Fall Quilt Market 2012: Michael Miller – Patty Young

Patty Young introduced her new line of quilting cotton called Textured Basics. While it is quilting cotton in terms of weight and feel, the fabric is overprinted with faux texture that makes the fabric look like a canvas. Tricky, tricky.  The faux texture creates the illusion of an added dimension on the surface of the fabric [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2012: Michael Miller – Designers

I’m (finally!) wrapping up Spring Quilt Market coverage with Michael Miller‘s designer booths. Keli covered the in-house collections, while Lauren got the designer booths — and, even though I forgot to ask, she got MM’s main, award-winning display. (Thanks, Lauren!) The Portland and NYC Modern Quilt Guild’s collectively created quilts showed off Michael Miller’s Cotton Couture [...]

Blog Tour: Sewing MODKID Style by Patty Young

Designer Patty Young has further rounded out her already-impressive resume with her new book Sewing ModKid Style, published by Wiley Craft. I am excited to play hostess to her blog tour today. Now, there have been books about sewing for girls, but Patty’s is unique in that it focuses on sewing with knits for girls. [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Michael Miller – Lush by Patty Young

    Patty Young‘s new collection Lush evokes exotic tropical far-off lands, so I was surprised to read that it was inspired by the Missouri Botanical Gardens! But that’s Patty’s creative genius at work. Like Sandi’s collection, Lush also includes coordinating Cotton Couture solids. See Patty’s blog for info on coordinating ribbons and new patterns, and of course [...]

In addition to its own prints, Michael Miller also has a number of designers working with them, both old favorites and some new additions. First up, two beachy collections. Mark Hordyszynski, a prolific fabric designer and author, showed his new marine animal and hula girl collection. The collection includes both fabric and embroidery patterns and [...]

Here’s a peek at some of the collections Michael Miller Fabrics is introducing this weekend at Spring Market. Expect them in stores this summer!   Children at Play is by children’s book illustrator Sarah Jane, who is one of Michael Miller’s newest designers (there will be several more this year!). It’s an epic collection divided [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2010 – Michael Miller – Patty Young

Patty Young has been one of the industry leaders in educating the market about sewing with less familiar substrates. Here she is with her husband Jon, modeling samples of her new sewing patterns for polyester double knit and velour. Heh. Wouldn’t that be something? Really, their booth was to introduce Sanctuary, Patty’s first collection on [...]

Preview: Sanctuary by Patty Young

Here’s a little peek at Patty Young’s next collection for Michael Miller. It’s a quilting cotton collection (I love that you have to specify that now — it’s no longer assumed!) named Sanctuary, due out this October. Shop owners, it’s not even ready for pre-order yet, but keep an eye on Patty’s blog for updates. [...]

New Release Tuesday

Which new fabric collections are now in the shops and ready to buy? Since Tuesday is the day of the week when new music and DVDs tend to be released in the U.S., I thought I’d follow along (even though fabric doesn’t follow this kind of schedule). Shops, as always, if you carry any of [...]
