fabric market

Lucy and I are here in Houston and the weather is a surprise with a cold breeze blowing. Today we had "schoolhouse". This is the day where we get to see new products, fabric ranges and patterns. Designers give small demonstrations and talks about their products and inspiration. I attended several but Lotta Jansdotta got me thinking when she asked the question "do you know exactly what your customers want" She went on to say ask "what is their favourite colour" . I realised I don't know, so the question to you is


You may give more than one answer because I  would not be able to restrict myself to one. I would love to know and let's see if the fabric shelves at amitie reflect your thoughts.

Green of any sort. Lucky you to be a such a wonderful place - better than Christmas, I would think. Enjoy!

Do I really need to say it?
Bronwyn said…
I love Raspberry Red (no other red! sorry Andi) and Deep Deep Sea Blue, with a bit of turquoise-y aqua thrown in....okay I do also love Soft Dove Grey and a really striking Pink...oh and I do like Chartreuse (if only for the name!)
Tania said…
Er, don't the Amitié shelves house EVERY colour? And isn't that always why I have such a tough time choosing?
amitietextiles said…
Yep Tania we have every colour but surely a few more won't hurt, especially if its hot pink and that correct Andi?
my favourite colour is blue........take heaps of pics..........

My favourite colour is PINK now:))) But I do love red and yellow (find it very hard to find yellow fabric) And of course navy blue.

Blue and green. Whoever said "blue and green should never be seen" needs their head read! Think leaves against a blue sky or the blue-green of the ocean.

Susie said…

Delilah - Lucy's Journey - Part 1

A fair while ago, when working through the Delilah patterns I thought "yeah... I might just make this".
After a quick brain storm with the Boss Lady/Mum, I decided why not! But it has to be different, we thought because we have no use for 2 quilts that look very similar. So, what could I do? That's when my eyes landed on my always growing stash of Liberty.
March arrived and so did our stock of templates, and off I went...
My, my, my Delilah.

You have brought me to a few firsts so I think some confessions need to me made.

1. I have never pieced a curve.

Nope...  No sir! Not one.
Curves have always scared me. I could never wrap my head around them but the Boss Lady...

She loves them!

I mean... she really LOVES them!

Or maybe she just loves cruel and unusual punishment like this block?!
Just an idea.

Curves conquered.
But wait, there's more (confessions and curves!)

2.  I don't* own an iron.

Ha. Yup!
I managed to get to a few days shy of 30 years old without…

Delilah - Lucy's Journey - Part 3

Hello friends,
Half way into this quilt and with every stitch I fall more and more in love. With each block completed, I drag all my blocks out again and lay them out. I posted this image recently on Instagram (@lucycarsonkingwell) of my 'Design Floor' to gauge where it's all heading and it's looking okay!!

Delilah has been a test - I have learnt many new skills and it is definitely the most technical quilt I have taken on to date... but it's not hard! The templates are fantastic. I swear working with acrylic templates makes it quite challenging to go back to temp-plastic! These templates are ensuring my blocks come out correct, every time.
Month 5 brought us North Star. "Woo hoo. Straight lines!" I hear the masses cheer as they open their mail!
I knew it was time to start focusing on other colours other than pink and aqua. I tend to gravitate towards these two colours because they seem to go with everything to me... especially in the Liberty of London f…

A little eye candy

A very lovely, Susan, e-mailed us her version of JKD Green Tea and Sweet Beans.

We love it!
She made it at a shop in USA called Sewing Party. Amazing!
