Carnivale Fabric Collection

There is nothing more exciting to me than to see my artwork reproduced on physical products and this one has been particularly exciting for me.  In the fall of last year QT Fabrics created this fabulous fabric collection from my artwork.  It is called “Carnivale”.  This Carnivale Fabric Collection has truly exceeded all of my expectations!  The fabric was produced in October and shipped to stores in November.  By January QT Fabrics was already scheduling a second printing to meet the demand for the fabric.

It has been such a joy working with QT Fabrics!  Everyone there has been so amazing and such a delight.  Creative Manager – Tiffany Meredith Jawor-Smith said, “QT is thrilled with the response to the colorful and vibrant Carnivale collection!  Color is a universal language for quilters, and there are so many wonderful stores to be told – we look forward to seeing inspired projects developed and shared for years to come.”  I totally agree with Tiffany!

The main design of the collection is a fabulous flowing combination of my whimsical doodle flowers and shapes surrounded by delightful multi-color bubble dots in various sizes.  This main design comes in either a black background or white background.  This is the most popular design in the collection.

The second most popular design in the collection is the multi-color bubble dot design.  Like the main design this bubble dot design comes in either a black background or white background.

There is a total 14 fabric in all in the collection.

The part that I have enjoyed the most about the collection is seeing what everyone is making with the fabric.  Here are a few photographs that have been sent to me from others of items they have made with the fabric.

Judi Duncan made these pencil bags (of which I could use for a gillion different things).

Kim Benson made this large bag that would be great for carrying everything you need.  Kim has also made a bottle up bag.

I want to say thank you to each of these ladies for sharing the lovely work with me and giving me permission to share the photographs with you.

The second printing of Carnivale is scheduled to be shipped to stores the middle of April.  Hopefully these pictures will give you some ideas of what you can made from the Carnivale Collection.

If you have made something from the Carnivale Fabric Collection that you would like to share with us, we would love to see what you have made.  Please leave a photograph in comments below so that we can all enjoy it.

    1. Lynda, I wish I could, but I have no control over the production of fabric. You might want to contact QT Fabrics and see if they have distribution anywhere in your area. I hope you are able to find something!

    1. Sarah, Carnivale was produced a couple of years ago and it is getting more difficult to find. The only places that I am finding it on-line is on Etsy and at I hope this helps and that you are able to find it! – Debi

  1. Is there a charm pack or jelly roll coming with these fabrics? I’m imagining all kinds of exciting pieces

    1. Kelly, I don’t have these right now. I have sent your comment to my agent and we are working on it. If anything comes out I will let you know. Thank you so much for asking. I don’t know what people want if they don’t let me know. That doesn’t mean I will automatically be able to make it happen, but I am sure happy to at least give it a try! 🙂

  2. I love the fabric. When I saw it in the fabric store, I couldn’t resist. I made a beautiful tote bag, but for some reason, I wasn’t able to attach a photo here in the comments section.

    This is an absolute gorgeous collection. I bought some of it to fussy cut some hexes out and the kaleidoscope that forms are amazing!

    1. Thanks Laurie! I am constantly amazed to see how such talented people are using the fabric. I can’t wait to see what you make and I hope you will share pics of it with us!
