Summersville!

I was the lucky recipient this week of a bundle of yet to be released fabric by Lucie Summers. 

The bundle consists of a selection of prints and solids from the Summersville fabric collection by Lu Summers for Moda.  Lu has been designing, hand screen printing and selling (Etsy Store :: Summersville) her own designs for some time now, but this is her first commercial collection for Moda Fabrics. 


Lu's designs are all hand drawn, and are inspired by the textures and shapes found in the (UK) country side where she lives and her growing collection of thrift store ceramics.  The Summersville collection comes in five distinct color palettes: Coal, Bus Red, Leaf, Orange Zest, and Seafoam.


Each color palette is complemented with a carefully matched solid fabric:  Bella Solids (Moda) in Black, Christmas Red, Kelly Green, Betty's Orange, and Horizon Blue.

Congratulations on your debut fabric collection, Lu.  I hope to (and somehow I think we will!) see much more of your work!

The Summersville fabric range is marked for arrival in stores in April, so any day now!
