    ... Elizabeth's Studio?

    They have some wonderful designs, but I don't think that they do the advertising that some of the larger companies do.

    I was just wondering how widely known they are in this community.

    They're probably best known for their "Fruit Ladies" and "North American Wildlife" groups.

    Now that maybe your memory has been jogged a bit... have you heard of them?

    No, but the North American Wildlife piqued my curiosity!

    I have seen the fruit ladies, and if the North American line is what your avatar is I have bought the bunnies and Loved it. So I guess in that sence I have heard of them, did not know the name before you told us tho.

    They have nice fabrics, including many novelty/conversation prints. They did the "Baby Talk" sign language fabric with the wonderful drawings from Joy Allen, author of the children's book, "Baby Signs". Nice line.

    Yes, and I think their fabrics are gorgeous! They should advertise more. :)

    Yes, Elizabeth's Studio did do the "quilts" group. They have more like that in the works.

    They've also decided to keep some of their more popular designs "permanently available classics". For this I'm really glad! Their classics include the landscape fabrics and the wild animals, plus some of the sports/music/games prints.

    Personally, I think their wildlife prints are second to none, in terms of realism and the finely detailed designs.

    Here's a link to their website. Actually, it's a blog. (I suspect they're not so tech-savvy.) And a blog does suffice to showcase their fabrics. They have some B-I-G pictures here so you can really see the details. Enjoy!

    My avatar is from Fabri-Quilt's "Backyard Bandits" group. It so happens that #1 son had a stuffed raccoon toy that was his favorite when he was little; that's why I chose the raccoon. (Sentimental...)

    Thanks Favorite Fabris! I've heard of them too. The "quilt" scenes are from Diana Phalen. She also does a line of quilt puzzle scenes.

    The fabrics were featured in the Winter '09 issue of Fabric Trends along with an article about Diane Phalen and a pattern from the Country Quilts collection.

    Wonder what the next set will look like---any chance of a preview?? :thumbup:

    I have some of the fruit ladies fabric, but couldn't tell you who made it. So although I have not heard of them by name, I do have some of their fabric.

    Does that help? :lol:

    Yes, I have ordered and used Elizabeth Studios fabrics, several times. They have vibrant colors and a very soft feel.
