Fall Quilt Market 2011: Anthology Fabrics – Khristian A. Howell

Khristian A. Howell is one of those people who are just so awesome and hardworking, you want them to stop because they’re making the rest of us look bad. Oh, only kidding! Especially because she shares so much to help others become successful surface designers. Anthology was showing two new collections by Khristian for Winter-Spring [...]

Nicole’s Prints are a fun assortment of themes and motifs, and Monkey’s Bizness is their kid’s line. First, Musing on a Moustache and Where’s My ‘Stache? — hopefully will [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Robert Kaufman – Marie Perkins

If you read True Up you probably also read Print & Pattern by bowie style. But you may not know that bowie style’s real name is Marie Perkins, and that she also runs her own surface design studio called Inkjet Designs (here’s her blog, another must-read). Some of the most exciting news for me to come out [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Andover – Thomas Knauer

AND the great quilts and [...]
