Drawing Room
by Anna Maria Horner for Free Spirit
Home dec weight fabrics with a sateen finish. I dream about these.  I own a couple of remnant pieces of these and can't cut them up to sew them into anything.

Here's a cool dress made from this fabric, a skirt, a chair, and a bag.

One of my all-time favorite collections, for the right mixture of soft and masculine colors and themes.  These look good in patchwork anything.  Some others' creations that inspire me:  pillow, quilt, doll's dress.

Inspiration: a bag

by Amy Butler, for Rowan
What's not to love about Amy Butler.  My favorites in this collection are the dots, wallflower (top right under Faded China), and lacework (top left under Faded China)...ok, and the morning glory in gray (under black lacework), and the peonies.

I've made this, this, and this out of fabric from Lotus.

A discontinued line, I think one of AB's first.  About 30 other designer fabrics were borne of this collection.  Deelish.

I love the "misty forest night" these fabrics conjure up.  I also like the soft blues, beige, and greens in the collection.

I love the browns, oranges, and pinks in this collection.  Also the "leaf balls" like this one on the top right, as well as the birds.

I recently discovered this line (July 2010).  I love the colors and free-hand look of her art (a la Alexander Henry?).  Jessica  is a print & pattern artist, find her prints here.  Here are some of her available patterns.  Hope to see more fabric by Jessica in the future.

Here are somerandom favorites:
