Designer Select: Kate & Birdie Paper Co.


Gloria of Kate & Birdie Paper Co. has captured the beauty of long, Canadian Winters with Winter's Lane, her debut collection for Moda Fabrics. Use this elegant collection in quilts and projects to decorate your home when temperatures drop. Get a well-curated taste of the full collection with Kate & Birdie's Designer Select Bundle. Gloria is here to tell you all about the bundle, so keep reading for more information and a chance to win!


Q: Tell us about your inspiration for Winter's Lane? How did you pick the prints to include in your Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle?
A: This collection is completely nature-inspired, particularly by our long, grey Canadian winters. I love the wooly greys and whites of the Canadian prairies, the warmth of stacked wood piles and tall evergreen forests, the icy blues and the pops of bright red in winterberries and cardinals. I wanted to create a winter collection that wasn’t only fitting for holiday, but a line that can be used for quilts, blankets and pillows that feel cozy all winter long. I chose pieces from the collection that really embodied this winter theme for the bundle.



Q: What are 3 words you would choose to describe this collection?
A:
1. Woodland
2. Cozy
3. Wooly

*2 Truths and a Lie*
1. When it comes to textiles, I love neutrals most.
2. I attended school for textile design.
3. I collect vintage little golden books.


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 Kate & Birdie's Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle! Contest closes July 9, 2013.
Good Luck!

I'm gonna say #2 because Gloria has a paper company ( nice papers too) and if she went to a design school for textiles I think she would have had a textile company instead. But not everything goes down the path we thought LOL :)

Melissa Morgan-Oakes said...

#2 is the lie - but I "cheated" by reading the Kate & Birdie about us! "Self-taught artist" implies no formal education, and as a (former) homeschooling mom and high school drop-out with a unique education and career stream of my own, I warmly appreciate self-taught anything!
