Alissa Haight Carlton of Handmade by Alissa has a new Modern Solids fabric line out, available in shops now!
Alissa is the author of Modern Minimal: 20 Bold & Graphic Quilts. She’s also founder and Executive Director of the Modern Quilt Guild, and the talented designer behind our first Block of the Month series here at Sew Mama Sew.
Alissa’s beautiful new solid line is all yarn dyed, cross weave fabric. The fabric is created by weaving two different thread colors together.
This weave gives the fabric beautiful drape, great texture and a depth of color you don’t see with printed fabrics. Here’s a fun look into Alissa’s process for selecting the colors in the collection, and here’s a look at one of Alissa’s latest quilts featuring the fabrics.
Alissa’s fabrics are a new “brights” addition to the line with twenty new Modern Solids II colors.
