Fabric designers...

Are showing up in some new places. I bought these plates at Crate and Barrel and found out they were designed by Kate Spain!

You know her! The designer of the wonderful Verna line for Moda.

I also found Denise Schmidt is now designing quilts for Pottery Barn. I remember looking at "Flea Market Fancy" and "Kate's Jump Rope" when they were out years ago. I actually have one piece from each of the lines on my shelf. Since I never bought any more and now wish I did...

Her newest line "Hope Valley" has now been added to my collection of fabric. Not sure what I'm going to do with it. I know it will be something modern!

If you miss Flea Market Fancy - there is a petition going to get Free Spirit to reprint it. You'll find that here.

The quilts she designed for Pottery Barn. Click on the link and watch the "Modern Quilt Design" video. It's great!


  1. Oh, I think I need those plates. Are they in the store there? Love you!

  2. It's about time the rest of the world discovered how talented quilt designers are! Love your new site.


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
