Carkai - Carolyn Friedlander Stitches in Parchment
Part of the new Carkai collection from Carolyn Fridlander. I've been a long fan of Carolyn's unique talent. She has a strong design voice and her palette always offers up a few fun surprises that break from the flavours of the season. She is also thoughtful in building on past collections and updating her hits from the past to work with new fabrics. There are several more on their way (including updated prints from Architextures and Doe) but this is an excellent start.
Note - Carolyn is a mission driven designer (my favourite kind of creator)...she's thoughtful and quiet in her drive, but singularly focussed in delivering to her community...
"I’m proud to bring my individual dynamic and aesthetic to the rich history and tradition of quilting. My mission is to honor the art’s venerable legacy, both by creating original, hand-made pieces and by providing a road map for others to do the same. Let’s make something."
Spark - I chose these fabrics specifically to go together in a soft and unique combination. Also, remember that Carolyn is a fantastic pattern designer and her patterns are a perfect fit with her fabrics.
Please note that all fabric is sold in 1/2 yard increments. If you want 1 yard, please order a quantity of 2. If you want 2 yards, you will need to order a quantity of 4.
