New From Quarter Report

fiqcollage

 

There are still a few more companies to cover for Quilt Market, and while those posts are in the works, I thought I’d show you some of the new stuff at Japan’s Quarter Report, including their in-house designs and beautiful lace by Reiko Oka (middle left). I have subscribed to their newsletter and and always get excited when a new one arrives — there is always some mind-blowing new arrival from Marimekko or any of the Scandinavian brands they carry.

Spring Quilt Market 2013: Benartex and Kanvas

kanvasfloralbooth

Sure, Contempo was being unveiled nearby, but in the meanwhile, Benartex’s Kanvas studio has been no slouch, winning the booth award for Maria Kalinowski’s Floral Philosophy. See here is the behind the scenes of their award-winning booth and those amazing tissue paper flowers.

Under the Benartex brand, Jackie Robinson has debuted a new line called He Still Loves Me – a sweet daisy-themed collection no doubt inspired by the “he loves me, he loves me not” game. Kitty Yoshida has also come out with a new collection called Urban Oasis. For holiday 2013, Nancy Halvorsen has a new Christmas line called Ho Ho Ho, Let it Snow.

Last year Benartex introduced their modern and novelty focused studio, Kanvas. This spring, Benartex debuted another new division, Contempo Studio, which will feature more modern and contemporary lines. Contempo’s slogan is “Modern Fabrics, Manhattan Style,” and who better to exemplify that spirit than the multitalented Michele D’Amore? Her debut collection for Contempo is “Cosmopolitan,” in a perfect city palette of yellow (or aqua or lime) and gray. Michele has two other collections for Contempo coming out as well, Dwellings (In Beach House, Town House, and Guest House colorways) and Cachet.

Spring Quilt Market 2013: Timeless Treasures

Timeless Treasures (5)

Timeless Treasures was HUGE!

I could have spent all day looking at the fabric ranges and still not have seen everything.

Thank you to Hayden Lees from Timeless Treasures Public Relations for taking me through everything. I loved your skirt, Hayden, made from “Matilda – Leaves” by Alice Kennedy! Lovely.

I really liked the Mini collection ..

 

Timeless Treasures (14)

And the quirky novelty prints such as Sewing Tools.

There was way to much to look at and I was slightly sidetracked by the men giving out lollipops …

Take a look here for some more info.

Spring Quilt Market 2013: Windham Fabrics

Windham Fabrics (11)

 

Windham Fabrics has lots of great new fabrics coming out.

With a few headline names such as:

 

Windham Fabrics (5)

Windham Fabrics (6)

Heather Ross with her first range with Windham – Briar Rose. It’s Heather’s usual brilliant illustrations with great colour and design, and the quilting weight cotton looked like it would be great to sew anything with — clothes or quilts.

 

 

Windham Fabrics (12)

Windham Fabrics (13)

Windham Fabrics (14)

Carrie Bloomston of Such Designs with her first range with Windham  - Collage. This was my favourite of the show – it has great colours and scale that would match in with many other ranges.

 

Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew fame is also amongst the new Windham designers. Her first range – Wallflower

Windham Fabrics (7)

Julia Rothman with her second range with Windham fabrics – Ride

 

 

Windham Fabrics (4)

Jackie Shapiro of French Bull with her new ranges Raj and Ziggy

 

 

Windham Fabrics (2)

Lotta Jansdotter‘s newest, Glimma

These are just the few that caught my eye . If you’re interested, take a look at Windham’s What’s New page.

Cori Dantini’s range “Beauty Is You” was lovely and I really liked the large panels, I could easily envisage this fussy cut and made in to a great girl’s quilt (young or old). Her next collection is called The Sweet Life.
