Afternoon Tea with Fabric Designer Suzy Ultman

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of meeting Suzy Ultman, an illustrator and new fabric designer for Robert Kaufman.  She came to the local fabric shop, Sew to Speak, for a trunk show and afternoon tea.


What fun!  Suzy brought along a collection of her work, including stationary, prints, softies and her delicious fabric.  She is well-known in the paper and print industry, and her a-little-bit retro, fun and playful designs are translating well into fabric.  We had a nice chat and I talked about how modern quilters love little novelty designs like those in Suzy's work.

Here is her first line, Kiss Me (Sept. 2010)

And I managed to snag a couple fat quarters of her second line, part of RK's Metro Cafe.

Metro Cafe in Retro colorway, and I'm not sure who makes the ginghams that coordinate so well
She also had sneak peek of her third line at the trunk show.  It was all super secret - no photos allowed.  But let me tell you, it is adorable!

What a nice little afternoon....it is so fun to chat and meet people like Suzy!



And before I forget, I owe you a winner!
