Fall Quilt Market 2009: FreeSpirit Precut Packs

Freespirit/Westminster is now offering fat quarter packs of their upcoming lines. More things that I wanted to scoop up and run away with even if it meant being banned from Quilt Market forever. Hi Hope Valley! Hi Love! Hi Nicey Jane! Hi California Dreamin’! Hi Kaffe! Someday, you will all be mine. Related posts: Fall [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2009: Blank Quilting

Although I love meeting the popular contemporary designers, seeing their work up close, and (hopefully) absorbing some of their talent just by standing near them, one of my favorite parts of Quilt Market last year was making discoveries at more traditional and lesser known (to our market segment, anyway) manufacturers’ booths. And alas, I didn’t [...]

Liberty Autumn-Winter 2009-10

I featured the Liberty Art Collection on Friday, now here are some of my favorites of Liberty of London’s most recent season of Tana Lawn prints. I’m just about finished up sewing my first-ever dress so I’m paying a lot more attention to garment fabrics. I tend to wear darker colors so the predominance of [...]

Preview: Love by Amy Butler

Amy Butler has just officially announced her new collection, Love, and posted preview images on her website. Various prints will be available on quilting weight cotton, home dec weight cotton, flannel, laminate, and double-faced quilted fabrics. The variety of basecloths is very exciting, as is the mixture of styles and motifs in this collection. I’m [...]

Momo: Odyssea

Odyssea is the newest collection by MoMo for Moda, whose popular Wonderland was released this past Spring. Like Wonderland, some of the main prints will also be offered on 54″ wide twill — and this time, a coated twill (like oilcloth, I’m guessing) will be added to the mix. This collection retains MoMo’s signature style, [...]

Interview: Tula Pink on Hushabye

Ladies and gentlemen, Tula Pink. You might know her from her debut line, Full Moon Forest, full of hidden animals and delightfully, trickily ornate designs — or maybe you’re more familiar with her other lines: Neptune, Flutterby, or Nest. Tula Pink has a die-hard fandom and it’s not hard to see why, when she shares [...]

Caroline Gavin: Wild Thyme

P&B Textiles has contracted with the amazing Lilla Rogers Studio to put some of their artists onto fabric. The first release will be Caroline Gavin‘s Wild Thyme, due in stores this October. My favorite from this collection is the pink version of the focus print, shown in closer detail below. Keep your eye on P&B [...]

Preview: Tanya Whelan’s Dolce

Another preview of upcoming FreeSpirit collections today: Tanya Whelan‘s Dolce. Tanya snapped these images in transit to her new home in Belgium (le sigh! doesn’t that sound wonderful?). This collection is a significant departure from her more traditional floral collections. It brings to my mind a 20s Hollywood starlets’ dressing room, art deco vanities, silk [...]

Preview: Denyse Schmidt’s Hope Valley

Hooray! As hinted at earlier this year, Denyse Schmidt‘s upcoming collection for FreeSpirit, Hope Valley, is inspired by homesteading, fresh starts, and pioneering. I just love everything about this collection: the colors, the vintage feel, the sweet, happy florals and simple small-scale coordinates. The images above from Denyse give you a good idea of the [...]
