New Fabric - Paula Nadelstern

At the International Fall Quilt Market in Houston this year there were some amazing displays showing the newest in fabric, books, notions and everything quilting.

 Paula Nadelstern always has a great display that never disappoints. Last year at market Paula had created this balls using her new fabrics for Benartex and used  beads, sequins and more to embellish them. When I saw them I just stopped, they were so beautiful. This year Paula has incorporated these balls/spheres with  several quilts designed by different quilters using her fabric collections for Benartex. I for one had always loved Paula's fabrics but had the problem of not knowing just what to do with them. It was great to see the different quilts, in a variety of styles to see how the fabric could be used. It was a great display and below are some photos that I took.

New Fabric - Anastasia by Leesa Chandler

At the International Quilt Market in Houston Leesa Chandler released details of her new Culture Club Fabric Collection: Anastasia for Robert Kaufman. This will be the third collection as part of the Culture Club Story.
Anastasia is inspired by the textiles and architecture of historic Russia. Paisleys, Folkart Roses, Temples, Glassware and Traditional Costumes all played a part in the inspiration behind the range.
Leesa has once again created several patterns which were designed to use the fabrics from this collection including this cutie mouse and pin cushion
 This collection has two different colourways and will be available in shop in February 2013.
 This is the panel that is part of this new collection
 Love this stripe fabric.
The mauve/purple colourway. Both the colourways do have the gold accents on the fabrics.

 This was a fabric pattern that I was unsure of then saw that it could be cut into square blocks, and of course I start thinking of quilting designs it could be used in.

 The allover paisleys are one of my favourite patterns in this new collection.
Keep an eye out for this to be in store in February.
