What’s the new-news in the world of fabric? We went to the industry’s top trade show, Quilt Market, and scoped it out. Let us share the beauty with you! Prepare to drool!
Let’s get to drooling and linking (and laughing at goofy pictures of Jacinda and I drooling) after the jump…
Amy Butler is soon launching Soul Blossom in voile, corduroy, and most excitingly, rayon! Can’t wait to make some of her lovely clothing patterns in this soft silky fabric, just wait until you feel it.
Kokka Japan. Lusty.
Heather Ross for Kokka, always a winner.
Birch Fabrics Organics, designed and created by our very own Cynthia, proprietress of Fabricworm. All the fabrics work together! You can even mix and match across collections!
Look, there she is, in a Birch Fabrics dress! We had so much fun at the bar after the show. That’s all I have to say about that.
Sandi Henderson’s amazing new Secret Garden
Paula Prass was a delight to chat with, and when we demanded her collection come in home decor weight, she agreed. Go Paula, make it happen! We want it!
Alyssa Thomas of Penguin & Fish has always had lovely embroidery patterns…
but she is launching her first fabric line too!
aren’t these two lovers adorbs?
Beautiful fabric with embroidery patterns on it!
And pre-made bias tape and quilt binding in her signature style and singular fabrics! What? Yes!
Cloud 9 has some new organic fabrics about to hit that are ridic cute! Love these monsters…
But a favorite of their new offerings is Julia Rothman‘s Miscellany line! We have Julia Rothman wallpaper in Scarlet’s room, so of course I was thrilled to see she has a fabric collection about to hit.
Valori Wells has always been one of our faves, so we were delighted to see her adorable booth, and…
Jacinda got maybe a little too comfortable?
We love that Valori’s habit/hobby is to draw on rocks. I mean, how amazing is this?
and Valori and I goof off. yes, i wore a hat inside. don’t judge me.
Joel Dewberry is an amazing fabric designer as we all know, but we discovered that he is also a lovely man who crafts!
And his wife designs and sews many of their creations, like this adorbs bird
and these amazing patterns
Batiks – we stumbled upon a lovely batik booth, the manufacturer escapes me, can someone fill me in?
I desired to make this batik purse my own…
Paris Apartment by Bari J was just lovely…
Then a sudden downpour hit (for the only 15 minutes we spent outside all day) so Jacinda scored a pink umbrella (hello, gift for child + useful item) and we hoofed it over to Bruges Waffles & Frites.
Could we talk about Bruges Waffles & Frites more on Prudent Baby? A picture is worth a thousand words.
Machine Gun Sandwich. Yes, there are french fries IN my sandwich. What of it?
Then we waited for you all to show. It was an amazing party. We told ourselves it was the rain. It was the rain, right?
