Spring Quilt Market 2016

It’s super hard to believe that Spring Quilt Market 2016 was more than a week ago.

Here’s the booth shot. Let’s just say it was part closet, part living room and full-on fabric and quilt explosion. All good things.

I really wanted to show off my new fabric Euclid, my new patterns Hesperides and Crew, and have some fun with all of it. Because fabric and quilts are fun.

I had tons of projects, many of which were from the Euclid Lookbook plus some more. I’ve been pretty excited about Euclid and even more excited about using it as an excuse to sew up all kinds of things. In the coming weeks, I’ll be sharing more specifics about the projects, but in the meantime here are some (slightly random) visuals from the show.

No surprise that I loved ALL of Arianna’s garments, especially these two Euclid dresses…

With Nichole…booth sitting…as you do. (This Euclid top that I’m wearing is from one of my fave new Japanese sewing books…I’ll make sure to post about it soon.)

This was a great sighting! It’s an Austin House quilt in Kim Kight’s new collection for Cotton+Steel, Rotary Club.

I did manage to get out and see some sights..briefly. I was super impressed with the gardens at the temple square.

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.
