Tula Pink captures the mystery and magic, the shadows and the intrigue of Halloween in her newest collection for Free Spirit . Inspired by Victorian decadence and dangerous beauty, let me present to you the ladies of Nightshade, a wicked trio of sisters that could charm even the hearts of the Ghastliest of creatures. Please enjoy a brief introduction to these sisters from miss Tula herself!
Quilt from Thomas Knauer
And now for something completely different!
Savanna Bop is the latest collection from Thomas Knauer for Andover Fabrics, and I daresay it's his most cheerful yet - pure sunshine!
As you can see, the scale and range of designs of this line lends it beautifully for quilting. Head over to Thomas' Blog for the sweet backstory behind this lovely "H" quilt! (sorry, no pattern available as yet).
From beloved expert on surface design Marie Parkins, the gal who keeps us up to date on her Print and Pattern blog, comes yet another great juvenile collection for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. Get ready for your little kids to Roar! for this colorful collection!
Inspired by her "rambunctious, energetic" two little boys, Jamie Wood has designed a super cute graphic collection! City Streets features clean lines and bold colors, and these designs will no doubt make their way into some adorable clothing, accessories, quilts and decor - enjoy!
Aahhh summertime... picnics, fireworks, flowers and fun!
Vintage Summer, Blend Fabrics newest release for the season, is a recipe for sweet sewing success. The classic color palette of red, white, and blue is as familiar as apple pie!
Next Stop London
Who's ready for the Olympics? Laurie Wisbrun is! Her newest collection Next Stop London pops with British style and iconic flare. Love everything about these designs!
Known for his brightly fun juvenile lines, Caleb Gray has two great new groupings just in from Robert Kaufman Fabrics. From the whimsical domesticated friends in Pet Park and on the go Cone Zone, these are sure to be a hit for moms and kids alike. I'm loving the fishbowl and those chevron tire tracks myself!!!
