Springwater

By Erin McMorris

Springwater was inspired by the harmony of nature found on my daily bike rides along the Willamette River on the Springwater Trail. This trail follows a former railway line and travels next to many parks and nature preserves. I love watching the seasons change, bringing new colors and varieties of flowers and plants along the way. It is a beautiful path that inspires me year round. The three color – ways, Meadow, River, and Field, pull from wildlife and intertwine with one another seamlessly just as in nature.

Petal & Vine

By Shannon Newlin

From the vine to the petal, every flower tells a story of beauty and uniqueness. This collection is inspired by a modern interpretation of the classic rose. The flowers vivid colors invite playfulness while their vines & petals create structure and strength. A contemporary, minimal raindrop pattern can be placed next to an intricate, vibrant flower design with ease. Hues of pink and blue play nicely together with subtle hints of neutral color for balance. The roses were formed with patterns within each petal, while the stems were drawn to create an organic flow of movement across the fabric. With so many floral designs in rich hues to choose from, sewing projects will flourish with energy and excitement. Looking forward to seeing what you might create!

De La Luna

By Tula Pink

The De la Luna Sisters are the not so distant cousins of the Von Black sisters, who made somewhat of a name for themselves a few years ago in collection called Night Shade. While the Von Black sisters drew their power from more earthly elements, the De la Luna sisters cull their magical gifts from the spirit realm. Once a year, as fall crashes into winter, the matriarchs of the De la Luna clan call on their ancestors, acting as vessels for their vast power. Maria De la Luna, the youngest of the three sisters can see into the great distance of the future as she draws her power from the most clairvoyant spirits in their lineage. She uses her prophetic sight to write letters to mean girls informing them of the exact time and place that they will die or sometimes when their boyfriends will break up with them depending on how mean they are. The middle Sister, Magnolia De la Luna, is perhaps the most cunning of the three although it’s hard to tell because she doesn’t wear glasses and everyone knows that the smartest people always wear glasses. Magnolia, Maggie for short, draws her power from the spirits of earth and bloom. She uses her potent power to cultivate and nurture vast gardens and lush landscapes for her highest paying clients. Oh, did I forget to mention that she runs a surprisingly successful landscape architecture firm in their prosperous south Texas town? The oldest sister, Venus De la Luna, the undisputed caretaker of the whole De Luna clan and best friend to her cousin Scarlet Von Black has a vary mysterious past. Venus leaves a trail of admirers where ever she goes. Great empires have fallen under her angelic gaze. Many great men sit alone in padded rooms spending endless days and boundless nights whispering her name to no one in – particular. She swears that she did nothing to encourage their favor and was only, ever, minding her own business. Just because these men choose to buy her gifts from her extensive online wish list is truly no fault of her own.

Georgia Blue

By Natalie Malan

Natalie Malan’s latest collection, Georgia Blue, will transport you to lazy summer afternoons on the front porch. The Sweet and whimisical florals evoke memories of sharing a pitcher of sweet tea with old friends, the Sprinkler’s Cascade Sparkling in the Sun. The glow of summer days and sultry perfume of summer nights coordinate beautifully in this fabric anthology of the South.

The exquisite detail and pleasing palette of this collection reflect Natalie’s childhood in Georgia. The navy blues are a tribute to growing up at Fort McPherson, its parade ground dotted with flowers, a perfect place to run free. You’ll recall cerulean skies and a hint of honeysuckle in this verdant medley. Let your imagination guide you as you piece these lovely patterns and hues into an heirloom.

Flora Folk

By Margot Elena

There they were, dusty and far older than me. Motifs, patterns and inspirations from the past, some dating back 100 years – yet far too fresh to be forgotten. These patterns and I became fast friends. Steadfast and true, enchanted by possibility and the promise of an optimistic and imaginative future together. Floral and folksy personalities, not the usual partners asking to play together, but instead friends who balance each other. Each friend with her own unique beauty, hidden strengths, special quirks, charm and sense of humor. A splash of pink to wake things up in our color – way called “Poppy,” is bright and clear. Now, let’s make the mood more quiet, more reflective and calm, a silvered story simply named “Lavender.” And finally, to sleep, perchance to dream, “Nightshades” in hues of blue and green call from the garden. Spend a lazy evening together with us, eight patterns Mable, Myrtle, Velma, and more, where we can all relax, laugh, tell secrets and create something wonderful an inspired and true friendship, indeed.

