Spring Quilt Market 2012: FreeSpirit/Westminster – Joel Dewberry

Joel Dewberry is one of just a few guys in the row of Westminster/FreeSpirit designers, and I think that he holds the banner high: Real Men Aren’t Afraid of Ruffles.   This market, Joel was showcasing his rapidly expanding line of sewing patterns, Eclectic Modern. His booth was full of the bright floral and geometric [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2012: FreeSpirit/Westminster – Amy Butler

I was very excited to be tasked with photographing the Westminster/FreeSpirit designer booths; they are always such incredible displays of creativity and inspiration, and this year was no exception! As always, Amy Butler‘s space was immaculately styled and a perfect representation of her new line, Cameo. Cameo seems to marry the Asian-inspired aesthetic of Amy’s [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: FreeSpirit/Westminster – Amy Butler

Fall Quilt Market 2011: FreeSpirit/Westminster/Rowan

{ photo by Kristen Lejnieks } I ran out of time at Quilt Market and failed to capture the rest of FreeSpirit/Westminster/Rowan‘s offerings (except for Amy Butler, the one and only video I managed despite plans to video everyone, coming up next!). Fortunately the new collections are well-represented on the web, so I’ll point you [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: FreeSpirit/Westminster – Jenean Morrison

Jenean Morrison had an insanely creative booth. So I would have given her the Creativity Award if Quilt Market hadn’t beaten me to it. It made me think “Is there anything fabric can’t do?” Also, I’ve compared fabric to music before (collections = albums, etc.) so it’s just so helpful when designers actually name their [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: FreeSpirit/Westminster – Parson Gray

Happy New Year! Well, I wanted to have the Fall Quilt Market posts wrapped up at least by the end of 2011 — two months of posts was already getting ridiculous! — but I ended up taking the four-day weekend seriously. So, here are the first fireworks of the Quilt Market finale. Parson Gray, aka [...]

Preview: Curious Nature by Parson Gray for Westminster

I was so excited when I saw this on U-Handblog yesterday: David Butler, graphic designer, photographer, musician, and Amy Butler husband can now add textile genius to the list. He has a new brand, Parson Gray, and the first fabric collection will be introduced at Quilt Market later this month and is expected to be [...]

Melissa White: Misaki

{ Slavic } Melissa White is the newest designer on Westminster/Rowan‘s power lineup. This first collection, Misaki, is so gorgeous I can hardly stand it. There are eight prints in four colorways apiece — Slavic (my favorite, above), Edo, Jaipur, and Baltic. Which is your favorite? { Edo } { Baltic } { Jaipur } [...]

Retailers, as always, if you carry any of these collections, let us know in the comments. This week, there was so much to cover, I broke [...]
