Spring Quilt Market 2013: Newcastle

Longtime fabric designer Hoodie Crescent recently took the role of art director at Newcastle Fabrics and her influence really shows. She shared her market photos with me for this post — thanks very much, Hoodie! Maybe the biggest news is that designer/author/Quiltcon Best-in-Show winner Victoria Findlay Wolfe  will make her debut as a fabric designer with Newcastle. The [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2012: Newcastle Fabrics

Newcastle Fabrics is a relatively new fabric company, having been in business for about two years now.  Right before Quilt Market, it was announced that Hoodie, former house and freelance designer for companies such as Michael Miller, Blank Quilting, and Timeless Treasures, is their new Art Director. They are wanting to build their presence in [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2012: Timeless Treasures – Designers

Here’s a look at Timeless Treasures‘ designer collections from Spring Quilt Market 2012. These are all in stores now. Ship Shape is a dramatic and graphic take on nautical by the awesome Alice Kennedy. I’m seeing patriotic kids’ clothes as well as modern nursery decor and quilts.     Hoodie is keeping with the produce [...]

Hoodie: L’Amour de la Vie

Also new from Timeless Treasures is Hoodie‘s L’Amour de La Vie. The Parisian theme is a perennial favorite, and Hoodie has made it her own with folky, graphic, and colorful styling. As she writes on her website, “Black Ground is all year around!” In addition to the quilting cottons, at least one of these prints [...]

Preview: Three Collections by Hoodie

Fruit a la Carte is the biggest, and the strawberry print will be available in laminated cotton. The other two are called All That Jazz and Alien Friends. Alien Friends [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2010 – Blank Quilting – Hoodie!

I got to meet Diana Mancini, creative director for Blank Quilting, and Hoodie herself! There she is, in the picture above. Blank produces a few contemporary collections but Hoodie is my favorite. (And judging from the emails I get asking where to get her fabrics, she’s yours too!) Hoodie’s latest is Veggie Patch, which is [...]

New Release Tuesday

New Release Tuesday is my weekly roundup of new fabric sightings. These fresh arrivals have started to arrive in fabric shops and are ready to buy. Retailers, as always, if you carry any of these collections, let us know in the comments.   The carnival print from Kokka was probably my single most favorite print [...]

Rumba by Hoodie

{ The Ballroom Tweet } I always like to see what Japanese designer Hoodie is doing over at Blank Quilting. Her latest is Rumba, and it’s sure to please all you bird lovers. Plus it’s a manageable little collection. There are only five fabrics on the Blank Quilting site but the shops are selling them [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2009: Blank Quilting

Although I love meeting the popular contemporary designers, seeing their work up close, and (hopefully) absorbing some of their talent just by standing near them, one of my favorite parts of Quilt Market last year was making discoveries at more traditional and lesser known (to our market segment, anyway) manufacturers’ booths. And alas, I didn’t [...]
