Designer Tidbits: Horizon by Kate Spain (Plus Giveaway!)


Hi everyone! Kate Spain is here today to chat about her newest collection for Moda Fabrics, Horizon. This sea glass inspired collection is filled with cool blues and soft lavenders and is a twist from Kate's previous collections. Read on to find out more!


Q: Tell us a little about the Horizon collection. What were you inspired by?
A: Thanks for having me on the Jolly Jabber! I'm so happy to share a little more about Horizon with your readers. For much of my life, I've lived close to the water (still do) and one of my favorite things to do in any season is to take walks along the shore. Even from day-to-day,  there are noticeable changes in the scenery...whether it's the sun illuminating bright green sea grasses, or shorebirds diving and bobbing on the waves, or the blend of colors in the sky at different times of day. I love to notice these shifts and that they're all set against a single, tranquil constant; the horizon line. Here is a photo taken from the end of our street:

And this photo is of sand at low tide that I took on Christmas Day last year.


There is always something to be inspired by!

Horizon is a bit of a departure from my usual style in that I began by hand-carving blocks and printing them to create the repeat patterns. It was the first time I'd ever tried to do this and really had no idea how the process would translate to fabric. But I am so happy with how it turned out! I love that the irregularity, imperfection and handmade quality of the block prints remains intact in the finished fabric. Here are several of the blocks I hand-carved and some of the patterns I created from these blocks



The color palette for Horizon was inspired by bits of beautiful, luminous sea glass I've collected from many shores over the years — in hues of bright green, crystal blue, turquoise, and brilliant cobalt. These are some of my favorite colors and I love the way they resonate harmoniously with the textural designs of the block prints.


Q: What is your design process when beginning a new collection?
A: I really love the freedom of being consumed by the creative process so I typically start with either a color palette or a very simple, unrefined idea or area of interest: woodland gardens, ceramic tiles, Caribbean blossoms etc. Then I usually draw or paint or as with Horizon, carve. This gives way to exploring how colors interact, seeing how the scale and rhythm of patterns play together, and then composing and refining these elements to balance the collection as a whole. I guess it's a bit like sailing where you can be drifting along and then suddenly a gust of wind fills your sails and off you go! I love the creative process because you never really know when the wind of inspiration will arrive or which direction it'll come from. It could happen early on at the beginning of a project, or somewhere else. The thing you can be sure of is that once it arrives, you get completely swept up and carried away toward a new creative horizon!


Q: What is your favorite part about being a designer?
A: Every single part of it. It’s what I love to do. Working with my hands is definitely a big part of it for me. The process of carving blocks was so inspiring to me that I may have to do it again. If anyone is interested, we're going to be offering a limited edition of my woodblock prints on our shop site. Each one was hand-printed by me and a wonderfully skilled neighbor did all the framing. Both framed and unframed prints are available.


Q: What projects do you hope to see made with Horizon?
A: I've already seen some amazing quilts being made with Horizon and will keep my eyes peeled for others! Also, I teamed up with a wonderful sewist/photographer, Becca DuVal  who has brought her amazing talents to creating three "looks" for children's outfits and a small "Day Tripper" bag. We're featuring her projects, the patterns she used and her photos on my blog now, so please come for a visit! Here's an adorable peek:


And what's on my creative horizon? Maybe some of this.

It's called Paradiso and will be shown at the International Quilt Market this October.

I'm thinking sailboats--half square triangle sailboats. The colors in this collection are lovely!

Peggy Terzian said...

This Horizon collection fits right into my sewing room-I don't live near the beach, but I have the beach in my room, and these will fit right in. My room has windows facing east and north, and some summery curtains out of Horizon would celebrate the sunshine! Thanks for the opportunity, and your fantastic blog-I always feel up to date in the quilting world after visiting! Peggy Terzian

Quilter Kathy said...

Absolutely gorgeous! I would use this fabric to make Bonnie Hunter's new mystery quilt in November!

Horizon is a lovely bright change from the teals and lime greens so popular now. Your sand picture on Christmas day inspires me to make a pouffy duvet cover - tufted with big, fake pearls for spring.

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I have yet to make a Swoon quilt as I haven't found the right fabric - wouldn't this be wonderful!

Willa said...

Not exactly sure what I would do. Maybe tech cozies? But the fabric would inspire something I am sure. Love, love, love the color range.

Lynda said...

there is a stack n wack pattern that I would love to try using the palest of all the colors in the line

babiesdoc said...

