mini-manufacturer [...]

Betz’ fabrics are printed in the U.S. on an off-white, hemp-cotton blend canvas basecloth, and uses nontoxic [...]

Her first collection, the Woodland Collection, is available for sale on Spoonflower. These are just too gorgeous for words, right? She’s giving away a fat [...]

Pixel Fabrics on Spoonflower

Pixelated Paisley by tinornament Keen observers may have noticed that I have a thing for pixelly designs, whether they pre-date the computer age and are meant to evoke cross-stitch or knitting patterns, or are meant to evoke screen graphics. Or maybe both. Digital textile printing and pixels are a natural pair … here are some [...]

Jill Bliss Fabrics

{ The Mossrock } I could look at Jill Bliss‘ work all day, so I was very excited to learn that she is now offering the fabrics she uses for her notebook covers and wallets as yardage. Fabrics are digitally printed onto quilting-weight cotton. I love that the names all start with “the,” hinting that [...]

Oliver + S Little Things to Sew Fabrics

Liesl Gibson had a genius idea for her debut book Oliver + S Little Things to Sew. Sewing books are written, the projects in it sewn up and photographed, around a year before the book’s release. If the projects are sewn up in traditionally manufactured fabrics, those fabrics are typically out-of-print by the time the [...]
