Fabric Friday – Angela Walters’ Drawn and Rhoda Ruth by Elizabeth Hartman

Don’t you just love it when some of your favorite quilt designers become fabric designers, too? This week I want to share two new colorful collections from Angela Walters and Elizabeth Hartman, both of whom design fabrics for Robert Kaufman.

Angela Walters’ Drawn collection features luscious bundles in warm Sorbet, cool Water, and neutral Pewter. I also think it’s genius that you can get several of her designs in extra wide fabrics, too – perfect for backings. Either use them as stand alone backings, or quilt on the lines with the quilt upside-down to add incredible texture to your quilts.

Rhoda Ruth is named for Elizabeth’s grandmother who must have had a great sense of color and style. I think these prints answer the call for smaller scale prints that will look perfect in modern quilts!

I know that both Angela and Elizabeth will be debuting their new lines at fall quilt market and I can hardly wait to get my hands on them!

    I wish I could buy them all. I love the bright colors. Can not wait to see the wide fabrics. My low fiber diet only works when n if I can say no to entering the quilt stores. But u always need the right color thread, or ruler or the next class offered!!!

    Wide widths for backing is just a bonus!

    The Angela Walters sets look yummy…I am supposed to be on a “low fiber diet” but I might have to rethink that….!

      Annlouise – just read this comment and had to laugh – thanks for making my day – hadn’t thought about it but I should put myself on a low fiber diet as well – but as with ice cream, fabrics are just too yummy to resist.
