Fall Quilt Market 2011: Clothworks – Penguin & Fish

Alyssa Thomas of Penguin & Fish was at Quilt Market spreading the embroidery love, celebrating the recent arrival of her debut organic fabric collection Safari Sweet, and previewing her next collection with Clothworks, Picnic Pals Organic. I can see this going older or younger depending on the combination of prints, and all together it’s a [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Anna Griffin

Let’s not forget about Anna Griffin‘s fabrics in the excitement over Blend. Honoka, meaning “harmony flower,” is “an elegant collection of antique Asian patterns and original Japanese silk screen prints.

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Blend Fabrics – Maude Asbury

Maude Asbury may or may not be a real person, but she can make a mean fabric collection or three. Calypso, out now, is an exciting mix of graphic florals and geometrics.

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Cloud 9 – Happy Drawing by Ed Emberley

In the first post I mentioned how Cloud9 is growing. Not only are they moving in to bona fide headquarters soon, they have a new partnership with the legendary artist Ed Emberley. He formed (at least) an entire generation of artists with his drawing books, so I can’t be more excited to see him on [...]

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, [...]
