Night Music

By Amy Butler

A little bit of mythology and a lot of magic inspires my Night Music collection. Folklore from the Gond tribe in central India says that during the day the natural world is busy taking care of the needs of everyone, and that at night the luminous spirits from the forest come alive. They believe that all of life is magical and integrated, and all aspects of the natural world are inseparable. This idea is both mysterious and charming and connects us to the seen and the unseen bringing about a positive feeling in being a part of the natural world. Night Blooming flourishes and decorative details weave together to create a beautifully imagined story. Enjoy and Happy Sewing! XO Amy

Stories and Songbirds

By Margot Elena

I invite you into the Library of Flowers. Stories & Songbirds comes from a desire to go back to my roots in design. Like so many in our modern culture, I have a craving to surround myself with beautiful, hand touched, hand created items in my environment. For this reason, I stepped away from my computer and went back to my origins of hand painted illustrations, vintage textiles, and a free-spirited fusion of patterns to capture the soulfulness of artisanal craftsmanship, which look beautiful, patched together in a quilt. Stories & Songbirds is an assemblage of beloved prints, each with a personality to unfold and a story to tell.

Once the nostalgia of another summer has gone by, autumn arrives full of crispness and clarity. My new collection Autumn Grace is a compilation of all the beauty I find in my favorite season of the year. The colors in this collection originate from many of nature’s gifts: foliage, acorns, apples, sprigs of bittersweet & rosehips, cider, squash, Cinderella pumpkins and lovely fall sunsets. The Autumn Grace is a romantic collection of florals in the most beautiful combination of colors. I can hardly wait to stitch with it. I envision making such lovely things for my home quilts, runners, tablecloths, pillows, and so much more! My hope is that it will inspire you as well.

Judith's Fancy

By Jennifer Paganelli

Judiths Fancy was the first place we lived when we moved to the island of St. Croix! High up in the hills, it looked out over the island where we could see to Tortola. This is where I met my first best friend, Beth, as we walked the long road home from the bus every day. Beth was stylish dressed in Key West hand print fabrics, the preview to Lilly Pulitzer. So long ago but filled with good memories of the salt air and ocean breeze. No matter where you stood on the island, the ocean was visible. Five miles wide and 25 miles long, the island was home for many years. This past year I took up painting and it was as if the island of St. Croix was inside the paintbrush. The colors, the subject matter, and all of my cherished memories have come back as I paint. The nostalgia of the island borrowed from the lens of a young girl and splashed onto canvas. The paintings have made their way into many of your homes with continued inquires and demand, we are trying these on cloth. From the master design inspired by my first best friend on the island, to the lovely coordinates that make this collection unique and beautiful, Judith’s Fancy is a quilter’s delight! Thank you for making an island girl feel good and help uncover her passion.

Jitterbug

By Amy Reber

The Jitterbug Collection by Amy Reber with its fresh and inviting colors is reminiscent of the bold sophistication found in the South. Amy took note of the region’s unique, crisp “Southern preppy” style and infused it into her designs for this nostalgic, yet modern collection. From hints of wicker furniture in “Terrace” to the beautiful delicate hydrangea-like florals of “Etta“ this collection is bursting with stories waiting to erupt at the whim of a quilter’s imagination. Just as every quilt, stitch, pattern and fabric choice weaves a tale, the Jitterbug collection will inspire quilters to create their own visions and tell their own stories.

Artichoke Garden

By Corinne Haig

As a California girl, I feel blessed that I grew up with lots of sunshine, surrounded by lush flowers, vegetable gardens, and orchards brimming with fruits and nuts. My grandparents were rice farmers and lived on a ranch, so the agricultural aspect of California has always influenced me. I have many memories of delicious family meals at the table that included freshly picked vegetables from the garden, fruit from the orchards, and a vase of flowers from the yard. That love for the garden is what inspired me to design my first collection, Artichoke Garden. It is brimming with colorful artichokes and artichoke hearts combined with luscious pomegranates and beautiful flowers like peonies and protea. I love how the artichoke is a beautiful purple thistle flower that becomes the most delicious and amazing vegetable! The artichoke originated in the Mediterranean and transported from Italy, so I wanted to bring in some of that history by adding hand-lettered words with the painted artichoke pattern. The Artichoke Garden Collection comes in Cabernet and Teal color ways and has bold stripes, ikat geometrics, and pomegranate seed-inspired dots. All of these work beautifully together and can be mixed and matched to create endless combinations of luscious florals, fruits, vegetables and geometrics. Painting is truly my happy place and the Artichoke Garden collection has been pure joy to create and see come to life on fabric. I hope you enjoy this collection and are inspired to create beautiful things that bring delight to you and others.

English Garden

By Snow Leopard Designs

The English Garden Collection for Snow Leopard Designs is inspired by my lifelong passion for English gardens. From the dense herbaceous borders overflowing with peonies and various hefty leaved flowering plants, to the ordered rows of vegetable and fruit gardens with their tomato and strawberry plants amid kale and cabbages. Then there are the roses climbing over trellis work in hidden leafy bowers and secret greenhouses full of scent and colour of variegated geraniums. In this new collection from Snow Leopard Designs I’ve tried to capture the wonder and magic of an English garden so the same scent and kaleidoscope of form and colour can permeate your own homes and projects.

Spirit Animal by Tula Pink

By Tula Pink

Once upon a time there was an undiscovered island that spent thousands of years evolving beyond the burdensome limitations of reality. Imagination was both currency and religion in this place. You could be anything that you wished as long as you had the daring to imagine it so. The animals didn’t know that they were supposed to be brown so they dressed themselves in shades of purple, orange, pink and green. Every being was the ruler of their own reality and existed solely within the make believe of their own minds, because they could dream it, it would become real here. One day a princess of her own reality, dressed in her typical attire of feathers and beads, having spent the morning in the usual way, cuddling with grizzly bears and lounging on rocks with otters came to lie in a field of wildflowers. Yearning for conversation but too com- fortable to seek it out she began to speak aloud to no one in particular. As she paused to collect her thoughts, the field that she lay in spoke back. The wild flowers that cocooned her had imagined themselves as her friends and the magic of the island had made it so. The wild flowers told her of a place where she could mine for stone to make the jewelry and elaborate trinkets that she so loved to dress herself in. This stone contained the essence of the island and was where new inhabitants were developed and honed over years, crafted from the very thing that made everything here so special. There have been rumors and questionable sightings of this place going all the way back through the centuries. Once, an explorer even claimed to have cap- tured some of this magical stone from the island itself but as he sailed away from the island the stone began to lose it’s color, the sparkle that was once so blinding began to fade and by the time he landed on the shores of his own home it had turned into nothing more than a plain gray rock. No one believed this traveler as he had no proof to speak of and his wild stories of vibrant color and self-aware foliage was chalked up to too many months on the open sea. His tales became the stuff of fiction, going the way of mermaids and dragons but he knew in his heart what he had seen and that he would never, ever forget it.
