Dear Stella: New Collections

{ Petal Pusher } For their sophomore effort as a new-to-the-scene fabric company, Dear Stella has released a small group of collections before the next big debuts at Spring Quilt Market.

Kelly Lee-Creel: Storybook Lane

Kelly Lee-Creel (aka Ever Kelly) is the lastest designer to join the growing modern ranks of Andover Fabrics. I met Kelly a few quilt markets ago and through email, her blog, and in person have been following her journey toward her dream of becoming a fabric designer.

Kokka: Cosmic Zoo

I got quite a few inquiries when I posted about Soizic Gilbert‘s collection Cosmic Zoo for Kokka when it debuted at Quilt Market. It’s the Japanese company’s first organic cotton collection and apparently many of you can’t wait to get your hands on it! It’s out now, available at Superbuzzy, and Voodoo Rabbit in Australia [...]

Marimekko Spring 2012

Here’s what’s next from Art Gallery Fabrics: Poetica (above), in stores February 2012. Pat Bravo has been brining some rougher, more natural looking lines to her motifs, which I love. Summerlove has a warm-season palette befitting its name, and with lots of Tangerine, which happens to be the Pantone color of the year. It’ll be out [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Clothworks

Brandi Frey, marketing coordinator for Clothworks, is one of my favorite Quilt Market people! I got to sit down with her again at this market, though it felt too short. Clothworks has some lovely new collections coming in Spring 2012. You can see all of them here. First, we have Robin by Erin Ries, a [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Blend Fabrics – Maude Asbury

Maude Asbury may or may not be a real person, but she can make a mean fabric collection or three. Calypso, out now, is an exciting mix of graphic florals and geometrics. By the way, I love Anna Griffin/Blend‘s fabric ladder displays.   Kitchy Kitchen is also out now.   Tinsel is for Christmas 2012 [...]
