Euclid Fabric

Euclid Fabric

Good news, I have a little something to share.

Meet, Euclid–my newest fabric collection for Robert Kaufman. Euclid is quite a bit different from my other collections. First, this is an overprinted collection onto Essex–a linen/cotton blend and one of my favorite substrates from Robert Kaufman. All of my previous collections have been printed on their quilting cotton base, which means the look and feel of Euclid is a little bit different. Plus, it makes it so well-suited for tons of tasks at hand–garments, bags and accessories, and quilts.

Next, there are just 6 pieces to this collection. I’ve typically been a 1-collection-a-year kind of gal, which is why it has been supremely important to me that this collection offers things that my previous collections have not. And being just 6 pieces, meant I thought over and over (and over) about each one of them to make sure that they each brought plenty to the table and could be used for many many different things and in many many different ways. They’re a hardworking group!

That’s the general overview. You can read more about the collection, see tons of projects (including my new ones!) and find out more about why this type of collection is so special to me by taking a look at this special Lookbook that I put together.

A big big thank you to Robert Kaufman for supporting not only this project, but for always supporting me in all the ways that they do. (And for creating some of the best fabric out there! If I do say so myself…)

I owe a big thank you to Anna Graham (of Noodlehead) who created a special project (and free pattern) for this collection. You can see it in the Lookbook as well.

And another super big thank to you Alexis Wharem of Greenprint Photography here in Lake Wales. You might remember Lexi, because she is also responsible for all of the photography in my book, as well as the technique shots from my Collection Quilt pattern. It’s always a pleasure working with her, and she was able to capture the collection exactly how I imagined it.

I’ll be sharing more about all the projects in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.

I the meantime, thanks again for all of your support. I really hope you like this new collection.

    Fab. Want to get my hands on the fabric now! Do you know where it might be stocked in the UK?

      Thanks so much! I’m not sure which shops will pick it up in the UK, but I’d definitely ask your local shop to stock it and check the ones who usually carry my fabric. You can also check the UK shop listings on my website directory.

    Yay!!!! I’m so excited to get these in my hands. I love and use Essex a lot already. I have been waiting for this day! All that dimension and texture to work with have me thinking of what to use it with first.

    Well, count me in! When can we expect to see Euclid in stores?

  23. sweetbugfarm April 7, 2016 at 6:06 pm #

    oh my! these are simply fabulous! the lookbook is just amazing as well. I have ordered them all and will wait (not so) patiently until their arrival in August!
    thank you for putting together such a balanced, thoughtful collection.

    Oh yes, I do love your new fabric (and it seems I’m in good company, judging from what I read in the previous comments). Your look-book is awesome – it feels so ‘complete’ and makes me wanna try everything.. the brown bag is stunning. It’s a great choice to offer your line on Essex, I hope many quilting cotton producers will follow.. It’s just so much nicer to sew with ‘real garment fabrics’ than to use that quilting weight quality (because of the huge range of designs).
    Wonderful job, Bravo l’artiste, Bisous from France!

    I used Euclid # 16281 black/grey for background (wrong fabric side )and border (right side of fabric) in a wall hanging. It looks fabulous in a minimal quilt from the book Minimal Quilting by Gwen Marston. Thanks for keeping your line fresh and calm!
