Designer Select + Tidbits: Parson Gray



The Fat Quarter Shop is so excited to welcome David Butler aka Parson Gray to the Jolly Jabber. David’s very first fabric collection is Curious Nature from Free Spirit Fabrics.





Q: What was the first seed that grew into the Curious Nature collection?
A: Strange elements and shapes in nature, rock music, folk art, mid-century design, motion, fashion, all things that I find exciting and soothing at the same time.




Q: If your collection had a soundtrack what would be on the list?
A: Great question! Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, Leonard Cohen, Woody Guthrie, Rolling Stones, Dave Brubeck, David Bowie.






Q: What is your favorite project you have made using this collection?
A: Certainly the Curious Nature Bulls-eye quilt! (Also found on Fat Quarter Shop's Free Pattern Page.)




Q: If this collection had a scent to it, what would it be?
A: Bay Rum.

Q: Can you give us a sneak-peek of your next fabric collection?
A: I can tell you it will be called "Seven Wonders" and will work alongside Curious Nature, but we haven't edited the SKUs yet and I'd feel dumb if I showed something that didn't make the final cut! It will release this summer.

Q: If you had a mascot, what animal would it be?
A: An Owl. (That's an easy one.)

Q: Who is your favorite celebrity?
A: Oh I'm a fan of Michael Cain. Especially his older movies like Get Carter.


Q: If we were making a movie about your life, who would you want to play you?
A: Ralph Fiennes could probably pull it off.




*2 Truths and a Lie*
1. I like Gordon Lightfoot
2. I like the Bee Gees
3. I like Supertramp

One of the 3 statements is false. Comment on this post telling me which statement you think is false. Answer correctly and you have a chance to win a Parson Gray’s Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle!




You have exactly one week from the post date.
Good Luck!

#2 Does not fit with the rest of David's theme of folk and rock.

Rachel said...

#2 sounds wrong

Jera MacKenzie said...

#3 is a lie -- Supertramp is truly awful -- nothing cool about them, unlike this fabric collectio, which is fantastic!

Annaleena said...

# 2 is false. Great fabrics.

SewSuzie said...

I feel No. 2 may be the lie - only because i cannot see the Saturday Night Fever era Bee Gees being a favourite however if it was the Bee Gees of the 'New York Mining Disaster 1941' they might be!

krislovesfabric said...

I am going to guess #2 because I am not a fan of the BeeGees...thanks so much for the chance! Can't wait to see Seven Wonders.

Josie McRazie said...

Gonna have to say #2 but i don't know about this one!!

I'm a BeeGees fan but I'm going to go with #2. His fabrics are wonderful and looking at his picture is a fine thing too! :)

Beezus said...

Given the soundtrack above matches the musical tastes of my husband, I'm going to guess that the BeeGees is the false answer -- no way would my husband ever say that he loved that band, and I'm guessing that David Butler is having a chuckle by throwing that choice in. :)

Patty V said...

I can only guess and I would say #2 is false.

Beth said...

I was thinking that the same person who likes the BeeGees might like Supertramp, but then I read that Woody Guthrie is on your playlist, which made me think you might like Gordon Lightfoot. So, I'm going to guess that #3 is false. Fingers crossed. Any extra points for documenting my work? ;)

Michelle said...

I am going to say #3 is false.

Elena said...

#2 is false: He does NOT like the Bee Gees!

JaneB said...

I guess #2 Bee Gees is false because so much is true about Gordon Lightfoot and Supertramp! This is a great fabric line.

Mhairi said...

I am hoping it is #2. I love this fabric range and the images that they evoke - nature, silence and serenity.
