Dixie for Windham Fabrics

Dixie for Windham Fabrics

Can you believe it’s the last week in January??  I’m so glad.  I’m all for skipping the rest of this winter stuff and moving straight into spring and summer!   Speaking of summer…I get to share with you my 4th fabric line for Windham Fabrics, Dixie!  

I knew this line was going to come out during the summer, unlike my other lines that have come out late in the fall.  So I went for bright and happy and summery!   I also wanted this line to coordinate really well with my previous line Hazel.  Dixie is more vibrant, more saturated, and has a little bit of Southern charm, but also goes well with Hazel.

My favorite print to use so far has been the tile print.  It’s a versatile basic in colors that should blend perfectly into your stash.  There will also be 108″ wide backs using the tile print…and I loooove not having to piece the backing.

This cherry print was based off a favorite feedsack fabric I’ve had for years.  I bought a swatch of it in Amish country at a swap meet when I lived in Ohio in 2008, and now it’s finding new life.  My Mom whipped out the cutest apron with it:

I will have more Dixie and projects to share in the coming weeks and months, but for now I’m just happy to finally share with you this line.  If only our weather outside matched it!

  Dixie is available to quilt shops now through your Windham rep, and will be out in stores this summer.

    Love the line. I love Hazel, too. My mother and Grandmother’s names are Hazel and I got fat quarters of the line and made myself a quilt using it-such a lovely collection.

    It’s adorable! Congratulations!

  29. Vicki W. January 27, 2016 at 7:49 pm #

    Oh, that green. I can’t get enough!
    By the way (dorky fan girl moment) I’ve made two quilts using your raw-edge circle tutorial, and they are two of my favorite ever! And the first was made with a pile of uglies and random novelty prints (and a little magic Denyse-Schmidt-makes-everything-better), to boot! Ya just might be a genius!

  30. Sandy Gray January 27, 2016 at 9:28 pm #

    Love the new line coming out! I can’t seem to open the pin cushion link ;-/

    • Allison January 27, 2016 at 9:59 pm #

  34. Lara B. January 28, 2016 at 5:30 am #

    Oh this is soooo great Allison! I have a bundle of Hazel that is just waiting for Dixie. Both lines are so wonderful and look both modern and retro all at the same time. Great work designing!

  35. Cindy January 28, 2016 at 5:30 am #

    i love your new line, Dixie!! The prints and the colors are absolutely gorgeous- so, so pretty!! The little apron your Mom made is so cute!! The feedsack fabric mixes beautifully with your fabric!! I live in Ohio and one of my favorites for shopping for fabric is there in Berlin and Charm!:) I can remember you writing about the Amish way back then!:)

  36. Lindaroo January 28, 2016 at 6:08 am #

    Those cherries are delicious!

  37. Kathy January 28, 2016 at 6:11 am #

    Dixie – I love how you name your lines – simple & perfect. Your mom…..she has some serious creative sewing skills! I love everything about this line – congratulations! I’ll be getting my hands on yards & yards of this one, too!

  38. Rosemaryflower January 28, 2016 at 6:39 am #

    Beautiful fabrics and such fun colors! I am also a big fan of the 108″ wide backing fabric, so I am very excited about that.

    Love the fabric! Love the apron (your mom is talented) and pin cushion too! Very glad the fabric coordinates with your last line because I have some of that too!

  45. Berta January 31, 2016 at 12:59 pm #

    Love the colors! What is the quilt pattern in the first frame?

    • Allison January 31, 2016 at 4:12 pm #

      Hi Berta! That pattern is called Basket Case and is in my pattern shop, it’s one of my early patterns so you have to scroll down a bit to the bottom of the page!

    I just love your new Dixie Collection I have decided to redo my sewing room in these colors and I love that Aurifil has the matching threads this is so exciting I can’t wait to get started.

  51. Brenda July 6, 2016 at 7:39 pm #

    Love these bright, summery fabrics – perfect for sewing for my 7 year old granddaughter!

  52. Pat July 7, 2016 at 9:55 am #

    Hi, I love your fabrics & threads. Is a great idea to match thread with the fabric.
    Have been quilting for some time & have used only white thread but of late been thinking of using colors to match the fabrics. This would be a great time to start.
    Thanks for sharing.
