for Quilting Treasures
Retail: n/a
For over a decade, artist Ragnar has provided design and art direction for virtually every major studio in Hollywood, but not until now has his design talent been applied to fabric. For his first-ever collection, Ragnar found inspiration in the pattern and color of Mid-Century modern design. Prints include abstract, vintage-inspired shapes, geometrics, and—of course—starbursts, all in shades of brown, turquoise, olive, orange, and gold. The collection will be available in spring 2013.

from Betz White
Retail: $12.95 each
This new collection features five super-sweet sewing patterns, including three for creating stuffed felt animals (Poppy and Pip Penguin, Flurry and Fluff Polar Bears, and Slippy and Slide Seals), as well as the Polar Babies Quilt and Pillow pattern and Polar Pals Felt Appliqué, both of which feature adorable felt-appliqué animals. Each downloadable pattern includes 12-page printable PDF instructions with color photos, detailed diagrams, and assembly directions, and were all created in support of the National Wildlife Federation.

from Martingale & Co.
Retail: $26.99
This much-anticipated release features 19 exceptional quilts—all with a modern aesthetic—from many of the blogging ‘verse’s most well-known and talented designers. The book encourages readers to experiment with concepts like negative space, improvisational piecing, and “purposeful imperfection.” It also includes each blogger’s take on modern quilting, a bit about their quilt and design process, and information on their individual blogs.

from Amanda Murphy Design
Retail: $10.50
Introduced at fall Market, this new scrap-friendly quilt pattern uses strip piecing and appliqué to create a playful wave and bubble design. The baby-sized quilt finishes to 38” x 48 ½,” but—because the design is based on a single block—can easily be adjusted to any desired size. Designer Amanda Murphy suggests trying trapunto or cuddle fabric as a fun alternative to creating the quilt’s bubbles. The quilt is pictured in the Seaglass color story from Murphy’s Bella collection for Blend Fabrics.

for Art Gallery Fabrics
Retail: n/a
The latest collection from designer Bari J. takes its inspiration from the high society of 1920s’ Europe, and includes florals—both delicate bouquets and detailed garden prints—feathers, art-deco-inspired geometrics, and tea-time imagery. Also included in the collection is Grandeur, which combines botanical designs and teapots in a cross-stitch print that can be stitched directly on top. Bonus: Bari J. has teamed to Aurifil to create a coordinating 12-spool box of 12wt Cotton Make thread to be used with the collection.
