Fall Quilt Market 2011: Cloud9 – June Craft and Michéle Brummer Everett

Cloud9 is gearing up for their next release, Monsterz by Michéle Brummer Everett. It’s so adorable and I think captures exactly what the modern parent wants to sew with. You could definitely say the same for all the Cloud9 Kids collections: Michéle’s follow-up, Seven Seas, and new Cloud9 Designer June Craft‘s Hey, That’s Swell!, which [...]

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.

Timeless Treasures: Elephants on Parade

Elephants on Parade is a new in-house collection from Timeless Treasures. The bright colors and black backgrounds give it such a 60s-70s vibe, and I’m loving the village print. Elephants on roofs!

Richard Scarry Busytown From Quilting Treasures

And speaking of Quilting Treasures licensed character collections that tug at my nostalgia strings … coming soon (October, I believe) is Richard Scarry’s Busytown. I’ve shared my love for Richard Scarry here before — as a kid I loved Cars and Trucks and Things That Go far more than Barbie! I’d spend hours looking for [...]

Tawny Scrawny Lion From Quilting Treasures

Quilting Treasures produces some of the best licensed character collections! They have already printed a few collections based on classic Little Golden Books, and this one — The Tawny Scrawny Lion — might be my favorite. I’ve never actually read the story, but I love that patchwork print! And it’s time I got some of [...]

Fabric Fives: Shelly Figueroa and Karen LePage

Here she uses the fabric as trim for her new Charlie Tunic sewing pattern [...]
