Fall Quilt Market 2009: Anna Maria Horner

I can’t tell you how excited I am about Anna Maria Horner‘s new collections for FreeSpirit: Little Folks cotton voile (which I heard pronounced “voy-ul” more often than not — I hereby decree you can use that or the Frenchier “vwall”), Little Folks flannel, Little Folks dobby dots, and last-but-not-least, Little Folks oilcloth. I’m excited [...]

FreeSpirit Apparel Fabrics

FreeSpirit is taking their “lifestyle fabrics” branding seriously. Later this year we can look forward to a number of apparel fabric collections from new and established designers, and I couldn’t be more excited.

Interview: Anna Maria Horner on Good Folks

Fabric Hookups

I’ve received a few queries from people looking for recently released fabrics. I’m going to do the lazyweb hive-mind thing and turn the questions over to you! Denyse Schmidt’s County Fair is beginning to arrive in shops … Lisa is looking for the “Promenade Patchwork” cheater cloth and finding it’s already sold out everywhere she [...]

Anna Maria Horner: Garden Party

Everyone has gone crazy over Anna Maria Horner’s Drawing Room line of home decor-weight fabrics. Right on its heels is the quilting-weight line Garden Party, in signature vibrant Anna Maria style. She just keeps outdoing herself, don’t you think? I love how she makes traditional florals look very un-shabby chic, and the genius of her [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2008 Reports, Part III

Chickpea Sewing Studio has a Flickr set on Quilt Market. I really like American Jane. Kathy of Pink Chalk Studio is sharing lots of juicy booth shots. Lizzyhouse‘s report is a love song to Portland. I can relate. Myrinda of Fabric Hound says she saw only 10-15% of the show in the time she was [...]
