We are already in love with this cottony-fresh collection that just arrived on the studio doorstep. Here are a few sun-dappled shots of Littlebury for David Textiles under the CathyLoo brand, which will be debuting at Quilt Market in October. Right around the corner!
This group is particularly quilter-friendly with lots of small and medium-scale patterns perfect for piecing.
When creating the art, we were looking for a Pennsylvania-Dutch-meets-Americana-meets-modern quilting theme. We really hit it this time, with a collection that works for both juvenile/baby quilts and nurseries, as well as everyday projects for the home. (There are actually three more patterns that haven’t yet come off the press in royal blue and navy that add a bold streak to the group as a whole. Here’s a close-up of the one 4×4 inch square of the navy “Pennsylvania Blooms” pattern that we do have:
and the seamless “Map of Littlebury” print in robin’s egg blue.
and the drawing on paper and vellum and a few color trials from the early stages of design:
and another sketch that eventually became the loose floral “Apple Blossoms” pattern for the collection:
And now, since we are swimming in yards of Littlebury goodness over in the Austin studio, a Littlebury giveaway!
To enter to win this fat quarter bundle of Littlebury, please leave a comment sharing with us a color and/or animal you would most like to see in a fabric collection for Spring/Summer 2014. (We’re at the drawing board already and would love to hear from you!)
A winner will be randomly selected in one week at noon CST on Friday, September 28th.
See you then!
