Introducing BLUSH

You guys!  My new fabric collection with Art Gallery Fabrics is here!
And I’m blushing to tell you about it…
It’ll make you blush?  Just blush it on?
Okay. I’ll stop.

But really, I’m so excited to share this with you!

Blush fabric collection from Art Gallery Fabrics designed by Dana Willard

The collection is called—BLUSH.
And if I had to say, this collection feels the most like “me” so far.  Not that I don’t love my fabric-children equally. But I’ve always had a love for simple shapes and designs.  And that’s what you get here.

BLUSH has a retro-modern vibe, with large florals, small florals, modern shapes, and—(wait for it)—cats!

The Cat Nap print might be my favorite in the batch (and it comes in knit too!)
(blushing smile emoji)

There are some unexpected, and expected colors in the mix.

And this Dutch Bloom is the design that sort of started it all.  I created the flower, repeated the pink and orange out of that thing, and made it large scale.  Mmmm.  Pretty symmetry in a line:

As I continued creating more designs I kept coming back to the color pink—particularly blush pink.
And I thought, maybe I should just call the collection BLUSH.
No wait, maybe I should call it blush?!
And that was that.

In the collection there are: 16 quilting cottons , 3 knits, and 1 rayon.

    I love it. Both seasons are delightful. I hope it is not limited edition because I cannot afford to buy it just yet. I wish there were a voile or a lawn as well.

      Thanks Susan! No, it’s not Limited Edition and it just shipped to stores this month. So it will be here for a while. And the good news is…as long as there is demand for a print, Art Gallery will continue to print it.
