Spring Quilt Market 2013: Art Gallery Fabrics – Leah Duncan

One of my favorite collections at the Spring Market was Tule, by Leah Duncan. This collection, which was inspired by the vast Nevada landscape, consists of ten patterns in two color stories: Nevada Sun and Arizona Sky. The collection is a modern and energetic take on traditional folk florals, geometrics and textures. Luckily we will [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2013: Art Gallery Fabrics – Angela Walters

The collection consists of nine unique patterns and is available in two soothing colorways: [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2013: Yuwa and Kei

Distributed by the same company, Yuwa and Kei both have an unassuming presence at market. A small booth, no frills; just letting the fabrics speak for themselves. I think that is why a lot of the Amazing goes under the radar. Sleeper hits you might say. A playful cat and bird, ballerinas, captivating Liberty-esque florals [...]
