This collection from Alexia Marcelle Abegg has all the beautiful autumn colors, mixed in with small dainty patterns and large scale panels that add beautiful contrast to any project. The Birdseed Panel is a great cheater whole cloth quilt, and the Songbird Patchwork is a cheater patchwork print for those who want that flair! This collection has so many fun, creative possibilities with an earthy color palette that will elevate any project idea you have.
Alexia's work is raw and a bit rough; she like to keep things from becoming too polished. She's very interested in makers' marks, so she does a lot of hand-processing, like painting or block printing. She believes there is an approachable aspect to a piece or print when you can see evidence of the artist's hand in the work.
Nashville-based, Alexia Marcelle Abegg was born in Folsom, California, on the day Mount St. Helens erupted. She has been inspired by her mother's and father's creativity and dedication to art throughout her life. After trying her hand at photography, acting, costuming, custom sewing, and many other creative pursuits, she found a home creating fine art quilts and sewing patterns while living in Brooklyn. She's also created a pattern company with her mom, Michelle called Green Bee Patterns and she was a founding designer of Cotton+Steel. She currently works mostly with clay, paper, textiles, paint, ink, and dye, and her hands are always moving.
