Spring Quilt Market 2013: Alexander Henry

I was so excited to visit the Alexander Henry booth at Quilt Market and it did not disappoint! Their booth was colorful and creative, just like their amazing collection of fabrics. The focus of their booth was a fun new collection called Everyday Eden. The walls of the booth were covered with patchwork shapes in [...]

Blije Olifantje

I’ve thought before that it would be a great (and different) concept for a fabric shop to hoard fabric until it is sold out everywhere else, and only then put that stock up for sale. It’d be extremely difficult to pull that off without a crystal ball, though. Somehow, Blije Olifanje (Happy Elephant) on Etsy [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2012: More Alexander Henry

Here’s what else Alexander Henry has coming now through Spring 2013. Africa captures my favorite color story at the moment – burgundy, bright pink, rust, and mustard. I love their interpretation of African textiles. I also think that zebras may very well be a new Hot Animal, maybe having to do with the film version of Life [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2012: Alexander Henry

Alexander Henry‘s booth centered around their new collection Somerville, which is arriving in stores now. I didn’t get to hear about the inspiration behind it, but the booth (to me) was like an eccentric retiree fantasyland. Somerville Study, the bookshelf print, is supported by florals that seem to combine a mixture of cultural and historical [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2012: Bring out your ‘stache!

Seen any good mustaches lately? If you haven’t, just wait until the end of the month. November is MOVEMBER, the month where facial hair sprouts in support of awareness of men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancers. The gentlemen grow their mustaches for thirty days, and the ladies gamely smile though itchy smooches. One can [...]

Alexander Henry: Olympia

Alexander Henry‘s new collection Olympia is not about the Olympics exactly, but it seemed a propos to show it to you during the games. Some of the prints, including the trippy-chevrons-with-transparency Tropolis, are printed on Super Shirting, AH’s newish super-soft, drapey plain weave cotton that will work for apparel or quilting. Pink Chalk Fabrics has [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2012: Alexander Henry – Kid’s Collections

The nautical trend has not passed Alexander Henry by, but here it’s truly focused on some of the funnest pirates at sea you can find. Grab an eye patch, a peg leg and maybe a sword and have some fun with Pirate Island.             We’re rather in love with fairytales, or at least, they [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2012: Alexander Henry – Holiday

The next round of Alexander Henry holiday/seasonal collections include some beefcake for Valentine’s Day AND Christmas, a bright bold large-scale Christmas damask, a winter version of It’s a Small World complete with a snowman, and Halloween cuteness via Gwendolyn the Good Witch and kiddo trick-or-treaters.                  { Keli Faw is the [...]
