Dear Stella: New Collections

{ Petal Pusher } For their sophomore effort as a new-to-the-scene fabric company, Dear Stella has released a small group of collections before the next big debuts at Spring Quilt Market. Again, they’re bringing both classic and trendy home decor themes and motifs (and some fashion references too) to the quilting world, and I think [...]

Skinny Laminx: Flower Dreams

Skinny LaMinx just released a beautiful new self-produced collection. Flower Dreams is all about florals, of course, and features her signature papercut motifs. The fabrics are screenprinted in South Africa onto an approximately 7 oz/square yard (that’s a medium-heavy weight), 55″ wide cotton-linen blend.

Moda: Made With Love

I had to point out this in-house mini-collection from Moda, Made With Love, in case you hadn’t seen it (they don’t do a lot of in-house print collections!) It’s been out for a little while now, so you fans of text and sewing-themed and retro prints, get it while it lasts. Made With Love was [...]

Kelly Lee-Creel: Storybook Lane

Kelly Lee-Creel (aka Ever Kelly) is the lastest designer to join the growing modern ranks of Andover Fabrics. I met Kelly a few quilt markets ago and through email, her blog, and in person have been following her journey toward her dream of becoming a fabric designer. Her tenacity and talent have finally paid off, [...]

Lotta Jansdotter: Bella

It’s fair to say that Echo by Lotta Jansdotter for Windham Fabrics was one of the major hits of 2011.

Looks like it’ll debut at Spring Quilt Market, and be available in stores in [...]

Liesl of oliver + s recently treated us to a preview of their upcoming collection for Moda. It’s called The Ladies’ Stitching Club. It started as a group of sewing- and embroidery-themed prints, but Liesl said a story started to evolve about one woman’s a dream about a gorgeous blouse. The dream leads to sewing [...]

My Aunt June: The Visual English Alphabet

My Aunt June is Lauren “Kansas City” Hunt, who I got to meet and hang out with at Spring 2010 Quilt Market in Minneapolis. She does a wonderful job taking inventive motifs and rendering them in a rainbow of colors. Her latest print is the Visual English Alphabet, which is actually hand-screenprinted rather than her [...]

Lizzy House: Hello Pilgrim

{ Wanderer Palette } Hello Pilgrim is Lizzy House‘s newest. Most (all?) of her previous collections have been centered on conversational prints, but Hello Pilgrim marks a turn to a more classic assortment of florals and geometrics. Well, there’s butterflies, but butterflies are about as floral as you can get in a novelty motif. These [...]
