Am SO GEEKED about my new fabric line for Cloud9, Lotus Pond! The strike-offs (test fabrics to check colors) came the other day in the mail and I am really really happy with how these came out.
We’ve got some small tweaks to make to the color yet, but I’m really happy with how close these are to what I had imagined. I can’t stop putting them in rainbow order. DORK.
And rearranging them to see which prints go with which…
I think these large scale florals are really stunning.
And here’s just a small glimpse at the color-picking process; this fall I sent Michelle at Cloud 9 some paper printouts of what I had in mind, since the colors we see on a monitor can vary widely from screen to screen. She sent back little swatches of fabric so I could pick the ones I thought were closest. Then the colors and prints go to the mill, and after a little wait…strikeoffs! Fun fun!
Lotus Pond will be printed on organic cotton and is due to hit stores this spring. I’ll be sure to let you know when it’s here!
