Designer Tidbits: Brannock & Patek

The Fat Quarter Shop is excited to welcome Jan Patek of Brannock & Patek to the Jolly Jabber. Brannock & Patek’s latest fabric collection is Farmer's Market from Moda Fabrics.

Q: What was the first seed that grew into the Farmer's Market collection?
A: 2 things:
1. An antique tablecloth Linda found with lots of fruit in soft, country colors.
2. Our gardens - below is mine - complete with apple trees. The cherry trees are by the front drive.

Q: What single print/SKU in the collection is your favorite?
A: 2080-14; The soft greens, reds and golds just say gardens, produce and sumptuousness.

Q: What is your favorite project you have made using this collection?
A: Natalie's Quilt...

and the Farmer's Market Block of the Month.

Q: If this collection had a scent to it, what would it be?
A: Apple or cherry blossom.

Q: If you had a mascot, what animal would it be?
A: My mascot is Spike - my bulldog - who loves sitting on quilts - something he doesn't get to do very often at all.

Q: Who is your favorite celebrity?
A: Paul Newman

Q: Who is your favorite fabric designer not including yourself?
A: Sandy Gervais because she's so versatile.
