Fall Quilt Market 2009: Lecien Part II

Here’s more from Lecien. (Part 1 is here, in case you missed it.) More charming vintage reproduction and vintage-inspired collections: The much-anticipated Grandmother’s Flower Garden from Rosalie Quinlan. Kicking myself for not getting a quilt picture, but fortunately GFG is well documented on Rosalie’s blog and on Ever Kelly. Ms. Pam Kitty Morning made one [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2009: Lecien

Nireko Ohira, native of Japan who has worked at Lecien‘s office in California for several years, kindly showed me the dozens of lines the company is offering now. Everything I have pictured here today is currently delivering or is now available in shops. There was so much of it that I have to break it [...]

Liberty Autumn-Winter 2009-10

I featured the Liberty Art Collection on Friday, now here are some of my favorites of Liberty of London’s most recent season of Tana Lawn prints.

Japanese Fabric of the Week: New Echino

Thanks to Kelly at Superbuzzy, we’re getting a preview of the newest Echino fabrics by designer Etsuko Furuya.

Momo: Odyssea

Odyssea is the newest collection by MoMo for Moda, whose popular Wonderland was released this past Spring. Like Wonderland, some of the main prints will also be offered on 54″ wide twill — and this time, a coated twill (like oilcloth, I’m guessing) will be added to the mix. This collection retains MoMo’s signature style, [...]

Interview: Tula Pink on Hushabye

Ladies and gentlemen, Tula Pink. You might know her from her debut line, Full Moon Forest, full of hidden animals and delightfully, trickily ornate designs — or maybe you’re more familiar with her other lines: Neptune, Flutterby, or Nest. Tula Pink has a die-hard fandom and it’s not hard to see why, when she shares [...]
