Oh my, did we love Laura Gunn’s booth at Quilt Market! Isn’t it just marvelous? For those of you that don’t know, Laura Gunn is a gifted artist, a new fabric designer, and also Heather Bailey’s sister–in–law.
Heather introduced Laura to us at Quilt Market in Pittsburgh, where she was promoting Laura’s debut — wow, what a talented extended family!
Lantern Bloom is Laura Gunn’s debut fabric line with Michael Miller, and all fabrics were created based on Laura’s original acrylic paintings. The textured effect this brings to the printed fabric is stunning.

We met Laura Gunn briefly with Heather Bailey at the Fall 2008 Quilt Market in Houston (here are the two of them holding a quilt that Heather designed featuring her Pop Garden™ fabric line).
Heather’s collections have been quite popular and we stock all three fabric lines completely — including Freshcut™ which is no longer being printed… so when it’s gone, it’s gone! Bijoux™, a line of blender fabrics that Heather designed to go with Pop Garden™, also coordinates well with many Freshcut™ fabrics.
See the newsletter coupon below for savings on all Heather Bailey fabrics as well as Lantern Bloom.
For a striking yet fairly easy project, try Climbing Lanterns, the free pattern featured by Michael Miller for the Lantern Bloom collection. It’s the quilt behind Laura on the wall of her booth.
Or try Amy Butler’s Swing Bag pattern — it has lines similar to the bag to the left of Laura, and is a fun bag for everyday use. For a great summer top, check out the Juliet Tunic from Serendipity Studio.

These fabric lines would also be wonderful for jackets — for mom try The Frayed Jacket by Favorite Things (this would be quite dramatic in the Lantern Bloom fabrics) and for your daughter or granddaughter, check out the Natty Jacket & Vest by Pink Fig Patterns (pictured in Heather’s Pop Garden™ fabrics).