Zuma

By Tula Pink

Every 5 years or so my brain turns to salty liquid. I just can’t shake a longing for the ocean from my cozy studio in the land locked Midwest. Growing up on the California coast infused me with the spirit of the sea and to this day saltwater runs through my veins. The pull of the sea affects so many of us, throughout time even Gods have risen up to explain this phenomenon, Neptune and Poseidon reigned supreme over the ocean more than three thousand years ago.

It is the mystery more than anything that drives this fascination. The deepest oceans are like alien planets with sea life evolving unseen by human eyes. So why can’t a sea horse become a unicorn? I certainly cannot think of a reason. If it could happen then it could happen here. In vivid Technicolor with bioluminescent glow, you will find Spotted Eagle Sting Rays amongst the seaweed, Mini Blue Whales fraternizing with giant Sea Unicorns and a bloom of Jellyfish gently drifting with the current.

There is a lot going down here so take a deep breath and join me on the ocean floor where the water is cool and quiet and the water bound wonders never cease.

Arcadia

By Snow Leopard Designs

Ärcadia” is an ancient Greek word that refers to a vision of pastoralism and harmony with nature. In this new collection for Snow Leopard Designs, I have tried to recreate this same vision of pastoral harmony a s a chance to escape from the complexities of modern life and back into a simpler way of being.

I have based the design on images of great beauty that I have seen in my daily love while working down at my West Dorset seaside studio, and during my dinosaur bone hunting expeditions along the ancient Jurassic coast. Some of the designs are also inspired by antique documents In my archive.

There is so much beauty around us if we try to look with an artist’s eyes. I hope this new collection will help bring that same beauty into your projects and homes.

Garden Bright

By Sue Penn Designs

This collection began as a painting I started two years ago. I often start with a background that I let sit for a while until I decide what I want the finished painting to be. Of course, it rarely ends up looking anything like I originally intended! I love color and texture. I added layer after layer using stencils, spray paints, hand printed papers and inks until I had Garden Bright. The coordinating painting came much more easily. I tend to paint in the same palette most of the time so everything coordinated nicely. I love that these paintings are being printed on fabric and I cannot wait to see what quilters will create!

Vestige

By Bookhou (Anna Maria's Conservatory)

Our Vestige collection refers to the fragments, motifs and design elements gathered from past drawings and designs that we have collaged and overlaid to form new combinations. This new work continues my interest in hand drawn geometries and abstract forms that escape formality by overlapping in unexpected ways through juxtapositions of shape, scale and surprise.

Confettis

By Odile Bailloeul

Born from a voyage to Staphorst in the Netherlands, this collection is inspired by a traditional mixture of checks, polka dots and flowers, which characterize the traditional dress of the Staphorst community. However, under my paint brush the colors became more audacious, the flowers scatter and the checks mingle..
The fantasy that blows through this collection inspires joyful creations, fanciful clothes, cheerful and colorful patchwork.
Now we can dare the frou-frous, the unexpected combinations and some very feminine assemblages.
Choose the range “Fantasy” which evokes celebrations and lightness with its soft colors, or the range “Staphorst” elegant and unusual.

Savernake Road

By Monika Forsberg (Anna Maria's Conservatory)

Savernake Road, a street curved along a small part of Hampstead Heath, London was the starting point for my first fabric collection. I walk down this road most days and embrace all of my surrounding. Front gardens of wild and groomed flowers spilling onto the pavement, Victorian houses, and broken tile front paths. All of this makes me very happy! I hope you experience my happiness through my first collection as part of an amazing group of artist known as the Anna Maria’s Conservatory.

Peony Pagoda

By Corinne Haig

English Summer

By Anna Maria Horner (Anna Maria's Conservatory)

In my first collection as part of the conservatory, I am so pleased for it to be influenced by my travels, as it is an appropriate way to collaborate with the talented conservatory artist joining me from around the world, When I think of England, I think of flowers- especially after a beautiful summer stay there last year. Most notable in my journey was the chance to inhabit in a small 13th century Oxford shire Cottage. The mix of prints is meant to share the beauty of those naturalistic florals along with the ethnic and architectural inspirations that convey the special and unique place that is England. The scale and directions of the prints is perfect for fussy cutting quilts and creating beautiful garments and accessories and the palettes can inspire diverse directions towards modern or traditional quilting.

St. John

By Jennifer Paganelli

Once again, my paintings become the basis for St. John. St. John was a family destination We loved the solitude of the island. The beaches stretched for miles and seeing the ocean floor from glass bottom boats has us feeling very blessed. The stripe was actually a vase in one of my paintings. Moreover, we know the dot factor in any grouping is perfect for plushies, clothing, quilts, and more. I just know this amazing collections will increase your heart rate and provide you with hours of inspirations.. All you need to do is enjoy!
