Adventures Fabric

Growing up in the Pacific Northwest left me with a deep affection for old-growth trees and the moss that grows on the north side of them. I recently visited Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks with my children and husband, and I was once again drawn to the patterns in the bark and the light filtering through the trees. Adventures is a graphic collection of the elements I see in these grand places.  Make sure to dress warm, use a map and create lots of memories as your Adventures unfold!

I put together this fun embroidery pattern, I opted to appliqué the mountains, but have another version in the works with embroidered mountains too!

One of my favorite prints to work on in the collection was this stripe on top, I converted the adventure sayings into morse code and included the text too so that everyone knew what was being said. There’s also a topography print, mountains, tree bark, plaid, bullseye and riverbed – they each represent a different part of nature that I love. I can’t wait to see what everyone makes with these prints!

The colors in the collection include a rusty red, golden yellow, evergreen greens, and glacial blues, along with my favorite neutrals including deep charcoals to light eggshells.

    Amy, your fabrics are beautiful and certainly do evoke Yellowstone and Glacier! We did an almost 3 month tour of National Parks a few years ago when I retired from teaching and absolutely fell in love with the Pacific Northwest and the beauty and wildness of our Parks. Although I was born in Seattle, I’d never been back since I was a toddler :( I’m looking forward to getting my hands on some of your fabrics–and recreate some memories of our trip.

    I think I’m going to love this line! I’m seeing lots and lots of masculine quilts that would appeal to pretty much anyone. Great work!

    Amy, today I gave my grandson a quilt for his birthday that I made using your Adventures fabrics. I was so excited to find this collection because he did the entire Appalachian Trail in 2016, and every design perfectly reflects his 5 1/2-month experience. His “Trail” name was Riptide, and I found a pattern titled that very name. In addition, a fellow quilter on FB suggested using the AT pattern for edge-to-edge quilting, which I found and was able to download for my long-arm quilter. Thank you for these awesome, masculine fabrics that helped me fulfill my hope of appropriately commemorating his significant accomplishment. (I’d be happy to send you a photo if you are interested.)
