Fandango by Kate Spain-- and more!

Bringing the Spain back home, Kate Spain's new line Fandango does an absolutely fabulous job!  After living in Spain for two months myself, this line hits right to my heart, reminding me of the color tones and architecture all around the country.... ohh how I want to go back to visit!  I love how Kate gave us an extra kick with a little contemporary feel too!


Check out the Fandango Tango quilt kit we're getting in next week!  It's made from the Parasols Quilt Pattern by Fig Tree Quilts.. super cute!




Hi everyone! Hope you're all enjoying summer to its fullest. It's been a busy one around here for sure and I am so happy that it's August now because that means...Fandango yardage will be shipping! You probably already know that a "Fandango" is quite a snappy Spanish folk dance (ya, it's not just where you buy movie tickets), complete with castanets, hand clapping and foot stamping.




While I'm not much of a dancer (two left feet on the dance floor) I had such fun letting my pencil dance across the page when I began sketching concepts for this line!



I also wanted to include my love for making pottery and some of the beautiful motifs on hand made decorative tiles from afar.



The colors for Fandango were largely inspired by some tiles I bought while traveling in Mexico. When I saw them, I fell in love with the earthy combination of gold, celadon and terra cotta.

I love that tin! Seriously, if I don't win I want to buy one but it would be awesome to win. It contains two of my favorite Moda fabrics. I've already made two quilts with Fandango and I'm glad yardage came out so I can do the binding.

zarina said...

Spain - I hope in this lifetime I can visit the country and see their football team play in a competition. Ok - that does not sound right but am are head over heels of Torres, fabregas, that new guy who scored big in the past World Cup.

I was lucky enough to quilt two Schnibbles made from Fandango for one of my clients. I fell in love with it!

Could always use more.

debbymom said...

Fat Quarters does an excellent job bringing the quilter closer to the designers. Seeing the inspiration tiles that lead to Fandango feels like being let into a little secret. It makes picking out Fandango yardage that more personal. Thanks FQ!

Cynthia in Clovis, CA said...

What luscious colors! This would make a perfect quilt for a beach house. No beach house? Me neither, but if I win, I will make the quilt and be prepared for one.
