Creative Thursday: Locally Grown

I’m so charmed by Locally Grown by Creative Thursday for Andover. The two colorways are Neutral and the vintage-kitchen-inspired Kitsch. It started with family members’ search for the perfect chicken fabric, and grew from the inspiration of urban gardening and farmer’s markets.  It’s in stores now.     { photos courtesy of Creative Thursday - thanks [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2012: Modern Quilt Studio

Weeks Ringle tag-teamed with her husband Bill Kerr this Market. Bill talked about the modern quilting movement to a standing-room-only crowd at schoolhouse (yeah!), then Weeks took the bulk of the booth-staffing through Market and into Festival. The recently rechristened Modern Quilt Studio booth showcased their distinct and cerebral take on modern quilting, as well [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2012: Andover Fabrics – Ever Kelly

Ever Kelly, aka Kelly Lee-Creel, made her big debut with Andover at Spring Quilt Market with a booth for her collection Storybook Lane. You can make a whole world with her craft panel print, and the regular scale prints are just as captivating. Her Falling Star Quilt (pattern now available, amongst others!) shows off the palette so [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2012: Andover Fabrics

Andover is becoming a major player on the contemporary/modern scene — they’re one of the small handful of companies who is going to be exhibiting at Quiltcon early next year, so that should tell you something!  Here’s what we got to see at Spring Quilt Market, and we know there’s lots more excitement to come. First up, once-Austinite, [...]

Kelly Lee-Creel: Storybook Lane

Kelly Lee-Creel (aka Ever Kelly) is the lastest designer to join the growing modern ranks of Andover Fabrics. I met Kelly a few quilt markets ago and through email, her blog, and in person have been following her journey toward her dream of becoming a fabric designer. Her tenacity and talent have finally paid off, [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Andover – Thomas Knauer

I finally got to meet Thomas Knauer at Quilt Market and he is a really great fellow. He impressed the crowds at schoolhouse not only with his public speaking skills (he is a former professor, remember?) but also with the stories behind the three collections he had showing with Andover. AND the great quilts and [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Andover – Meet the Gang by Creative Thursday

Meet the Gang is Marisa Haedike’s first fabric collection. Marisa is the powerhouse behind Creative Thursday — she paints, illustrates, designs, embroiders, podcasts, blogs, and runs workshops and e-courses. She originally set aside Thursdays for being creative when she worked a 9-5job, and now she gets to be creative full-time. The collection — in stores [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Andover — Mary Engelbreit

This new collection from popular artist/designer Mary Engelbreit is not at all what you’d expect from her, so I thought you’d all like to see it! I also failed to get the name on this one (and the release date — sorry!) but, again, if anyone knows please leave a comment. Related posts: Fall Quilt [...]
