FYI: I wrote this post a week ago, and then had problems with the software that I’ve been working on for the whole time! Kudos to my brilliant husband, who finally figured it out! Which begs the question; am I really smart enough to be a blogger? I’m not sure, but for now I’ll carry on!
I have always loved quilting with Free Spirit fabrics! They have such a nice hand (feel of the fabric), and they have great designers, like Amy Butler, Tula Pink and Jane Sassaman. (Yes, I’ll get to those later!) Today we’ll take a little tour of some of their upcoming lines.
First up is a lovely little line from Amy Butler. It is called Dream Weaver, and has some great colors and textures. I’ve shown the persimmon color way, but it is also available in teals and pinks. It will be available this month.
The next line is Butterfly Garden by Dena Designs. It features pretty hand-painted butterflies and florals, with lovely backgrounds and coordinates. It is currently available.
I love Jane Sassaman. I still have a few pieces of hers that I acquired when I used to work at the quilt shop! (That will be 8 years this year!) This line is called Leaf Dance, and features her signature, beautiful florals with great accompanying pieces. It will be available February, 2016.
Next is a fun, whimsical line called Noe by Erin McMorris. It has some wonderful colors, and fun flowers. I love the free feeling of this line! It will be available this month.
Next is a more traditional-looking line. It is called Nostalgia and is by Jennifer Paganelli. It has lovely, soft colors and has a very romantic feel. Love the teals and pinks! It is currently available.
The next line is Sweetheart by David Walker. It is a soft, juvenile line, with cute, whimsical animals and lots of hearts. It would make a darling girl quilt in the pinks, and a boy quilt in the blues! It is currently available.
I’m not sure how to even categorize the next line. It is called Fibs & Fables and is designed by Anna Maria Horner. It was inspired by vintage fairytale illustrations, and features a picturesque scene, as well as colorful companion fabrics. It is currently available.
Next is another traditional, soft line called Lola. It is designed by Tanya Whelan. It has beautiful yellows, reds and blues. I could see a spring quilt using this fabric. It will be available this month.
The last line for today is called Eden and is by Tula Pink. Tula’s designs are always fun and colorful. I really like the colors in this line. Eden is currently available.
I hope you enjoyed this small tour of Free Spirit Fabrics! Their website also offers free patterns and other fun things to see. Check for their fabric at your local quilt shop!
