Spring Quilt Market 2013: Kashmir Fabric Line

LogoKashmir

 

Spring Quilt Market 2013 was held in Portland, Oregon this time around. I debated with myself a lot over whether or not to go (and, in fact, changed my mind about every 10 minutes.) Since I live on the East coast, it would have been a long trip, and the timing wasn’t quite right… I (finally) decided not to go….

But just because I wasn’t there doesn’t mean my fabric wasn’t…. My newest line for Henry Glass Fabrics, called Kashmir, made its official debut! I am really excited about this line, we worked really long and hard on it. (You know, some lines seem to just come together very easily, and others seem to take a ton of tweaking to get them just right. This was definitely a “tweaker”…..) I think this might be my favorite line that I have designed so far.

Peacocks Everywhere!

The peacock craze is building! We are seeing them everywhere- on bedding, on dishes, even clothing. You just can’t escape them…

I love the colors in this line- they are jewel-tones, but the line is not too dark. I added some pretty green and turquoise to break up the dramatic navy blue. The line includes a  panel which you could use as is for a wall hanging, or cut the rectangles apart to rearrange into a quilt, pillows, etc.

(and don’t the colors remind you of all the lovely prom dresses in yesterday’s photo??)

This line has a paisley print, which I have never included in a line before. I love it! I painted all of those paisley motifs separately, by hand, and then arranged them into a repeat pattern in my PhotoShop program. Below is some of my artwork for the line:

Of course, this line will be great for quilts:

But I also think it will make some beautiful home decor projects. How about making a paisley shower curtain for your bathroom?

Or a lovely skirt adorned with peacocks! That would really be eye-catching, don’t you think?

    What a wonderful fabric line. I can’t imagine having to paint all of those elements separately – it must have taken a long time! You have more patience than I do!!!

      It doesn’t require patience when you love what you do! :)

      Thanks, Sharon! I can’t wait to get actual fabric to start playing with! But that will take awhile…

      Thank you, Judy. I love the colors, too! Normally, indigo blue isn’t one of my favorite colors, but I love the way it works with the other colors in the line :) It makes a great neutral.
