After a jaunt last weekend to Kansas City for Quilt Market, I’m excited for the release of several new fabric lines. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s might be coming to your local quilt shop soon, including some floral, whimsical and bold fabric designs for quilting and sewing.
Chicopee by Denyse Schmidt for FreeSpirit. The tiny prints in muted colors blend well with her Hope Valley line or some of her recent prints for Jo-Ann Fabrics.
Nursery Versery by Heather Ross for Kokka. Whimsical and perfect for carry-all bags and children’s clothing, these prints may make you okay with having a “mouse in the house.”
Lillybelle by Bari J. for Art Gallery Fabrics. You’ll be inspired to sew once you feel the silky texture of these quilting cottons in floral prints.
Cameo by Amy Butler for Rowan/Westminster (photo Crimson Tate). Journey back in time with muted greens, grays and blues in ornate and simple floral prints, suitable for quilting and wearables.
Out to Sea by Sarah Jane for Michael Miller (photo Crimson Tate). The nautical fabric mixes geographic flair with bubble gum pink for a fresh, modern look.
Madrona Road by Violet Craft for Michael Miller (photo ImAGingerMonkey). These colors perfectly marry summer and fall, with berry tones and lemon yellows for a fresh and fragrant look.
Crabtastic by Maude Asbury for Blend Fabrics (photo ImAGingerMonkey). It’s out to sea for these cute crabs, with a darling text print to complement.
Field Study by Anna Maria Horner for FreeSpirit. A nature-inspired complement to her previous line, Loulouthi. The deep, rich tones look right at home in wearables and accessories.
Mama Said Sew by Sweetwater for Moda. Monochromatic prints with text elements are a signature for Sweetwater. Roll out the picnic blanket and mix these prints with Reunion or Hometown for a twist.
Simply Color by V & Co. for Moda. Rainbow colors, everywhere! This line includes both prints and solids with an ombre effect (color increases in intensity across the pre-cuts).
Echino 2012 for Seven Islands. You won’t want to miss the deer with glasses, plus fun mixers like polka dots and damask.
Kona Modern Quilts by Cynthia Frenette for Robert Kaufman. Have your fabric and quilt it, too. These funky brights are toned down by brown in this bedroom set.
There you have it! Which of these lines are you most looking forward to sewing with?
LOVE the Simply Color! They are all gorgeous though!
I can’t pick just one! I LOVE Cameo by Amy Butler and I’m also interested in Simply Color. Thanks for this awesome review of the new fabrics coming out!
Wow! So many great lines! I really love the Out To Sea line – you seldom see nautical lines that are girly. Love it!
I think I love the Echino line most. I’m a bright color kind of girl!
Echino looks great.
