Please note that all of the fabric listed below is available from a variety of Etsy sellers so I haven't linked it to one particular shop.
I discovered two new (to me) designers last week when searching on SewFreshFabrics. The first, Jane Dixon, is new to textile design but she has worked as a graphic artist for many years (she also sells cards and prints through her website). In addition to her designs, I also love that she is a self-taught artist and relocated from a warmer climate to the Chicago area (Go Midwest!). Here are some of her prints:
|Zig Zag on Grey/Green from Primitiva by Jane Dixon for Andover Fabrics|
|Desert Bloom by Jane Dixon Large Cactus Teal for Andover fabrics|
|Circles on Orange from Primitiva by Jane Dixon for Andover Fabrics |
|Wavy Stripes with Purple and Orange from Primitiva by Jane Dixon for Andover Fabrics|
I had to show that last one again because I think it is just incredible. It may be that my summer skirt is calling to me . . .
The second designer is Khristian Howell. She's been on the fabric scene a bit longer and has collections with Robert Kaufman and Anthology. I prefer her Anthology prints:
|Wired in Love from Rendezvous by Khristian Howell for Anthology fabrics|
|"The Woodlands" Cotton Fabric by Khristian A Howell for Anthology -Woodgrain in Teal|
|Theory by Khristian A Howell for Anthology fabrics|
|High Society Hannah by Khristian Howell for Anthology fabrics|
|Theory Vines Sierra by Khristian A Howell for Anthology fabrics|
She also has this print that I may have to get to make little dresses for my girls:
|The Woodlands Collection by Khristian Howell|
What I like about both of these designers is that the way they use color and lines seems to give texture to the fabric. And all of these fabrics are from quilting weight fabric collections so they come in other colors and with coordinating contrast fabrics. Nice!
