big news part 1: sweet tooth

I am very excited to announce my first fabric collection to be launched this Friday at the Minneapolis International Quilting Market! I have been working very hard on this project and am very happy with the results. The company who is representing me is called Anthology Fabrics and are based out of LA. I believe their philosophy and mine are a good match.
"A fabric is first judged by visual appeal, catching your eye even at a distance. Then, by touch you assess its quality. These two characteristics - superb design and exceptional quality - are our foundation." -Anthology Fabrics
Let me introduce you to the first collection called "Sweet Tooth". (If you know me, you know I always have one! )
Raspberry tarts and tangerine oranges.
Pink cherry blossoms in bloom.
Gumdrops and taffy.
Milk shakes and long weekends.
Cool green grass under foot.
Laying in fields wondering at an aqua sky.
Lollipops and giggles.
A sweet tooth satisfied.

colorway: candy shop
colorway: milk shake
colorway: rock candy
What do you think? I really would like to have feedback.
Your feedback helps me in more ways than you know!

Well, tomorrow I will show you collection 2, Folk Life!

Love ALL the color combinations...think I favor the purples..violets, greens. Patterns are great!! I add them as wallpaper on my computer to really see them. Cool!!

first of all congratulations! the harmony of the patterns and colours you create is great (as usual)! :) and although I like the corals, peaches, and pastels of spring, your third colourway is my favourite!

Hello Anupama,
I think we must have just missed each other. We moved in August of 2008. maybe our paths will cross in the future.


I love your milk shake colorway! ;)
