Tanya Whelan: New Fall Fabric Collection

I recently had a chat with talented Tanya Whelan of Grand Revival Designs, a designer of fabric and sewing patterns living in Belgium, about her new collection of fabric due out this Fall from Free Spirit. After catching a peek I couldn’t help but fall in love. And so here I am, sharing a glimpse of what Tanya has in store for us. She was so nice to send in such wonderful photos (most just shot over the weekend) to share on decor8 today. This new colorful line is called Dolce and you can watch her blog or the Fat Quarter Shop for updates on the exact launch date in both the U.S. and abroad.

    Lovely & luscious!
    Tany Whelan’s fabrics are the BEST!
    They always seem to capture the right mood or add the right touch.
    The hand of her fabrics is especially nice.
    Can’t wait to work with these fabrics!
