"In the spirit of collage the debut collection by Carrie Bloomston is filled with letters, textures and hipster imagery .. with an essence of handmade and artful."
Collage by Carrie Bloomston for Windham Fabrics
Another fat quarter bundle that arrived by mail this week - also from Quilt Market - is Collage by Carrie Bloomston. This collection has previously been a feature here by way of a quilt, but I thought it might be nice (for me) to catalog and for everyone to see detailed images of the fabrics.
Starting with some of my favorites, these typify the collage look for me; the cutting and pasting of glued paper on a surface. And I like them a little more so because it is a newspaper/text print.
Similarly, I imagine that these newspaper and text prints will be popular fabrics and often used.
There are several favorite prints in this collection, and these collage dots are no exception - I particularly like the center fabric (above) with neutral background. These three prints are border prints with a row of birds along the printed selvage; therefore by chance only one of my fat quarters features the birds. But as I really love the simple collage dot I am definitely not complaining!
Collage by Carrie Bloomston is expected to arrive in the following stores in July 2013.
Collage by Carrie Bloomston is now available from:
