Spring Quilt Market 2012: Birch Fabrics – Future Collections

  Birch Fabrics also gave a glimpse at their collections coming later this summer into early fall. They’re adding a new designer to their roster, Rebekah Ginda, and you can see her debut organic collection below! First, Dan Stiles’ third collection for Birch, Safari Soiree.

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Moda – Salt Air by Cosmo Cricket

Nautical collections were a distinct theme at this market — they were about halfway divided between classic boating-and-sea motifs and more wild, creative interpretations. Salt Air by Cosmo Cricket (their second collection for Moda) falls in the latter category for sure. Salt Air has scales-within-scales, whale’s tails, a graphic take on a seashell, bubbles, and [...]

This collection retains MoMo’s signature style, [...]

New Minny Muu from Lecien

(feed readers, please click over to see the slide show if it doesn’t show up for you in your reader.) Minny Muu is a collection of small-scale prints from Lecien that is much more versatile than many Japanese novelty prints.

I’d love to see more woodcut-y and/or tattoo-flash-y ship imagery on contemporary fabric, wouldn’t you? Related posts: Daily Swatch: [...]
