Cotorienne by Anyan for Yuwa

We got to see Anyan‘s Summer/Autumn 2012 Cotorienne collection for Yuwa (a website for Yuwa! Hooray!) at Fall Quilt Market, and now it’s starting to arrive in stores and I’m getting all jittery and hoardy feeling. The Spring 2013 collection is also online and available through his online shop, but maybe not till later this [...]

Felicity Miller: Charleston Farmhouse

I assumed Felicity Miller‘s new Charleston Farmhouse collection for Freespirit referenced Charleston, South Carolina, but no, it’s about the Charleston house in Sussex, England, the meeting place for the loose collective of creatives and intellectuals known as the Bloomsbury group. The focus print drew me in when I first saw it in a booth at Quiltcon — the navy [...]

Liberty of London: The Flower Show

Liberty of London have carved out their own niche in textile history for their distinctive florals. For spring-summer 2013, their new Tana Lawn collection circles back to the subject that made them famous. But The Flower Show is not at all about the classic “Liberty Print” — it’s about how nature’s most enduring muse can [...]

Liberty of London: The Flower Show – Artist Florals

Each and every print from Liberty of London‘s new season collection The Flower Show is about the art of the flower, but these three groups-with-the-collection are more overtly so because they’re by artists, known and unknown. The group titled simply “Florals” features detailed and delicae artwork by Rachel Pedder-Smith, Debbie Smyth, and Josephine Gomersall, as [...]

Liberty of London: Flower Show – Botanical Garden Digital Prints

Liberty of London has been dividing their seasonal Tana Lawn collections into unique and electic groupings, and for the last few collections, one of the groupings has been all digital. Botanical Garden is the name of this season’s digital group, and it features art by Mary Fedden, Hugo Grenville, and Rachel Pedder Smith, as well as [...]

Muddy Works by Tomotake

  { image from Pink Chalk Fabrics } I misidentifed this collection at Quilt Market as Nani Iro (thanks to Miss Matatabi for the info), so I am posting to make amends and also because they’re wonderful fabrics worth another look. Muddy Works is by husband and wife design team Tomotake, and the simple geometric [...]

Amy Sedaris: I Like You

Windham is throwing down the gauntlet on celebrity fabric collections with Amy Sedaris‘ I Like You. Take that, Marie Osmond and Ty Pennington! Aside from Amy’s celebrity, there sure aren’t enough funny/weird fabric collections out there so I hope this marks the beginning of a long and beautiful contract. Amy Sedaris is the author of [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2012: Moda

At market, Moda is a fixture and they often have a fun and whimsical theme to welcome you into their section of the floor, and they have a big compound of booths! This market they had a theme of Glamping and color. The dip-dyed paint stirrers were my favorite part of their area. It’s a [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2012: Anna Griffin

This was my first time meeting the folks at Anna Griffin and their new division Blend firsthand, and I was not only impressed by their current and upcoming collections but also how they presented their brand as a whole. Everyone looked professional in sharp black dresses, their marketing materials are stunning, and I think there’s something to be [...]
