Moda: Made With Love

I had to point out this in-house mini-collection from Moda, Made With Love, in case you hadn’t seen it (they don’t do a lot of in-house print collections!) It’s been out for a little while now, so you fans of text and sewing-themed and retro prints, get it while it lasts. Made With Love was [...]

Lizzy House: Hello Pilgrim

{ Wanderer Palette } Hello Pilgrim is Lizzy House‘s newest. Most (all?) of her previous collections have been centered on conversational prints, but Hello Pilgrim marks a turn to a more classic assortment of florals and geometrics. Well, there’s butterflies, but butterflies are about as floral as you can get in a novelty motif. These [...]

Michéle Brummer-Everett: Monsterz

{ photo by Michelle Engel Bencsko } Monsterz by Michéle Brummer-Everett for Cloud9 Fabrics is finally available in stores now in a few weeks!

Vlisco: Silent Empire

Vlisco‘s newest collection is Silent Empire. Vlisco always does the most beautiful job in introducing their new fabrics so I’ll just quote their description! “The fabric designs of the Silent Empire collection feature daring graphic patterns, toned down by a colour palette of muted earth tones. The careful use of bright blue and lime green [...]

After I post this I’m running right over to [...]

See the QT Library for all their children’s book fabric panels. Related posts: Tawny Scrawny Lion From Quilting Treasures Quilting Treasures: The Saggy Baggy Elephant Richard Scarry Busytown [...]

David Walker: Get Together, and Quilting Collection Design Trends

I’ve always been fond of David Walker’s charming kids’ collections for FreeSpirit. His newest, Get Together, features bears, pigs, squirrels, birds, and hearts. So sweet! I’m also interested in how this collection is all novelty prints (with a lot of floral action mixed in) — in this case he is playing with density and scale [...]

Liberty Art Fabrics Spring Summer 2012

This season, Liberty of London introduces their Spring Summer 2012 Tana Lawn collection on video! Head Designer Emma Mawston explains the influences behind the groups. Glencot House, Whitworth, and The National Gallery were inspired by archives, antiques, and costume. Though the influences are very historical and classic, the prints are very fashion-forward and innovative. The [...]
