Spring Quilt Market 2011: Rowan – Melissa White

You might have already seen Melissa White‘s line in your local quilt store, as it started shipping earlier this year. Fairlyte Garden is her first collection with Westminster/Rowan but her background in hand painted interiors, textiles, and frescoes makes it look like an effortless transition. The palette, is again, distinctly Westminster with five prints in [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2011: Rowan – Kaffe Fasset Collective and Martha Negley

Westminster/Rowan had fewer of their designers on hand this year, maybe because Spring Market is a bit smaller? No matter, as their fabric offerings were, as usual, stunning (and their partner company FreeSpirit had plenty of designer booths to go around). The Kaffe Fasset Collective is comprised of Kaffe, Brandon Mably, and Philip Jacobs. While [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2010 – Westminster/Rowan – Kaffe Fassett

I spent literally the final moments of fall Market at Kaffe Fassett’s booth talking to him and the always-awesome Liza Prior Lucy. So, I didn’t manage to get shots of the new prints, but I’m sure Liza wouldn’t mind me pointing you over to Glorious Color to see them! New Kaffe prints include a floral [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2010 – FreeSpirit/Westminster – Amy Butler

Did I say that Echino was probably the most-photographed display? Certainly that honor has to go to Amy Butler. This season her award-winning booth was devoted to her new fabric collection Soul Blossoms (which is just hitting stores now), two new sewing patterns (the Reversible Sunday Sling Bag and the Oval Patchy Pillow, which also [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2010: Thread

I was thrilled to meet with Nancy Jewell of Coats & Clark and Westminster/Rowan this Quilt Market. She took me on a whirlwind tour of What’s New in Thread … the biggest news being that Rowan is introducing premium-quality, long staple Egyptian cotton thread sets and individual spools that coordinate with Amy Butler’s and Kaffe [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2010: Kaffe Fassett / Liberty Art Fabrics + Book Giveaway

Kaffe Fassett and Liza Prior Lucy were missing from Quilt Market this time, and it wasn’t the same without them! But there was new Kaffe fabric, of course. Marleybone (above) is the second installment in the Liberty Art Fabrics collection — these are prints chosen from the Liberty archives and colored by Kaffe. Learn more [...]

Amy Butler has released a preview of her Fall 2010 collection for Westminster, called Soul Blossoms. It includes a range of quilting cotton collection three colorways (Bliss, Joy, and Passion), home decor weight cottons, and cotton laminates. We’ll look at the decor weight and laminates later this week, because there are some prints unique to [...]

Spring Quilt Market Sneak Peeks: Kaffe Fassett Collective

Liza Prior Lucy sent me this glowingly gorgeous stack of fat quarters representing some of the newest designs from the Kaffe Fassett Collective, which is composed of Brandon Mably and Philip Jacobs in addition to Kaffe. They will be presenting other color families of coordinated and cooperatively designed fabrics, which will be coming soon to [...]

New(ish!) Kaffe Fassett

I’m long overdue in posting these, but these are two of Kaffe Fassett‘s newest fabric prints: Wood Ear (top) and Henna (bottom). Thanks to Liza Prior Lucy of Gloriouscolor.com for sending these to me! Russian Rose, Bubble Flowers, and Kirman are the other newest additions to the extensive and ever-evolving collection.
