Suzy Ultman: Handle With Care

I love everything Suzy Ultman does — her latest for Robert Kaufman might be summed up as “airmail and friends.” It comes in a bright and more muted “Garden” palette. This stack photo is courtesy Fabricworm, who has the whole collection. Related posts: Suzy Ultman: Critter Community Spring Quilt Market 2012: Suzy Ultman, Mod Green [...]

New From Marimekko

{ Ikkunaprinssi by Erja Hirvi }   The checkout girl at Home Depot saw my son’s Angry Birds shirt and she said “the most famous thing to come out of Finland!” I didn’t know that! She said, “and Fiskars scissors.” I didn’t know that either! I said, “And Marimekko!,” and she said, “oh yeah”! And so it was [...]

We have already learned that the ever-growing Cloud9 Fabrics has brought Rashida Coleman-Hale, Rob Bancroft, Eleanor Grosch, Steffie Brocoli, and Lisa Congdon onto their designer roster for Fall [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2012: Blend Fabrics

This week I’m going to show the latter half of Lauren‘s quilt market photos — don’t think of it as late, think of it as spreading out the goodness over a longer period of time!

Spring Quilt Market 2012: Windham Fabrics

Known for more traditional designs and motifs, Windham scored the golden ticket when they signed Lotta Jansdotter. Her first licensed collection, Echo, was a hit and it’s rather safe to say that Bella, her second collection, will be no different. The colors – tangy orange, rich indigo, aqua, yellow and a warm gray – combine [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2012: FreeSpirit/Westminster – Denyse Schmidt

Like a lot of other “Modern Quilter” hoodlums, the first quilting book I ever owned was Denyse Schmidt Quilts. It completely shaped the way I make quilts, so of course I was a bit intimidated to meet The Denyse Schmidt! Denyse’s new fabric collection Chicopee (arriving in stores third quarter of 2012!) is bright and [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2012: Robert Kaufman – Story Time!

Last but absolutely not least, two storybook-themed collections introduced by Robert Kaufman this season. The next iteration of the ongoing Dr. Seuss fabrics will be Oh The Places You’ll Go! The wonderful Darlene Zimmerman has Mother’s Melodies, centered around a vintage nursery rhyme book (complete with panel print) and supported by lots of sweet and [...]
