Timeless Treasures: Elephant Showers

Elephant Showers, a house collection from Timeless Treasures, is so retro-good, I may not need to shop for vintage fabric again. Well, that will never happen, but these happy 60s-70s prints made the thought at least cross my mind, so that’s saying something! { image courtesty Hawthorne Threads } Related posts: Timeless Treasures: Elephants on [...]

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 [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Art Gallery Fabrics

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: Cloud 9 – Happy Drawing by Ed Emberley

In the first post I mentioned how Cloud9 is growing. Not only are they moving in to bona fide headquarters soon, they have a new partnership with the legendary artist Ed Emberley. He formed (at least) an entire generation of artists with his drawing books, so I can’t be more excited to see him on [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Cloud9 – Michelle Engel Bencsko and Gennine Zlatkis

I think this is true of all the small organic fabric companies, but I think Cloud9 Fabrics, with the caliber of their designs and the breadth of artists they are getting onto fabric, is pushing the industry forward in a big way. The collections they were showing at Market — their current collections as well [...]

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 [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Anthology Fabrics – Leah Duncan, Amelia Gailey, and Diane Kappa

Quilt Market semi-newcomer Anthology Fabrics continues to expand their print offerings, and I think this season’s collections are going to make them an official power player. Leah Duncan‘s talents have become well known in the design world of late, and now she will have her first quilting cotton collection called Maya. These prints take my [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2011: Robert Kaufman – greenSTYLE

Robert Kaufman’s greenSTYLE organic fabrics range continues to expand. Not only do we have The Lorax, but three other exciting modern collections. First, Modern Whimsy by Laurie Wisbrun. Again, I was in such a frenzy that I spaced on photographing the beautiful booth displays! But you can see Laurie’s here. You know she has a [...]
