InBlue fabrics

It seems like forever since my last post and it's already time to present you my newest, available collection: InBlue.


Inspired with the world’s most favourite colour, BLUE, and the history of it’s appearance and usage, especially in Dutch culture and it’s famous Delftware, I created my latest fabric collection, named InBlue. I played with different motifs in different scales and combinations of blue shades in order to create a fun and versatile 20 prints collection, divided in two colorways: Azuur Stark and Azuur Zoet. 

Blue, coming from the semi-precious stone, lapis lazuli, was a latecomer among colors used in art and decoration, but three thousand years surely records some most amazing art’s creations worldwide. In Europe, especially from the Renaissance period, this royal and prestigious colour, became associated with holiness, humility and virtue and was a favourite colour of many most prestigious and famous painters ( like Titian, Durer, Raphael, Vermeer etc.)Exported to Europe, Chinese porcelain that used cobalt blue, launched the style of Chinoiserie. It was very popular style that appeared in the early 17th century, especially in the arts of Holland.


My collection was shown this weekend, during the Sprint Quilt Market in St. Louis and here you can see the picture of how it was displayed.

On the right, you can see my free Quilt Pattern, Lapis Lazuli, that can be downloaded HERE


I had so much fun making many items with my collection and be sure to check the Look book for more inspiration and projects!!


I have prepared also the Dala horse pattern, that can be cute ornament hanging and can be downloaded HERE.


 The quilt pattern that I finished 3 years ago (when launching my Recollection collection) and was so lame to publish, is finally available and it's called Navate quilt. I am so proud of this little pattern, because it looks amazing (at least to me) in any fabric collection that I tried to do (doing mock ups). It's a lot of strip piecing, but it's so fun!!! I hope to finish it soon, as it's only the top that it's completed ;)

PS I have just added the new coupon code: "INBLUE" for my etsy store to get 25% off on purchases until the end of June-enjoy!

Will make the updates as soon as the Lookbook will be out!!!

Katarna
