Fall Quilt Market 2012: FreeSpirit

FreeSpirit fabrics have a special place in my heart — probably because they were the ones who brought us Amy Butler fabric. Do you remember how exciting that was??? I feel like that’s now “back in the day,” that’s how long it’s been. (Is this where I confess that I took a stack of Amy [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2012: Rowan – Melissa White, V&A Museum

Camille by Melissa White, which will also ship in July, is another collection where the botanical prints take on a new look depending on the colors used.

Spring Quilt Market 2011: Westminster/Rowan – Amy Butler

Amy Butler‘s fabric was some of the first fabric that I ever bought, so I was thrilled to meet her in person and see the new lines. The booth featured Amy’s new line, Organic Soul, features prints “derived and rescued” from Amy’s Soul Blossoms collection. These prints will be available in FIVE substrates: corduroy, a [...]
