French Bull x Windham: Raj and Ziggy On the Horizon!

The past few collections we've featured have been relatively subtle in terms of color palette and overall design. Raj and Ziggy, two new collections designed by French Bull for Windham Fabrics, are here to shake things up a bit! Summer's still shining bright, and both of these groupings are a testament to this season of the sun. First, let's take a look at what bold, contemporary styling of Raj:

"Floral Repeat" from the Raj Collection

"Purple Paisley" from the Raj Collection

Saturated colors simple line work is the cornerstone of Raj, making it an attractive choice for a vibrant quilting project, a novelty apparel endeavor (such as a skirt, festive blouse or seasonal summer scarf) or home decor applications. The traditional paisley pattern and a bold floral print are shown here, infused with funk and mod styling, are begging to become a part of your fabric collection!

"Multi Chevron" from the Ziggy collection
"Speckled Chevron" from the Ziggy collection
Everyone knows that the chevron pattern is HUGE right now, and for good reason! It's a timeless pattern that is simple, bold and attractive in nearly any color scheme you can imagine. Ziggy takes chevron and runs with it, dressing it in cracking summer colors and pairing it with spin-off prints that add a cohesion to the entire collection. We'd love to see this project worked into a beach quilt, bedding material or even a loud and lavish skirt or dress!

Beverly's online fabric store will be receiving shipments of Raj and Ziggy in August. Be on the lookout for exciting projects and patterns for both collections! To stay up to date on the latest fabric releases and featured fabrics, keep in touch on Facebook and Pinterest.
