Fall 2011 Trend: Quilty Pleasures

I know, it barely feels like we’re getting out from cold weather and the Fall Trends are coming out. But, in case you’re a sewist who plans ahead, here’s one of the fashion trends that is being shown: Using quilting as texture.

From Women’s Wear Daily’s EyeScoop Online edition:

Quilting — that old hunting lodge requisite — is looking chicer than ever this fall as designers reimagine the classic sewing method, using it on everything from shirts and bags to even shoes and skinny jeans.
