Birds & Branches started out as a fun, monochromatic exercise one April afternoon and blossomed into a celebration of avian splendor in every color of the rainbow. As I paint, I imagine the secret lives of these jewel-toned birds, because just like us, each one is an individual. Has Sergio alighted on this branch on his way to aerial tango lessons? Does Olga question the wisdom of indulging in one last juicy, golden berry? Henri is clearly going to a poetry reading in his jaunty beret, and as for the rest, I guess we’ll never know for sure—but we can always have fun imagining their colorful lives!
Reminiscent of a safari trip through the jungle, Wild offers a bold and whimsical take on Leah’s favorite untamed creatures and flora. Inspired by her love of nature, Wild features tigers, elephants, zebras, lions, and cranes as well as her signature pieces of nature and geometric prints in vibrant colors. Not for the tame, Leah’s latest fabric adventure feels unrestrained, curious, and daringly wild.
In places far far away, time moves slow. We are in touch with the land. We watch the sun set. We look to nature for guidance. We spend our days working with our hands, weaving, and putting love into the things we craft. Inspired by Elizabeth’s travels and eternal wanderlust, this collection is a window to Faraway Places.
This collection illustrates a beautiful early morning walk in the woods, when the newly damp air is greeted by waves of dancing mushroom blooms and graceful garden snails. The collection was named after the small wonders under the timber trees.
“Fanciful is a homage to blooms and blossoms, inspired by my late grandmother, Grace, who loved all things floral and fancy, especially roses. Her style influenced my love of color, fashion, and design from an early age. She loved dressing up in bright floral prints, had an impressive collection of elegant hand-painted floral teacups and a house full of artificial floral arrangements.
This collection is a celebration of the shapes, lines, and colors of those plant kingdom standouts and I feel certain Grandma would approve of this collection of prints, which offers a more sophisticated turn from my previous collections.”
With Sarah’s ever growing love of plants and nature, Terrestrial focuses her thoughts on the smallest details of plants to a large living wall. She loves to see a rigid concrete surface taken over by climbing, creeping, sprouting organisms. Closing in on a mossy tree, imagining the lichen as an embellishment of sequins and stitches on a rough trunk. Terrestrial is inspired by lines and marks, organic and manmade.
Soft colors and adorable animals make this collection a necessity. Printed on our ever so plush cotton flannel, these sweet creatures make the best cozy apparel or blankets you could imagine. They’re so great in fact, that we decided to add the same prints on quilter’s weight. The options are endless! Included in this collection are 4 solids, each in flannel and quilter’s weight, that coordinate perfectly with the three prints.
‘Whitehaven’ tells a story of an English summer with its vast skies, pretty meadows and gentle flowers. Inspired by memories of long summer holidays as a child, each pattern is named after a place in England that has a particular meaning for me and evokes a special memory. The colour palette is bring yet soft, giving a feeling of warmth and sunsine.
‘Sow and Sew’ was inspired by the move towards creative lifestyles, sustainability, taking time for yourself, and the simple joy of growing and making things. The imagery is based on new growth and motifs related to allotments, vegetable patches and herb gardens; small ways to connect with nature and the outdoors. These are represented in a clean and contemporary way, with fresh, modern palettes that invite new sewing projects – available on quilter’s cotton and canvas.
