Laura Heine – Fabric and Patterns

I can’t wait for you to see the new fabric line “The Dress” by Laura Heine with Free Spirit.  It is the soft fabrics that bring her collages to life!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Check out her new patterns that have these softer colors. The giraffe and seahorse patterns are mini versions of her popular patterns.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cake Mix Collage is a total collage – including the background. Montgomery Moose Painterly appears to have brush strokes but it is a piecing technique that Laura has created.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The patterns are arriving next month the fabric in December – just in time for Winter classes.

This 42 x 54 inch quilt is a perfect size for a wall hanging or baby quilt!  It is actually a combination of nine different blocks so it goes together rather quickly.  I know I am still in holiday mode – but my first reaction?  The Grinch would love this town!

Collages are Hot

Laura’s Little Book of Collage #LHFLBC
Laura Heine’s collage quilts are taking the industry by storm. Every shop that teaches a class, continues to teach them over and over again! But, many of you were hesitant because this was outside that comfortable box we love. Well, it is time to step out of that box because Laura has now written a book that explains – step by step – how to pick colors and fabrics for these works of art. This is not a pattern – it is the perfect companion to ALL of her patterns – and a must read for anyone teaching a class!
