Victorian Modern coming soon!

fabric, quilting

In last night’s post I explained that for our first line with Andover, Victorian Modern, we wanted to design a line of fabric with not just color stories but also value stories. We see a lot of fabrics we love that contain in one print very darks and very lights. These fabrics can be hard to work with if you want to create any depth in your quilt or any luminosity. So we decided to design prints that are easier for quilters to use in patterns that require lights and mediums. The next line will include some darks and more saturated colors as well.

The quilt shown is called Parlor Games and will be a free pattern on Andover’s site. We’ll be kitting Parlor Games as well. For those of you who have renewed your subscriptions to Modern Quilts Illustrated or who will look for it at your local quilt shop, there will be a project using Vic Mod in Issue #4 IF the mill in Korea gets us the sample yardage in time. As always, it’s a guessing game as to whether or not it will make our printing deadline to get magazines before Market.

  1. Ooooh! Nice. I am so glad that you and Bill are getting the recognition you deserve. Things that are hard won are so much sweeter.
    Take time to dance!

    Thank you for persisting, and staying true to your vision.

  2. I have to be honest. When I first heard the name of the line, I thought, “Urgh. I”m not fond of Victorian prints.”

    Now that I see them, I love them. They are so radiant and gorgeous! Thanks for the reminder that I always need to keep my mind wide open.

  3. I hope that there will be some shops in Northern California that will carry your new fabric line as I just love what you are doing and the fabric is so great.

  4. Hi Weeks – Modern Quilt Illustrated #1 provided the basis for the quilt I’ve almost finished – it’s a tweak on the pears. Any ideas on when the next one will be out? I understand that you have not been consistently well – just excited to see the next issue. Thanks and happy holidays.
