Today is a fun day for me – I get to introduce my next fabric line! It’s called Home for Harvest. I have wanted to do a fall fabric line for a long time. I love fall quilts, as you may have already seen on my blog in the past (click here). Many of my fall quilts look too dark for my house now, so I really need to make a whole new batch of fall quilts. The problem was, I could never find any fall fabric lines in the brighter colors. I ended up just pulling things from my stash when I made this quilt last year:
These colors became the inspiration for that fall fabric line I had been wanting to do. I also wanted the line to work for both traditional and modern quilters, just like this quilt does.
I worked on the line early this summer and my design director Karen got it into production right away so we could show it at Fall Quilt Market. With market this weekend, I now have permission to share a sneak peek at the prints from the line. This is what the cover of the sales card looks like
Inside that cover are the images of the CAD drawings of all the prints
There is also a panel print with the line. This is something that Henry Glass has encouraged me to add to my lines. Honestly, my first thought was, I don’t usually use panels. My design director took the artwork from my Here Fishy line and made a panel for me, just to show me how it would work. It ended up being my favorite part of the line! (you can see that panel here). Since then I have been trying to work one in. It helps them sell the line and shows how all the prints can be used together.
The free project shows how I envision using the panel. (The free project is on the cover of the sales card, which is a few images above)
I received the first set of strike-offs, which gives me a little glimpse of what it will look like on fabric. At this stage, there are still a lot of changes to be made and the colors all have to be tweaked, but I thought I would share a peek at them anyways.
The line is previewing at Quilt Market this weekend. If you are a shop owner, please stop by the Henry Glass booth to preview the line! Click here to view the images on Henry Glass’s website or to download the free project. The line will be available in shops next May.
Thanks for stopping by!
