eclectic elements spring quilt market 2017…

earlier this month we attended spring quilt market to debut the first half of my new dapper collection of eclectic elements fabric with coats.  inspired by worn textiles of a merchant tailor with the stylish nostalgia of timeless typography, dapper captures a classic era in this new collection.  the pattern and imagery are woven together in a neutral palette with a hint of faded color to inspire the most sophisticated and eclectic creations…

the booth at market is designed to showcase these new designs in a setting that pulls together vintage finds with unique creativity (love the little vests to show the new designs)…

with the help of my talented team and amazing sewing artists, the projects feature everything from bags, pillows, and pin cushions to lampshades, furniture, and of course stunning quilts…

the possibilities of fabric is truly endless.  i find myself amazed at every market when i see my designs virtually come to life with the amount of time, skill, and details put into each piece…

be sure to check your local fabric store for eclectic elements as the new dapper collection joins the existing line of foundations, wallflower, and correspondence fabric designs.  we’d love to see what you create using eclectic elements fabric so be sure to tag #eclecticelements when posting your creations on social media so we can check them out…

guess it’s time i learn to sew don’t you think?…t!m

    The stand looked amazing and the fabrics are just gorgeous – I love Richele’s little waistcoats, they showcase the fabrics beautifully! So pleased we can now buy the fabric in the UK too!

    Wonderful! And–please say you’ll come out with a line of holiday fabrics…your look would be so different from the (many) formal or kiddie-look holiday patterns and prints out there…I hoard your vintage-style holiday papers; their fabric counterparts would make great tree skirts, stockings, pillows, throws, mantel scarves, napkins, table runners…etc. 😉

    Beautiful!!! Would love to see you combine your fabric line with your paper crafting line and design crop bags with these fabrics…not all paper crafters like hot pink and rhinestones.

  25. The fabrics are gorgeous! Wish I sewed, too! Your display is drool worthy, and samples are all AMAZING!

    Yes, Tim, it’s time for you to come over to the dark side and learn how to sew! Let’s do some beginner projects so others can learn to sew too! Maybe a quilt block pillow?
    I will be stalking the fabric stores for the new dapper fabrics!
