Fall Quilt Market 2012: Blend

Blend, the recently introduced division of Anna Griffin Inc., continues to expand their designer roster and impress with a variety of artistic voices. As I said before, my photos don’t do justice to the collections, so I’ve included the company’s promotional images too where available. Everyone who is tired of birds, owls, and deer have [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2012: Anna Griffin

This was my first time meeting the folks at Anna Griffin and their new division Blend firsthand, and I was not only impressed by their current and upcoming collections but also how they presented their brand as a whole.

Spring Quilt Market 2012: Anna Griffin

Anna Griffin brings a diverse array of vintage and antique design styles to life with this season’s new collections.

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Blend Fabrics – Maude Asbury

Maude Asbury may or may not be a real person, but she can make a mean fabric collection or three. Calypso, out now, is an exciting mix of graphic florals and geometrics. By the way, I love Anna Griffin/Blend‘s fabric ladder displays.   Kitchy Kitchen is also out now.   Tinsel is for Christmas 2012 [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Blend Fabrics – Sarah Watts and Jessica Swift

Anna Griffin just launched her own fabric company last fall, and already she’s launched a new division, Blend, featuring licensed artists from around the world of the mostly-modern type.
