Our New and Exciting Designers

With the International Quilt Market coming up very fast that will be held in Houston Texas, it is the appropriate time to recognize our new FreeSpirit designers that will be presenting their new fabrics at market.

Our first designer that will be introduced at market presents a "unexpected and exuberant designs in brights and pastels". Melissa Averinos will be presenting her Sugar Snap collection which is sure to be popular due to it's uniqueness and choice of colors. Guaranteed to have a great booth at Market!

Next we have a very popular designer who is mostly known for being a great designer on the show Project Runway, who has recently stepped into the realm of fabric. This would be Jay McCarroll with his upcoming collections Woodland Wonderland and Garden Friends. These collections are very different in the sense that it has opened the door into a new sector of fabrics. What I mean by this is he finds an interesting and exciting way to incorporate such things as ants, bees all the way to tomatoes in his collections of fabric! Jay McCarroll will also be having a booth at Market that will be exciting to see!

Showing a great collection of fun and fantasy would be David Walker with his two new collections, Robots and Spring Fling. Robots is a "Charming collection of stars, rockets, robots and fun". His Spring Fling collection is quite a contrast to the Robots collections consisting of sweet characters such as butterflies, ducks, bees and bears. His collections are sure to inspire a fun children's project.

This designer has brought small print patterns to FreeSpirit that are quite refreshing for a lot of quilters. They are fun patterns that you can not only make amazing quilts with, but many other projects around the home. Jenean Morrison is presenting her Moondance collection that is sure to get the creative minds churning!

Last but not least Annette Tatum is introducing her first collection also. Annette Tatum’s debut collection of "floral, ticking stripes, and geometrics introduce a fresh pastel palette with vintage inspired charm." This collection goes by the name House and is sure to excite people that will be seeing it at International Quilt Market.

All of the collections will be coming soon to the FreeSpirit website where you will be able to explore each collection. Also, check out their blogs and websites for more information on the designers and to see inspiring pictures and projects! Best Blogger TipsShare/Bookmark

I can't wait to get my hands on these fabrics!! Melissa is a dear and I'm thrilled for her (and my customers have been pestering me for her fabric already)! :)
I've been wondering who was behind the House line so thanks for the information!
And finally a boy fabric (the robots) that is all boy!
