Andover Fabrics has a new collection called Urban Textures. There are two special aspects of this collection: it’s a fundraiser for SAQA (they’ll receive all royalties) and I know Shandra Belknap, one of the designers. Shandra’s art work, a design called Asphalt, was one of six chosen from 209 design competition submissions.
You can see how her fabric and the other five look in three quilt patterns designed for this collection by Luana Rubin.
According to Laura Wasilowski’s blog (she’s one of the other winning designers) this fabric will be on offer at this fall’s Quilt Market and available in stores by year’s end.
I have no axe to grind in writing about this – except to show off Shandra’s work. You should see her painted fabric.
