Studio E is honored to introduce Timna Tarr, a renowned quilt artist and teacher, as a new licensor for Studio E. Timna has created her first fabric collection called Noble Menagerie. This is a digital collection inspired by her quilts and the fabrics she like to use. Most notably, there is her Noble Menagerie quilt, made up of tiny scraps of fabric, that has been reduced to a 36-inch by 44-inch panel. The blocks in the panel are 10-inches square and focus on subjects that have lots of personality - they include a cat, dog, rooster, chicken, goat, llama, sheep and a pig. Another of Timna’s quilts that has been interpreted for this collection is of an aerial map that has been re-created as an all-over. As a scrappy quilter, Timna likes fabrics that can be cut apart easily to give a variety of colors and patterns so it was important that the fabrics in this collection would allow that. Each of the patterns has been designed with this in mind, but they can also be used just as easily in large pieces. Large and small florals, tonal stripes, chevron and a humorous Farmer’s Almanac ad pattern are other coordinates in the collection. The palette is in both warm and cool colors. The collection offers unlimited opportunities to create projects for quilting, home décor and many other sewing/crafting projects.
