Fall Quilt Market 2011: Cloud9 – Michelle Engel Bencsko and Gennine Zlatkis

I think this is true of all the small organic fabric companies, but I think Cloud9 Fabrics, with the caliber of their designs and the breadth of artists they are getting onto fabric, is pushing the industry forward in a big way. The collections they were showing at Market — their current collections as well [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Monaluna

Jennifer Moore was booth-ing it at Quilt Market for the second time for her organic fabric company Monaluna, showing off her recently introduced collections Marin and Anika, the earlier Monaco, and her brand-new collection Taali. I love them all! And I think it’s so cool how she designs distantly different styles for Birch, Robert Kaufman, [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Alexander Henry – Barcelona

Barcelona (and you have to say it with a “th”) was featured in Alexander Henry‘s booth along with Folklorico. It’s a mini collection printed on “super shirting” — a beautiful, drapey, soft, apparel-friendly basecloth that can still easily pass for a quilting cotton. Barcelona comes in four colorways: Fiesta (brights), Bougainvillea (pink and blue), Indigo, [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Lecien – St. Ives by Sarah Fielke

Sarah Fielke was Quilt Market to promote her new book, Quilting From Little Things, and new fabric collection with Lecien, St. Ives, which is inspired by the spirit of growing up in the late 70s-early 80s. The idea behind the book is to learn new quilting techniques in a low-commitment (and quilting-class-friendly) way with doll-sized quilts, then move [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Robert Kaufman – Fiesta by Jennifer Sampou

Jennifer Sampou is back! You may not be familiar with her work if you’re newish to the fabric world. She was creative director at P&B in the 90s, then later became one of Robert Kaufman’s first licensed designers. In 2005 she moved with her family to Mexico and took a break from the design world [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Robert Kaufman – Dr. Seuss

The Dr. Seuss licensed collections have been very successful for Robert Kaufman, so they are continuing to expand the selection. Celebrate Seuss! Is an Seuss all-star collection. I’ve been anticipating the appearance of my favorite Seuss book, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, and here it is! Celebrate Seuss! and The Cat in [...]

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: Lizzy House

{ Lizzy in camouflage against a backdrop of Outfoxed } Clearly people can’t get enough Lizzy House, since she had not-one-not-two-but-three collections showing at Quilt Market! I’m so excited for them all: Outfoxed, already in stores; her Halloween collection (those ghosts! The candy corn triangles!); and Hello Pilgrim, which might not be out till the [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Daisy Janie

Jan Dicintio introduced her third organic collection, Tilly, which is shipping to stores this month. I have always had a thing for the harvest palette of 70s kitchens — I mean, that’s my childhood! It takes me right back to air-popping some ‘corn to setting in for an evening of Bowling for Dollars. And Jan [...]
