Barcelona, the new fabric line for Moda

Dienstag, 7. Mai 2013

From guest blogger Christine Traub

Hi, I am Christine, I blog (irregularly) at www.grapes-hearts.blogspot.com. Two years ago I read about Brigitte’s first booth at Quilt Market and soon discovered that she lives only 30 minutes away from me. Some months later we met in real life and she has since become a real friend. Together we founded a local Modern Quilt Guild and every now and then I enjoy helping her prepare for Quilt Market.

She is quilting up a storm for Spring Quilt Market right now and I’m honored that she asked me to introduce to you her new fabric line for Moda.

So without much further ado here is “Barcelona”:

Brigitte’s third fabric line for Moda is a homage to the city of Barcelona and one of it’s most famous citizens, Antoni Gaudí i Cornet (1852-1926). The great architect Gaudí found his main inspiration in nature and in geometric forms. He is considered as one of the masters of Catalan Modernism.

Park Guell Antonio Gaudi

Brigitte’s fabric line features colorful cathedral windows or tiles like Gaudi used so often in the Parc Güell

…street maps…

…mosaics…

… multicolored stripes…

… bicolor dots and

…some prints that read like solids but that are slightly structured, called “rain in Spain”.

The colors range from black, gray, dark green, apple-ish green, blue, orange to off-white. Sparkled with hints of red and yellow. Perfect for quilt patterns that show off graduated colors.

In the last couple of weeks our modern quilt guild has become a group of little elves. Almost every one with a slightly advanced skill level helped piecing quilt tops following Brigitte’s newest pattern collection. Tune in next week for an overview of her brand new Zen Chic patterns that will be available just in time for Spring Quilt Market.

Here’s a little teaser:

Zen Chic shine through

 

So what do you think? We would love to hear what you think of “Barcelona”. What projects would you like to make from Brigitte’s newest fabric collection? Leave us a comment and we will draw a random winner of a bag full of scrap strips of “Barcelona” (by the end of May, when Brigitte will be back from Quilt Market). Brand new and months before Barcelona will be available at quilt stores (due Fall 2013).

See you next week for a reveal of Brigitte’s new patterns!

Happy Sewing!
Christine

Barcelona is a beautiful line. I especially love the blues and greens and believe the stripes will make fabulous binding. Really gorgeous and I would love it if I won some scraps to put in my Spring Carnival. Thank you very much for the chance of winning.

These are lovely fabrics. I think I would use them to make a 'manly'
quilt for my friend Ken who has just returned from his middle aged gap year.

Susan hat gesagt…

What beautiful fabrics! As for what I'd use them for....hoarding of course! No, I would use them to make the new pattern I have called Melly by Rachel Griffith and also a table runner.

Mary on Lake Pulaski hat gesagt…

If I were so lucky, I would definitely make the Shine Through quilt - that is an awesome design with beautiful fabric.

Katherine hat gesagt…

Barcelona is gorgeous! I'm in love with the palette and the designs in your newest line, Brigitte. I can see quilts, bags and so many pretty things that can be made from Barcelona. It's dreamy! (I'll keep my fingers crossed for those pretty scraps ;o)

Oh, my! Love "Shine Through"- it has me dreaming of stained glass windows and a trip to Europe.

Congratulations! Wishing you all the best at Quilt Market.

Lisa Marie hat gesagt…

The fabrics are lovely! I think the street map prints would make great background fabrics -- interesting, but not too busy. I always love Brigitte's fabrics, thanks for the preview! Also, the pattern is gorgeous.

Casey York hat gesagt…

What a beautiful line, Brigitte! I specialized in Spanish art history in grad school, and I think you've done a great job capturing the essence and style of Barcelona while staying true to your personal style. I don't often buy stash fabrics, but I'm going to have to get that streetplan print in every color! You've already got me dreaming up an European architecture-themed quilt...

Vicki H hat gesagt…

I think they would be great in a wallhanging. I really like them all.

