Sun Print 2020 Patterns

In the Sun Print 2020 Collection, there are a total of twenty-seven prints.  There are three patterns in this collection.  Each pattern has nine unique colors with its own shade of the rainbow.  Each pattern compliments with each other, so using them together is a great idea.  You can also use each pattern independently from the rest of the collection.  There are so many options with this fabric collection!  Let’s take a look at each pattern

Menagerie 2020

Menagerie is a lovely pattern with nine gorgeous colors.  These prints read a bit lighter than the rest because of the lovely cross-stitch design throughout each print.  Hidden with the designs, you will find birds, flowers, squirrels, lions, bumble-bees and many more fun designs!  Handwork artists can even use this fabric as a base for cross-stitch!  Imagine that!  No counting!  Yay!

Stitched 2020 Pattern

The Stitched Pattern consists of nine more prints that are artistically illustrated!  You will find continuous lines that create a variety of motifs for slow sewing.  Even if you didn’t want to use the fabric for its hand-stitching patterns – the designs make for a great path for free motion quilting as well!  The printed lines are just subtle enough to let this fabric act as a great blender for your quilts and would make a great lining for your handmade bags and wallets.

Embroidery 2020 Pattern

I just love the Embroidery 2020 Pattern!  This fabric also has nine colors of the rainbow and is just perfect for many, many uses!  Personally, I would use this fabric for fussy cutting, blending with other quilting fabrics, or for sewing bags and wallet linings.  If you are into hand embroidery, I can see how wonderful this fabric would be for a variety of embroidery projects!

Alison Glass Trunk Show

I have always been a fan of Alison Glass.  Since I started following her, Alison has continued to create beautiful designs for fabric, wonderful Quilt patterns and even makes embroidery designs! In case you didn’t know…. Alison Glass is a surface designer living in Virginia with her husband, daughter, and son. She currently designs fabric for Andover Fabrics and has several collections available. I was recently invited to the 2018 Fall Festival at Missouri Star Quilt Company. The Alison Glass Trunk Show was on the schedule and I could not wait! Most of you know that I live a little over an hour from MSQC, so I was thrilled to attend!

Alison and I pose for a picture at her Meet & Greet. Alison is such a sweet person! I can’t wait to see what she designs next!

Since it isn’t everyday that Alison comes to the Midwest – we (a group of Modern Quilt Guild Members) decided to either carpool or meet in Hamilton Missouri. There was a full day of activities planned (let’s not even talk about the amount of shopping that happened) and the Alison Glass Trunk Show was scheduled for 10am.  Alison gave a great talk to the audience and showed us many quilts that were made with her various lines of fabric.  Let me show you one of my favorite quilts!

The Trunk Show

Alison Glass Trunk Show - Feathers Quilt 1

The Feathers Quilt pattern was based on Alison’s Feathers fabric design from Sun Print 2014, this large scale version of the design uses foundation paper piecing for a precise finish. Fourteen block templates can be arranged as shown or in any other distinctive combination. Simple shapes, detailed instructions and color illustrations make this pattern a great introduction to foundation paper piecing.

There were many questions after Alison’s Trunk Show and one of them was, “Why do you use grey or darker colors as a background?”  Alison explained how the saturated colors are able to shine through with the darker background (as opposed to white or cream).  Although, Alison did also say that a white background does look really nice with this the Feathers Quilt as well!

The Quilt Show

There was a Quilt Show just next door to the Alison Glass Trunk Show.  Not only did Alison bring a bunch of quilts for her Trunk Show, but she also brought many others to display in the Quilt Show.  It was really great to be able to get up close to her quilts.  The colors are truly amazing.  I love the depth and saturation!

I’m not sure which background that I like the best!  There is definitely something wonderful about both quilts.  It’s amazing how the background fabric can truly change the look of the quilt!

Alison Glass Trunk Show - Quilt Kit

If you are thinking of making this exact quilt for yourself, there is a Quilt Kit available.  As with all designer fabrics, the quantities are very limited!  Get your Quilt Kit HERE.  Your Quilt kit also include the pattern.  Yay!

If you just want to play with Alison’s lovely Sun Print Fabric Collection, you can check your local fabric shop!  If they don’t carry it – ask them to!  You can also purchase yardage and pre-cuts online.

The day was full of friends, fun and fabric!  I was able to briefly visit with Alison and found her to be a very sweet person.  You can learn more about Alison and her products by visiting her website:  www.alisonglass.com  I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next!
