Spring Quilt Market 2012: Alexander Henry – Fashion for Home and New Qualities

For a show that is primarily focused on quilting cottons, Alexander Henry took the opportunity to highlight their home decor weight fabrics. Twitter, Facebook and many a blog were lighting up with photos of this fantastic chair sculpture. The fact that none of the fabrics used were less than three to four years old was rather [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Alexander Henry – Love, Luck, and Liberty

Alexander Henry will addresses some fabrically-underserved holidays in Spring 2012 with Love, Luck, and Liberty — Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, and 4th of July, respectively. What does it say about me that the gray Valentine’s print below reminds me of Rear Window? And that wraps up the AH offerings for Fall and Spring 2012. Which [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Alexander Henry – Monkey’s Bizness and Nicole’s Prints

Now we’re getting into Alexander Henry‘s Big Black Book, which showcases prints that haven’t yet made it to fabric but probably will over the next season. Nicole’s Prints are a fun assortment of themes and motifs, and Monkey’s Bizness is their kid’s line. First, Musing on a Moustache and Where’s My ‘Stache? — hopefully will [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Alexander Henry – Barcelona

Barcelona (and you have to say it with a “th”) was featured in Alexander Henry‘s booth along with Folklorico. It’s a mini collection printed on “super shirting” — a beautiful, drapey, soft, apparel-friendly basecloth that can still easily pass for a quilting cotton. Barcelona comes in four colorways: Fiesta (brights), Bougainvillea (pink and blue), Indigo, [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Alexander Henry – Folklorico

Alexander Henry‘s booth was all about Folklorico, their ongoing Mexico-themed collection (the booth also featured a new collection called Barcelona, which we’ll look at in the next post). Nicole and Phillip told me that Folklorico has always been their “second-bestselling” collection … #1 always rotates, but Folklorico is always a strong second. So I guess [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Alexander Henry – The Ghastlies

Alexander Henry‘s The Ghastlies were a huge hit from the moment they were introduced at Fall Quilt Market 2009. Nicole and Phillip de Leon said that they took on a life of their own — as they and their customers lived with them and created with them for a while, the backstory evolved and their [...]