B Greene hat gesagt…

The street maps are amazing!!! And I love the multicolor stripes - they will be wonderful for binding. Another great collection and "Shine Through" is such a great quilt design. Thanks for sharing and for the chance to win!

amy g :) hat gesagt…

Oh man, I would love to make that quilt you tease at the bottom of the post - it's positively gorgeous!!!

Jane hat gesagt…

Love, love, love the new collection (but then again I'm a fan of your previous ones!)The map, dots and stripe prints are great. I will be buying the entire line and MORE of those. Congratulations on another great line!

Shar hat gesagt…

I would love to make some skirts from it! Maybe some matching bags.

Sequana hat gesagt…

What beautiful colors in this new line! I especially like the stripes; I can never find enough stripes to use in my quilts or in the bindings.

Susan hat gesagt…

Oh my, these fabrics are just beautiful. The stripes, the mosaics, the street maps. I'm drooling as I'm typing. I don't have a project in mind (still working on Comma) but I want to own them and pet them!

Julierose hat gesagt…

Barcelona is lovely--I think a "house" quilt of some kind--featuring all the fabrics would be super...Julierose

Susanne hat gesagt…

I bet "Street maps" and "rain in spain" will become classics. Love the collection! I would make a scrappy bag.

skippie hat gesagt…

What a beautiful interpretation, from city to fabrics. Love the depth of colours and to win a bundle of fabrics would be the ultimate.

Rosa hat gesagt…

The fabrics are yummiest.Love the colorful fabrics.Barcelona is a bright and color city and this line has captured it.

I would love to make a quilt or a lap quilt and a bag.

Susan Hodges hat gesagt…

Barcelona is just a brilliant fabric collection. You have captured the feel and color palette of Gaudi. And the quilt pictured looks like the color spilling from the cathedral windows. Just stunning. You never disappoint!!

Cheryl Kirk hat gesagt…

The fabrics are beautiful and really remind me of our trip to Barcelona!

Lynn Dix hat gesagt…

Barcelona is a beautiful fabric line, very versatile. Like others I think the "Rain in Spain" would be a lovely background fabric and would enhance the other patterns. I would experiment with a block pattern that echoed the pattern of the tiles. Thanks for the opportunity of win some Barcelona scrap strips.

Mary hat gesagt…

Oh, Brigette, congratulations on a fabulous line of fabrics!! How exciting to see pictures of Las Sagrada Familia! I traveled to Batcelona last summer, and will definitely be buying some of this fabric to remind me of my trip.

I would love to make Shine Through.

hiyacinth hat gesagt…

These are beautiful--I am so impressed with Brigitte's fabrics! They are so distinctive. I have a multi-multi-fabric + and X quilt in progress, and blocks made from these scraps would be perfect!

Lisa Handley hat gesagt…

I love the collection. It's beautiful. Looking forward to seeing in it in my local quilting store soon.

Ramona hat gesagt…

I'm not sure what I love the most, your fabrics or your quilt patterns. Barcelona is a beautiful line.

Nancy M hat gesagt…

Another beautiful line of fabric. I am addicted to juggling summer! I love to see the inspiration behind the fabric. Barcelona is another triumph! Love the blue green hues.

Chris S hat gesagt…

These are again wonderful fabrics. I like the street plans and the dots. The blue and green is perfect for my kitchen. I´d like to make curtains and sets.

Liz DandeliondD hat gesagt…

I love Barcelona as a city and Gaudi's work is phenomenal. What great inspiration and the fabric line doesn't disappoint.

I can absolutely see those map prints making an amazing Gaudi inspired cushion, which I would love to make for my niece who is going to be 18 in September. She loves the city too, so it would be a really really special pressie for her.

Westfalenmaedel hat gesagt…

Tolle Farben und Muster, spanisches Sommer- feeling :0)
Ich würde irgend etwas mit Kurven nähen .
LG,Karin

HillyFilly hat gesagt…

Love them all.... It took me back to a great visit to this inspirational city...

Anita hat gesagt…

I love this new line! My sister visited Barcelona and she brought me back a post card calendar of Gaudi's achitecture in the city. I still have it somewhere. I would be overjoyed to win the scraps. Thank you for the chance to enter.

