"Curious Nature" by Parson Gray

"Curious Nature" is the first collection of fabric from Parson Gray - the brand guise of artist David Butler (husband of fabric designer Amy Butler).

The collection is a folk modern interpretation of natural elements. It weaves together a balance of sophisticated hand-drawn patterns inspired by Japanese indigo and mid-century fine art. The palette is grounded in richly muted nature tones evoking clear night skies, deep forest and dark ocean balanced by bone ivory and oyster grays.

Parson Gray's "Curious Nature" is being interpreted to fabric by Free Spirit in both quilting/fashion and larger prints on Home Decor weight cotton sateen.

Come in the shop and see this wonderful collection -- Download the quilt design on Free Spirit's website by clicking here.

"Bella Bliss" Is Here!

Here's what Renee has to say about her newest collection to arrive in the shop:
"Bella Bliss is a color dream come true...the large scale floral 'mother' of the group was reproduced from a beautiful antique piece of red French bark cloth."
The 22-piece collection is used in another version of her "Rose Maison" pattern:

There are 22 pieces in this collection, and they are all used in the above pattern, along with some "Itsy Bits."

I was so glad to get to see Renee at the retreat this weekend at the Lake of the Ozarks; little did I know that when I saw a stack of "Bella Bliss" it would arrive at the shop today! Now we'll get to see what wonderful things you will create from it!

Only Because of His Grace,
