I have long been an admirer and purchaser of the fabrics, hand screen printed by my lovely friend Karen Lewis.
After much hard work, and determination, Karen has been taken on as designer for Robert Kaufmann with her Blueberry Park collection of 75 prints! Yes first collection and a whopping 75 prints! Isn't that marvellous. It is a great match for them as Karen has been printing on Kona fabric for quite a while and Robert Kaufman have developed a special technique of printing so that Karen's fabrics retain that screen printed feel.
Her fabric is coming to the UK this month - some has been popping up before but it is on general release this month.
I have signed up to the monthly club at Simply Solids as I am hopeless when it comes to choosing - I want them all!
A while ago I had a Karen Lewis Textiles week #aweekofKLT - now I am thinking of #amonthofKLT to celebrate!
My first KLT project - a scrappy one I started in my KLT week - is a wonky star quilt.
I have just finished quilting and binding it today!
Here is it's story in pictures:
Here is the top
I took some inspiration for quilting it from the stars
And some from my KLT wonky star fabric
I just need to wash it and get that texture but here are a couple of pre-wash photos!
And that makes three KLT fabric quilt I have made! How many do you have ?
