My Fabric Collection Unveiled


I am delighted to finally share my new fabric collection from Northcott Fabrics. Most of the designs are based on my hand-dyed fabric, with a few prints added using motifs from one of my quilts. This line, part of the Artisan Spirit line, is called "Falling Leaves", and is available in two colourways, "Spring Rain" and "Autumn Harvest". The collection will be launched at Quilt Market in Pittsburgh in May. It should ship to stores for September. 

If you click on the photos below you can view a larger image.

Autumn Harvest:
I designed a very simple pattern to go with the collection. I think a beginner would be just fine creating this design. It can be done in either colourway.

    1. Thanks Daphne, you know I couldn't have done it without your EQ7 help. Your pattern is great too, funny I almost called mine Windswept as well, but then decided to stick with the name "Falling Leaves" because it is the same name as the fabric line.

  9. What is really cool is how well your collection reflects who you are (or where you're from) as an artist and fabric dyer. Congratulations!

    1. Thanks Jackie. The pattern will be available for stores to order from Northcott. Some stores who order fabric may order it, and others may not. I am hoping that in a few months I will have a shopping cart on my website for all my patterns.
