Fall Quilt Market 2001: Timeless Treasures — Computer Geek Fabrics

Timeless Treasures is starting to corner the market in computer geek fabrics. I think everyone loved Smirk by Kyla May, with its Pac Man and Space Invaders prints. Next up, we have Mechanical Genius by Mo Bedell.   And, a couple cute novelty mini-collections: Computer (an in-house collection) Gumball Machines. OK, maybe not geeky per [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Timeless Treasures – Alice Kennedy

I was also thrilled to meet Alice Kennedy for the first time. I’ve remarked in amazement before about how prolific she is with the gorgeous fabric collections. I learned she works full-time for Timeless Treasures. Aaahhh … the pieces are all coming together for me now! Alice has two new collections: Lemon Grove and Orange Crush. [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Timeless Treasures – Monica Lee

It is the way of Quilt Market chaos — there are online friends you can’t wait to meet, and you make best-laid plans over email, then manage to never so much as lay eyes on them over the course of the weekend. But then there’s always a person who you run into again and again [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Alexander Henry – Love, Luck, and Liberty

Alexander Henry will addresses some fabrically-underserved holidays in Spring 2012 with Love, Luck, and Liberty — Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, and 4th of July, respectively. What does it say about me that the gray Valentine’s print below reminds me of Rear Window? And that wraps up the AH offerings for Fall and Spring 2012. Which [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Alexander Henry – Metro

I’m loving Metro — it’s a dreamy, jazzy, Beatnik-era cartoon vision of fast-paced city life.

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Alexander Henry – Monkey’s Bizness and Nicole’s Prints

Now we’re getting into Alexander Henry‘s Big Black Book, which showcases prints that haven’t yet made it to fabric but probably will over the next season. Nicole’s Prints are a fun assortment of themes and motifs, and Monkey’s Bizness is their kid’s line. First, Musing on a Moustache and Where’s My ‘Stache? — hopefully will [...]

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: Alexander Henry – Folklorico

Alexander Henry‘s booth was all about Folklorico, their ongoing Mexico-themed collection (the booth also featured a new collection called Barcelona, which we’ll look at in the next post). Nicole and Phillip told me that Folklorico has always been their “second-bestselling” collection … #1 always rotates, but Folklorico is always a strong second. So I guess [...]