Mady hat gesagt…

Wonderful fabric collection! I like mosaic very much....
I think I would like to sew a quilt with a jelly roll of these fabrics....

mamarazza hat gesagt…

OMG!!!! Haben will!!!!!! Nicht nur, daß ich Brigittes Stoffe zum Niederknien finde - einschließlich der neuen Barcelona Serie - so ist auch Barcelona unsere Lieblingsstadt und die Werke von Gaudí sind einfach phänomenal.
Das schreit geradezu nach einem Traumquilt!!

Carol hat gesagt…

Another great line of fabric. I have fat quarter bundles of the first two, and this one is in my future. I can see a scrappy star quilt made with these fabrics.

Michi hat gesagt…

Liebe Brigitte!
Schon wieder ein Volltreffer, schöne Farben und Muster, sie wirken sehr dramatisch auf schwarz.
Ich würde einen Modern Log Cabin nähen.
Viel Erfolg in Portland!
LG Michi

Swedish Scrapper hat gesagt…

I've had Barcelona on the brain, so I am thrilled to see Brigitte's newest line, inspired by the fair city! I'd love to pair this fabric with some natural linen to echo the cement that is holding the glass, and make a quilt and a summer bag!

Lovely fabrics. I love the street maps especially. My son spent a year in Barcelona as an exchange student in college. I'm thinking he needs a bed quilt with them.

Trudi hat gesagt…

I've loved watching Brigitte grow since I first met her in 2009, I love this new line, so fresh and happy, a graphic quilt to snuggle under when the days get shorter would be fabulous. Have a great Market. X

LG, Britta

Telas maravillosas.
Son todas bellas.
Mi hija me pidió una colcha para cuando se va de campamento.
Saludos.:D

Tereza Lundáková hat gesagt…

This collection is amazing. I know, it is fabrics for patchwork, but I'd like to sew skirt.

Svea Polster Broughton hat gesagt…

i love the map prints that read almost like solids. always good to have some more 'textured' solids to chose from.

Dianne Neale hat gesagt…

Someone special is having a baby in October, so I would like to make them a special baby quilt. The fabric is beautiful - I love Barcelona!

Anonym hat gesagt…

Immer wieder wunderschöne, moderne Stoffe und Quilts, sehr nach meinem Geschmack.
Danke für die Chance

Michele Moskaluk hat gesagt…

I love all of the Barcelona fabrics! The quilts are lovely as well. Shine Through and 33 are probably my favors and I'd love to make a smaller Quiet Haven (I'm not ambitious or experienced enough for the full size!)

isa13 hat gesagt…

I think I am falling in love with Barcelona fabrics, and it's too difficult to make a choice between the patterns (maybe Shine through ?). It's a real discover for me because I am more used to traditionnal fabrics. I ish yuou the best for all your fabric collections.

Andrea hat gesagt…

This line is really beautiful! My sister loves Barcelona (the city) and has visited several times, so I think I would sew her a quilt as a wedding present from your new line, maybe "Shine Through"?!

Anyway, thanks for the giveaway!

koubkovi hat gesagt…

Deine wunderschönen Stoffkollektionen bewundere ich schon seit einiger Zeit auf allen möglichen Blogs und finde es spannend, jetzt auch die Designerin dahinter kenn zu lernen! Barcelona ist seit langem eine meiner Lieblingsstädte und Gaudi einfach ein Fest für alle Sinne. Aus den Stoffen würde ich eine Kuscheldecke als Geburtstagsgeschenk für ein besonders liebe Freundin nähen, für die ich sowieso gerade Stoffe suche :-) Danke für dein Angebot!

purduepam hat gesagt…

I love the line. I would love to make a skirt out of the map print.

lisabeth hat gesagt…

I love the new fabric line and all of her patterns!

Angela in Guam hat gesagt…

What a beautiful line of fabric and all those new quilt patterns are gorgeous! I especially love the 'Pure' quilt pattern; I'm thinking it will make a wonderful Christmas gift for a family member! Thank you for the opportunity and congratulations on the new line!
