{Fabric Friday} quinnknits...

I first learned about Jess Quinn's textile creations via Kickcan & Conkers. I was so drawn in by her quirky & unique style. The legs of some of her characters reminded me of the artwork of my old roommate in grad school- which gave me a nostalgic smile. I've been following the twisted yarn blog ever since.

While I'm particularly fond of the quinnknits stuffed sculptures, the illustrations are gorgeous too. Excitingly enough, I just learned that Jess has been experimenting with Spoonflower lately!

I know I've mentioned this many times before, but this is a process that I'm particularly intrigued with - I love the idea of merging illustrations & textiles. I have had hopes to experiment with this process using my thread drawings, sometime in the near future. When I have a window of time open up (whenever that may be). Here are some examples of the fabrics that may be popping up in the quinnknits etsy shop soon. Aren't they cool? Happy Fabric Friday everyone! 


  1. They're amazing! I'd love to see what you could do ... squirrels with marimekko tshirts or owls with little vests! Cute.

  2. I am so pleased to see Jessica's work here, it's exactly the reason why I love blogging so much. I believe in Jessica, always have done.

    Have a great weekend!

  3. I had no idea she was doing fabric over at spoonflower!! I am crazy about it!! Thanks so much for showing me this KLT!! :) I wish she would do wallpaper, because I would seriously be over the moon.
