444: Dazzle! My new collection for Andover Fabrics

I am super excited to share my newest line with you!

Dazzle is a  tight little collection of 6 prints in two colorways with a total of 16 skus. I am pretty sure it will be shipping to shops around the beginning of June, but I will get back to you on that.

First up, the teal colorway.

Large scale allover tossed, unofficial name- Jewel:

Medium-scale, unofficial name - Vine:

Medium scale--- Circles:

Medium-smallish scale, unofficial name - Shadow Stripe:

Small scale tonal coordinates ---- Flowers:

Small scale coordinate ---- Basketweave:

 And now, the pink colorway! (You knew there would be a pink colorway, didn't you?)

Jewel

Vine

Circles

Shadow Stripe:

Flowers

 

Basketweave

Of course I love the main prints, but I am super excited about the tonals/coordinates too! I think they would make an awesome quilt just on their own.

How would you use these prints?

xo,

melissa

 

ps just realized I said 'super excited' twice in this post.

These are fantastic. I especially love the grey basketweave & circles. {{luv!}} I've lost touch for a while and didn't know you were designing fabrics. How long have you been doing that now? Wishing you well and much success with your fabric line(s).

I so can't wait to get my hands on some of these! Of course I always love your large-scale prints, but I'm most excited for the tonal flowers and basketweave. For some reason I'm really digging prints like that right now.

wow you have been one very busy bee! These are gorgeous! :) Some of these would look absolutely lovely covering office chairs, redone old chairs (you know, wooden ones painted brights with new cloth covered seats/backs) or for other home decor uses. Or accent pillows. Or totes. Or...
