WHAT'S NEW THIS MONTH
Tutti Fruitti is a fabulous, fresh-picked collection of fruit designs by Maude Asbury. Lemons, pineapples, cherries, bananas and watermelons scatter a colorful canvas of green pink, red, yellow and blue. This deliciously fun collection is a recipe for sewing success.
In Jubilee, Melody Miller imagined what it would be like to get ready for a fun summery block party. She painted and drew watercolor balloons, tall city buildings, and retro makeup, including elements like halftone dots and offset registration as a nod to vintage screenprinting. She also used layered painterly transparencies, neons and metallics for added texture, and included some of her much-loved vintage motifs.

Sleep Tight is a fun exploration of what babies might dream about. Sarah’s signature illustrations of animals come to life as bunnies, owls, tigers and more, and the neutral color palette is on point with the current trend of modern nurseries. Supporting prints feature gold and pearlescent metallic inks and have a versatility that extends well beyond sewing for babies.

In a story that Rashida created, ‘Kujira and Star’ tells the tale of a baby whale named Kujira (which means whale in Japanese) and his best friend, a starfish named Star. Star is so sad that he has only traveled around his little reef and longs to see more of the ocean and what wonders exist in the world above him. Kujira decides to take his best friend on a little tour around the waters of Japan! We wonder what they’ll see!

Alexia draws inspiration from a Mexican flower market in her newest collection, Flower Shop. In a perfect follow-up to her previous collection, Alexia once again uses hand painting, stamping and drawing to achieve the richness and depth of a handcrafted look, then combines it with the watercolor paintings she is known for. Featured motifs include folk embroidery, amulets, and wildflowers.

Sewing is fundamentally an act of love. Starting with heart-motif dresses and feedsacks from her extensive personal vintage fabric stash, Kim Kight created a collection that offers a chance to literally sew love into your creations. A sweet poem along the selvage is perfect for quilt backings, garment tags, or anywhere you might want to leave a little love note.

A known doodler, no piece of paper is ever safe when Jen Allyson has a pen in her hand. Luckily her love of doodling, crafting, and all things artistic led her down the path to becoming a designer.
