Sue Daley is certainly not the only Australian anymore featured at marked. I noticed a definite trend today on the market floor, sooo many Aussie’s here with new pattern designs and very new ideas on fabric design. At first I was a bit confused about the designs. Were they reproductions of 1940’s grandmother style aprons? They threw all different types of prints and stripes into together that just didn’t seem to gel but I couldn’t stop looking at them. Jen Kingwell is a new Moda designer that displays a perfect example of this eclectic look. I think you will either love it or hate it, as for me it is really growing on me. Her fabric comes out in April. To delve into Jen’s look pull her up on Instagram.
I noticed even some of the American designers had a similar style. The one I liked the most was Fig Tree Quilts Aloha Girl. I don’t know how she decided the name as I see no Hawiian theme to it but I do love the colors and prints in peaches, teals and navy. I liked the sample quilts she had, this fabric line comes out in March.
Another new Moda designer is Brenda Riddle, she created lovely florals in pale pink, grey and green going by the name of Ambleside. This line would make a stunning spring quilt, delivery is in March.
