Nothing But Luxurious: Picturesque Fabrics

Happy Friday! 

Fridays are already the best day of the week, but it’s even better when it’s LOOKBOOK release day! We’ve released hundreds of lookbooks in the past, and it never fails to be exciting every single time. To see all of our designers go through all the hard work and finally see their prints come to life in quilty projects is something to always look forward to. Today, we have Katarina Roccella’s latest collection, Picturesque, which is nothing but a luxurious set of fabrics. 

Channeling her inner William Morris, Picturesque embodies traditional 19th-century European designs with embellishments and decorative art. With a refined color palette of navy blues and rich fuchsias complimenting its enriched botanical details, Picturesque embodies timeless, romantic beauty.

We have so many prints to play within this collection! Coming in two colorways called “Vivid Artistry”- filled with rich pinks and navy blues, and the “Poetic Dreams” colorway that features the same colors, but softer and airy.

Picturesque comes in several large-scale prints that complete the story like “Rosemantic Trellis” that would be stunning as the backing of quilts, or decorative pillows. Embrace all the patchwork projects you can make by balancing all the large-scale prints with some blenders of the collection like “Bound Treasure”- small prints that create texture and contrast. 

Here are other suggested Elements that pair perfectly with the collection:

For all the garment makers out there, there are a couple of substrate options for you too! The “Lush Mimosa” print comes in knit, which would make the coziest sweatshirts, and even wrap around dresses. Also the 2 rayon prints in “Painted Field Case” & “Mystical Quest by Day” would be lovely as long skirts, scarves, and so much more. 

I can talk all about inspiration for the rest of the day, but nothing is better than sewing the projects yourself. Check out the lookbook below for tons of patterns that you can download with a click of a button!
