Fall 2011 Trend: Quilty Pleasures

By Sewchicago @sewchicago

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.

Check out the quilting pattern on the boot — you don’t have to just use a single, straight stitch for quilting. Use quilting for texture and pattern. It doesn’t have to just be squares!

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.
