Fabric Tuesday #2
Hi Everyone! This weeks Fabric Tuesday focuses on some of the fabrics we offer from Moda. Moda are well known for their high quality fabrics and unique style and this selection is no exception. We love that Moda bring in designers with different styles, meaning a wide collection of the most unique and varied patterns. There's always something for everyone!
Grand Traverse Bay
Our first fabric collection is Grand Traverse Bay by designers Minick and Simpson. Minick and Simpson are two sisters who love everything textile and bring their own unique 'folk art' style to Moda Fabrics. They are also authors of best selling books and are a regular feature in various magazines, Quiltmania, American Patchwork & Quilting etc.
Grand Traverse Bay is an idyllic bay on Lake Michigan, known for its clear blue shimmering water and gold sandy beaches, as you can see from the fabric that has been inspired by it. Traverse City, located at the Bay is known for its local produce of cherry and wine production.
This is a collection by fabric designer Jan Patek. "Soft, intense and comforting" is how Jan describes the surrounding countryside to her Missouri home. This is where Jan has got her inspiration for this collection and it shows throughout the collection due to its lush colours.
Desert bloom is another design by fabric designers Sherri and Chelsi. Inspired by the 'desert bloom' and mixing their favourite colours, the collection encompasses geometric patterns and south western American motifs. It’s a collection that comes alive due to the inspiration they got from the life in the desert.
Created by Holly Taylor, this collection is inspired by, yes you've guessed it, country roads. Holly has done a remarkable job in designing a fabric that provides warmth on an Autumn day and brings out the emotions of ‘home’ in all of us. Utilising natures natural colours etc. Country Road brings Autumnal colours into your home.
Designed by Sweetwater for Moda, Treehouse Club inspiration is best described in their own words “While standing in the kids’ department of a favourite clothing store, we spotted a little t-shirt that read “The Tree House”. That was it! We added the word “club” because everything is better in a club, right? Sometimes we get lucky and find just the right theme, and that makes the designing process so much fun..“ Sometimes inspiration comes in the most unlikely of places! Every print within the collection is relatable to the treehouse!
Wing and Leaf
Wing Leaf by Gina Martin follows on form her previous collection, Wren and Friends. Gina has brought her garden into her fabric from butterflies, flowers and birds. A bright colourful collection that will always put a smile on your face.
