New Fabric Line!

Houston Quilt Market is here and you know what that means...

My first fabric line(s) have been introduced!


I'm thrilled to be able to finally share with you... A Vintage Autumn.


and here are the Vintage Blacks.


On the advertising cards, they are only showing the tan colorway.  Each of the fabrics pictured also comes in blue, rust and a darker tan.

Here are some examples.





Two quilt designs featuring my fabric line will also be available as a free downloadable pattern on the Blank Quilting website.  I'm not sure when exactly but I'm assuming that it will be sometime closer to when the actual line will start shipping to shops in April of 2016.

Here is A Vintage Autumn Quilt #1...


And here is A Vintage Autumn Quilt #2...


Four coordinating 108" backing fabrics will also be available as part of the line.

Please let me know what you think of them.  I hope you like them as much as I do.  


What an amazing ride this has been!


Happy stitching!

So cute!

Quilt Hollow said...

I had to go back and read again...when I saw only the one red I was stumped. But now I see all colorways and you nailed it with getting blacks in there! I'm looking forward to seeing these in person so I can "pet" them. This is such awesomeness! I'll be watching IG to see if there is some "chatter" over them too. I'll keep you posted if I do.

It seems so many of the fabrics these days are brighter fresher looking colors that don't go with a thing in my home....thank you for keeping prim alive!

Lori said...

these are wonderful. I love the tan panel

Criterion Ranch said...

Audrey said...

Congratulations of a fabulous new line. The colours are rich and warm. I want to make a quilt right now but I guess I will have to wait until April. I can't wait to add extra yardage to my stash as well. I am really glad wide backings have been included in the collection.

Colleen Gander said...

Missed seeing your post as I was away but I am bowled over. The line reflects you very well, and my mind is churning with ideas, not just what to do with this group but also how the dark warm colours will fill in my holes. Too many times, I find myself looking for neutrals or blacks and these are perfect. Congratulations to you, you nailed it! Not just for you but for all of us too.
