My four-year old seemed to catch my excitement and one by one went through the aisle asking, “Is this Ana Davis? How ’bout this?? Is this one yours???”" Sorry, kiddo, they’re not all my designs… but thanks for the optimism.
Here are all of the prints from Pippa, my newest fabric collection. Pippa will be shipping any day now. Hawthrone Threads and Fat Quarter Shop already have it listed on their websites. You can find other websites and a local retailers on the Blend “Where to Buy” page.
The print names, from top to bottom: Sunburst, Nectar, Web, Ikat Dot, Shade Garden, Bellingham, and Sunstar.
I am really excited that these two groups of artwork were selected by the amazing team over at Post-it®. These collections represent both sides of my art brain: One side loves the details of vintage things and the bright, bold colors of Indian textiles; The other side craves clean, modern design and loves Scandinavian influences. I find these themes repeated in surprising ways throughout my portfolio. I’m thrilled that the Post-it® team saw something they liked in both of these aesthetics.
The group of art the Post-it® team pulled together follows this trend of varied aesthetics, and they have put together a line of products with contributions from a huge array of talented artists: Sorry You’re Happy, Iza Pearl, Yinfan Huang, Khristian A. Howell, Sisters Gulassa–so many great designers, I can’t list all of them, so check out the new Post-it® Signature Series website and see what I mean!!!
Even though we Chicagoans have experienced some serious rain, temperature changes, and flooding this week, I am optimistic that picnic season will, in fact, be here soon. To celebrate, I have sewed wine totes for friends and family.
The pattern comes with a lunch tote option, so I bought insulated liner so I can make that as well. Each version of the pattern has different pockets. The wine tote has exterior pockets on the side, and is divided inside so that your two wine bottles don’t clank together too much. So cute!!!
