New fabric is always such an inspiration. My mind starts going and creating as I started looking into Timeless Treasures new fabrics. Thank you to fabric designers that are being non-traditional and working to create new trends.
One of my favorite manufacturers is Timeless Treasures. Their Web site is very easy to navigate and they have great photos. My favorite designer for them is Alice Kennedy. She created some of the fabrics that I spoke about earlier this year: Lily and Strawberry Fields. I could kick myself in the rear for not purchasing the Strawberry Fields for my stash, but buying a house was more important at the time. There are a few shops that have it still online, none of the local shops near me purchased the lines.
Currently, this is what I am loving from Timeless.
Acorn: It’s bright, cheery, and funky in the brights line. The neutrals are more grown-up, trendy and could easily work into anyone’s home decor. If you visit Fat Quarter Shop you can find them under Fruity Acorn and Nutty Acorn. I must resist the Nutty Acorn…it fabrics would go well in my living room.
Berkley: Thanks again Alice, love this line. The Peacock Berkley is a great blend of yellow, blue, and green. There is a wonderful retro feel with coordinating stripes and paisleys. Bubblegum Berkley would be great for a young girl. It’s not babyish, but stylish and not too grown up.
Botanica: Lourdes Sanchez is wooing me with this combination of purples, grey, yellow and black. I think I could incorporate these colors into our bedroom. The purple isn’t too much especially since it is muted by the grey, black, and mustard yellow. Now I just need to find out when this line is available.
Okay back to the real world of work. I’ve got to afford my fabric obsession somehow.
