So pleased to be introducing the first in our Designer Series for 2011 featuring South African surface and product designer, Heather Moore whose brand name is Skinny laMinx. For a closer look at all the loveliness, pop over to her Flickr page.
Cut Out & Keep is a striking collection of 8 prints based on her paper-cut designs. This is the first range of fabrics of this type for Heather and we're really excited about this collaboration. We received the strike-offs just before the holidays and I quickly sent them half way across the world to Heather's studio in Cape Town, where you can see, she didn't pause to get busy with her new creations. Amazing what she managed to produce with such smallish pieces of fabric in what seems like no time at all. Everything is so clean and breezy with her cool color palette and infusion of whites.
Cut Out & Keep is part of our Price-Sensitive offerings which will retail for under $12/yd for high quality, 100% certified organic cotton quilting fabric. This range won't be available in shops until April, but if you're hoping to see it in your favorite shops- in the US and abroad- please be sure to request it and steer them our way as we're already taking pre-orders.
