Fall Quilt Market 2012: Riley Blake Designs – Emily Taylor

Emily Taylor was in Houston displaying her new collection, Avignon, for Riley Blake Designs. You’d never guess that this was Emily’s first Quilt Market booth, as every detail was just perfect. Avignon is a bright and cheery collection showcasing Emily’s signature style of paisleys, detailed florals, and damasks in an eye catching color palette of teal, [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2012: Liberty Lifestyle

One of the most anticipated collections (okay, at least for me) at Spring Market was the first ever Liberty of London Lifestyle collection. Liberty has long been known for its impeccable designs and amazing Tana Lawns, among other basecloths. The Liberty Lifestyle line is proving to be a similar quality in midweight – one of [...]

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. Everyone looked professional in sharp black dresses, their marketing materials are stunning, and I think there’s something to be [...]

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: Robert Kaufman – Florals

Finally, from Robert Kaufman this upcoming season, the floral collections. Above, Genevieve’s Garden — white pigment-printed designs on a cream cotton cloth, outlined in black or red. The effect is really light and delicate — seek these out to see and touch in person if you can!     Fancy Flight Nancy Mims of Mod Green [...]
