Moda at Market: Fandango by Kate Spain

By now you know we love Kate Spain. Kate has rocked our socks off ever since Verna. Her fabric line 12 Days of Christmas is the one we chose for the BOM we baby every year, Designer Mystery, for 2010 (ads are starting to come out for it, woohoo!) and it also rocks socks. We love Kate Spain. Ode to Kate!

This Market, we will see lots of her Market release, Fandango! We've already planned a kit for it using one of Fig Tree Quilt's patterns -- the result is a-ma-zing. Here's Kate's take on Fandango...cannot wait until its August release!!


This line was inspired by my love for ceramics and the beautiful mosaic tile work of Barcelona. The palette mixes rich red jasper, turquoise, and celadon with hints of terra cotta and glints of gold. It occurred to me that since quilts are (essentially) a mosaic of prints and colors, I really hope quilters are inspired by the possibilities of this collection.
