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.
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.by
