Hello, Cupcakes! 

      My new line, Elements, just arrived!  I’m psyched and can’t wait to do something with them.    I love that they blend with all of my older lines, as well as the surprise line that I’m unveiling at the International Quilt Market in Pittsburgh this spring!  

As for Elements,  it will ship to the shops in March or early April.  Make sure that your shop carries it — ask for it! 

The following are the computer images of the design.  The fabric looks awesome and feels like silk!     xoxom

 There is a darker tan that supposed to be here but I couldn’t get the darn thing to download and show up (sounds like when I was dating). 

Anyway, folks, I hope you like them!

    Mark, they are fabulous! Now THIS is the kind of fabric I load my stash with. I love them and can’t wait to get my hands on them. Already have a pattern I want one to be a background with.

    Mark, your “lines” will never be old! Gorgeous new designs. I want all of them in my stash immediately! Thank you for all your hard work on behalf of all us fabric junkies!

    I’m drooling! I especially love the greens and oranges. They look good enough to eat.

    Thank you, Mark! I love blenders. It’s so easy to find focus fabrics but it is the selection (or lack thereof) of blenders that can make fabric choices difficult.

    What is the scale of this design? Are we looking at 5 inch swatches? 2 inch swatches?

    see you in June at the QU show….

    I am always looking for decent blenders and prints that read solid! Good job!

    The yellows (my favorite color) are yummy!!! Can’t wait to see it close up.

    I love a good tone-on-tone blender, and these are perfect–I’m on the hunt now! Thanks for the preview Mark. =)

    I love that there are several values of each color which should go with anything I can think of! Thanks, Mark, for developing a beautiful line of fabrics that also feel god too. Can’t wait to see the surprise line….

    Wow, Mark, what a great line. As an avid appliquer these are the kind of fabrics I’m attracted to. I can’t wait to get my hands on them and they will make fabulous backgrounds.

    Love it! My mind goes right to applique possibilities and there are some gorgeous flowers ready to bloom from that pile of fabrics. Thanks for the early peek.

    I NEED at least a yard of each one and 2-3 of several. WOW. These are beautiful.


  27. February 18, 2009 at 7:09 PM #

    Oh Lordy those fabrics are so bright and beautiful! I could use them in any project.
    How cruel to make us wait until March or April.

    Excellent line Mark! They will be a real hit.

    Wonderful! They deserve (and will have) a place in my stash alongside Gail Kessler’s Dimples! I am SO looking forward to MAQF and hoping to find your Krakow line there. (my great-grandfather’s farm was near Krakow and my mom and daughter in law and I collect the pottery! Someone said there’s going to be a meeting of Posse members…where? when? I’m staying in Williamsburg but will attend the show on Wed night, Thurs and Fri (and maybe Saturday morning if it looks like a good golf day-lol).

    OMG! I LOVE Gail’s Dimples! 😮 xooxm

    I love Elements. I’m working on mandala quilts – especially if they are rainbow like. These will be perfect. I was just on the phone with my Art Event Producer. She wants more of my round rainbow mandalas for a show in April and these fabrics will be awesome – did I really use that word. Hopeing for a March delivery. Thank you for the fun.
    Peace, Katie Gomez

    Ooh Pickle Daddy!
    Love those Elements and can’t wait to touch ’em.
    Any chance of 108″ widths? I want them for fronts AND backs.
    Really missed your blog. So glad you’re back.

    Hi Mark…saw these from my fabric rep the other day and bought the entire collection! They are fabulous…goodbye boring blenders!

    I’m delighted that these match your previous lines. I find it really angrifying when I go to try and find fabric something “old,” i.e. released 6 months ago, just to find its a half-register off from anything in the stores. These are great and I’m going to stock up. Northocott fabrics are my favorite too.