I would always make quilts with any fabric.
I have huge jars filled with sea glass collected from beaches all over the world. often a piece or two of sea glass and a few grains of sand in a bottle were my momentos of a journey

Wendy said...

I love the beachy colors of this collection. They feel "softer" than some of Kate's other collections and I would love to make a drapey quilt with a nod to the sea...something to wrap up in on a cool, breezy day.

Sunstar585 said...

I love Kate Spain's fabric design, and I think these blues and greens are my favorite so far. I have a quilt already in my head that they would be perfect for!

Terri said...

Gorgeous! I love reading about the inspiration behind this collection and Kate's process for creating the artwork. I don't live near the ocean but we spend time on nearby Lake Michigan, so I would love to make a beach quilt or picnic quilt or maybe a sleeping bag.

Anonymous said...

My favorite colors - they speak of summer! Nice prints would deserve a special pattern, a fussy cut kaleidoscope design.

Billy'sgirl said...

What lovely colors! I think I am going to finally make a quilt for the bed my husband and I share. I will have to hide it when I have guests, so that I won't be charmed into giving it away. Again. ;-)

Lisa said...

To me this fabric is begging to be made into a throw quilt to have at the beach. It has all the colors of a lazy afternoon on the deck watching the waves roll in!

Mary Grace McNamara said...

Love the colors in this collection! I would make a large quilt with the fat quarters, or I would make lots of my 4-fat-quarter cinch sack pattern. Whatever is made with this fabric line is sure to be gorgeous!

Our house is all sea glass colors, so I would love to make a throw for our couch and some improv style pillows. Maybe a table runner too. Love both the colors and the patterns.

Kim Hazlett said...

Love the colors as it makes me think I am at the beach all of the time. I have two projects in mind - one is a quilt on Kate Spains blog that has large waves and perfect for a baby quilt. Second quilt is one of Judy Niemeyer's patterns or Kaffe Fasset's triangles pattern. Probably have to do both patterns to see how the fabrics play with each other. Love the texture so much with these line of fabrics.

Debi Horne said...

I love the color combinations, they are so awesome! I would like to make a Tranqual sea quilt. That's the first thing I thought of. My caught in law loves the beach, but lives in the mountains, she would love it!

memmens said...

I'd love to make a plus quilt with these fabrics - thanks for the chance

Heather said...

So beautiful - this is my fave colour palette. Absolutely love each and every fabric. I think I would actually have to make a quilt or bed runner for my room - keep these fabrics close, rather than give them away.

This I think is my favorite collection so far with all the blues and purples in it. Ok, I've said that with all of Kate's collections. LOL

Since I never have made my lap quilt for the van and winter is coming as much as I'd like to ignore that fact, I think this might be perfect for that. I also think it would make a great little dress for my granddaughter. She's still small enough that it doesn't take much fabric.

Suesews Too said...

My niece loved horizon range. I was showing her all my fabric in my stash, hoping she would choose something from there, but she was hesitant. As soon as I showed her horizon online, her face lit up, this was the ONE!
Now we are having trouble deciding on a pattern. She is ten and I want to make a large twin size quilt but in a pattern she will not grow out of, so we will just keep looking. Thanks for the opportunity, would love the fat qtr bundle, then I might be able to make myself one as well ☺️

Anonymous said...

I'd probably make a modern bed quilt. Not sure what pattern. I'd have to see it in person and find the perfect pattern.

Kim @ TiesThatBindQuilting said...

Gorgeous color palette! It feels very serene. I'd love to make a quilt and matching pillows for our couch!

oh my gosh! I love Kate Spain and her designs! I love the palette and designs in Horizon. I would make a Swoon quilt or Fireworks by Camille Roskelly with a Horizon fat quarter bundle! Something similar with stars, to spotlight this gorgeous fabric! If I had a layer cake, I'd make the recent ModaLove star quilt.

I love this collection! I think it would make a gorgeous quilt - something that uses nice big portions of the fabric to really show off the print.

I would make a storm at sea quilt with all the fabrics in the bundle. I am in love with the horizon fabric since I first saw it.

I've recently learned how to sew curves, so I think a wall hanging with a lot of curves would be something very appropriate for this fabric. I bet it would be beautiful!

I live on the water, too, in our trawler boat, so these colors are right up my alley! I would definitely make a quilt for our stateroom. I've been pinning patterns like mad on Pinterest. One of them is sure to be perfect with this beautiful collection.

Thanks for hosting this giveaway!
