Amy Barickman: Chloe’s Christmas

I don’t know how I missed Amy Barickman (Indygo Junction)’s holiday collection Chloe’s Christmas, especially since we just had an interview with her about her Sew-It Book reprinting and fabric collection! And it’s probably too late for this year’s holiday sewing, but I had to show it to you nonetheless. I think you should pick [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2009: Kokka Part III: Nani Iro (with Giveaway!)

Naomi Ito’s newest collection within her Nani Iro brand is called Antique Label. This is Vol. 1, Rose & Poppy. For those of us used to the signature Nani Iro watercolor designs, this is quite a style shift! But this is just a detour into reproductions – 1920s-40s florals to be exact. I gather that [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2009: Lecien

Nireko Ohira, native of Japan who has worked at Lecien‘s office in California for several years, kindly showed me the dozens of lines the company is offering now. Everything I have pictured here today is currently delivering or is now available in shops. There was so much of it that I have to break it [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2009: Moda Home

Well, this year I failed to see the upcoming fabric collections from Moda (their booth complex is a mini city and everyone is constantly busy!) but I did get to take pictures of the Moda Home products, shown here, and the quilts and a couple of the designers’ booths, which I’ll save for a later [...]

Christmas 2009 Fabrics

It’s been 105°F here for as long as I can remember, so I’m suspicious that these things you call “winter” and “Christmas” are on the horizon. But the fabric companies say so, and I’ll take their word for it. Here are my favorites so far for this year’s new batch of Christmas fabrics. Above: a [...]

Windham Fabrics: Feedsack V: c.1930s

(Feed readers: Please click over to see the slideshow if it’s not visible. I’m trying out a new slideshow generator — what do you think?) Windham Fabrics has a feedsack reproduction series, the most recent of which is Feedsack V (though I can’t find evidence anywhere of Feedsack IV — is that because that could [...]

Judy Roche & Corienne Kramer: Peddler’s Pack Civil War Collection

Civil war reproductions aren’t normally my thing but I do know beautiful fabric when I see it. I mean, who doesn’t love pink + brown? This is the Peddler’s Pack Civil War Collection by Judy Roche & Corienne Kramer for Henry Glass. Liza Prior Lucy of the Kaffe Fassett Collective was kind enough to send [...]

New House Textiles

More mushrooms! This is “Wild Mushroom,” available from New House Textiles, a U.K.-based, family-owned company with a history reaching back to 1921. They sell homewares and accessories, including the herring collection that has made the rounds of the design blog world lately. The collections are originals reproduced from midcentury Swedish designs from the company Almedahls. [...]

Fabric and Copyright Revisited: Law, Ethics, and Name Recognition

We’ve been through this a few years ago with Amy Butler — a blogger found a vintage tablecloth by an anonymous designer that Ms. Butler reworked for one of her quilting fabric lines. Ms. Butler turned out to be extremely gracious and open amidst the controversy and transparent about her process, and I learned a [...]
