Designer Select: Blackbird Designs

The Fat Quarter Shop with Barb Adams and Alma Allen of Blackbird Designs have teamed up to present you with a Fat Quarter Shop Exclusive! Blackbird Designs has specially selected 12 prints from their Blueberry Crumb Cake collection along with 3 coordinating Bella Solids for this special bundle you will only find at the Fat Quarter Shop.

Q: What inspired you to pick the colors and designs in your Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle?
A: In planning our fabric line, Barb and I were discussing the palette. I was tired of picking the usual colors and asked Barb what she thought about a two or three colorway. She loved the idea so we began to think of the colors we loved to use.

Blue and cream shades in vintage two color quilts always call to us. They look clean, crisp and graphic on a bed. They feel like "home." Warm brown tones seemed to be the perfect complement to the blue shades.

For color inspiration we looked at vintage pieces of fabric. These rag balls give an idea of what inspired our newest line Blueberry Crumb Cake.

We didn’t want all of the blue prints to be one shade of blue. Lighter ones were added to the collection too.

We love this line! It's become one of our favorites. Weekend, our newest quilting book, is packed with great ideas highlighting our fabric.

*2 Truths and a Lie*
1. I have only been to one country fair.
2. Barb and I design cross stitch patterns also, and that’s why we try to include a sampler print in our fabric lines.
3. Barb and I hate chocolate!
