Quilt Market This Weekend, New Fabric Collection Debut

My newest fabric collection will debut this weekend at The Spring Quilt Market in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  It is called “Paradise” and is a William Morris Inspired collection.  I have been a fan of William Morris’ Craftsman era design work my entire life.

The Panel Fabric has been designed with home decor or gift making in mind.  The square designs could be used for pillows, central images in a wall hanging or a quilt, as pockets on a quilted tote bag or the front panel of an apron, in quilted potholders, place mats… the possibilities are endless!

Here is a list of the text on the panel fabric:  “We may not have it all together, but together we have it all,” “Our family is a circle of strength and love, founded on faith, joined in love, kept by God,” “Home is where your story begins,” “What ever is done in love is done well,” “Live – Love – Laugh,” “We do not remember the days, we remember the moments,” “And in the end it’s not the year in a life, it’s the life in the years.”

There are additional colorways in the blues and the persimmon that will either coordinate or take the look in a little different direction.

I particularly like a black ground when I’m creating a quilted bag for everyday use, or ESPECIALLY APRONS.  I’m quite a “slinger” in the kitchen and black covers a multitude of sins, LOL!

A personal favorite in this collection is the border stripe.  Usable on its own for pillows or an accent fabric in a room, it can also be cut up for the borders of a quilt.  I love designing border fabrics in varying widths that will look as though you picked different but coordinating fabrics to create your quilt with.

LINK TO FABRIC COLLECTION AT STUDIO E FABRICS

Finding the fabrics in stores and online will take a bit.  They ship by the end of June.  The best way to find the fabrics at retail is to look in Google with the key words: Studio E Fabrics, Paradise and Audrey Jeanne Roberts.  If any fabric stores would like to contact me and let me know that you’re carrying the line I’d be more than happy to pass your links on.

A Special Friend Stopped By Today…

Phyllis Dobbs, who is a wonderful artist specializing in designing fabrics as well as many other products, stopped by my blog at Daisie Company and noticed that it has been disabled so she emailed me.  (Which reminds me to mention to you guys that have found my blog here, please send a note to anyone you know has been a reader giving them the new link if you would please :-).)

Phyllis and I have known each other for about 5 or 6 years now and have so much fun together at the gift show in Atlanta when I get to go there.  She designs some incredibly whimsical art.  I snagged a picture from her blog to post here.  If you love finding out about quilting or other sewing projects, you’ll love to stop by her blog which is on my blogroll to the right.  Her regular website address is www.phyllisdobbs.com.  Stop by and say “Hi!”
