Introducing the Technicolor Tidings Collection

5 comments » catalog, fabric, fun, gifty, patterns

I think the collection name Technicolor Tidings sums up the feeling I was trying to express about the collection quite nicely; transforming something classic and traditional into something current with a punch of color and whimsy. I wanted to design a Christmas group that wasn’t traditional, but rather bright, bold, fun and retro inspired.

I feel this is a throwback to 1950’s/60’s holiday decor. I was inspired by metallic tinsel trees decorated with those beautifully colored vintage glass ornaments and sparkling lights. Kitschy reindeer figurines, candy colored gift wrapped presents and sparkling snowflakes full of color that bounce off outside Christmas lights.  I see my prints used in a number of ways, from the luscious quilts designed in this group, to using the fabric to wrap a gift.  This collection is full of fantasy and whimsy and just makes me smile. What projects do you want to make with it?

    I really love this collection, especially the wreaths on aqua! I’d love to use that with the stripes to make my daughters dresses. I just bought the urban prairie pattern on Connecting Threads.
