5 Fabric Trends for Spring

Posted on April 12, 2015

We see a lot of fabric here at the Bloomerie studio, so it’s easy to spot fabric trends months before new collections are released. While we could tempt you with summer, fall, and winter 2015 trends (and make you wait all that time to get your hands on this great stuff), we figured we show off some of the stuff we’re seeing right now -- or coming very, very soon. 

Here are 5 fabric trends for spring 2015.

Moda has announced several updates to the Challenge, notably the prizes and the deadline for submission to shops (now March 31, 2015).  So if you're entering the competition, here's the timeline and other useful info: 

March 31:  Your quilt submissions (photos & entry form) are due to Bloomerie via e-mail.  Your quilt stays with you.  And as you can guess, the better the picture, the better your chances of impressing viewers and voters. 
April 6 - 18:  Bloomerie shares/displays quilt photos online for public judging.  Fun!
April 19 - 24:  Bloomerie announces its top vote-getter (First-Place Winner) and submits that winning quilt photo to Moda for the national competition.    
April 30:  Moda announces all shop winners on its popular blog, The Cutting Table.  It's an online quilt show, and blog readers vote for their favorites!
May 8:  Moda announces the 2015 Piece & Comfort Challenge winners.  Prizes are awarded in mid-May, and there's additional press during the Memorial Day weekend.
