If you have been afraid that Modern Flora was the only fabric I would ever sell or talk about again, relax. Though it is near and dear to my heart, we will continue to carry other designers and we've got some tremendous fabrics coming on the horizon.
That crazy chick, Anna Maria Horner, has her home dec line, Drawing Room coming out in March. It will be a 54" wide cotton sateen and is coming in two palettes, Eccentric and Nostalgic. Anna Maria's art is incredible and her color choices in this line are just cool. I have a feeling if you put these fabrics in your home, it would be like getting a little dose of Anna Maria energy every day.
Another fabric designer you might have heard of, Amy Butler, has her new line Midwest Modern, coming in March or April. This line is a 45" wide, quilting weight collection and features some traditional Amy Butler florals, but some edgy graphics as well. And in great colorways, as usual.
Anna Griffin is coming out with her line Sierra in the next couple of months. Her fabric continues to intrigue me. Though her "signature" look is beautiful, it's a little too traditional and soft for me. But then she comes up with some really interesting designs like this. When I saw the samples, the beiges and browns have a real kraft paper look to them, so I'll be interested to see the real fabric.
Rosemarie Lavin has designed a new line for Windham Fabrics, Rhapsody, available mid-March. I know nothing about the designer, but I was drawn to the fabric because of it's rich colors and graphic twist. It looks to me like it was inspired by the Pennsylvania Dutch motifs, but I like the modern take she took on it.
Okay, so that is your preview of what is coming up. In the meantime, I will continue to do some more Modern Flora projects.
