Chateau Rouge and Juggling Summer

Look what I will be unpacking early next week.

Juggling Summer by Zen Chic

Overlaying laces, dancing balls, juggling circles, nesting labyrinths - let your eyes explore the richness of Juggling Summer's intricate prints. They give you all the colors of a late summer day - the color stories range from rich jewel tones to classic, decadent naturals. With a refined European design esthetic, Zen Chic's premier collection for Moda is a sophisticated line not only for the modern quilter.

Chateau Rouge by French General

The Chateau Rouge collection was inspired by an old brick chateau we stayed in one summer in a small town, just north of Aix-en-Provence, called St. Remy. The chateau was built in 1789 and throughout the house were armoires that were brimming with old French textiles. I spent days looking through each of the armoires and sketching ideas and color combinations. Outside each window was a field of sunflowers - their brightness seemed to light up the house. The subtle mustard yellows mixed with the old reds - reminds me of the colors at the chateau and my summer in France.

  1. I love it when you showcase your new fabric ranges with a little blurb about how the collection came about. I will be onto this French General range.
