Echino Fall 2012

Some lost photos from Quilt Market! How I could let Echino fall through the cracks, I don’t know, but we’re all here together now and that’s what’s important. This season Etsuko Furuya is simultaneously releasing the latest iteration of her nature-themed collection AND more Ni-co, which is the more simple, graphic transportation-and-objects collection. We’re also [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2012: Birch Fabrics

{ images courtesy Birch Fabrics } Birch Fabrics is growing by leaps and bounds. Go Birch Go! Coming this season they’re expanding into new substrates and bringing on new licensees, including a very huge name. Jay-Cyn Designs will have three variations on a theme in three fabric types: organic quilting cotton, organic cotton canvas, and [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2012: Kaffe Fassett

Kaffe Fassett is still my favourite fabric designer. For me his stuff just never gets old. I would never use it all together in one quilt but using small pieces here and there and mixing them with the other things in my stash makes my quilts sparkle. Enough of my gushing – his fall release range [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2012: Amy and David Butler

Amy Butler‘s Alchemy collection is very complex! At 46 pieces you could be forgiven to not keep them all straight, but they’re divided up further into a lot of different substrates.   The Studio Collection contains 12 different prints in different fabrics, including rayon challis, sateen bliss, voile, velveteen, laminates, and linen rayon, aimed at [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2012: Anna Maria Horner

Hard to know where to look at Anna Maria Horner‘s booth – there was so much to see and it’s all so pretty. Field Study, previously released in quilting cotton and now with rayon challis, voile, and velveteens joining the range, was made up in clothing, quilt, and bag patterns.   Anna’s Needleworks embroidery and tapestry collection patterns and kits [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2012: Tula Pink

As usual, a visit to the Westminster/Freespirit/Moda booth at Market did not disappoint. There is a lot of ground to cover these days – Amy has already told you about some Freespirit designers and surrounds, I’m here to cover the big guns, starting with Tula Pink. Tula Pink’s new range, Saltwater, is maritime themed and features [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2012: Kei

Here’s what’s coming from Kei, the originators of the famous honeycomb dot. They have a beautiful retro-modern take on traditional Japanese motifs with the Kyoto Story collection. Their other series are loose collections of one-offs sharing a vaguely similar style — of course I go right for the vintage repros, but I’ll also be looking [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2012: Yuwa

{ Maybe my absolute favorite novelty print at this market, or ever? – this is Anyan’s second collection for the Yuwa Live Life line — the first, Cotorienne, was also a favorite last spring.  } Can I just please get a pneumatic tube installed that runs straight between Yuwa and my house? I love everything they do [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2012: Stof

Stof has been a major supplier of fabric to Europe since the 1970s. Based in Denmark, they recently started exporting to the US. Their Pure collection shares some obviously Scandinavian DNA with Lotta Jansdotter’s last two collections. The colors are bright in a classic kind of way – check out the navy and red:    [...]
